My favorite WADs of the 1990s.

Recommended Posts

Hello there.

This is the list of my favorite WADs that were first released in the 1990s based on this site's Top 100 WADs of All Time.


  1. The list is split between WADs that require a limit-removing source port and those that don't need it.
  2. I personally count seven types of WADs: Six of these are based on the number of maps they have. The last type is based on Partial and Total Conversions.
  3. These choices were based on how much fun I had with these WADs.
  4. Some of these WADs are here because they were the only type of these kinds of WADs on the original list, thus, they are here by default.

Now, since that's out of the way, here are my choices:


  • 1 map - Dickie 10 (1998)
  • 2-7 maps - Phobos (1998)
  • Episode Replacement AKA 8-9 maps - Dawn of the Dead (1997)
  • 10-19 maps - Dystopia 3: Re-Birth of Anarchy (1996)
  • 20-29 maps - The Talosian Incident (1997 – Victory by default.)
  • 30-32 maps - Requiem (1997)
  • Conversion - STRAIN (1997)


  • 1 map - Jägermörder 1: Chemical Lab (1999)
  • 2-7 maps - Assault on Tei Tenga (1999 – Victory by default.)
  • 30-32 maps - Herian 2 (1999 - Victory by default. WARNING: Insane moon logic puzzles.)
  • Conversion - Twilight Warrior (1999 - Victory by default.)

And that's my list.

If you are interested, you can share your own personal 1990s favorites below.

Happy that I played most of the 1990s WADs from this site's list, and I can't wait to see what the 2000s WADs from both the Top 100 list and Cacowards have to offer.

Actually, Jägermörder 1 was made specifically for Boom-compatible ports, Assault on Tei Tenga and Herian 2 (don't be fooled by the earliest maps which are in Boom format with some extra ZDoom ambient sounds here and there) were specifically made for early versions of ZDoom, and Twilight Warrior was specifically made for Doom Legacy.

So they're not just limit-removing.
