Garry's Mod

It's tough to overestimate just how creative gamers can be when they're given the tools they need to succeed. While there are plenty of games out there that make themselves open to the mod scene, one of the most popular games on Steam is one that's made for nothing but mods.

It's tough to overestimate just how creative gamers can be when they're given the tools they need to succeed. While there are plenty of games out there that make themselves open to the mod scene, one of the most popular games on Steam is one that's made for nothing but mods.

Garry's Mod

Garry's Mod seems like it'd be just another flash-in-the-pan mod, but it's had a level of staying power that's honestly hard to believe. If you've never played it before, you owe it to yourself to sit down and take a look at exactly what makes it tick.

An open-world sandbox

Calling Garry's Mod a game never feels quite right. It's more of a sandbox than anything else, an empty world that allows you to spawn and manipulate objects to your heart's content. There are no built-in objectives here, no story and no real characters. The game is one hundred percent what you choose to make of it, and at a fundamental level, there's not much to recommend it over any other game on Steam.

What makes Garry's Mod work is what other people have done with it. Game modes like Prop Hunt or Trouble in Terrorist Town are both games that spun off of this mod, showing the potential it has when dedicated developers get ahold of the framework. This is not a game - this is the raw stuff out of which great games can potentially be made, assuming one has the patience to do so.

Graphics are getting dated

The fairest thing to say about the look of Garry's Mod is that it looked great when it was first made. Unfortunately, the game dates back to 2004, so one can imagine that it seems relatively dated at this point. The problem here is that it makes use of assets from various Valve games, none of which have aged all that well. The backgrounds and the props all look fine, but all of the human-like figures are definitely starting to show their age at this point.

The audio tends to fare a bit better in most aspects. It's not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but it will never take you out of the game. It's standard audio that works reasonably well, and that's all you can ask of this game.

Game Play

In all honesty, what you get out of Garry's Mod is always going to depend on how you choose to play the game. If you've decided that you're just going to play around with the base sandbox mode, you're probably not going to have much fun. While it's great to be able to spawn a variety of different characters and items into a blank slate of a world, that's something that gets old very fast. If you choose to play one of the countless games that have been made with Garry's Mod, though, you'll have a great time. Most use the bones of a first-person shooter, but you'll be amazed by how many different genres are represented in this simple game.

Conclusion - Replayability

Garry's Mod represents something extraordinary. There is a legion of consumers that have spent countless hours not only making new content for the game but developing fully-functional games that serve as springboards to careers in the gaming industry. Even if you don't want to spend your time modding, you do owe it to yourself to give this game a try. Once you discover all of the available content, you'll ask yourself why you even both buying other games.

Garry's Mod is a sandbox game with nearly infinite modding potential.
