In Q2, above "Startrek Continuum" there's the "Arsenal Overhaul Beta 2.5" download, where as in Q3 the 3rd last row there is Arsenal Overhaul 3.0.

Also that 2.5 beta link is down

Ah man I was hoping to see my Blood 2 mod Extra Crispy in the pics above. I guess Blood 2 was just too epic for this list. LOL

Revision? More like How Not to Mod Deus Ex, 2015 edition.

Besides that, quite a cool line up of mods there. Can't wait to see the winners!Hopefully Alchemilla or The Forgotten City win big.

Beyond the Throne: Tides of Darkness (The WarCraft III mod) leads to Rendrocs Warzone instead of the WC3 mod.

So many mods to choose! But I had to go with Army Men III for bringing back my childhood, and doing so from the ground-up. =)

Not feeling the love Moddb, maybe it would have been different if my mod was for ROTWK instead of regular *** BFME...

Deus Ex: Revision naturally. Simply one of the most amazing mods I've ever seen.

@Dexind: I can understand different tastes, but you've got to be kidding. Out of all the awesome mods of this year, a mediocre redesign mod that forces a several dozen other graphical mods(probably because they didn't want to put in any effort into creating major graphical assets themselves) stands out for you?

The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod just blew me away when I played through it. It took a game I liked and took it 5 steps further.

It has to get my vote.
