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:
To all of the 2006 MOTY Sponsors that support Mod DB, the mod community and the pursuit of our passion, a sincere thank you on behalf of the entire Mod DB community. Your recognition and support of the Mod of the Year Awards and the mod teams who spent countless hours pushing the limits of the game industry and shaping the future of interactive entertainment allows us all to "play something different!"
Your support enables Mod DB to provide developers and gamers with the premier destination on the web to experience mods and the thrills that they provide. As a result, the Mod DB community will continue to flourish and publish the best and brightest mods while maintaining a forum for creative expression and resulting recognition that makes Mod DB the most incredible gaming destination on the web. A sincere and heart felt thank you for your support!
