Single Player Hall of Fame

Want to find the best single player mods, split into games and styles? Well, you have just found them!

The Single Player Hall of Fame from PlanetPhillip.Com lists the top single player mods for GoldSource and Source engine games. The results are roughly taken from the unique rating system called Recommendations.

With over 1200 maps and mods released, selecting the best ones was always going to be difficult but the mods chosen were universally accepted as being particularly good.
