Must. Nominate. Phobos. by. Roger. Ritenour.

/end RoboScuba

Probably some of the best E1 feeling ever, in an actual cohesive levelset.

Has Equinox been mentioned yet???


Also Memento Mori 2 will always stand for me as the epitome of a no-nonsense straight edge megawad.

I would like to mention something by LilWhiteMouse as the best port-specific works, but she never releases anything.

Why not instead of having it choose "The BEst wad", instead it chronicalize the influencial wads that became classics over the ten years. And have a little comparison of the first wads that came out in 1994 and the kinds of wads now being produced - showing how far Doom has come.

Dunno if this was posted (sorry, don't feel like reading through it all), but make sure Alberto Barsella's MNT_FIRE makes it in there. (I believe it's under a different name in the archives, tohugh.) Oh, and DARKHELL as well.

Great suggestions guys (Janizdreg: Thanks for suggesting cbs_se_11) ;)

I'd suggest Voidship. It's for both 1 and 2 so it'll work.

I have it somewhere if you cant find it. damn d!zone cds. hehe

EDIT: Grimm! DARKHELL as in the e2 replacement with the funky lights and huges maps? Awesome. One of my old favs.

Since I'm talking favs...

/me thinks hard...

10Sectors
Doomworld Speedmaps
DARKHELL
Voidship D1 and D2 versions
Memento Mori 1 & 2
Alien Vendetta
Brotherhood of Ruin.
Trinity of Evil (Heretic version also)
Uac_Dead
Obticuary
Raven Series
Satan666
H2HMud Series (Hard COOP maps)
Serenity 1 & 2 (Eternity) Doom1 E2 and E3 replacements
The other Eternity
Securitron
The Darkening 1 & 2
Batman Doom
Inferno Series (Crossing Acheron Dantes Gate etc)
Ledges Series (We need these on ZDaemon people!)
MAULHI2.wad
Doom2: The Master Levels
Wastelands (DEADBASE.wad MNTFIRE.wad)
Ultimate Doom 2 X, GOLD
GothicDM 1 & 2
Gothic99 and other GothicXX
Rhea 1 & 2 (ahem)
Chainsaws and Boomsticks Series (cough)
um... and pretty much all the other ones listed in the thread.

But hey lets not forget old Doom programs we used back in the day like DMAUD, DMMUS, DMGRAPH, Dehacked, old WINTEX and the like.

Make sure you throw in honorable mention or something like that, too. I need a directory of good WADs too, not just the best. ;)

Yep, that DARKHELL. :)

I'm not certain if this has been mentioned yet, but Chris Hansen's Flay the Obscene series definitely deserves a mention (and a review in the /newstuff of Ten Years :P)

/newstuff has been around for 10 years? Wow, I had no idea. I figured it was more of a 7 year thing.

Immoral Conduct should be mentioned. It's like, the definitive weapons mod.

And stuff.

The /newstuff folder has been around almost as long as Doom itself. The oldest mentions I am aware of are from 1994, when it was at the infant ftp site.

Presumably everything currently in the archive was at some point in /newstuff.

Having said that, the feature will most likely include a few wads that aren't in the archive.

No. Don's challenge. Swiggin Jack Daniels and smoking cigarettes is far more original than another form of projectile launcher.

I enjoyed the following single player wads for Doom 2:

...

foa*.wad series (For Boom compatible ports, I think maybe I didn't play all of these, but I recall the ones I did play were pretty good) --Draconia

I know the creator of those levels personally. Harq (or Deth, in the days of the BBS) was the creator, and a personal friend of my father. My dad (Nickledime -- and yes, that's the right spelling) was his personal playtester.
All I could do was watch when they were hogging up the computers.
I don't have a great list of personal favorites, but I didn't like Aliens TC for some reason. Memento Mori II and Eternal Doom (release 3) have to be my favorites.
