MechWarrior is the title of a series of computer and video games set in the fictional universe of BattleTech Within the MechWarrior games, players take control of a single BattleMech and combat other BattleMechs, tanks, infantry, and more, from within the cockpit of their machine. A third-person alternate view is available in MechWarrior versions 2, 3 and 4. Both MechWarrior 2 and MechWarrior 3 were Origins Award winners, taking Best Fantasy or Science Fiction Computer Game 1995 and Best Action Computer Game 1999 respectively. Mechwarrior: Living Legends was the recipient of the ModDB 2009 Mod of the Year and - due to rules preventing one mod from winning the same award twice - an Honorable Mention in 2010. It should be noted that MechWarrior: Living Legends is not an actual MechWarrior mod, but rather a Crysis complete conversion. The game play of MechWarrior is slightly different from titles such as Armored Core in that you do not have the option to change out pieces of a mech. Instead, you choose a classification of mech to equip, and are then given the option to change out weapons and armor as you would in a first person shooter. You then have the option to equip your weapon
