Welcome everyone to the 11th annual Mod of the Year awards, a celebration of the best mods released in 2012 as well as the up and coming whom we hope edge towards release in 2013. For the next 30 days, it's time to recognize the dedication and creativty of so many hobbyist game developers who have given everything to their craft (which, in many cases amounts to years of development). 2012 was a massive year with horror mods like Cry of Fear and the hotly anticipated Black Mesa pushing our servers to their absolute limits with over 300,000 people in one day, all trying to play.

We expect the 2012 Mod of the Year to be our biggest yet - so make yourself count by finding your favorite mods and voting for them! Who will join our first ever MOTY winner Natural Selection, who in 2002 took out the awards and 11 years later released a critially acclaimed best-selling sequel? Up until Jan 1st 2013 join us and help celebrate your community, culture and give thanks to the developers by voting for your favorite projects. Welcome to the 11th Annual Mod of the Year Awards (also check out our Indie of the Year awards and App of the Year awards).
