Also it sucks that most unaware SonicTubers USE GB. I wish we could REALLY get the message out you should only use the MB for SRB2 mods.

Back when gamebanana wasnt a central hub for poorly made mods and 'portlegs'

We had to scavenge for wads on 4shared and Mediafire.

Whilst mediafire was ok, 4shared was incredibly infamous. It had lots of maleware but we had to do what we needed to do to get that sweet sweet house25.wad.

Some idiot named SuperBlur97 promoted his srb2 mod in this https://gamebanana.com/questions/4173

That’s stupid.
And they promoted it on Sonic Mania.
Not even SRB2.

Also by the way, thank you SRB2 devs for the strict rules

Honestly, i only go on GameBanana for the Sonic 3 AIR mods & SPEEPSHighway's mods for the Sonic Adventure games.
Guess its a good thing i don't go anywhere the SRB2 section.

Some good mods are hosted in Gamebanana, like the Playable Zelda overhaul for BOTW and a lot of Smash mods, but the site is such a pain to navigate and it's incredibly cluttered.

Having glimpsed that site, I do agree that from a presentation standpoint, this message board is a much better place to download mods.

Those here who are not of generation Z would note Gamebanana's website layout being that of the cluttered early 2000's design (if it was never updated to take advantage of HD monitors and HTML5). I am mainly talking about the technical stuff here, as others already covered issues like stolen content.

I put a Mighty Port there called Vexer1's Mighty and it got 2.0k views on it. It had Original Shoes from a Mania Mod and used a base edit Lily Dragon's. It was a terrible Sprite swap and a horrible port. Didn't even bother with the banner.

Finally! A thread where I can talk trash about Gamebanana! :V

Gamebanana is utter trash when it comes to mod distribution, quality control, and general moderation within the community.

It's UI is clunky and cluttered. The site itself takes up a lot of memory with the tons of intrusive ads not helping on the matter.

It's points system is a joke. Rewarding free games to those who can spam as many mods as possible onto their respective pages without getting banned for doing so. A feature that promotes quantity over quality.

As for its community, I am genuinely shocked at how much bad content exists on the site compared to other mod sites. ModDB is the same concept as Gamebanana, but much better executed in nearly every fashion.

Minor mods aren't a problem, but it sometimes it's so minor that the change is miniscule to the point of being irrelevant. This also ties into the points system (as explained earlier).


If you want good mods, Gamebanana ISN'T the place to go.

Want good DOOM mods?
Go to the Doomworld forums, ZDOOM forums, or the /idgames archive.

Want good Half-life mods?
Runthinkshootlive has you covered.

Want good Sonic mods/rom hacks?
SFGHQ, and SSRG is a good way to go

Mario Stuff?
MFGG, or SMWCentral

Not to mention most of the above is on ModDB.



Had it not been for the Releases system awhile back, we would've ended up the same way as GB. Don't do GB, kids.



I've heard about Gamebanana but never went to the srb2 section and the first thing that caugh up my attention was a dumb mod called Sex in SRB2.... I... I just.....what? Oh wait, i checked it and now the mod is trashed but seriously , who would want sex in a sonic fan game ?!

Yeah, gamebanana really sucks. It's a slow, ad-infested mess of a site with mostly terrible content. If youre gonna download srb2 mods, just do it here

Thanks for the sites, I usually go on ModDB too.
