The “PC Master Race”, as they say, can brag up and down the streets of Gameopolis with their talk of better graphics and cheaper games all day long, but for my money their trump card I will always envy will be mods. User-made modifications are perhaps the most exciting thing in gaming, the proving grounds for thousands of aspiring designers and mere talented laymen alike. They can span from texture packs to full on games seperate from their origins in every way possible.
Every year, the folks over at Mod DB hold a vote among the gaming community to decide the Top 100 best mods of the year, which has already been done. Now, it is down to voting for the best mod of 2013 period. Up for celebration are some of the most remarkable mods we’ve yet seen, including the famous “Wyrmstooth” mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, a fully voiced, brand new island for exploration and questing that was so impressive that it got its designer hired at Bungie Studios. For my money though, my favorite of the year is the Restored Content Mod for Knight of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, which restores the immense amount of content cut from the game in order to make its release date, including the original ending that makes thing a little less Gainax-y.
You can vote as many times as you like for the next 6 days at Mod DB. May the best mod win!
