Excluding my own wads...

2-Massmouth
3-dwforums
4-DooM Ressurection
5-Dark 7
6-License to spell DooM
7-Tei Tenga
8-Realm of the Green Soul
9-Cyberdreams

That was hard and I feel bad for leaving some out. Oh well! Stats:

8 wads are ZDooM wads
2 wads are a megawad of 32 levels
2 wads have only one map
1 wad has 64+ cyberdemons

Well, I'm not going to post the wads which was reviewed most times with a 10/10 rating, with awards or anything else, I post wads which I personally liked very much ;) So far about this:

1 - Batman Doom
(Just absolutely amazing, you can't describe it with words)

2 - KZDoom Series
(Played all of them and also was everytime impressed by the new features and ideas provided with them)

3 - Final Fantasy Doom 2
(I liked the effort put in it and the game overall, sprites and maps, although they were pretty simple, got me feeling very "Final Fantasy 2")

4 - Adventures of Massmouth
(Funny ideas and nice effects, it just kept me playing twice and having fun although it's not a high quality wad)

5 - Darkest Hour
(Absolutely addicting, maybe I ask ReX for some "Copyright-Stuff" concerning a sequel :))

6 - Gothic Deathmatch 1+2
(Absolutely mind-blowing when I got my hands on it, still one of the best DM-Wads all over the community)

7 - TNT Series
(I hate self promotion but I like my own wads without beeing in any way arrogant)

8 - Cathedral Deathmatch
(It's the deathmatch wad from the Legacy's Team homepage. I played it about 1000 times together with my doom friend and I still like it)

...that's all ;)

heh, I have a theory that all doomers can be categorized into the gameplay group and the graphics group based only on whether they like gothicdm or not.

graphics and gameplay don't matter as much to me (in single player) as elements of atmosphere and general complexity of level design. in a deathmatch map, gameplay and interesting and well-balanced level design comes first. the less detail in a dm map, the better, imo.

i'm not going to name any top 10 wads because i doubt i've even played 10% of the archives, and could hardly make a fair assessment.

also thanks to the nice folks who said massmouth, you checks are in the mail ;)

and in no specific order

Batman Doom
Scythe
Equinox
Darkening 2
Hell Factory
Chord_g
Alien Vendetta
Mordeth Ep1 (tho saying ep1 is kinda redundant)
vrack2
Dark 7 Mission Pack (I liked it better than the original)

there are more, but those ones stick in my head the most (for instance Chosen, but I can't figure out what to bump for it...)

Anyone ever played Wheel of Time Doom or Earth.wad? Maybe not my top ten, but I did enjoy them. Also, Scythe really kicks ass.

/which results in "new" people missing great wads, which is maybe pity for the efforts people made by making those maps.
Apart from the forum and those two review sites doom underground and doom er's recess it's hard to find great maps of the past if you don't get any hint.
And yes those topics become tiresome and show up in any game forum. I think a what's the best wad made in the summer (winter for the southies) of the year 1998 or so would be more interesting to read.

This is what I was hinting at, in a roundabout sort of way.

I'm suddenly reminded of a DM level that was a large open circle with 4 BFGs and 4 Spider Masterminds.

Congratulations, you've just named 80% of the deathmatch wads in existence.

would anybody be interested if I put a poll on www.doombunker.net containing the wads mentioned here as choices? Consider this thread the NOMINEES,then u vote for the top ten on my site and i host them so ppl can find them easier. So when they ask "what's the best WADS ever, you can say... "go to www.doombunker.net!"

I don't know... Some of the mentioned wads here don't deserve it and don't forget the many überwads we are missing.

If you want to draw up anything resembling a proper shortlist of "best wads ever", you should, as NiGHTMARE indicated, do a forum search for the umpteen other similar threads (e.g. search for the words "favourite" and "megawad" for a start) and see which wads get mentioned most often. And then there ought to be categories, since it isn't really feasible to make fair comparisons between, say, a vanilla 32-map megawad and a Zdoom hub using a mass of scripting and other advanced features.

yeah, it's more compliccated than it sounds.. I could have a thing where they write in the name of the wad. Hype it up so lots of ppl go there and vote. Tally up the 10 wads that were mentioned the most?

I agree. But that leads to a debate over what the catagories should be. Off the top of my head, somthing like...

vanilla megawad
soureport megawad
vanilla TC
soureport TC
vanilla PC
soureport PC
vanilla mutlilevel wad (more than one level, but not a megawad)
soureport mutlilevel wad
vanilla single level wad
sourceport single level wad

..what a headache!

If you're going to bump an eight month old thread, you could have at the very least given us ten examples instead of just four.

Bleh.
