Taken and edited from the Garrys Mod wiki.

Garry's Mod

Garry's Mod or Gmod is a modification for the Source engine. It is a physics sandbox game that allows the player to manipulate objects and experiment with physics.

Garry's Mod requires the user to own one Source engine based game (games including Source SDK), such as Half-Life 2 or Team Fortress 2, and that the Source game has been used at least once. This ensures that the necessary program files are provided to Garry's Mod. The game can be bought in a pack over Steam bundled with other Source games like Counter Strike Source and Team Fortress 2. However most people prefer to buy Counter Strike Source as their chosen source game.

Overview

Garry's Mod was created in 2005 by Garry Newman. It started out as a mod that allowed users to rope things to go together, and it made the pistol shoot out manhacks(a kind of npc in the game). Since then, the game has gone through ten versions. With the tenth version of Garry's Mod, the version numbers were dropped, and it has now become simply Garry's Mod.

The current version of Garry's Mod receives regular updates via Valve's Steam service. Garry's Mod has been available for purchase on Steam since November 29, 2006.

Also, a free version called "GMOD 9" has been released, since it became obsolete with the newer versions coming out. It lacks many of the new features in the priced Gmod, but is still populated and has a large community.

Custom Content

Garry's Mod features an implementation of Lua, which allows users to create their own weapons and gamemodes. These gamemodes can completely change the genre of the game. Some examples are Roleplay, Stranded, SpaceBuild, Melonracer, and Zombie Survival. Game servers for Garry's Mod will automatically send their custom content to the client when joined. The game has an official website for these community creations.
