Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

GARRY'S MOD

What is Garry's Mod? Seems egotistical already. I don't like it

-Stuff it, commie. Garry's Mod (also known as GMod) is a sandbox game for Half Life 2, pretty much any of its expansions, and is also host to many mini-mods and add-ons. You can basically do anything, if you have the patience to design it, like:

Sounds awkward and complicated. How can I lerrrrrrrrrrn

-It is! But the simpler and still rewarding things are easy to tinker with.

Okay, so being a Half Life 2 mod, I can play for free, rite?

-Actually, no. You could in theory try and find GMod 9, which was free, but GMod 10 has significant improvements and just about everything new will be for GMod 10 only. It's only ten bucks, though!

FINE I'LL PAY THE TEN BUCKS - What's so amusing about this insanity, anyway? Why would I care for portals in Half Life 2 or the Episodes and ... actually that sounds fun

-It is! Look at the insanity:

So I have ur dum gaem, but can't find any of this awesome stuff like tuftoo turrets. You lied to me!

-You haven't looked! The definitive site for Gmod addons is garrysmod.org. Generally the highest downloaded things are the most awesome, but you may have to dig for older things. Be wary that a lot of mods will increase load times.

Fine, I concede. But what's the point? How do I win?

-There generally isn't "winning," though there are sub-mods like fortwars and other assorted addons. There's even roleplaying that's entertaining for you without any real social life!

And now to the screenshots!
