JuanchoES, E.M., Horus, thank you for voting!

The tally in the OP has been updated.

 

@E.M., note that you have 5 points left.

 

For this thread to be pinned, somebody has to ask moderators, and it would be weird if I do it myself.

 

Oops. If that's the case, my last 5 points will go to nuts.wad.

Edit: updated graph here: https://www.doomworld.com/forum/post/2321070


I've added release years to the table and compiled a graph. The data may be a bit skewed in favor of more recent years, because I may have taken the last update date instead of the initial release date. It would be great if someone knowledgeable took a quick look at the data.

 

Results are interesting:
1. Three distinct periods of WAD popularity are visible: 1995-1997, 2002-2005, and 2008-2018.

2. Year 2004 is an outlier. Odd.

3. (Personal) For some WADs: "- That's a very recent WAD, feels like from yesterday. What's the release date? - Three years ago."

Edited by m8f : added link to more recent graph

@Omniarch, you have to vote for at least 10 WADs. And you have still 5 points left.

Ah, I thought I had ten but apparently I'm just blind. I'll edit my post posthaste. Sorry for the inconvenience.

2016 beat 2015? I mean, I'm an Ancient Aliens fanboy too, but I'm still surprised. If there's one year I think of when talking PWADs and custom Doom content in general, it's 2015. Just look at it:

I fixed some wrong dates (mostly, update dates were taken instead of original release dates). I used Doom Wiki as the source, but it covers not all of the listed WADs. So there still can be some errors. If you spot one, please let me know!

 

The wild roller coaster from 2000 to 2006 can be explained by Alien Vendetta (2001), Scythe (2003), and Scythe 2 (2005), and the absence of other impactful releases at this period.

2015 is now much closer to 2016.

 

The changes are:

Spoiler

Dante's Gate: 2005 -> 1994
Cleimos 2: 2015 -> 1995
Nostromo's Run: 2003 -> 1995
Odessa 1: 2014 -> 1995
The Enigma Episode: 2003 -> 1995

Eternal Doom: 1997 -> 1996
System Vices: 2003 -> 1996

Mars War: 2009 -> 1998
The Darkening Episode 1: 1999 -> 1998

Assault on Tei Tenga: 2000 -> 1999

The Classic Episode: 2002 -> 2000

Alien Vendetta: 2002 -> 2001
Revolution!: 2003 -> 2001

Simply Phobos: 2010 -> 2004

Zen Dynamics: 2006 -> 2005

Knee-Deep in ZDoom: 2013 -> 2007

Disturbia: 2009 -> 2008
No Chance: 2009 -> 2008
UAC Military Nightmare: 2014 -> 2008

Doom the Way id Did: 2012 -> 2011

Planisphere 2: 2017 -> 2012

Pirate Doom: 2014 -> 2013

Breach: 2017 -> 2015

Super MAYhem 17: 2018 -> 2017

Dark Universe: 2017 -> 2018
Dimension of the Boomed: 2017 -> 2018

Brutal Doom: Hell on Earth Starter Pack (Extermination Day) 2016 -> 2015
Strange Aeons 2017 -> 2015

E1 Contest: ? -> 2001

 

Some notes:

Eden: there are two WADs called Eden: 1994 by Mal Blackwell and 2016 by rd. Points are counted for 2016. If you voted for the first Eden, please let me know.

Tangerine Nightmare: the RC was launched in 2017, but textfile says 2018 as release date, so I left it as 2018.

 

And a question: does anybody know the release date of SSL2.WAD?
