Operation: Black Mesa is a total Source remake of Half Life: Opposing Force. Using the Source engine, the developers plan to recreate the Black Mesa research Facility as it was seen by Corporal Adrian Shephard of the H.E.C.U. Half-life: Opposing Force is still an amazing game, although it's not nearly as amazing as it was when it was released.

Report RSS MOTY Players Choice - Upcoming

Welcome to the Players Choice - Upcoming top 5 award for Mod of the Year 2011.

Posted by on

From the 1st of December to the 20th we asked quite a bit of our community, we asked that you decide what mods you think are the best mods for 2011. We tallied up the votes for best upcoming mod and arranged them into a top 5.

Ladies and Germs these are your top 5 upcoming mods for 2011.



To qualify for the top 5, the mod must place higher than it has in previous years and must have had a significant update in 2011. Otherwise an honorable mention is given, which these teams have received:

Once again Black Mesa is an unstoppable vote recieving machine. However until BM releases forever an Honorable Mention. Still players are eagerly awaiting the release of this mod. Chop chop!
Our voters seem to like Half-Life cannon however Operation Black Mesa just missed out by a small margin to better its previous placing. Since it did not place high enough OBM gets an Honorable Mention.


5City 17: Episode One
With the impending collapse of the Citadel, two members of the Resistance are tasked with evacuating any citizens remaining. Little do they know that their mission sees them gaining critical information that puts the early fate of White Forest in their hands.

4S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Lost Alpha
Have you ever dreamt about playing the old, forgotten S.T.A.L.K.E.R. ? We spent countless of nights on collecting materials, videos, images from the old builds, and we are working on remodelling the old atmospheric levels, and presenting some never seen features. All materials are property of GSC Gameworld and dez0wave group.

3Opposing Force 2
taking place in the Seven Hours War aftermath. Fighting against blood shedding synths and frightening aliens, Adrian Shephard has to struggle his way with his fellow comrades from the Phoenix Command, with the main objective of stopping the construction of a Combine Citadel. In his journey he will find what has happened to the world, six months after the Seven Hour War.

2CoH: Modern Combat
will create a deep, entertaining vision of modern warfare, pitting the modern-day Chinese and American militaries against each other. These two unique factions, with their all-new companies, abilities, and artwork, will work together with the outstanding starting platform that is Company of Heroes in an effort to provide the most immersing, combat on your PC.

1Cry of Fear
You wake up in a dark alley, not knowing anything. What has happened anyway? You struggle after the truth and answers. Answers you want to know in the darkness and fear, which makes your heartbeat race like violent blows against your head. Where do "they" come from? What has happened? It's time to head out and find the answers.

I didn't know so many people were looking forward to cry of fear.

I'm glad Black Mesa has been left at honourable mention. It is to mod awards what Duke Nukem Forever was to vaporware lists.

Why do people keep voting for Black Mesa? It hasn't been updated in 2 years and yet it still gets the most votes of all. Thank god for the Honorable Mention system.

Constant updates from the devs, as well as new screenshots all the time, is now "dead"?

Last image/video date from Nov 2008, Last news dates from Dec 2009, whatever updates you are talking about, they aren't ModDB updates, which makes it strange that ModDB users are voting it enough to be a honorable mention again.

If they're posting to the site, they could at least post these screenshots on ModDB, converting news posts to ModDB all the time, yeah I can understand if they're not up for that, but how hard is it to mass upload shots once in a while, they're raking in votes for a ModDB award while not having an active ModDB page.

I stand in line with the people here wondering why it's being voted on so massively still after so many years.

BM isnt the only project not constantly posting news and still being popular in the community. I am glad the Modding community doesnt forget their games so fast as it is usual in the commercial business.

Congratulations all, some cracking looking mods there, well done.

Quite surprised Freeworlds Tides of War isn't up there, as they are doing absolutely phenomenal work with the Freelancer engine. I'm sure they'll get the recognition they deserve once they release.

Talking of which, bring on the released awards, can't wait. Shaping up to be another great awards season.
