Welcome to the 8th Annual Mod of the Year Awards - the premiere event that celebrates the best creations within the modding and indie gaming scene. Developers have delivered plenty of great gameplay experiences this year, and now it is our turn as gamers to nominate and recognize the best of 2009.

From now until Feb 20th, we shall be sharing a year in review and showcasing the editors' picks of 2009, culminating in the announcement of this year's best mod and game as voted by you. 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 beanbags. Everything to help budding developers excel at their craft.

2009 has been a fantastic year for modding and indie gaming. With the highest amount of recorded featured releases ever on ModDB it can still go over the heads of most of our visitors.

2009 has been a fantastic year for modding and indie gaming. With the highest amount of recorded featured releases ever on ModDB it can still go over the heads of most of our visitors. Even with the help of the monthly ModDB Spotlight and the brand new Why Should I Play feature it still can be tough to soak in all the goodness that our dedicated community of Modders seems to be able to come up with. So as a last ditch effort to help bring out all the mods you SHOULD have played here is a year in review.

March 2009

March was a month with many ups and downs, first GDC and then a loss of a download provider. The one thing that wont change is that every month there will be a new Spotlight. So take a look at the featured mod and indie releases of March 2009!
