Report article RSS Feed 2008 Mod of the Year Winners

After 114,000 votes, you have chosen this years top 10 mods.

Posted by Henley on Mar 2nd, 2009
Event Coverage

This is it, the big one... the one everyone is waiting for: the result decided by you and 115,000 other gamers who voted for their favorite mods in January. As always, we expect the results to be argued - but one thing I think we can all agree on is that 2008 was a top year for mods, with 150 high-profile releases. 2009 is already on track to beat that number, but for now, it is time to showcase the very best of 2008!




Honorable Mentions

We would like to recognize the mods Insurgency (Half-Life 2), Sven Co-op (Half-Life), Empires (Half-Life 2), Forgotten Hope 2 (Battlefield 2) and Dystopia (Half-Life 2) which have placed higher in previous MOTY awards and therefore were not included.

Eternal_Silence wrote:A massive deep space artifact from long-gone Earth was found and spawned a renaissance on the human colonies of the United Terran Forces. A gigantic assault from the UTF on the now independent colonies spawned the Neo Galactic Militia and started a deep space war the likes of which the world has never seen.

With a melee combat system that's unique to the modding community, game modes you won't find in other games and parrots that can be trained to peck at enemies, it's no surprise PVKII is so entertaining!

5.Zombie Master
Half-Life 2

Zombie_Master wrote:Zombie Master is a multiplayer Source modification, centred around a zombie-apocalypse, which throws all but one player in the shoes of human survivors. Pitched against a relentless tide of rotting flesh, they must scavenge for weaponry and equipment just to stay alive. But that one player, chosen randomly at the beginning of the round, is not bound by mortal restraints. To speak his name is to invite the wrath of hell - but most call him the 'Zombie Master'. He is nigh omnipotent. His invisible hand controls the legions of undead like puppets on strings; slowly closing the net on the humans while they run to and fro like rats in a maze.

The goal of First Strike is to totally immerse the players into the amazing universe of Star Wars by presenting the most accurate representations of famous Star Wars locales, weapons, and characters, and combining them with exciting, fast paced gameplay and features new to the Battlefield scene. Within this mod you'll find yourself as a soldier of the Galactic Empire or as a freedom fighter for the Rebel Alliance. You'll fight across lovingly detailed recreations of various Star Wars locations with a wide array of weapons and vehicles.

3.Portal: Prelude
Portal

Portal:_Prelude wrote:Portal: Prelude, as its name states it, is an unofficial prequel to the game Portal. Its story revolves around the pre-GlaDOS epoch, even before she was plugged in. At this time, test subjects were monitored by real Aperture Science employees, whose work was tedious, lengthy and repetitive. This is why they decided to build a great artificial intelligence that could both replace them in these difficult tasks, and also take responsibility for many other tasks within the complex and compete with Black Mesa's superiority. All employees of the Aperture Science complex are now eagerly awaiting GlaDOS. Maybe even a little too eagerly, as the upcoming events will tell... This game is totally free. It offers a bit more gameplay hours than the original Portal, with 8 chapters, 19 test chambers, 48 challenges, 6 advanced maps, a brand new storyline and more than 400 lines of english speech with dozens of subtitles translations.

2.Zombie Panic: Source
Half-Life 2

Zombie_Panic:_Source wrote:Zombie Panic: Source is a co-op oriented Survivor Vs Zombie multi-player survival horror modification for HL2. While our main priority is to make the mod as fun to play as possible, ZP:S plans to greatly expand on the core features of "Zombie panic" For HL1, with the obvious new features, impressive visuals, and of course atmospheric maps. More importantly ZP:S will not force players to fend against dumb and predictable AI, but instead keep the same intense thrill of surviving against intelligent and persistent player controlled zombies as the original.

1.Project Reality
Battlefield 2

Project_Reality wrote:Welcome to "Project Reality", a free to download game modification for the Battlefield 2 (aka BF2) retail Windows game. The focus of this mod is to rework the original game engine developed by Digital Illusions of Sweden (Dice) within legal and feasible constraints to create a more realistic combat environment for the gaming community. This includes adjusting various game play elements including physics, visual effects and overall game play formats. Along with changes to how the game handles, the Project Reality team has been introducing British and Insurgent factions, plus a number of community assisted factions are currently in the works to introduce Canadian, Russian and IDF forces to the virtual battlefields. This Mod is not for the masses, due to the fact that it has a much higher learning curve then your classic arcade game. This is the real deal.

