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 beanbags. Everything to help budding developers excel at their craft.

2009 has been a fantastic year for modding and indie gaming. With the highest amount of recorded featured releases ever on ModDB it can still go over the heads of most of our visitors.

2009 has been a fantastic year for modding and indie gaming. With the highest amount of recorded featured releases ever on ModDB it can still go over the heads of most of our visitors. Even with the help of the monthly ModDB Spotlight and the brand new Why Should I Play feature it still can be tough to soak in all the goodness that our dedicated community of Modders seems to be able to come up with. So as a last ditch effort to help bring out all the mods you SHOULD have played here is a year in review.

February 2009

With MOTY 2008 wrapped up, the focus is back on the releases of February 2009. Quite a slow month heavy on the Half-Life 2 Steamworks releases and updates, with a few Indies for good measure.

None of you guys have any idea, much less any appreciation for the HL2 universe at all. I don't believe you even played it.

Not to nitpick, but how come MEC2 is mentioned in the video...but not listed with the other mods as a "featured release"? Or listed as a "related mod" on the right?

Yes, Strider Mountain wasn't too good. Wrote a review on it, and decided to give it a 5.5
