Mod of the Year

Back for a 18th time, welcome to the 2019 Mod of the Year Awards. It's the time of year to look back on all the incredible mods that have been released by hardworking creators and celebrate their incredible efforts which bring us so much joy. 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.

Last year the impressive long in development Fallout: California claimed top spot followed by fan favorite M&B: Warband mod Warsword Conquest, and the captivating Half-Life: Echoes. 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!).

The 2019 Mod of the Year awards have officially begun! This event is a celebration of the tireless dedication of the mod community, and aims to highlight the incredible work that has been produced by them throughout the year.

Modders Are Keeping The Dream Alive

As we edge towards the end of the decade and into a new era of gaming with new consoles set to launch next year, the importance mods play in shaping the gaming landscape is more significant today than it has ever been. We've known this for a long time, after all the most popular games on ModDB have legacies that date back over 10 years, in some cases 20 years - and those legacies are stronger than ever because of incredible mods that keep coming out. It's great to see more studio's than ever before opening up their development tools and allowing the community to create new content for fellow players to enjoy. We'd like to see more total conversions and more open mod platforms (like that we've created *shameless plug*), to help games thrive that choose to implement mod support.

But right now the most important thing is that it's December, and it's time for all visitors to ModDB to make it known how much we appreciate modders and their efforts, by voting for our favorites to determine the best released, and best upcoming, mods of 2019!

Phase 1: Nominations Begin

From now, over the next 10 days, voting will be open for every mod on the site. Simply visit that mod's mod profile to find the voting booth, and click “vote now” to vote for that particular mod if you think it's worthy of making into the final Top 100.

Phase 2: The Top 100

The day after voting closes, on December 11, the Top 100 mods will be unveiled, calculated from those user votes over the first 10 days of voting. A new round of voting will then begin, with users voting over the another 10 days to determine which of those Top 100 mods is worthy of being crowned Mod of the Year for 2019.

Phase 3: Mod of the Year 2019 Awarded

With those final votes calculated, as we move closer to Christmas, the winners will gradually be revealed over the following stages:

  • Editors Choice Awards (22nd December)
  • Players Choice: Unreleased Mod (27th December)
  • Players Choice: Mod of the Year 2019 (29th December)

Promote Your Mod To Help Get Votes!

Modders, you should make as much noise about your game as possible to get it in front of potential voters! Luckily, we've created some tools to help you do just this.

Win Games for Voting

Every member from the community who votes has a chance to win a game from our #modlove collection. The more you participate, promote the awards and encourage your friends to vote the better your chance. In addition to this the winning mod teams will be heavily promoted across our network, get the prestigious honor of being able to include the award badge where-ever they damn well please, and be introduced to publishers interested in taking their idea to the next level.
