Mod of the Year 2010 Players Choice - Mod of the Year

Posted by on

The time has finally arrived, the moment everyone on ModDB has been waiting for. After countless days spent voting, promoting and deciding it all comes down to this. 10 final placements for the very best mods that 2010 has seen. The victor will be able to stand tall against great mods like Project Reality, Natural Selection and MechWarrior! A big thanks to all those people who voted, its been a hell of a year and what better way to end it then announcing the Mod of the Year 2010.


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 2010. Otherwise an honorable mention is given, which these teams have received:

It is hard to knock a good mod down, that mod without a doubt this year is Project Reality. However being previous winner means Project Reality has reached the highest point, so they cannot place again. Thats just how good PR really is!
While Renegade X might be moving away from the modding scene with their UDK version players still decided that Renegade X would place high, just not high enough.
While MechWarrior: Living Legends may have already placed the highest it possibly can, it never stopped people from voting. To bad you can't beat being one of the top mods.
It has been a while since GoldenEye: Source has managed to place in the top 10 since the release of 1.0 popularity seemed to skyrocket! Lets hope they keep it up for next years event!
Always the brides maid never the bride Sven Co-op has been in every single MOTY event coming really close but never placing high enough to win.
Placing very high again this year Zombie Panic: Source just missed out placing once again this year.
Another mod just missing out on the top spot is Star Wars Mod: Galactic Warfare still well within the top 10 for Honorable Mentions!
The only mod to miss out on getting a spot in the top 10 only because they did not have any updates this year is STALKER Complete quite an accomplishment!


10Eleven Eighty Seven
Almost a decade after the black mesa incident which opened up the portal storms you find yourself trying to cope with its aftermath. They came without warning and swept the world. For no apparent reason you've been approached as in a dream by a man in a suit. Having no idea of what's going on all you can do is try to stay alive.

9Half-Life 2: Wars
brings the struggle between the human resistance and their Combine overlords to a real-time strategy setting. It features 3 game modes: Antlion Skirmish, Antlion Capture the Point, and Overrun, showcasing the Antlion and Combine playable factions. Future releases will include skirmish matches between Resistance and Combine.

8Blitzkrieg
touts a impressive list of new features such as a much more realistic Weapon damage system, many new skins for infantry and tanks (and wrecks) also including many own made tank skins, many new units for all factions, modified and enlarged Commander Trees (now 16 Upgrades!), new abilities, new sounds and recommended new maps included.

7C&C: Shockwave
aims 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.

6Nehrim: At Fate's Edge
is a Total Conversion for the RPG The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. It is a self-contained game that bases upon the Oblivion game engine, but has no relation to Oblivion's lore. It is a world in which neither Tamriel nor any other TES based name exists. The continent itself on which the game is situated is called Nehrim, it is completely independent from the base game.

5Eastern Front
is a mod for Company of Heroes. 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.

4Multi Theft Auto
is a multiplayer mod ("modification") for the Microsoft Windows version of Rockstar North's Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas that adds an otherwise absent online multiplayer component.

3Third Age - Total War
is 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.

2Nightmare House 2
is a total conversion for Half-Life 2. You wake up inside an abandoned hospital with no understanding of how you came to be there, only a vague memory of the girl from Nightmare House haunts you. Soon it will be difficult to determine between a dream and reality. How long will it take you to realize that escape is not an option?

1Forgotten Hope 2
is a mod for Battlefield 2. It aims to portrait World War II in a way no other multi-player first person shooter have done before, with a focus on historical accuracy and tactical gameplay. You can play as represent many different countries as a soldier and utilize an extensive arsenal of weapons and vehicles that accurately portrait the assets available in the real battles.

Ok, as a Project Reality player I accept the honorable mention since it won MOTY before. A big CONGRATZ! to those mods that made it here, in the top 10, and even to those that did not, every DEV deserves a big THANK YOU! and a pat on the back for their efforts... and, last but lot least, a very, very big THANK YOU! to ModDB staff for their efforts in organizing this copetition, and, just for doing their thing.

Merry Christmas to you all and A HAPPY NEW YEAR! See you in two-0-eleven -> 2011!

FH2 winning was a surprise, of the two BF2 mods in the running it's the far less popular one. It has quality content though and I like the how it beat 15 HL2 mods.

However, If anyone thought MOTY awards were just about votes they're sure mistaken now. It's actually up to what the judges think is fair.

black mesa didn't get a honorable mention. :) Maybe this will send hints to the black mesa team.

Hey Coolkid.

Yes they did.

"Is any explanation required? Without a SHADOW of a doubt, Black Mesa is the most hotly anticipated mod we have ever seen. The team may not update often, but when they do they stir up a frenzy and there is little doubt why. 2010 saw no release maybe just maybe 2011?"

Moddb.com

Black Mesa isn't released, they got Best Upcoming.(But due to the system they can't be chosen in the top 5 again since they do it every year, it's not considered fair / no major update.)

Besides that, what kind of message would it send? They've already shown they care little of Moddb.

First, congratz to all modding teams. Its a hard way to get to the release, if you think abou, that around 90% of mods die before release. So its fantastic theyve released, but more awesome that theyve created a fantastic product.
Second, thanks Henley for this christmas gift ;) Merry Christmas :D

What I don't understand is why Nightmare House is in front of Nehrim, I played both, they're both good, but Nehrim deserves much more than a poor #6.

On behalf of myself and the rest of the Half-Life 2: Wars team, we want to thank everyone who voted for us this year and the awesome Moddb community and staff for making all this happen. We came in 10th in 2008, now 9th in 2010 and hopefully we'll keep climbing in future years as our mod gets closer to completion.

Thank you one and all, and Merry Christmas!

Anyone who is interested in the slightest bit: try this mod out. It is only a download away. BF2 is in the $5 bin as we speak. See you on the battlefield!

Grats to Forgotten Hope 2, but I'll be honest here, I don't think it's exactly "fair" to have both SP and MP mods in the same competition, we all know MP > SP no matter what, but heck, it's just sport. ;)
