Mod DB has announced the winners of their 7th Annual Mod of the Year Awards, which celebrate the most creatively remastered video games and game modifications.
Nine different categories were under contention this year, with six awards chosen by Mod DB editors and three chosen by the gaming community through popular vote, including the top honour – Mod of the Year. This year’s big prize go to the creators of Project Reality, a mod for EA’s Battlefield 2 game that strives to deliver the most realistic combat environment possible. The team has tweaked the game’s physics, visual effects, and overall play style while adding new factions to the game. Project Reality took second place for Mod of the Year in 2006 and 2007, so this year they finally get their chance to shine.
