So what's good?

Recommended Posts

Pretend I haven't played Doom since Alien Vendetta came out.

Oh wait, no need to pretend. I haven't :)

So what WADs would you recommend?

Some parameters:
- I have both Doom 2 and Ult Doom
- I have Chocolate Doom and ZDoom (and I don't want to download a million other source ports)
- multi-level WADs preferred (a single level WAD will need to be something really special to convince me to download it)
- I prefer my Doom without new monsters or weapons unless the new stuff is done really, really well.

Thanks!

I suspect I played h2h-xmas when it first came out. 1996 was a peak Doom period for me :)

Clusterone and esselfortium's recommendations are now all downloaded.

One other thing I should mention: I'm a distinctly average (probably below average) player. So WADs that pride themselves on being tough are probably not a good idea unless they actually have difficulty levels enabled :)

Edit: Belial's recs downloaded as well. Even HR2, though I expect I'll be playing that on HNTR, at most :)

Try Scythe. I think you may like it because, like your Dmonfear, it has a series of smaller levels, except for the later ones that are bigger.

A couple of other WADs you might like are The Revolution (TVR) and Scientist 2 (Sci2).

Thanks to Deeforce, I now appear to be downloading the entire internet :)

myk: I don't mind playing big levels. I even don't mind building them, from time to time ... I just didn't fancy doing 32 levels worth of big stuff :)

I looked at dmonfear for the first time in nearly ten years yesterday. There's some good stuff, but there's some ... not so good stuff ... too.

One flaw it has is that some REJECT lumps are corrupt, which prompted players to use a fix-up WAD along with it to record demos with Doom2 v1.9, as otherwise they desynch.

Pretty much everything else I would recommend has been mentioned already.


Some of those are single level wads, but they're quite good imo.

Deus Vult and Deus Vult 2 for those days where you have a death wish and want to bring as many demons down with you before you die. ;V
