Welcome to the 7th Annual Mod of the Year Awards - the premiere event that celebrates the best creations within the modding and indie gaming scene. Developers have poured their blood, sweat and tears into creating new gameplay experiences that truly "change the game". Now its time for the gamers to voice
their opinions and select their top picks of the year.

**Presenting the 2008 Winners**


From now until Feb 28th, the MOTY will present to you the cream of the crop for 2008 as voted by the public. The top mods and games will win the honors of being placed alongside other projects that have gone on to become commercial successes and cement their place in ModDB's hall of fame. And to the winner goes the spoils; ModDB has teamed up with a whole lineup of sponsors that have provided prizes ranging from software to servers to commercial engines. Everything to help budding developers excel at their craft.

 

Report article RSS Feed Top 100 of 2008

After 2 weeks and 58,736 votes, we have narrowed 4,000 mods and indie games to the top 100.

Posted by INtense! on Jan 18th, 2009

Each year when we announce the top 100, much discussion rages on about the titles that made it and those that didn't. Everyone has their favorite, the one they root for either vocally as a fanboy, or nervously praying the title they are passionate about isn't abandoned like so many mods and games these days. We do our best to give all mods and indies a shot and the rules are simple. All titles are eligible (released or unreleased, old or new) provided they HAVE made significant progress in the past year. This year 51 new titles enter the ranks, alongside some classics which continue to make it year after year. So without further banter, I present to you, your top 100 of 2008!
