The best PC mods to download in 2021

Whether it’s a fresh coat of paint to an old video game or the addition of a totally brand-new video game mode, mods are often simply as huge as the initial video games they build on. It appears fitting then, that as the year wanes, that fans review the very best mods developed this year.

On Monday, ModDB, which turns 20 in 2022, launched its yearly roundup of the very best mods launched in 2021. The awards are voted on by the site’s readers; The leading 10 consists of mods for video games like Doom 2 (1994) and Half-Life (1998), with a mod for Piranha Bytes’ 2003 action RPG Gothic 2: Night of the Raven taking the leading reward.

The leading 5 are:

The winning mod entirely remakes Gothic 2: Night of the Raven. According to ModDB’s description, the addition brings a brand-new open world, a brand-new ability system, and a “complex story.” It was made by The Chronicles of Myrtana Group and introduced Dec. 10.
