Ho ho ho Merry Christmas and merry Mod of the Year. 108,891 votes and 6,878,383 visitors over 20 days. We shovelled the punched ballot cards into the local ModDB super computer, ran our algorithms and watched the computer churn the raw data into our top 10 list. We lost the lives of many talented scientists and computer experts, but it was worth it because now we have something awesome to share with our community.

Your votes have decided this years Mod of the Year and the results speak for themselves.

To qualify for the top 10, the mod must place higher than it has in previous years and must have had a significant update in 2011. Otherwise an honorable mention is given, which these teams have received:

Placing very high once again Forgotten Hope 2 is still proving its relevance still in 2011. Having placed first in previous years you can't do any better than first place!
Project Reality: Battlefield 2 a staff favourite for years, and since its win a few years back PR has still be extremely popular within ModDB. No surprise that it receives another Honorable Mention.
while being a Star Wars IP Galactic Warfare is still just as popular as it was a last year, however like most honorable mentions it did not place high enough to be its previous best.
MechWarrior: Living Legends has once again proven that well designed mods do not go unnoticed. Placing very high once again this year, you cannot win twice!

you incarnate Jake Hawkfield, a Special Weapons and Tactics Operative, who recently got married and moved in with his beloved wife. But soon after those happy events his beloved wife dies in mysterious circumstances, only leaving clues that lead to believe in a suicide. Jake falls apart, and only his best friend, mentor and boss Frank is here to help him get over his grief.

9Republic at War
replacing the Empire with the Galactic Republic and the Rebel Alliance with the Confederacy. The mod will focus heavily on the Jedi Order with emphasis on the Jedi Council. There will be a full Single player Campaign as well as multiple sandbox modes that will allow the player to re-enact various campaigns of the Clone War such as the Outer Rim Sieges.

8The Last Days
After nearly 5 years, The Last Days Of The Third Age Of Middle Earth Mod 3.0, for Mount&Blade 1.011 (not for Warband) is, after many years, finally released! The previous version of this mod released in 2007 is still the most downloaded mod for the original Mount and Blade, surpassed only by two mods for Warband. Let's see how the newly released version will do!

There are many new features added to Blitzkrieg like a much more realistic Weapon damage system, new skins for infantry and tanks (and wrecks) also including many of custom tank skins, new units for all factions, modified and enlarged Commander Trees (now 16 Upgrades!), new abilities, new sounds and recommended new maps included!

6C&C: ShockWave
The main goal of this mod is to make Zero Hour a more interesting game with more diversity between the generals, making you think twice before you select a certain general, and overall provide more choices, diversity, and strategic freedom than in Zero Hour - while keeping the spirit and design direction of the original Generals game and storyline.

5The Stanley Parable
an experimental narrative-driven first person game. It is an exploration of choice, freedom, storytelling and reality, all examined through the lens of what it means to play a video game. You will make a choice that does not matter. You will follow a story that has no end. You will play a game you cannot win.

4CoH: Eastern Front
Following the ethos of mimicking a Relic Entertainment expansion pack, Eastern Front has succeeded in adding a full Soviet faction packed with unique and exciting units to the existing armies - a feat never before achieved in the Company of Heroes world.

3No More Room in Hell
the long awaited HL:2 zombie modification released back in October on Halloween. The mod is a cooperative survival horror game that focuses on moving from one objective to another. Players fight against a world full of AI controlled zombies, unlike most titles who deal with zombies there is a constant threat that your friends will turn into flesh eating monsters. Tread carefully.

2Third Age - Total War
a total conversion modification for 'Medieval II: Total War - Kingdoms Expansion' that brings you into the world of Middle-earth. The Production has been going since March 2008 and the mod is still well under development and boasts a variety of new features.

1Multi Theft Auto
a multiplayer mod for the Windows version of Rockstar North's Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas that adds an otherwise absent online multiplayer component. In 2009 MTA was officially distributed as the first open source release. This release abandoned the now obsolete "Deathmatch" tag in the product name to emphasize on the versatility of the software.

It's somewhat strange to me that underhell didn't get a higher place, still being on the list is good though. I really don't think that multi theft auto deserved that spot. Still ,they were deserved to be on this list, not exactly in this order though.

GTA4 might have tons of players but GTA:SA IS THE BEST! My opinion, no hate comments can change that.

Wow, very surprising that MTA actually won! But very glad to see it, it's gotten close the past 2 years iirc. I've had plenty of good times with this mod. It's also possible to script things into MTA, so the more exposure the mod gets, the bigger the community gets, and the better the mod becomes. Congrats! :D

Pity the winner has no artistic value.

Technical quality on the other hand is fantastic. Great mod here even if it's far from what I expect from a mod.

Moddb should separate awards for situations like this. Just saying "this is better than this one" is not really convincing.

lakecityransom Dec 29 2011 says:

Arguments against MTA seem to summarize as "ITS NOT PRETTY"... shameful.

Let me construct a real argument for you:

Maybe MTA won because it had a large player base and simply did a better job telling its player base to come vote. This is not against the rules, it is the surely the wish of MODDB to get more traffic and thus popularize the site more.

If anything maybe online based mods should be separated as they have better access to their fans.

I expected RAW to get a little better of a score than this, but it's nice to see it got on the list; that mod was in development for years.
Does anybody know if Multi Theft Auto works with torrented versions of the game? Otherwise I'll need to go buy a copy. I always wanted to play SA with multiplayer.

Also for people complaining about MTA and graphics, I don't see you complaining about Shockwave being on there, which is just as old (maybe older?). Shockwave is one of my personal favorite mods, and it's the only way I play C&C:GZH.

Ive heard of people using torrented versions of GTA:SA and getting MTA to work with it. But it would be better to just buy the game so u wont have a lot of problems and maybe some tweaking to get it to work, and u can get the game for very cheap now.

Alot are attaking MTA with this = "ITS NOT PRETTY"
Ye that is true, this is the only bad side of the mod, because in the other side the possibilities on it are endless.

Will be so awesome if gta V have an MP like MTA !
