What an absolute ride. A bit easy on UV, but aside from that I'm in love. Doom needs more Metroidvania-style WADs!

+++Lunar Catastrophe

+++Bury My Heart Knee Deep

 

A double shot of love to the original DooM! Nothing for it got a mention last year.

Bury My Heart Knee Deep, although very awesome and very Doom 1-ish, is a Doom 2 map.

@HAK3180Yeah I meant anything for DooM I OR with clearly the DooM I aesthetic or feel. Nothing last year has either of that. In BMHKD the DooM II stuff only makes the map better IMO and yet whenever you're not using the SSG (which is a long time to find especially without secrets) or fighting the occasional DooM II monster, it felt like playing a DooM I map.

Eviternity. I just finished playing it. Wow, it blew me away.

EDIT: Also, add in Lunar Catastrophe in to the mix as well. Such a nice old-school Ultimate Doom megawad. Oh, and for gameplay mod of the year, how about Lambda? It's a weapons mod that puts the weapons and items from Half-Life and HL:Opposing Forces into Doom. The weapons are recreated pretty accurately.

It's not often you get a well-made megawad that treats Hell as the midpoint of the adventure and not the end.

I'd like to nominate someone for the Espi Award that probably should have won it by now: Andrew "Linguica" Stine.

 

Linguica was one of the founders of this very site. He also convinced John Romero to release the Doom source code, which allowed for the creation of source ports. He's done a lot for this community and I am honestly surprised that he hasn't won the Espi Award yet.

Sadly but latest works attract more attention. There are actually many ppl from the past who deserve this award.

The last winner of the Espi award was a guy who has not released anything since 2009.

As part of the staff, Linguica has taken himself out of consideration. The rest of us on the committee might decide to spite him eventually, but for now he's the one protected non-target.

Honestly, as Linguica convinced Romero himself to release the source code, I believe Linguica should win an Espi.

 

This single act is arguably the reason the Doom modding community is what it is today.  Think also of how many other FPSes would not in turn have had their source codes released if this had not happened.

Staff members have final say but I'd agree +++Linguica. Anyone who convinced Romero to release the source code is probably WHY DooM still has such a large and active community.

Not only that, he helped create this very site and he has done many wonderful things for the community.