I have to say I am quite disappointed. I know that they have done a lot of work, but the way these types of mods are rewarded is just sickening.

Two years in a row now we have had elitist developers who have created "realism" military shooters win. (I call them elitist because both mods have the attitude that if didn't like their design decisions then you should not be playing, therefore weeding out their fans to the people that agree with them). Both mods have also recently recoiled from some of these decisions.

Maybe these are popular, but it shows just how infantile most gamers are if they will only vote for things that make them feel like they are "real" soldiers. Not to mention that PR's "realism" is a laughable combination of arbitrary rules and long timers. I have attempted to give this mod a shot to win a place in my heart countless times, but everytime it turns into a frustrating world of unintuitive gameplay.

Maybe some artistic talent and creativity will be rewarded by the players next year since hopefully we will be out of "realistic" mods to fawn over (though everyone will be playing ArmA II, OperatoinFlashpoint 2, and COD 4.2). Even Star Wars and Stargate mods are starting to look like creative masterpieces in comparison.

Congrats to all the mods that took a risk and created your own artistic vision.

You are saying that mods shouldn't force any kind of vision of how their own gameplay should be? We have every right to determine what our game should be. And yes, people that enjoy those design decisions will be our supporters and apparently we have a few.

Also you say the players are infantiles for playing these games and that you tried and didn't like it. That's fine, it's not for everybody and no game is. You can't argue with taste.

Then you are saying that more artistic and creative mods should win. Should be about their work, not their popularity. But this is "Players choice", it's all about popularity. There's "Editor choice" for a reason. And you can't say Project Reality isn't an artistic and creative team. If you do, it's just for pure ignorance.

"Not to mention that PR's "realism" is a laughable combination of arbitrary rules and long timers."

It is the closest thing to realism possible in the BF2 engine with comprimises for gameplay. How far it should go is debatable but in the end it's the developer's choice.

The rules are not arbitrary to me, they often exist to encourage teamwork and sometimes as a workaround due to engine restrictions.

The long timers (whilst perhaps a little too long for my personal taste) also exist for good reasons, in the case of spawn times it is a way of making people value their player's lives more without giving them only 1 life per round.

It's not for everyone (as the developers clearly state), even for those that do have interest in the mod it still takes patience and a willingness to learn. At times I think it can be slow or boring or frustrating but it pays off with great experiences. It can also vary greatly on the team/squad/server/map.

"I have attempted to give this mod a shot to win a place in my heart countless times, but everytime it turns into a frustrating world of unintuitive gameplay."

Well at least you tried it.

The last part of your post seemed to imply that Insurgency and Project Reality are not artistic or creative which I disagree with but consider up to personal opinion/taste.

I find it ironic that you credit other mods with taking risks when you personally bash INS/PR developers for risking player losses by sticking to their design decisions instead of obeying the arcade-loving masses.

Misnomer, I'm sorry you don't like our mod. But the fact that you you're mistaking "people wanting to play pretend" and "enthusiasts of real life military teamwork & tactics" completely negates everything you say. The "laughable combination of arbitrary rules and long timers" are there for reasons you clearly do not understand because you label them as such.

Tactical FPS's are clearly not for you, so perhaps you shouldn't critique them so much. It would be like me writing a review for a Britney Spears album.....

Despite your quasi-erudite phrasing, your argument against Misnomer is essentially, "you just don't get it." And suggesting that the pejorative instance of your same phrase re: enthusiasts might somehow "negate everything" he says is, well, it's as laughable as the arbitrary rules and long timers in PR.

They were rewarded by democracy, would you prefer to dictate to everyone what the best mods are based on your own opinion? Or did you forget for a moment that this was player's choice MOTY?

"(I call them elitist because both mods have the attitude that if didn't like their design decisions then you should not be playing"

They have every right to stick to their design decisions.

"Both mods have also recently recoiled from some of these decisions."

Oh really? I've seen the opposite trend.

"Maybe these are popular"

They are popular, they got the most votes...

"it shows just how infantile most gamers are if they will only vote for things that make them feel like they are "real" soldiers"

That's rich calling others infantile when you bash mods because their developers don't do what you want them to do. Spoilt toddlers have a similar attitude.

