Okay, so here we are Friday 1st January 2016, so time for the Awards 2015!
Just a reminder before we get started: These awards will consist of three separate stages, each a week long. Full details can be found here: Awards 2015 Format.
Stage One: Nominations.
Stage Two: Elimination
Stage Three: Winners
There are 5 awards on offer: “Best Source Release”, “Best GoldSource Release”, “Best Ville Entry”, “Best Moment in a Release” and “Most Anticipated Release”.
What you need to do now, is look through the sections below and if you feel that I have missed a nomination, make a comment and if at least 3 people agree, it will be added to Stage Two, next week.
Now that I have written the post, I am wondering whether we should separate the *Villes into their own new category. It seems a little unfair on the mods create by one person to have them compete against mods created by multiple authors. What do you think?
One of the problems with Source is that haven’t been that many new releases and a lot of the top downloaded mods are the Ville mods. Also, remember that in the section are Half-Life 2 and Black mesa awards. In An Ideal world we could have an award for each game, but the reality is that so few mods are released it’s just not worth it.
- Bravado for Black Mesa
- Uncertainty Principle
- Transmissions: Element 120
- Killzone Source
- Forgotten Valley
- Avenue Odessa
There will not be any nomination stage for this award as all the Villes will be included. This means they can all be voted upon from next week.
I’m surprised that there have only been 9 new GoldSource releases in 2015. Have I missed any?
- Arctic Incident
- The Duct Map
- Military Duty
- AvsM 2: Project XEN
- Down Time
- Colony 42
- Then and Now, Now and Then
- Xen Boat
Let me be clear, this award is NOT about the best Ville mod, but the best entry WITHIN a Ville mod. I will eventually list all the entries, but you can see the Villes released in 2015 below. It’s nine and I think that’s great!
Have to admit, I am a little stumped for this category. I’ll ponder some more and post a few soon.
Clearly, these are all taken from ModDB. I am sure you will be able to add more. In addition, this award is for both Source and GoldSource engines.
