Why is Gary’s Mod Such A Big Deal?

Gary’s Mod is a big deal due to the sheer size of content available from watching videos to solving crimes everything is possible and not to mention all you need to do is join a gamemode’s server and all the content added will download for you, no hassle. The content is usually made up of textures models and script files, as well as map files. Depending on the server additional files may be downloaded such as extra guns more textures or different systems such as a music player. The whole game is really easy to mod and change the game resulting in endless fun.

Which Gamemodes Will be Reviewed?

Some games I will be reviewing are the gamemodes above plus a few others such as Pirate Ship Wars and Gary’s Mod Tower. These games all have different play styles and are played by many people. The games allow users to interact with others to solve and do things that cannot be done in other games for instance in Jail Break there is a team of Guards and a Warden who are in charge of Prisoners. Which ever side you are has to do different things, at the end of the day the main objective is for either the guards or prisoners to win. As a guard your duty is to make sure the prisoners follow the wardens orders and do not break the wardens orders. While as a prisoner you must escape find guns scattered around the map and try to kill all the guards to win the round. Most gamemodes including JailBreak rely on trust and behavior among guards and prisoners to play the game properly if  a guard breaks the gamemodes rules they can be kicked and reported.
