  2. Copy its URL then write a post explaining why you like that mod (you could write this post on your blog, in a forum, a tweet or facebook) the more we share the better.
  3. Tell us about your post by linking to it in the comments here.
  4. At the end of the week we shall be picking a few lucky members who left a comment following these rules at random, and giving them a key to one of the games listed below as thanks for helping us celebrate mods!

A single skin mod counts, too, right? Or does it have to be a mod that affects the entire game?

Star Wars: Interregnum and Star Trek: Armada III are some of the best mods to have ever existed on the face of the Earth.

The industry keeps pressing on games which lack lore and trivia these years and releases become more depressing as time goes on. I'm not saying every single one is bad nor will I talk about the usual AAA blockbusters games but at least to me it's hard. Hard to find games which equals S.T.A.l.K.E.R. (not saying there isn't, everyone's got a different opinion). Most games these days are either thought out to last or expected to be replaced (generalising).
(remember these are [some of my thoughts] on the video game industry)

let's cut the chase and put it simply

There aren't a lot of games which draw me back to them when I'm done playing through them. S.T.A.l.K.E.R. there is too much to say about it. It always keeps on drawing people back, to me it's up there with the classics.

"To me this old game is young"
I bet GSC never thought it would come this far and still keep going.
let me explain why I say "To me this old game is young"
Everyone knows S.T.A.l.K.E.R. isn't really the best game out of the box.
I could go on listing all the problems the game has in its vanilla form
but the reason we know these so well is simply because,
people already got solutions for them.

This game isn't supported by anyone anymore officially
To blind eyes it may seem dead. Yet it is more lively than ever.
I never thought to see such mods which overhauled the game from it's core,
new questlines nor ones which gives it 64 bits.
But NEVER would I have thought someone would try to give S.T.A.l.K.E.R.
a real multiplayer and set in the zone. (a new part of it at that)
It was unreasonable for me, an unprecedented event to my knowledge.
A complete rework of a clunky game which most forgot about? unthinkable,
that is without counting the modding scene.

"Ray-of-hope" that is its name

Moddb.com
Title says it all, The very dream of most S.T.A.l.K.E.R. player and enthusiasts.
I won't talk mush about it and simply say:
S.T.A.l.K.E.R. 2
(it's a joke which through RoH message
boards recently but i legit think it is)

When I first played through COP
I was scared shitless (was young and impressionable)
the atmosphere the feeling when I was playing for the first time,
I didn't know it yet but it marked me, back then I thought I would never play this ever again. Yet here I am preaching that this game is a masterpiece not by today critics standards but because no matter how you try to say it is lacking there is always someone to show you that what they've done proves you wrong.

"No matter how much time I spend on it I'm always thrilled,
I always stumble upon something new, something which i never
noticed and end up learning more and more about it
and remember the zone is becoming bigger everyday."

I made a post about Vanilla Matters on facebook, because that's the medium I use most, out of the big 3.

I felt like casting the vote not only because I played the mod and thought it was interesting, but because when I had reviewed that some aspects didn't match the intention completely, the author quite politely asked for my input and we had a great discussion about how to possibly improve the direction on the things that felt off.

It runs well, has a lot going on for such a young mod, and I think it has a bright future ahead of it!

It's always nice to praise a mod and even better when you might get a game for it :D
(Also I'd be most interested in Total War: Warhammer if that plays a role^^)

This is possibly the best mod to ever exist for any game!
It’s added so much to the community and the game itself, these developers deserved to be acknowledged by the modding community.
Thank you for doing this ModDB, some mods go under the radar and disappear; I’m glad this community still exists.
