Merry Christmas, ModDB!
So, I've been around ModDB for some years now. This is really the site that justifies why I've opted into PC Gaming.
I started visiting this site because of HL/HL2 mods. The Half-Life series were my first games on Steam, and we're the reason why I created a Steam account. I really needed to play those games.
Eventually, once I finished them, I needed more, so I got acquainted with the modding community. I played a lot of mods, but things seem to have slowed down and now I visit PlanetPhillip if I want to get my share of Half-Life mods.
Then, one day, here in Portugal there was a gaming magazine called BGamer that came out with a PC game every month. One month, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl came with it. My friend usually bought the magazine and then lend me the games. I played S.T.A.L.K.E.R., I was hooked on it.
I bought the trilogy on Steam (by that time I already had a lot of Steam games and used it everyday) and then I also got acquainted with the amazing modding community STALKER had, and now I have over 700h across the 3 games.
Along the time, I've discovered a bunch a PC gaming "classics" like M&B Warband and Deus Ex, and of course I use ModDB to get a mods for these games (mainly Warband, which has a super active community)
I also look up some mods for a few other games like The Elder Scrolls and Fallout.
I'm also a big fan of Mass Effect and Metro, though it's a shame they aren't very moddable.
Simply put, I play a lot of mods now, and I thank ModDB for being the hub that provided me hours of fun in these last few years.
Thanks to every member of this community
