Should/Is Giant Bomb going to have to options to add mod lists, downloads and reviews to games?

Not sure if they're going to add those features, but it's probably a consideration for them right now.

Well you can already add reviews to games.

It's something we're struggling with. Basically, should mods be games? Or releases of games?


The hardest problem we had dealing with the site was how to deal with Street Fighter 2 and Madden.

Perhaps they shouldn't be games, but a new object type 'Modifications', which have a single relationship to a game/engine, or if you could tag a game as a Modification and it automatically gets a new field added which allows this relationship to be added?
But differentiating is hard. Is Garry's Mod a mod or a game?

Hopefully they will.

I like The Beasts idea it would be an easy way for people to find mods specifically for their games, this way people wouldn't have to know the name of a mod before hand.
And with Garry's Mod, a mods a mod until it is sold.

Would be pretty cool.

That sounds like a good place to draw the line - as soon as a 'mod' goes retail, it becomes a game.
