The 100 Best 'Minecraft' Mods, Ranked

As one of the most popular games of all time, it's no surprise there are so many Minecraft mods out there. Playing a game where you literally build the entire world around you can only be made better when you add a few fun (and funny) mods to the mix. From basic in-game mods like giving gamers the ability to craft more to ridiculous fun mods like being able to craft your own pizza, you can use a few mods to exponentially change how you play the game. Most of these mods don't actually change how you plan the game; rather, they add a new layer (or a brick, if you will) for which you can use to customize an entirely new experience.

Gamers have made some really amazing mods over the years. And if you thought vanilla Minecraft was amusing, wait until you download a few mods. Take a look at the 100 greatest Minecraft mods ever created and vote up all the coolest mods you've used.
