Clear your schedule and make room on your hard drive: there are over 9000 mods up for consideration as ModDB's 2012 Mod of the Year award (opens in new tab) nominees, and only a little over five days to nominate them. A big green button on each mod's page makes it hard to miss the opportunity to give your favorites a bump.

There isn't much time, so we'll get straight to it after this obligatory acknowledgement that we said "over 9000" on the internet: tee hee, references . Moving on, DayZ (opens in new tab) and Black Mesa (opens in new tab) are tough to ignore, and The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod (opens in new tab) was a valiant community effort (opens in new tab) . Those might be the most talked about and praised mods this year, and we expect they'll secure nominations, but there are so many more that deserve recognition. Which are you voting for?

If you need a refresher, you might want to browse our recent mod coverage (opens in new tab) to see if you've missed any driving elephants or My Little Pony conversions.
