** ''VideoGame/RockmanCX'' far outclasses the above, with a revamped gameplay style reminiscent of Mega Man X, even more new gimmicks, a completely new set of Robot Masters, a great soundtrack, and a new plot revolving around Mega Man's EvilCounterpart, Rockman CX. It really must be seen to be believed.

Some games are deliberately designed to be easy to modify, including a "construction set" of sorts to build levels, weapons, etc., and whole modding communities spring up as a result. However, some types of mods are discouraged, or even cracked down on, for good reason: a mod in the hands of a player but not his opponent usually means an unfair advantage. (Some GodModders will use these anyway and hope they aren't caught.)

** In ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'', there are fans out there who love to make texture hacks to change the appearance of weapons, hats, character models, etc. to further add hilarity to their game experience. [[http://tf2.gamebanana.com/skins Game Banana]] has a ton of skins for your perusal.

*** Sound Modding is also relatively popular, mostly due to the fact that, while some sounds are blocked on Valves own servers (generally speaking it's the gun-noises and footsteps), modders have free reign to edit pretty much any sound in the game, and it'll work in most cases, whereas custom Models and Textures won't for the above reason.

* The infamous Hot Coffee mod for ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas''. In the game, CJ can have sex with various women, but the depiction is limited to seeing them entering the woman's house. Hot Coffee re-enables a DummiedOut sequence where the player not only gets to watch but controls the action to a degree. It was later patched. The discovery led to a brief revival of the [[NewMediaAreEvil Games Are Evil]] panic. Incidentally, PC players tend to avoid said patch not because they want to enable it but rather because it interferes with ''actual'' mods.

* The While ''Franchise/GrandTheftAuto'' is very well known for its moddability for the PC version, most famously realistic cars replacing the fictional, low-detailed cars in III, Vice City, and San Andreas, it also gained infamy in 2005 with the infamous Hot Coffee mod for ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas''. In the game, CJ can have sex with various women, but the depiction is limited to seeing them entering the woman's house. Hot Coffee re-enables a DummiedOut sequence where the player not only gets to watch but controls the action to a degree. It was later patched.

The Steam version of GTA San Andreas are pre-patched.



** The ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' series of games has always appeared to be ripe for multiplayer, but it was never implemented by the designers. Enter ''Multi Theft Auto'', a mod that allowed for the player of the PC version to play multiplayer with large numbers of players and its own custom game modes. Multi Theft Auto was released for ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIII GTA III]]'', ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoViceCity Vice City]]'', and ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas San Andreas]]'', and is massively popular with the PC players for all of them. Rockstar got the hint with the PSP version of ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoLibertyCityStories Liberty City Stories]]'', which had online multiplayer for up to six players. They completely polished it for GTA IV, with 16-player (32 for the PC) support and 15 game modes. GTA IV's multiplayer has some similarities to MTA, including customizable character models, the whole city to explore and fight in, and some game modes.

Later for Grand Theft Auto V there are huge focus on online mode post-release, even more so than the single player story mode!

** Similarly, someone on [[ImageBoards /m/]] has started a [=FireRed=] hack that replaces Pokémon with various HumongousMecha, changing the names of types (for instance "FIRE" become "HotBlooded") and moves.

* A strangely popular pursuit is taking one RTS game and making a total conversion mod to essentially turn it into another RTS game 'as seen through the first game's engine'. For example, there are mods that turn ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer: Red Alert 2'' into ''Red Alert'', ''VideoGame/TotalAnnihilation'' into ''Red Alert'', ''Total Annihilation: Kingdoms'' into ''VideoGame/{{Cossacks}}: European Wars'', and so on and so forth. Attempts are being made to make ''StarCraft'' run on Linux by using the Strategus engine. Strategus doesn't support free-roaming units, idle animation, critters, or many of the mechanisms used in {{Easter Egg}}s at all, and the creep, Pylon power, and building liftoffs would require at ''least'' some minor modifications to the engine itself... [[PortingDisaster good luck with that]].

* One of the most common and popular mods for ''VideoGame/BattleGaregga'' is a visible DynamicDifficulty (known more commonly as "rank") counter, as keeping rank managed is one of the most important aspects to securing a no-continue clear.

** ''Pokémon'' also provides an in-universe example -- [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Porygon-Z]] is the result of applying the Dubious Disc, an unauthorised third-party mod, onto Porygon2. Given that Porygon-Z is [[GameplayAndStorySegregation said to be]] glitchy and unstable, perhaps it's a TakeThat aimed at game mods in general?

* ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'' has an extensive map modding community, which often range from crappy to excellent. All of which is played on a separate version of the game called "Halo: Custom Edition" (which requires the retail version to work).
