Mine are for close quarter situations :

lost soul: ssg, shotgun, chaingun
demon: berserk, saw
caco: ssg, saw, chaingun

reverant: berserk, ssg, chaingun
knight: ssg, chaingun
mancubus: ssg, chaingun
babyspider: ssg, chaingun
baron: ssg, plasma
archvile: berserk, ssg, chaingun
spider: run-away, bfg, ssg if I can hide
cyber: run-away, bfg, ssg if I can hide

far away:

revenant, pain: chaingun, plasma
knight, baron, mancubus, babyspider: rocket, plasma, shotgun, chaingun
archvile: chaingun, shotgun, plasma, rocket

a faraway bunch of enemies: rocket, bfg

but most of all, I like to make them kill each other

I'm a bit of a maniac when it comes to what weapons I use. Here's my whole list:

Trooper, Shotguy, Chainguy, Imp, Demon, Caco, Lost Soul - Shotgun, SSG
Pain-E - Chaingun, SSG, Rockets, Plazma, BFG!
Ravnant, Arch-Vile, Knight, Baron - Rockets, BFG, SSG, Shotgun
Spider and Cyber - BFG, Plazma, Rockets, RUN LIKE HELL!!!!

That should do it. I hate the Chaingun, but it does help against those damn Pain Elementals. Stops them from spawning anything...

Trooper, Sargeant, Imp: Pistol, Shotgun, Chaingun, Berserk, Rocket Launcher (for clusters), BFG9000 (A big fuckin' gun for big fuckin' groups)
Commando: Shotgun, Chaingun, Super Shotgun, Rocket Launcher
Demon, Spectre, Lost Soul: Shotgun, Super Shotgun, Chaingun, Berserk, Chainsaw
Cacodemon: Super Shotgun, Chaingun, Rocket Launcher, Chainsaw
Pain Elemental: Chainsaw (their secret weakness!), Super Shotgun, Plasma Rifle, BFG9000
Revenant: Shotgun, Super Shotgun, Chaingun, Rocket Launcher
Hell Knight, Baron of Hell: Super Shotgun, Rocket Launcher, BFG9000 (for groups or if hurt badly)
Mancubus, Arachnotron: Super Shotgun, Chaingun, Rocket Launcher, Plasma Rifle
Arch-vile: Super Shotgun, Rocket Launcher, Plasma Rifle, BFG9000 (Take 'em down fast)
Spiderdemon: Plasma Rifle, BFG9000
Cyberdemon: Super Shotgun, Rocket Launcher, BFG9000
-----------------
Preferred Deathmatch usage:
Shotgun: Used at moderately long distances, also somewhat useful at closer distances.
Super Shotgun: For up close and personal combat.
Chaingun: The best weapon at very long distances, otherwise general purpose if no better weapon is nearby.
Rocket Launcher: For moderate distance, best if the opponent is near a wall. Good choice for butting in, since a good shot may take out both combatants with one rocket.
Plasma Rifle: Waggle back and forth to spread plasma, a nice choice when butting into a fight that's already going on.
BFG9000: For when everyone has to die right now.

Whatever to whoever. Although I like the plasma gun on just about everything.

Yeah, I try to use the weakest weapon possible and conserve ammo. Even if I have the chaingun, I'll still use the pistol.

Using the powerful weapons gets boring. It's more fun to stalk around corners in fear of death.
Of course, there's still something to be said abuot charging into a room, guns blazing.

I like punching and hacking things. I think I amuse/piss off some people on Doom Connector for that.

If only the melee weapons were improved, to make it realisticly possible to punch mankies and spiders. There would be so much more fun in that.

Shooting stuff with a BFG works just fine. All the way from the trooper to the Baron, it's all BFG fodder for me.

I'll use the SSG on anything. It's pretty durn effective. But I won't hesitate to rev up the ol' Eager Beaver when that cascade of spectre's barrels down on me.

zombieman : pistol
group of zombiemen : shotgun (3-in-1! :P)
sarge : shotgun
group of sarges : rocket launcher
Imp : shotgun, berserk
group of imps : chaingun
Demon : ssg
group of demons : rocketlauncher
Lost Soul : shotgun
group of Lost Souls : plasmagun
Pain Elemental : ssg
Group of " " : rocketlauncher
Cacodemon : ssg, rocketlauncher
Group of " ": rocketlauncher, ssg swingshot
Cyberdemon : anything that gets the job done but BFG
Group of " " : Everything but BFG
Spider Mastermind : Rocketlauncher, SSG
Group of " " : Anything but BFG
Boss Brain : Punch (IDCLIP, IDSPISPOPD)

As you can see, I prefer the more "classic" weapons such as the shotgun and chaingun. I don't ever use the BFG on anything, but I do know exactly how to use it effectively when the time comes.

If you want to conserve ammo try crossfiring also, then use berserk. It'll help you out thin crowds to get the job done faster/safer without wasting a bullet. However it depends what baddies your brawling with

I like using foul language for self defense. It seems to work agains those crappy 2D pixelated sprites. They look so dumb that they could be pushed down by the wind.
