Mod of the Year

Back for a 17th time, welcome to the 2018 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.

There was plenty of blood & gore to go around last year, with the fan favourite Brutal Doom claiming top spot on the podium. Coming in second was the galactic spectacle Starwars II: Thrawn's Revenge II: Ascendancy followed by an alternative C&C timeline in the Twisted Insurrection modification. 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. There's been some huge releases this year, make your vote count and we look forward to seeing who will climb to the top, and be crowned the 2018 Mod of the Year.

Why did you put Blue Shift Source onto the list? All it is a very lackluster port of Blue Shift that doesn't even contain much to play in the first place.

Total Chaos is very cool, but as you can see we were already a little saturated with Doom mods and wanted to try and inject more variety to highlight the breadth of mods that ModDB has to offer. That said, be sure to cast your own personal votes for Total Chaos if you want to see it in the Top 100!

then i would have put newly created mods instead of old overpopular ones. for exemple QC:DE in stead of brutaldoom.

Where is Zombie Master: Reborn with their first latest major betas releases?

Oh, and I do think Zombie Panic! Source should be in too with recent first Linux support. ;-)

This list was written just before Zombie Panic Source posted their update, but you should definitely vote for that if you think it deserves to make it to the next round :)

My favorite this year has got to be Duke Nukem: Alien Armageddon. Takes good old Duke3D to a whole new level and is far above the commercial edition upgrades.
