Favorite TOTAL Conversion for Doom?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Since there have been so many total conversions for Doom over the years, some good examples being:

Even Shadowman's Diablo-style action RPG wads like The Inquisitor 3 and the new 'Ascension' which looks to be another 70+ hour hyper detailed RPG extravaganza. That guys maps are top tier every time. I made this thread hoping to maybe find some cool total conversions I've missed, and let's mention partials that are super worthy, why not.

 

I don't think Doom 4 Vanilla and Hellforged count as total conversions but they sure are awesome. There was one thread about "what's your favorite TC", but it's from 2009 full of bickering about Hacx and Chex Quest. Danger zone.

My favorite TC right now is Castlevania Simon's Destiny.

list as many as you can, i'm a total newbie to the idsoftware community until this year. and this thread can be very helpful to others, i hope! or someone can use posts from here to create a compendium thread of all the total and partial conversions. that's what i'm hoping for.

Ashes 2063 is a must play if you ask me, REKKR looks cool but I haven't played it. I'm pretty fond of ZBloody Hell (Blood remake on GZDOOM), the GZDOOM Splatterhouse 3D and please, do play Golden Souls! Hacx is actually pretty good, don't judge it for being old.

Does RE-BLOOD count ? I think its one amazing TC and gets the job done to showcase the amazing ambience and gunplay of the original Blood.

You've listed one. Strain is a partical conversation.

I'm not sure whether it counts as a total or partial conversion, but I'd recommend Strange Aeons too. The Golden Souls games are honestly some of the best games I've played. Rise of the Wool Ball and Shadow of the Wool Ball should be mentioned too, although they are more based on Wolfenstein and ROTT gameplay.

Return of the Triad is a nice TC of ROTT for GZDooM. I don't think it was ever completed, just a few maps but for what it contained, it's a nice tribute to the classic rott days with some modern twists to it (like using slopes or polyobjects).

I saw another on the site that had Splatterhouse 3D called ROBOCOP Doom.

also, PIRATES! Doom.

 

both look super high quality.

Pirate Doom is amazing! Do play it!

Also, yeah, the site of Splatterhouse 3D's author has a bunch of other TCs, they're worth taking a look at.

Surprised nobody is mentioning one of the greatest Total Conversions out there which is a standalone game since some time ago, the mighty Total Chaos.

Like wow, really surprised nobody mentioned it, it's one of the most amazing TCs I've played.

 

Other of the greatest ones I've seen and played is SHRINE.

 

And to say a few more...

Golden Souls 1 and 2 (I think I finished one of them, but couldn't finish the other for some reasons... Then my PC was formatted so rip progress)

Ashes 2063 (Same as above, this was so amazing though)

Metroid Dreadnought

Simon's Destiny

found another cool one called ALIENS ERADICATION, last release was a few weeks ago, still in development. and an older one, Evil Dead 2- Dead By Doom. it only works on older gzdoom versions but it's worth downloading 1.9.1 to play it with. Aliens Ultimate Doom SE also looks good. the original 1994 Aliens TC is just outmoded at this point, i only listed it in the OP because it's fairly well known.

agreed, Harmony is worth mentioning, though I'm personally in the same boat as you I'm sure there are people who would be all about it. much like the Adventures of Square, another really well done TC where I'm not crazy about the style but very respectable and impressive works.

I tried Total Chaos a couple months ago, was super hyped after seeing screenshots and reading about it, but thought the gameplay was very slow. being a survival horror mod that makes sense but it just isn't for me. for fans of slowpaced survival horror games like Silent Hill perhaps they'd like it. it looks incredible and seems to take the power of gzdoom to its fullest heights.

Alien Breed into the Doom engine? that's a worthy conversion. That FateDoom is really accurate to the original demo. I tried that before playing the TC and the conversion is close as you could get.

Kinda surprised there's no Kirby Dreamland total conversion
