RSS Feed Player's Choice Winners Showcase

After rounding out the best of 2007, we're ready to present the results.

Page 1 of 4     Event Coverage Posted by stenchy on Jan 28th, 2008

As always, this year's contest started by rounding out the top 100 through community nominations. Public voting was then held to list to the top five games/mods in each of three categories - indie games, unreleased and released mods. After analyzing and gathering data based on the votes, we are finally ready to present the results. ModDB has approached this year's winners, in advance, in hopes of securing exclusive content for you, the viewer. We've come back with a few goodies that I hope you guys will like. It was a very close race to the number one spot this year. Regardless, every one of the winners showcased in this feature deserve the attention. Without the effort, enthusiasm and dedication behind these projects, 2007 would have been a tough year to try and play something different.

When you're done watching the video showcase below, be sure to check out the write-ups of all the winners in the following pages for full access to all the related media. Exclusive content will be marked as such so you guys will know what to check out first. You can also find the top mods and games on AMD's site. Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to all those who took part in the 2007 Mod of the Year Awards.

This is my summary of the awards:

The 2007 Mod of the Year Awards Players Choice winners have been announced, capping off a great year in gaming. This year titles which were influenced by the War in Iraq fared well, with Half-Life 2, Battlefield 2 and the GPL'd ID Tech 3 engine polling strongly in the indie games and released mods categories. Crysis mods though still in the early stages of development, did well in the best upcoming category, as developers attention shifts to some of the next-gen engines.

Yeah, grats to all winners, but not only =)
Grats to MODDB staff for their huge work and grats to all the people who voted for Warsow :p

But overall, I'd like to tell my biggest respect to all of you, modders/gamedevers/hobbyists all around the world.
Computer always been the DIY territory, generations of self-made people, who turned their passion into a relevant and learnfull personal experience, started by hacking (in the formal and positive sense) their beloved game.
That's why, to my eyes, open source and modding are straightly related to this philosophy. And we are the independent scene of gamedev, we are the ones who can innovate where industry is bind by financial stakes, and therefore, our role is major.
Respect !ยง! =)

SoLomonK, Warsow founder
