From the 1st of December to the 21st we asked quite a bit of our community, we asked that you decide what mods you thought were are the top dogs for 2012. We tallied up the votes for best upcoming mods and arranged them into a top 5.
Ladies and Germs these are your top 5 upcoming Mods for 2012.
To qualify for the top 5, the game must place higher than it has in previous years and must have had a significant content/news update in 2012. Otherwise an honorable mention is given, which these teams have received:
Having come in third place for last years event Opposing Force 2 has just managed to place within the top 5 so they receive an honorable mention!
5Earth's Special Forces
is a fast paced, 3rd person fighter based on the hit anime, Dragonball Z. Select your favorite character and fly, power up, transform, melee, and beam your enemies into pulp. Each character is given signature moves and abilities to compliment different style of play. This is not your normal Half-life mod. 4Enderal
is a total conversion in development for Skyrim and the sequel to Nehrim: At Fate's Edge. The story of Enderal is not set in the Elder Scrolls world of Tamriel, but takes place in its own universe, creating a new, interesting world completely unrelated to Skyrim. 3Dawn of the Reapers
The reapers have returned from dark space. With Earth under attack and the mass relays in a state of chaos from refugees and the councils fleet engaging reaper forces the galaxy is a mess. The outcome is unknown, the warfare is devastating. The galaxy will never be the same. 2Sins of the Prophets
A Halo mod for the critically acclaimed Sins of a Solar Empire, that aims to capture the fast paced intensity of the Halo series. 1S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Lost Alpha
Dedicated modders are throwing themselves into recreating the early designs of the original Stalker Shadow of Chernobyl. Lost Alpha will be a mix of new content and some older assets from GSC's 2004 build of Shadow of Chernobyl.
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Lost Alpha. We love games like S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
