There are a lot of wads I like, but off the top of my head, the ones I remember liking clearly in no paticular order:

Biowar (One of the first wads I ever played. I love it.)
Massmouth series
Twilight Zone 2
Bella 2
32in24 series
Gamarra series (Bite me, I dont have actual harsh feelings towards the targets of the wad, I just find it fun and amusing, the way any good jokewad should be.)
Mock 2
Do-tims (I passed this wad up for a long time, but I played it in a Skulltag server not so long ago and found it to be pretty fun and creative.)
Marswar

There are more, but I dont remember at the moment. There ya go.

BTW Yomoneyboat, I'm glad you liked the 1024 proj. Lutrov worked his ass off, it took us a while to make it what it is. :)

It's amazing the quality and detail you can fit into that small space! It inspired me to try a 512 project, but that proved to be too small.

Yes, Hoover.wad and Rabbit Hole.wad were my favorites by Mike Reed! I wonder what happened to all the old school mappers? Also, any one here remember the Innocent Crew?

Personally, my favorite is the old Marines of Uac mod, now Soldiers Stockpile, it completely changes the gameplay experience, even though it's just a weapons mod. As far as level .wads, I'd say Alien Vendetta, TVR!, and that one... the one in the forest, it was made as an art project and only the demo has been released as of yet. I can't remember it's name for some reason, but it was a really spectacular .wad.

P.S. So when is the new MOUAC going to be done Nick? I'm really looking forward to it.

Whenever people mention Mike Reed, I always think of Mike Reid, Aka Prower.

Anyway, my top picks would probably be:
Aliens TC
Zan Zan
RTC-3057
High Tech Hell 2
NimrodPD (For once when mentioning one of my own wads, I'm serious)
Eternal Doom
Darkening E2 (However, I consider this a mixed bag)
Phobos (Roger Ritenour)

Can't really think of any other atm...

Ragnarok


Unless you mean this (which I doubt considering the other wads of your list) Ragnarok (The search for Asgaard, by Team TNT) is on an indefinite hold and as such I doubt you've ever played it.

I've played a lot of wads, but none of them has overpassed Eternal Doom in my favorite listing.

Same for Gulag.wad for Heretic.

Forgot to mention some close runners :

Hellcore 2.0
Alien Vendetta
Demon Eclipse
and some maps in classic Megawads such as the Memento Mori's, Requiem etc.

The ragnarok I was talking about was made by a freind of mine so you peeps probably never played it, but I still might have a copy laying around if any one is interested.

Indeed, that I would be.

Skadoomer's 'Foreverhood'? I played that and really enjoyed it, but as mentioned, it was incomplete, so I was kinda annoyed there wasn't more.

Come to think of it, I would also add:

Hellcore v2.0

No doubt I will edit this post at somepoint if I remember anymore.

That's exactly it! Thanks for reminding me. I was looking through my doom 2 .wads trying to find it, but I did a bit of housecleaning and it must've gotten lost in the process. I felt that 2.5 gigs of .wads was a bit much. I was really disappointed that it wasn't longer as well, but the experience while it lasted was amazing.

Oh, I'll also take this moment to pimp a half-life mod. If any of you still play, and are looking for mods to the original half-life, I'd reccommend "afraid of monsters". Freakiest game I've ever played, the jump factor far outweighs the Resident Evils, probably because it's in first person. The directors cut of it is scheduled to be released 'soonish' I would imagine by halloween or the end of the year. Gotta love those Jacob's Ladder head twitchers.

Scythe 2
The Ultimate Torment & Torture
KDIZD

AND of course there are lots of good oldies like anvil2.wad, icdoom2 etc. Dinner.wad was the first ever pwad episode replacement I played and it still is one of my favourites actually. It's a very good replacement for Episode 2:Shores of Hell. It succeeds in places where the original doesnt. Lots of action and creative tricks and traps throughout the episode. Play it with something that emulates doom 1.2 well. I'll go try how it works with zdoom :D
