Mod of the Year 2007

80,000 votes. 4,000 mods. Only 10 winners.

Mod DB and the 5th Annual Mod of the Year Awards is the definitive event that showcases the best mods in the world and recognizes the mod 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".

Mod DB brings you the best mods in the industry. You decide which ones are worthy of recognition. At the top of this program sits the ultimate prize... the Mod of the Year Award! Thanks to our sponsors, this year we have greatly enhanced the program with video content, interactive features and top shelf prizes.

From Nov 15th 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 & which mod teams attain gaming celebrity.

For those new to mods, a modification is a variation of an original game that can be freely downloaded. These variations can be minor or epic in scope. In brief:

  • Mods unlock and expand the incredible power of games
  • Mod making is an art form that empowers creative expression

For the first time ever, Mod DB takes a trip down memory lanes and digs up the top 100 mods from past Mod of the Year Awards.

Posted by INtense! on Jan 3rd, 2008

Until now, only the top 100 mods from 2006 and 2007 were ever revealed. Today after shifting through the sites old data we decided to dig up the old top 100 mods from 2002 onwards, so you can take a trip down memory lane and see what mods were hot way back when Counter-Strike was still growing, Half-Life 2 didn't exist and fuel cost the same price as a big mac meal.

It is a great mix of classic mod titles from Half-Life 1, Quake 1, Tribes, Unreal Tournament (basically all the big-name games) before 200 sequels were made. Enjoy!

The original CS and DoD mods :) Just goes to show what can come from modding. There seems to have been an ever increasing pool of games modded that are reaching the top 100 as the years have progressed.

It would have been nice to see what actual positions in the TOP 100 our mods actually reached at the end of all these awards.

Position is irrelevant, I dont see why you would want to know where things placed

How's is position you finish in irrelevant in any competition, as it's something every competitor likes to know, i.e how well he or she did, as it can give you that much needed boost to continue your hard work.

I also recall you posting that you were in fact going to post this information this year.

This is also got to be the maddest competition that i've seen, as your entered without being given the choice & then when it's all over your not told where you came in it anyway, unless your prize winner, pure madness.

I think it's really interesting to have names. having a list of them in position shows who was popular in each year.

I hope we get a list of positions this year

Here, Here

as without this the competition seems all a bit pointless to many of the TOP 100 entries that never realy had much of a chance of winning a TOP 3 spot anyway.

It is lame to see the same mods for HL2 every year since 2004, there are mods that yet haven't finished but just wonder around those pages.
