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 content RSS feed Coming SOON: Top 100 of 2008

We are currently working around the clock to bring you the top 100 mod and indie games of 2008, read on for the countdown.

Posted by on

Each year after two weeks of hard fought voting (58,000 votes to be precise) we announce the top 100 of 2008. Unlike other "best games awards" you see on the internet time and time again, we focus entirely on the greatest mod and indie games and we let you decide which make the cut and which don't. The rules are simple, the same mod and indie can make the cut provided they made significant process in the past year. Why? Because we know mods are continually evolving and are not dumped once released in favor of a new money making title.


So sit tight, we have the top 100 and will be launching with a big splash in precisely 24 hours (at the time of writing). A couple of days late I know - don't worry you'll still have another two weeks to play and vote for your favorites in the top 100 as we narrow down to the top 10.
