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.
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.
Special thanks to everyone who took part in this year's contest.

Well, another Mod of the Year event is done and dusted. It's been the biggest (and most work-intensive) one so far in ModDB's history and hopefully we can keep adding to it in some way every year. This year's event spanned over a week and a half gradually revealing the awards. What many don't know is that MOTY 2008 was the culmination of months of planning with about 2 and half weeks of sleepless nights spent gathering footage, video editing, recording voiceovers, writing news posts on top of all our other regular duties. Special thanks goes out to the following people, without whom this year's MOTY wouldn't be possible:
To all the sponsors that want to support the modders and indie developers we thank you for your participation.
Thanks to the winners for making such great mods that we can all enjoy. Finally, thanks to all the gamers and developers out there that have helped ModDB grow and MOTY become an anticipated event every year for thousands of people. These awards are meant to celebrate the modding scene as a whole and put it front of more people who aren't aware of its existence. Regardless of any awards or prizes, all mod teams should strive to do what they're doing not to win a contest, but because they share a passion to develop and change the game.
