Imagine a world where you have a blank canvas and can literally create anything. In Garry’s Mod, you can build your own game down to some of the tiniest details. Choose how the physics of the game works, who the NPCs are, what kind of weapons are available, and so much more.
Not precisely a game
If you love open sandbox style worlds such as Minecraft, but want even more control over your gaming experience, Garry’s Mod has everything you need for hours of gaming fun.
Before we move on to describing what you can do in this game, it’s important to understand that Garry’s Mod isn’t a game in the common sense. It’s a physics sandbox originally meant to be a mod for Half-Life 2. It has since developed into a stand alone game, but it doesn’t have quests or story modes or anything you would typically expect in a game. Instead, you are absolutely free to explore the world and do your own thing, with few limits. You can create a robot made from individual parts, create machines with pully systems, or give you the freedom to create that one scenario no game ever has.
Garry’s Mod can do all that. Using the power of Half-Life-2’s amazing physics engine, it gives you the control to make almost anything you want happen. This open world style is part of what transcended it from simply a mod to a physics engine, to an outright game in its own right.
Create your own movie shorts
This sandbox game isn’t just popular because you can create your own games. You can also use it to create short movies as well. In fact, many of the short clips you’ve enjoyed on YouTube were probably created with Garry’s Mod.
A cult classic
Almost as important as the game itself is the community behind it. Garry’s Mod has sold over 9 million copies so far, and many of the people who play it are diehard fans. Garry, the developer of the game and its namesake, listens to community feedback and lets the community as a whole take the game in the direction they want it to go. This is truly one of the biggest things that shape how unique and interesting this game is. Since its inception in 2006, it has grown from a hobby a one person studio created in his spare time, to a full gaming experience.
If you went into Garry’s Mod expecting to be entertained through a guided experience, you’ll be disappointed. If you love sandbox adventures or have always dreamed of creating your own game however, Garry’s Mod will delight and amaze you without limitations.
This game is fantastic for allowing you to explore your own ideas, create gaming scenarios, or even entertain others with movies and other adventures. If you love open style gaming, this is the perfect addition to your collection.
