Mass Effect Mod of the Year 2023 - Winners

  • Comment
Happy New Year from the Mass Effect Modding Community! It's time to announce the winners of our annual Mod of the Year Awards!

This year we've ended up with not one, but two categories with tied votes for first place! So we're taking a page out of the Academy's book and in the spirit of celebrating the amazing work of 2023, presenting the award to both winners.

Congratulations to all the nominees and winners. We'll see you all again in December, after what I'm sure will be another exciting year for Mass Effect mods!

    The Happy Ending Mod saved the original trilogy for me. Which one of these is that for LE?

    Just had a semi-related thought: are there a bunch of mods available on the ME Modding Discord that are not posted to Nexus?  Just want to make sure I'm not missing out on anything... I've only browsed Nexus for Mass Effect mods.

      Sometimes some of the devs post teasers of stuff they're working on but other than that no one uploads their mods to the discord. There's a bot that posts in the discord when there's a new upload on Nexus though.

    So I can't abstain from voting in categories where I didn't play any of the mods, and thus have no opinion? I have to pick something in every category?

    So either I pick some random mod in most categories (since I haven't tried the vast majority of them), I install all of the mods and try to power through all 3 games ASAP to give a semi-honest opinion, or I just don't vote at all?

      Yeah there's been some feedback from others as well about that, so I've removed the Required tag from the categories. Feel free to vote in as few or as many as you like now!

    Please note that my Fixes Addendum is not actually eligible for receiving MotY votes, since its an older mod that just finally got its own page after an update this year.

    A big thank you for everyone who nominated this, and those who voted on it already. :)
    For anyone who have not yet voted, please vote for one of the other options instead, in case this is still found on the forms.

    The "I never knew I needed this" section is missing Unique Moons. And Fixes Addendum is missing from the Andromeda section of the poll.

    Overall, nice selection. In many sections it's pretty tough to choose just one!

    None of Orikon’s mods listed? Y’all have a vendetta or what?

      who's "y'all"? nominations were via general community submission.

      orikon mostly releases stuff for OT which no one really mods anymore. it's not a conspiracy, it's just visibility.
