CrazyCraft 4

As you may have been able to infer from the name, this modpack is well and truly crazy. Perhaps best described in the words of the creator this modpack "focuses on taking your Minecraft knowledge and throwing it out the window". With a whooping 88 mods including Orespawn, TragicMC, Witchery and many many more, you'll always have something new to do or to discover. And yes, that is a giant Pac-Man that will try to kill you.

SevTech: Ages

Once of the best Minecraft modpacks you'll find for progress-based gameplay! You start out with nothing and very limited access to mods, ores, recipes, items, and more. As you progress through the hundreds of custom advancements in the modpack you'll advance to new 'Ages', giving you access to a wider range of mods and things to work through. All advancements are individual and not server wide, so it's perfect for playing with friends!

Farming Valley

In heavy contrast to most of this list, this is one of the best Minecraft modpacks for people that just want to chill. Based on the game Stardew Valley your goal is to start a small town and progress through the pack by farming, harvesting, selling your resources to local NPCs, then using that money to purchase more things. The modpack has the traditional four seasons, each with special crops to plant and sell. It even has the actual music from Stardew Valley!
