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.

We're doing things a bit different this year, read on to find out how and why.

Posted by on

This year, we've had more time to prepare for MOTY and more resources to do it with as well. As a result we have a total of 7 Editors' Choice Awards to dole out. We'll be releasing each award as a separate video in the days leading up to the Player's Choice Awards. Which means the first video will be posted on the front page in about 24 hours from now. For those that are interested, here's the full list of Editors' Choice Awards:

This has been the biggest Editor's Choice section in the history of Mod of the Year, partly due to the growing community around our site. It has been a large undertaking with much deliberation and we hope that our choices lead many to discover some of the hidden (or not-so-hidden) gems of mods or indie games that are part of the ModDB community. Watch the MOTY group to stay on top of all the updates as they surface!
