Ho ho ho Merry Christmas and merry Mod of the Year. 108,891 votes and 6,878,383 visitors over 20 days. We shovelled the punched ballot cards into the local ModDB super computer, ran our algorithms and watched the computer churn the raw data into our top 10 list. We lost the lives of many talented scientists and computer experts, but it was worth it because now we have something awesome to share with our community.

Your votes have decided this years Mod of the Year and the results speak for themselves.



To qualify for the top 10, the mod must place higher than it has in previous years and must have had a significant update in 2011. Otherwise an honorable mention is given, which these teams have received:

Placing very high once again Forgotten Hope 2 is still proving its relevance still in 2011. Having placed first in previous years you can't do any better than first place!
Project Reality: Battlefield 2 a staff favourite for years, and since its win a few years back PR has still be extremely popular within ModDB. No surprise that it receives another Honorable Mention.
while being a Star Wars IP Galactic Warfare is still just as popular as it was a last year, however like most honorable mentions it did not place high enough to be its previous best.
MechWarrior: Living Legends has once again proven that well designed mods do not go unnoticed. Placing very high once again this year, you cannot win twice!


10Underhell
you incarnate Jake Hawkfield, a Special Weapons and Tactics Operative, who recently got married and moved in with his beloved wife. But soon after those happy events his beloved wife dies in mysterious circumstances, only leaving clues that lead to believe in a suicide. Jake falls apart, and only his best friend, mentor and boss Frank is here to help him get over his grief.

9Republic at War
replacing the Empire with the Galactic Republic and the Rebel Alliance with the Confederacy. The mod will focus heavily on the Jedi Order with emphasis on the Jedi Council. There will be a full Single player Campaign as well as multiple sandbox modes that will allow the player to re-enact various campaigns of the Clone War such as the Outer Rim Sieges.

8The Last Days
After nearly 5 years, The Last Days Of The Third Age Of Middle Earth Mod 3.0, for Mount&Blade 1.011 (not for Warband) is, after many years, finally released! The previous version of this mod released in 2007 is still the most downloaded mod for the original Mount and Blade, surpassed only by two mods for Warband. Let's see how the newly released version will do!

7Blitzkrieg
There are many new features added to Blitzkrieg like a much more realistic Weapon damage system, new skins for infantry and tanks (and wrecks) also including many of custom tank skins, new units for all factions, modified and enlarged Commander Trees (now 16 Upgrades!), new abilities, new sounds and recommended new maps included!

6C&C: ShockWave
The main goal of this mod is to make Zero Hour a more interesting game with more diversity between the generals, making you think twice before you select a certain general, and overall provide more choices, diversity, and strategic freedom than in Zero Hour - while keeping the spirit and design direction of the original Generals game and storyline.

5The Stanley Parable
an experimental narrative-driven first person game. It is an exploration of choice, freedom, storytelling and reality, all examined through the lens of what it means to play a video game. You will make a choice that does not matter. You will follow a story that has no end. You will play a game you cannot win.

4CoH: Eastern Front
Following the ethos of mimicking a Relic Entertainment expansion pack, Eastern Front has succeeded in adding a full Soviet faction packed with unique and exciting units to the existing armies - a feat never before achieved in the Company of Heroes world.

3No More Room in Hell
the long awaited HL:2 zombie modification released back in October on Halloween. The mod is a cooperative survival horror game that focuses on moving from one objective to another. Players fight against a world full of AI controlled zombies, unlike most titles who deal with zombies there is a constant threat that your friends will turn into flesh eating monsters. Tread carefully.

2Third Age - Total War
a total conversion modification for 'Medieval II: Total War - Kingdoms Expansion' that brings you into the world of Middle-earth. The Production has been going since March 2008 and the mod is still well under development and boasts a variety of new features.

1Multi Theft Auto
a multiplayer mod for the Windows version of Rockstar North's Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas that adds an otherwise absent online multiplayer component. In 2009 MTA was officially distributed as the first open source release. This release abandoned the now obsolete "Deathmatch" tag in the product name to emphasize on the versatility of the software.

You can tell that they are all people that never use Moddb and just came here to vote coz I have never seen peoples own opinions being spam disliked like this by the Moddb community. TATW has been on the top viewed MODDB for nearly years! So these spam dislikes prove that its not MODDB loyal uses voices being herd! (Remember to click view comment on this) when its buried

I'm so happy MTA stole 1st place. I was actually shocked because I swore a LOTR or SW type mod would take it. I'm gonna play MTA to celebrate!

I don't know where you got the Multi Theft Auto footage from but boy: This is some really outdated videos you have there. Also they lag.

Why not just use one of the official ones which actually show WHY the mod won?

Anways, congrats MTA.

weird... MTA got only 352 watchers, Third Age - Total War got 1,867 watchers, and NMRiH got 3,354 watchers. Totally weird. But I congrarts all top 10.

Watchers are limited to ModDB/IndieDB and don't account for their own community sites and social networks. Some projects aren't very well known (yet) on this site that have a very strong backing on the outside and ever year those who do get such strong support end up bringing people to ModDB/IndieDB. I'm not arguing your point but thought that might explain it a bit.

More watchers doesnt mean a bigger popularity. MTA has a big community around, where this moddb page is imo hardly used. I'm a die-hard MTA player, but I'm not following the moddb page.

Just saying, it's kind of unfair, because it's ModDB award and watchers at ModDB should actually show the popularity of the mod.
But whatever, Tatsur0 is right and I understand that. No offense.

Hell no it's not unfair, if it went by your logic TATW would win first place every year; and It's so last year. rolleyes.gif

You can't win twice in a row apparently.
If you can't beat the previous year's score you get an honourable mention.
I assume it would count for the top spot as well.

Nice, congrats to all mods up there but specially The Last Days, Blitzkrieg and Forgotten Hope 2!

But it would be nice to see the countdown from all the top 100, not just the top 10, i mean it is still a great deed to be 16 or 30!

Congrats to all the winners! I would've probably preferred a different list, but all the top 10 lists show me are the best mods out there this year!

There are many I don't agree with, and still there are many Mods I'd like to have seen in top 50 (hell the top 100 are all great). I just think the mods with the bigger communities had a better chance honestly.

MTA also has been in development forever, I'll have to give it a try sometime if I get GTA: SA for the PC.
