Overall Top Mods: 10 to 6   (Page 3 of 10) Feature

10. Natural Selection Half-Life

Natural Selection is a highly awarded and extremely well played FPS built upon the Half-Life engine. Playing with two teams, the Marines and the Aliens. You will soon learn your way around the unique mouse driven user-interface communicating with team mates and morphing into other forms if an Alien. NS also uses a 2D map for the 'commander' of the Marines, so the team can interactively build resource gathering points and other structures to fortify their base.

9. Ashes of Apocalypse Morrowind

The year is 2092, Earth lays in ruin. Two groups of people battle to survive in the wasteland, and both are determined to wipe each other out. From the creator of Sea of Destiny comes an uncensored and gritty post nuclear role-playing game. Take part in the brutal war of the barrier alliance against the people of the wasteland. Travel through what remains of the old world and survive against the harsh unforgiving world of Ashes of Apocalypse...welcome to the post nuclear playground.

Ashes of Apocalypse is a total conversion for Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind. AoA is set in a post nuclear world of freedom. It offers the player the choice of what to do, when, and where. There are no limits except the one to survive. If you want a constantly changing challenge, this ever expanding mod is for you.

8. International Online Soccer Half-Life

With a little elbow grease and determination, I reckon I could make a plane with tooth picks and string, MacGyver style. That doesn't mean I do - i'm lazy but that doesn't mean it is impossible.

This is exactly what the IOS team have done. They've tackled conventional wisdom (i.e. Half-Life games involve shooting other people) and mixed it up until they are shooting soccer balls at goals. And they've done a damn fine job of it too. IOS really is a decent package - and their multiplayer mode is awesome fun and bound to keep the hordes of soccer fans busy.

7. 21st Century Warfare Battlefield 2

If you are a fan of the epics (you know long movies like: Lord of the Rings, King Kong, Saving Private Ryan) and your ass does not go numb when you sit in one spot for half a day then you'll love this mod.

21st Century Warfare purpose is purely to serve MASSIVE tournaments. It promotes fair gameplay, putting the outcome of the battle in the player’s hands, not in the equipment. We play the game as it was meant to be played, with real command structure and 12 hour long battles every weekend.

6. Last Man Standing Coop Doom III

I can't speak for everyone, but who had the chance to play Doom II back in the 90's when multiplayer 3D gaming was just starting out? I did and nothing tops some of the epic 1v1, 600frag battles that took place on E1M1. The combination of Double Barrel Shotgun, Plasma, Rocket and of course BFG guns has to be one of the nastiest assemblies of weapons yet.

You can't top that but Last Man Standing certainly comes close. Besides LMS is a co-op mod. So for all the sissy's out there like me, it’s great to get a few mates together when playing Doom in the dark. Nothing beats letting your mate run into a room full of bigass angry bad guys and watching him/her get absolutely cained. Haha!

Go us!

Tetris for best story, that makes no sense. Dystopia should have been most hyped too. Other than that everything esle looks well placed.


By MenZa | Sat 28th Jan, 2006 @ 1:27:52pm

Definitely, Dys was the most hyped


By SuperRad | Sat 28th Jan, 2006 @ 1:28:47pm

Best story? tetris!?


By hammy-bob | Sat 28th Jan, 2006 @ 1:29:23pm

Beyond garrys mod, trench warfare, and battlegrounds 2 not really any mods I like listed here.

Garry's Mod sucks


By ASTROMAN | Sat 28th Jan, 2006 @ 1:36:58pm

You guys deserved it! Best of luck in '06.


By lillbrorsan | Sat 28th Jan, 2006 @ 1:39:23pm

Grats everyone!


By INtense! | Sat 28th Jan, 2006 @ 1:39:41pm

Tetris was chosen because we like to stir up a little controversy. Read why it won.
And Dystopia wasn't chosen for most hyped because we like to mix things up.

Big Grin!

ha ha Garry, you made my monocale fly out


By sickre | Sat 28th Jan, 2006 @ 1:49:14pm

Didn't Garry (from Garry's mod) steal from other mods and then threaten to sue them?


By dys-Teddy | Sat 28th Jan, 2006 @ 1:54:09pm

that's as mabey, but he's a loveable scoundral

Hall of Mirrors

By Rico21745 | Sat 28th Jan, 2006 @ 1:58:44pm

Woot, go us!


By Eglaerinion | Sat 28th Jan, 2006 @ 1:59:07pm

21st Century Warfare, has changed Battlefield 2 for the better but it doesn't belong amongst the full fledged mods in this list imo.

By Cloppy | Sat 28th Jan, 2006 @ 2:06:45pm

Good award show Happy


By Visual | Sat 28th Jan, 2006 @ 3:01:03pm

Congrats Everybody!

Is this a joke?

By Uranium-235 | Sat 28th Jan, 2006 @ 3:54:52pm

No really.

"Didn't Garry (from Garry's mod) steal from other mods and then threaten to sue them?"

Maybe not, but the latest versions of Garry's mod are just scripted 'games' written by OTHER PEOPLE thrown in and called 'Content'. I mean, that'd be like Dystopia decompiling CounterStrike and putting it in as a 'minigame' and calling it original content.

Big congratulations out to the top mods and the top upcoming. It feel in line somewhere in the region I expected, but Dystopia beat my fourth I estimated for them, so great job Teddy and the team. Garry's Mod, hands down, was going to win. Its massive success has stretched straight across the board in terms of playability and replayability: both of which are critical factors in many popular mods. A congrats goes out to Garry Newman: another medal to add to his collection (or which some will call his ego).

The Top Genre, again I agree with most of them. The Tetris was weird, but come on now folks: for a community which registered Red Orchestra as a Sports Mod, we needed some more irrational, uncomprehendable and outrageous actions to keep it normal for ModDB. Once again, congrats. A big big congrats goes out to Insurgency and Fortress Forever, the two other Half-Life 2 mods that made it into the Best Upcoming lineup. I was personally betting that Insurgency would have taken Best Mod, beating us out, but when they scored third I was shocked.

Anyways, a great run around this time and I'm pumped we got into the Best Upcoming.
