Mod of the Year 2007

Welcome to Mod DB and the 6th Annual Mod of the Year Awards - the definative event that showcases the best mods and indie games in the world and recognizes the 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".

Over the coming months we will showcase to you the best mods and games in the industry. You vote for those you believe are worthy of recognition. At the top of this program sits the ultimate prize, the mod of the year award won previously by Natural Selection, Red Orchestra, PoE2 and Garry's Mod. Thanks to our sponsors, this year we have a few surprizes up our sleaves not to mention a slew of prizes for the participating teams.

From Dec 1st 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 and which mod teams attain gaming celebrity.

Follow the links to join us on an unforgettable journey as we present the 2007 Mod of the Year.

Here at ModDB, we are always looking for an opportunity to put mods into the spotlight. So it is with great pleasure that we announce the syndication of the top 100 list of this year's Mod of the Year contest on AMD GAME! This puts the, approximately, 5 million visitors that AMD GAME! attracts in view of the top 100 with the ability to peruse the list and and vote without leaving the page. All this means more exposure and more votes for all of you who made it this year. Plus because this list will remain indefinately on the AMD site, it will be a great way for the best mods to continually attract new (casual and hardcore) gamers.

In light of this news and the delayed start on phase 2 voting, ModDB has extended the voting period to January 3rd, 2008. Good luck to all of those involved and thanks to AMD GAME! for making this the biggest Mod of the Year contest yet!

It's in the TOP 100.

All i'll say is that if a mods still being made & theres a lot more work that's been done on it since it last won, then why shouldn't it be allowed to keep winning untill its released, as it should be judged on its new content & not the work that was all ready done.

Supposedly it can't win. However, and ironically enough, Mods that aren't in the top 100 can receive awards, as seen in MOTY 2006.

To win a Players' Choice award the mod has to be part of the Top 100, but Editors' Choice awards can be anything which catches our eye.

Quote: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.

This means even if black mesa gets 5000000000000 votes, they can only get an honorable mention.

Good to see the extra exposure through the AMD site and yes, AMD bought out ATI, thus the cross promotion on their website....
