GMod is a Sandbox Modification.

Using GMod you can pose ragdolls. This means can position people from HL2/CS/DoD and change their faces. A big comic book creating community has popped up around this feature.

Using GMod you can build. Take props from HL2/CS/DoD and weld them together to make walls. Axis a wheel to it to create a working car. Rope some cans to the back. A big contraption creating community has popped up around GMod - creating such things as Rube Goldberg devices, catapults, cannons, bridges etc..

Using GMod you can make your own weapons. That's right, make your own weapons. Using Lua you can create a custom weapon to do just about anything. If you're new you can change simple things like rate of fire, models, sounds. If you're awesome the world is your oyster, mass changing guns, melon cannons, jetpacks.

GMod gives you the freedom to do any of these things in single player or online with your friends.

For those of you out there who are interested in things like this, Garrys Mod (MotY 2005) is now available via Steam for the incredible price of $9.95 (Plus tax) if you have a Steam game already installed, or as a bundle with CS:S for $24.95 (Again plus tax).

If you're curious about how this affects its standing on Mod DB, we will still continue to support this as it is a modification of the original engine. It is, however, now listed in the games section which will enable you all to add your own mods (Modmods?) and addons to this site and our sister site, Addon DB.

As a side note, Steam now accepts PayPal for purchases so all you people stuck with debit cards and bank transfers can buy games.

Maybe all the huge YouTubers that keep playing it? I dunno. But this game definitely doesn't deserve the attention it gets. Gmod 13 is completely broken.

Gmod 13's not bad,I like the new workshop. However, it IS the laggiest version I've seen so far, so I partway agree. On newer machines it's not bad though.

Highest Rated (11 agree) 10/10

Garry's mod is a Sandbox mod, it's very difficult to give a "rating" to a game where you just build and do what you want. The criteria to judge it are, in my opinion the following: -Tools at your disposal -Amount of possibilities -Flexibility of the engine -Stability of the engine -How often is the game updated And by those criteria, I can say that Garry's Mod deserves a 10, with countless tools, that can even be downloaded, same as for maps and models, and even LUA scripts that was implemented…

Lowest Rated (9 agree) 3/10

This game USED to be fantastic; one of the best games ever made. But then the Garry's Mod 13 update utterly ruined every aspect of the game! Saves are broken, loading times are way too long, the Workshop is blatantly worse than its predecessors ( & Toybox,) the UI is downright ugly, its so badly optimized even some HIGH-END PCs can have trouble running it, for a while there was an exploit that allowed your computer to become infected with a virus via Gmod servers, even BASIC features…
