It's that time of year again. Time to vote for the best mod's of the year. Its also the perfect time to take a look down memory lane with the Mod Hall of Fame. Every mod on this list has earned its spot be it via commercial or critical acclaim and has influenced gaming in some way, so grab your popcorn and take a seat whilst we recap on the highlights of the last century, wow thats along time!

The modding community has helped shape the industry and games in general and it shows in this list. Almost every genre of game is represented on this list from team based first person shooters like Team Fortress to real time strategies like Complex for homeworld 2. Some mods in this list even helped create entirely new genre's.


Whats this madness! ModDB Has a YouTube Page?

That's right! ModDB Does have a Youtube page. Sadly its hasn't seen new content in quite sometime. That's where I come in! Hello, My name is CaptainShack, I've been hosting the channel TheXpGamers on YouTube for quite awhile now. Our tag line has always been "Where we support the modding community". I've made it my mission to make ModDB's Youtube channel a great place to find the modding and Indie video content and a great avenue to help support our developers! Feel free to contact me over on YouTube or at

I think that there are some, let's say glaring omissions, in that video/list.

Nice show, but I really miss some masterpieces of moding aswell as good know ones from the old days, like Firearms (Half-Life), Sven Co-Op (Half-life), Infiltration (UT99) and well I could continue listing, but I think everyone with age and knowledge know it.

Besides of that, is good to see an small footage of modding history :).

YES!! a YOUTUBE channel! Oh boy. A presence on that site is something I've been wondering for awhile now whether it would happen, because its a good idea.

not sure if the youtube channel is a priority right now. im a bit more concerned about the news section, cause all i can see is noname indie titles, instead of mod news. the two sites have merged.

2: would be nice to have a some sort of release calendar somewhere, cause most of the mod devs doesnt really know the possibilites of the site, some of them doesnt even know how can they get to the main page.

im not saying the youtube channel is a wrong thing, im glad that its active again.
