We know everyones tastes are different whether you like single player games, horror games, first person shooters or play exclusively HL2 mods. We work hard to cater to all tastes but doing so is like building a house out of straw (just ask mr.piggy how that turned out). At the end of the day we can only recognize the efforts of so many, we've tried something a little different in 2007 thanks to our communities feedback, so here is the 2007 list:

Mod of the Year Players Choice

  • Top 5 Released Mods
  • Top 5 Unreleased Mods
  • Top 5 Indie Games

Mod of the Year Editors Choice

Rules

The following are basic rules which apply to all participating teams. Read on for the full legal terms.

  • All active mods and indie games will show a "voting area" in their profile.
  • Any mod / indie game can make the top 100 (except for mods / indie games released in previous years which have not released a significant new version in 2007), however no mod / game can win in the same category twice. For example a mod cannot win "best unreleased" two years in a row, only a honorable mention will be given in this situation.
  • Exceptions to the above rule maybe granted on request by the Mod DB. For example if your mod moves from v1 to v2 and it is a total overhaul, we reserve the right to make it eligible again.
  • Furthermore, significant development progress must have been made in 2007 for a mod / game to be eligible to win a category. For example, mods and games made in previous years which have not been updated can only win a honorable mention in 2007.
  • Console indie games shall be eligible to win prizes in the 2007 awards provided at least 10 make the final top 100 cut
  • In phase 1, all members and guests of the Mod DB can nominate as many mods as they want to appear in the top 100.
  • In phase 2, all members and guests get to pick their top 3 mods and games from the top 100 list.
  • Any attempt to game the system and falsely inflate your votes count will result in an immediate disqualification. We will be analyzing all votes and will contact mod teams if we detect suspicious activity.
