Doom: e1m5
Doom 2: map29
Evilution: map02
Plutonia: map24

All maps are subjects to change :P

Has there ever been a "real poll" for the "best ever map" by the DW users? (or rather "most popular")

It can be done like this:

Someone starts a thread, stating the rules etc, then everyone can nominate their favorite map (one map only, from one of the IWADS. The thread starter choose which IWAD) simply by posting in the thread. The thread can be open for lets say 1 week. Then the thread is closed and the thread starter counts up all nominations, and makes sure no-one has voted twice, or nominated more than one map etc. When done he makes a new thread with a poll. The poll contains the top 10 maps (the 10 maps with the most nominations). The thread can be open for another week to let everyone vote. Lets say if the map I nominated didnt make it to the top 10 list, I can vote for the one I like the best out of the ten, or simply dont vote at all.

Theeeen again, a final thread can be made: Top 3, or 5. The grand finale. Same procedure as the last thread.

I dunno. I find things like this interesting, even though its simply a popularity contest :P

Also I guess it will be more fun with Evilution or Plutonia, because with Doom and Doom 2, e1m1 and map01 will probably win anyway :P

MAP10 Refuelling Base is one of my faves from Doom 2.

But here I notice a bug. :-/ Do you see it, too?

Only one side of that door actually requires a Blue Key to open. It's possible to reach the side that doesn't require a key, without having already got the Blue Key, through use of a secret teleporter.

Too many to count. I'll just name one from each game:

DooM: E2M2.

DooM 2: Tough choice. I think I'll go with Downtown, since it's an amazing level.

Plutonia: Odyssey of Noises.

TNT: Can't remember the name, but the one level with the huge area with lots of grates is a terrfic level imo.

I actually kind of like the concept for that level... shame that it is basically the same level repeated twice with just some texture variation.

Knee Deep in the Deep is tied for first. There isn't a bit of fat on this one; every map is essential to the experience of the whole.

For The Shores of Hell: m1, m2, m4. These maps are just about perfect. This episode tends to develop a blah feeling in the three maps leading up the Cyberdemon battle. The secret map is especially blah. It's the sort of map that a beginner would make today just as a tester.

For Inferno: m3, m6. The Hell Base nature of map 3 is a lot of fun. It has decent challenge and great atmosphere. Map 6 is still awesome in that wide open feeling, and less linear design.

Thy Flesh Consumed: The Romero maps, but they are a pain. Some of these maps in this episode come off as too cheap in design. Also, the unbalanced difficulty is annoying. The first two levels are mega-hard, and then most of the rest is quite easy!

Doom 2

The first 11 maps are mostly really good. The second half of the game is a big drop off for me. I also missed the episode format here. I liked being able to jump into three different sets of maps based on whim. The result, for me, of having just one big episode means that I'll be playing the first levels the most, since the game forces me (without cheating) to start with them. Maybe it's because these are the best levels before the lame 'Earth' set.

Doom 1

-Knee deep in the dead(duh)
-E2M7(Spawning Vats).Imo this is the best level in DooM 1 level because it takes elements from all episodes and makes one nicely detailed and interesting map.
-E3M8 for the kickass music!

Doom 2
-map 01,02,04 and 30

Map 9 and 10 tons and tons of action and kickass music in Stronghold level(which actially feels like a stronghold)

All of KDiZD,level 26 and 27 from Scythe 2 and Vulcana from WoS
