The Ultimate Doom. Best stock maps and episode length. Less is more.

The Ultimate Doom. I like the episode format and the monster roster is perfect. Don't get me wrong, I like DooM 2 monsters, but even having a limited roster, DooM 1 manages to get the best IWAD maps overall.

I prefer Ultimate Doom's maps in general but Doom 2's super shotgun and monsters just can't be ignored... And finally I'm not a huge fan of Final Doom, Evilution is kinda boring and Plutonia Experiment a bit too brutal.

 

Doom 64 wins just by being a very good all-rounder. Not to mention its atmosphere can be intense.

Plutonia > TNT > Doom 2 > Ultimate Doom for me

 

So I voted Final Doom. Haven't played Doom 64 though so I cannot speak to that one.

Ultimate Doom. I like its episode structure, because Doom 2 and Final's continuous 30-map structure is long and tedious, even with saving.

 

I have never played Doom 64, because I'm not sure which version of it is the best. I'm looking for accuracy, but with the classic PC keymouse controls.

Its truly a toss up between Final Doom or Doom 2. But I'm gonna go with Final doom because TNT and Plutonia is so fun and has many memorable maps.

I feel as if the first 10 maps or-so as well as the last few maps were very good. The middle third weren't very fun IMO

Doom 2 is probably my favourite game of all time, not just of the Doom games but in general. I’ve never been able to spend long away since I first got it way back when..! I already really liked Doom, but 2 just brought that love to a whole new level.
 

I didn’t play Final Doom until after playing Memento Mori so I thought they were cool megawads, but no better than several of the other classics. I still feel that way really, just because there was/is plenty of stuff just as good available for free.
 

For some reason as a kid I thought Doom64 seemed weird, but when I gave it a fair shake a few years later, I thought it was great and underrated in general.

Doom 2. Final Doom is just a fancy mapsets pack and not a full game in my eyes. I lose interest running the other 2 halfway through most of the time. I'd rather be playing Doom 2 or Heretic over them.

The steam version is the most accurate version of Doom 64 with keyboard and mouse controls.

2. The Ultimate Doom + Sigil

3. Doom II: Hell on Earth + The Master Levels for Doom II + No Rest for the Living

4. Doom (2016)

5. Doom Eternal

Doom 3 is bad. I like all the other games in the series. Doom, Doom II, and Doom 64 are several tiers above the rest.

I haven't finished Doom 3 (I have the bfg edition) but I don't remember it being bad. It was defiantly different from the other doom games.

It's a terrible excuse for a video game.

 

It's not a good horror game because the combat is ridiculously easy and the only "scares" are predictable jumpscares. Walk down a hallway, predictable jumpscare, bullet sponge enemies that are no threat, repeat.

 

It's not a good action game because the gunplay is absolutely terrible. The weapons feel sluggish and weak and combat is more of a chore than a challenge.

 

The story is terrible and the cut scenes can't be skipped.

 

The game was impressive for its time from a technical standpoint. Great sound design, great graphics. That's about it.

I suggest to go with Steam version if you have some money, it's basically Doom 64 EX with greater accuracy (though some enhancements were sacrificed to maintain this accuracy like freelook); good graphics and solid performance.

Otherwise, sticking to the free Doom 64 EX doesn't really hurt, assuming you can find a ROM.

I played Doom 64, and it's pretty fun. Final Doom is too brutal. Doom 2 is my favorite game, because of the Super shotgun. The Ultimate Doom is great as well, but with the limited monsters, it's not as fun as Doom 2. Doom 3 is just slow and the storyline takes forever. Doom 2016 is great, I really enjoyed it. Doom eternal is bloody fun, I have 100+ hours on it.

the ultimate doom for me she is still my favorite and the first episode and others I have already replayed it so much that I just recently replayed the vannila without mods for a long time I even liked more than mods but against the rest of the games in the series there is nothing bad, I do not say every doom is amazing  in its own way.

Final Doom has 64 maps, evolves Doom 2 gameplay in many neat ways and is compatible with both Final Doom and Doom 2 pwads. It also feels more fresh to me, Ultimate Doom and Doom 2 are very nostalgic but also bit too boring at this point, after 20 years of playing them. I started playing Final Doom much later, maybe 3-4 years ago so it does feel much more new to me.

My favorite would be TNT but I voted Doom 2 because Final Doom includes both TNT and Plutonia and I very much dislike Plutonia.

 

My favorite would be TNT > Doom 2 > Ultimate Doom >>> Plutonia

I have to say that Ultimate Doom is my favourite tbh.

 

I liked the first 10 or so levels of Doom 2 but after that I start to lose interest, it probably wasn't like that 25 years ago for me, but over the years I started to appreciate the more distilled-ness of the original game.

 

Final doom I just view as 1 and half decent megawads and not really any different to pwads.

Where's the option for PS1 Doom?! I'd have to say The Ultimate Doom wins this one. I don't like Inferno that much but Thy Flesh Consumed is so awesome that nowadays I have to put the first game on top of Plutonia.

I voted Ultimate Doom, but would have voted 'Registered Doom', if that was an option - as that was the one I grew up w/ and am most nostalgic for.  :)
