Killing Floor is a survival horror total conversion set in London, England. In a laboratory under the city, a series of human experiments in cloning and biological augmentation are being conducted by the employees of "Horizon". Horizon is a BioTech corporation formerly employed by the government to do the R&D on a top secret series of synthetic combat drugs which would enhance the effectiveness of soldiers in the field. Horizon's funding was cut, when their practices were deemed too immoral even for such a controversial project, but the research didn't stop. Funded by private money from the deep pockets of Horizon chairman and research scientist Kevin Clamely, tests continued in a more...private location. That was until something went wrong. There were reports that the lab had been comprimised; that the subjects were behaving abnormally...then, silence. Several days later, twisted shapes began to emerge from the confines of the lab into the city above.
The gamers and players have spoken and picked their favorites and to keep things interesting, we didn't totally agree. Now it's time for the Mod DB editors to step up and tell you what we were playing in 2006.

There are a whole lot of mods, both released and in development, that are really quality products and have had blood and sweat and tears poured into them. Mods represent some of the most ingenious and innovative developments in the gaming world, and are all done by hobbyists and enthusiasts.
It is this time of year that we actually take the time out to recognise these mods and try to reward the amazing efforts people put into their work. Our Players' Choice awards show which mods have done something right, something that has allowed them to develop their own communities and fill servers up with players enjoying the end result of all the hard work.
Yet, as those who do the housekeeping around Mod DB, we feel that there are other mods that shine. These mods have a certain something about them that stands out to us. We want to recognise the mods that have an exceptional aspect that gives them a certain edge. Sure, we wish we could give out more awards, and there are many, many worthy candidates, but after much deliberation (read: bickering and whining), we have decided which mods stand out to us, and we plan to tell you why. Not all of us agreed with the awards and, unlike previous years, we felt it important to share many different viewpoints with the winners. Hopefully, this will give you a wider perspective towards these solid and noteworthy mods.
