Funnily enough, ETS2MP didn't cheat. You can tell by the simple fact that we have over 6000 concurrent players at times recently like an hour ago, over 600,000 registered users since October last year and much more.
I honestly don't think it was cheated.

I think he means lots of non-active users who either voted without registration or registered only to vote then disappeared. Not the best way to win but I get it. That can happen with any Skyrim mod as well. Its not so much whether the mod 'cheated' but that it felt rather odd for it to get top spot just because it introduces muliplayer.

Cool initiative. Gotta love my favorite game, STALKER, being on there! Loads and loads of people who really need to try it out, both vanilla as with some sprinkles on top!

STALKER can beat a lot of games of its genre out of the water. But, like every game, they all have its flaws, but its my most favorite Post Apoc FPS

Vanilla STALKER is absolute garbage. I played for about 10 minutes, and had I not found out about mods, I would have never played again. Now it is my favorite game of all time. Thank you Misery and STALKER complete :)

It's often down as low as $5USD on Steam due to the seasonal sales and was that low last weekend but will probably drop again for Christmas if Steam is any way to justify it.

I wouldn't have a clue this year, not tried many mods. Anyone got any ideas what might win it?

Super excited, our biggest prize ever (though more relevant for the indie game teams: Moddb.com) and definitely the coolest award logo.

Sigh that euro truck mod is trending as number 1 again and around 75% of the comments in the last 24 hours are from guests...

Personally I just want people to play Resistance and Liberation, so underrated. I remember it being ridiculously fun with players, even though it's a bit buggy, it all works pretty well, still.

I didn't seem to find it here, do member votes count more than guest votes like it was in 2010.? Or has this rule changed in the meantime, wasn't here for a while. Thanks.