Some probably do pretend to be soldiers, some probably will become soldiers and some already are soldiers. But we both don't really know why the realism mods are so appealing, it could be several reasons depending on who you ask.

Misnomer Mar 3 2009, 5:42pm replied:

Once again the responses show the types of players that would vote for such games. You can question whether or not it is gamers "playing soldier" or not, but there are some clear indicators.

The same people who play these games tend to laugh at games like Team Fortress 2. Does it promoted teamplay and tactical cooperation? Yes, perhaps even more so than PR and INS (that due to limited realism mechanics promote hoarding the "best kits".) But because it is cartoonish and not at all "real" tactical teamwork in TF2 is sub-par to these players.

My point is not that TF2 is the most glorious game, but because these players want to feel like hardcore military types they refuse to see other games with artistic vision as providing the same level of gameplay. That is my problem. The bias towards realism simply because it is macho, not because of gameplay.

Also, when I say that these realism mods have recoiled, it is because recently their patches have undone "realism" factors in favor of gameplay enhancements. Many of these enhancements were asked for by fans, but they were harassed out of the community for "not getting it."

Before anyone tells me that PR is artistic again, I granted that there is a lot of work....but it is just going into trying to match photographs. I'll just be laughing when a major world military decides to get a cease and desist because they have copied trademarked materials.

Come to think of it America's Army 3 is coming out soon...I think they do hold the trademarks on the names and designs of their equipment.

Its not so much about "being a real soldier", Its about playing a game with teamwork unmatched by any other FPS to date - this is unorganized, passive teamwork I'm talking about, which is so rare in a game let alone a mod that PR stands out from every other mod that adds a brand new universe and gameplay style to the original engine.

You clearly havn't even played Project Reality - that, or you probably joined a server, attempted to run off by yourself and got shot up. People who stick with the game are players who enjoy working together to achieve a common goal on a large scale.

Any other game can do this if it wants to. Any game or mod can add teamwork mechanics into its structure to increase its appeal to players who enjoy this kind of play-style. Think of Project Reality as a high grade teamwork mod, built upon a modern, realistic Military theme. The realistic theme simply adds to the immersion - its not that we all suddenly feel like real soldiers although the game forces you to think like one on a small scale, which makes it such a refreshing change from the average FPS coming out these days.

The sooner you drop the "FPS gamers are all retards" mentality and find the ones that focus on things other than arcade style gameplay then the sooner you'll appreciate them.

Also, in the absence of persistent score tracking and rankings like on many other games, PR becomes a game where you play for the sake of playing - not for the sake of getting the highest rank possible. Everyone has a role, and everyone contributes to the team and for a game that lacks "artistic vision" it is one of the only games that gives a new experience everytime you play it.

When moddb first started the MOTY it was me just writing who I thought looked good and deserved some proper promotions and I based the selection on if your mod was cool and if you had over 10 thousand downloads. Everyone hated the idea of me selecting mods and thus the voting became the way moddb did it. American idol you got to call in to vote and with moddb you must click it to get it.

The amount of people who seemingly despise PR (probably because it won)fail to understand it is still a game alot of people thoroughly enjoy, and for those complaining about the long spawn times and other 'annoying' features they are all there for a reason. Maybe, you just don't enjoy playing it and that is perfectly fine. But coming here like a sour grape raving on about how much it sucks is a way of showing how truly childish and immature you must be.

For a mod that recieves NO. I repeat NO support from EA in its many years of development, it still rises up as an extremely addictive game filled with the highest quality of content and innovation done on an engine that seemingly hardcodes every byte of data.

For those saying Zombie Panic Source should have won first place, very well, if you love it and so many others do as well then they and all of the other mods deserve Mod of the Year in a sense. But don't say it deserves it because they put so much time into it and none of the other mods did. In case you don't follow PR, it also, like any other mod requires ALOT of time to make something that has to adress thousands and thousands of balancing issues, content, sounds, maps, weaponry and huge code changes allowing it to do what other mods on BF2 havn't been able to suceed with. On top of that, it sets itself aside from Vanilla in nearly every way imaginable.

Congratulations on all the other mods that got the top 10, and thankyou for all the hardwork put in over the years.

Project Reality won for a reason, and it shows that they put a ton of work into the mod. In fact all of the mods here clearly put forth a staggering amount of time, and anyone who has participated in a mod knows it. To make a mod takes a lot of time. To make a successful one takes even more.
