ModDB’s 16th annual Mod of the Year Awards kicked off last month, revealing its top 100 shortlist on December 11. Voting for its overall winner closes later today, so now’s your chance to cast your vote.
Last year, Stalker’s Call of Chernobyl clinched first place, with SureAI’s expansive Skyrim total conversion Enderal coming in second. Hearts of Iron 4’s The Great War finished third, while my own favourite of the 2016 top ten, Brutal Doom 64, finished fifth.
This year, a host of neat mods feature—some of which were released this year, some of which have launched major updates this year, and some of which were simply announced this year. Within, you’ll find the likes of XCOM 2’s Long War 2, the recently renamed Fallout: New California, and C&C’s Dawn of the Tiberium Age.
