Man, if Shift made it into the top 100, I may have to release something special. But I doubt that will happen.

Anyways, congrats to all the mods out there!

Unfortunately, I don't expect results so eagerly. Why? B/c AFAIK, mods for old games (and beautiful old/2D indie games) are underrated and overlooked.

Yup, but only Median, it seems... perhaps something else was also spotlighted, but it doesn't bode well or improve anything.

I can't wait to see the final top-100 score tomorrow. If we make it in, or even if we don't, theres still a lot of work to get done - to an extent, it doesn't matter personally to me too much if we do or don't end up in the top 100, but...

It'd still be nice, ya know? Never mind the PR boost it would give.

Good luck everyone, i'm sure theres going to be some great entries in the top 100 this year!

I think the downside with the polling system is that it chooses the 100 most played mods, not the 100 best. Often they go hand-in-hand, but not always.

FW:ToW_Sushi Jan 5 2010, 10:45pm replied:

Determining who has the "best mod" is very, very subjective. What I think is wonderful is not something you might.

Getting people to vote in this way is the only way they can do these awards objectively, whether some think its fair, or not.

If you're unhappy about your mod's placement, it should be your goal to get your mod on the front page with well written articles, updates, videos, images, etc. It's all about getting your mod out there into the eye of eager gamers. If it's a good mod, the popularity, and votes, will come.

If you believe in capitalism, the most played mods ARE the best mods because they offer value to the largest number of people.

Editor's choice is for choosing most "underplayed" mods/games.

Black Mesa(HL2), SHIFT(HL2) and The Zeitgeist(HL2) for Incoming MOTY, And the MOTY should go to Company Of Heroes : Eastern Front! Furthurmore, Can't wait for mods in 2010. Much more great games and mods will come. Resistance & Liberation for 2010!
