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.

Ok, I figured out what I did. What you need to do is install Source SDK Base 2006 in Steam. Then browse to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\sourcemods\gmod9" and find the gameinfo.txt file. Open this in notepad, and then scroll down until you see something say SteamAppID. The number that's to the right of this should be 220. Change this number to 215, and save the file. Then, restart Steam. After you restart Steam, gmod 9 should be in the library, and you should be able to start a singleplayer game. Hope this helps!

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 (5 agree) 1/10

Used to be great, but Garry's Mod 13 has utterly ruined every aspect of the game! Saves are broken, loading times take too long, the Workshop is a mess, the UI is downright ugly, some OFFICIAL maps don't work at all, textures are broken, it's so badly optimized even some HIGH-END PCs can have trouble running it, for a while you could actually receive a VIRUS from playing Gmod 13, EVERYTHING IS RUINED! And Garry has been falsely banning people from forums who give criticism to it's awfulness. I can…
