WADs are everywhere online nowadays and you can easily download them and apply them.

However one thing that has always caught my attention are the mysterious, creepy and downright scary Doom WADS.

So whats the most creepiest Doom WAD you've ever played/seen?

The topic title and the question are different. I saw the title then voted Doom 3. But Doom 3 is not the best Doom game!

Doom2 is my favorite so I picked it, but as far as the thread title goes, I'd say Doom2 is pretty much the only Doom game that never creeped me out, even for a moment. Doom1 scared me at certain points, Doom3 scared me at certain points, Doom4 had parts where I was like "damn, that woulda scared me if I was young" but Doom2 just felt like a big, fun, dumb oaf with it's Taco Bell music on map02 and generally zaney nature. Fantastic game, not scary or creepy in the slightest.

Do you mean what is the most creepy Doom WAD (iwad or pwad) that you have encounted? The poll makes it seem as though you're only asking about iwads, which I assume to not be the case. You can edit the title if you want to, in order to make your question more clear. By the way, nice polar bear.

Maskim Xul and HacX, which is a total conversion

 

edit: if individual maps, also Hell Ground map 04 solely for the music, I had to mute the game and think of flowers and cute puppies to palliate my anxiety; Jenesis map 30, I mean, the fuck is that thing... and perhaps Comatose, the day I fully commit to it dunno when but having to deal with spectral enemies already gets me weird; Going Down even gets into that psychological horror-nightmare mindset nearing the end; anyways, the first two win the lottery.

Rootpain.

 

Rootpain will forever be an interesting abomination, the creepy part of Rootpain is not the content or gameplay (as ridiculous as it is) but is the fact that Rootpain as a wad exists and for what purpose.

 

You are in a womb fighting an unborn foetus with a bazillion fucking health (to the point where you have to bind the mdk command to the mouse wheel because Russian Overkill won't even kill it) all to, at the end, have flavour text about aborting the author.

 

There's too much effort for it to be a joke, too odd a subject matter to be serious, so what is it?

32 Inch Nails is creepy and has unnerving music. The slaughtermap is out of place though. I also think Doom: The Lost Episode is pretty spooky, Carroll St. Station being the best map in it, as for a little bit there's next to no monsters, until you reach a certain chamber, then the entire level comes alive to kill you wherever you turn.

Unloved and Hellground, both of which not only rely on visuals but their music choices.

Idk how I forgot about Unloved but that is my favorite GZDoom PWAD. Shame he never finished Unloved 2.

I'm specifically talking about iwads and pwads, I don't know why but I just really like them and find them cool for some reason.

Also thanks for the compliment. :)

I remember being scared by that map in Doom episode 1 where the lights go out - map 3? Sometimes a certain combination of events will get a jump out of me but that is surprising rather than scary. I just do not find classic Doom scary really at all. Doomguy is just too powerful to really put me in the mindset of being scared or intimidated.

 

Doom 3 on the other hand I find deeply unnerving in many places.

I really wish the second Unloved was finished :(
