Mod of the Year

Back for a 16th time, welcome to the 2017 Mod of the Year Awards. You will find no loot boxes, microtransactions, unlockables or DLC here - just amazing free mods made by dedicated creators for your enjoyment. For the next 4 weeks it is up to you to vote for your favorite mods so that they may make the top 100 which will be announced on the 11th of December.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Chernobyl a massive crowd favorite won last year, and was closely followed by Enderal an epic total conversion finishing runner up and Hearts of Iron IV: The Great War coming in 3rd. If you need a refresh of how last year's awards went down head on over to the top 10 countdown's for both players and editors to see who stood out among the pack.

Show your support and start smashing those vote buttons for your favorite mods (and if your favorite mod isn't listed encourage the team to add it). Developers need to feel the overwhelming power and groundswell of support for mods, which drive so much creativity and goodwill in games of all shapes and sizes.

The 2017 Mod of the Year awards is now in phase 2: voting for the Top 100 mods

Posted by on

MOTY top 100 1

Nominations have closed for the 2017 Mod of the Year Awards, and after 10 days and over 50,000 votes have been tallied across over 4,000 mods in the running, the final Top 100 nominees have been revealed! Phase 2 has begun, in which voting is now open for the Top 100 mods to determine 2017’s ultimate winner. You have until December 21 to cast your votes!

It’s been an incredible year for mods with some of the highlights including Morrowind Rebirth, GMDX, Tiberium Secrets, and Dark Interval. Mod-friendly games such as Mount and Blade Warband, Doom, Skyrim, and STALKER are also well-represented. Despite newer triple-A titles restricting access to mods and user-created content, the modding scene is still alive and well as these nominees clearly show.

You can vote for more than one mod, so be sure to cast a vote for all the mods you think are worthy of a win!

Congratulations to all the modders whose projects made it into the 2017 Mod of the Year Top 100. Now is the time to rally your community to support to secure votes and spread the word about your mod far and wide. Be sure to continue updating your community about future releases, developments, screenshots, and videos of in-progress work. Congratulations also to those mods who didn’t make the Top 100, but came incredibly close. And finally, thanks to for supporting the 2017 Mod of the Year Awards!


Congratulations to all the colleague mods who made it this far!!!

Let the best among us win! ;)

Please... I have a life... I... Oh well, good bye social life.

Too many great mods.

My top 5:

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Chernobyl.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat - Misery + Armed Zone.
Fallout: New Vegas - New California.
Command & Conquer: Yuri's Revenge - Mental Omega.
Seriously, I can't choose, too many great mods for many great games.

And I have to say, I can't wait for Fallout 4: New Vegas, I do not really like Fallout 4, but with a mod that adds the World of New Vegas plus its items, I'll probably love it a lot more than before!
Also waiting for the Fallout 3 World for Fallout 4, there doesn't seems to be a page on Moddb for that mod yet though.

I would also have add The Frontier on the top 100, if that mod gets done one day, it will surely be epic.
Other than that, there are many other great mods worth watching even if they're not in the top 100.

Good luck to all, keep the modding great and free!

Congrats to those who made the top 100 and good luck to them for MOTY. I'm so happy that the admins and mods at ModDB continue to organize and look after this website. It's become a ritual of mine to check here a few times a day to check out what has been released or revealed. You continue to be a beautiful bright light for us (the modding community) and I hope you continue to do so.

Thank-you for improving Return To Castle Wolfenstein in the best possible ways!

For the first time ever I broke the Top 100.

Also this is the first time since 2006 that a BFME1 mod has broken the top 100.

Not bad for a 13 year old game.

That same feeling when you could be here, but EA against :D
