Welcome everyone to the 11th annual Mod of the Year awards, a celebration of the best mods released in 2012 as well as the up and coming whom we hope edge towards release in 2013. For the next 30 days, it's time to recognize the dedication and creativty of so many hobbyist game developers who have given everything to their craft (which, in many cases amounts to years of development). 2012 was a massive year with horror mods like Cry of Fear and the hotly anticipated Black Mesa pushing our servers to their absolute limits with over 300,000 people in one day, all trying to play.
December could not have come around quicker this year and with all the buzz and excitement in the air it is a good idea to take a look at what we have planned for this years Mod of the Year.
