HALL OF FAME

THE BEST OF THE BEST

Welcome to the Hall of Fame from RUN.  THINK.  SHOOT.  LIVE.

These releases are the best single player mods for GoldSource and Source engine games.

They are taken from the unique rating system called Recommendations.

With around 1,300 maps and mods released, selecting the best ones was always going to be difficult but the mods chosen were universally accepted as being particularly good.

If you prefer to see more information about each release, you can use the Play Archive and search for HOF or even HOF:Ep1, changing the EP1 for the game of you choice.
