Mod DB and the 5th Annual Mod of the Year Awards is the definitive event that showcases the best mods in the world and recognizes the mod teams behind them. The MOTY is a tribute to the creativity, dedication & hard work independent developers put into creating unique gaming experiences that enable us to "Play Something Different".
Mod DB brings you the best mods in the industry. You decide which ones are worthy of recognition. At the top of this program sits the ultimate prize... the Mod of the Year Award! Thanks to our sponsors, this year we have greatly enhanced the program with video content, interactive features and top shelf prizes.
From Nov 15th to Jan 1st, industry professionals, developers, gamers and the general public cast their votes to decide which mods define the cutting edge of interactive entertainment & which mod teams attain gaming celebrity.
For those new to mods, a modification is a variation of an original game that can be freely downloaded. These variations can be minor or epic in scope. In brief:
For the first time ever, Mod DB takes a trip down memory lanes and digs up the top 100 mods from past Mod of the Year Awards.

Until now, only the top 100 mods from 2006 and 2007 were ever revealed. Today after shifting through the sites old data we decided to dig up the old top 100 mods from 2002 onwards, so you can take a trip down memory lane and see what mods were hot way back when Counter-Strike was still growing, Half-Life 2 didn't exist and fuel cost the same price as a big mac meal.
It is a great mix of classic mod titles from Half-Life 1, Quake 1, Tribes, Unreal Tournament (basically all the big-name games) before 200 sequels were made. Enjoy!
