MassivelyOP’s 2019 Golden Yachties: Best MMO mod

    
7

MassivelyOP’s not-so-serious end-of-the-year awards continue today with our pick for Best MMO mod in 2019. If you’re wondering what the heck a Golden Yachtie is, you can get caught up with the first award. And the winner is…

Guild Wars’ Ascalon City in RPG Maker

Yep, this happened! If you’re missing your classic Guild Wars experience but want it in the form of a single-player RPG, you can do that thanks to an intrepid player named Joseph. The demo is actually available now too!

Interestingly, my runner-up for this category is also Guild Wars-themed: I’m still loving the Guild Wars 2 player who built an entire guild hall in the style of the Super Adventure Box in tribute to developer Josh Foreman.

Want to nominate another winner? Let us know in the comments, and don’t forget to check out our serious MMO awards while you’re at it.

How about Skyrim Together, takes an RPG with the biggest Modding Catalog and enables people to play together making Skyrim more like an MMO?

Yup. It gets my vote. It has been steadily improving too.

Mods are a double-edged sword for me with MMOs. On the one hand, there are some truly amazing mods out there that add much developers do not; in appearance, utility, functionality or just presentation and preference to games.

But with the good also comes the bad in so much as the risk of relying and depending on them. Because all mods are inevitably Temporary, at some point they fall by the wayside, their creators move on or lose interest and they cease to function and any reliance you had for them then becomes a weight around your neck that harms your love of that game as you lose access and reliance to them and have to look for something else.

The only real plus for mods is for modders, those who can make them or fix them themselves if they get out of date for them the joy train keeps rolling, for the rest of us… not so much.

It is for this reason I both love and hate ESO for example :)

Now singleplayer games and mods that is an entirely different kettle of fish, once a game is done being developed you can mod it via peoples creations and labours of love and make the games INFINITELY better without that worry of the mods at some point ceasing to function as the base games code at that point is static. Games like Fallout 4, Skyrim etc… I have modded the cra*p out of and have literally hundreds of mods installed.

Not really a nomination but I sure do miss not being able to install a mini map mod when I play Elder Scrolls Online on a ps4.

Oh yeah. No add-ons on the PS4. Heh. Had not thought about that.

And that is a great mod. I never understood why the game does not default a minimap.
