WAD's that are worth playing

Recommended Posts

Off the top of my head...

Some of my favourite wads that didn't get Cacowards AFAIK:
* Doom 2 Reloaded
* Rylayeh
* Zone 300
* The 6fiffy series of maps + rt10year
* Equinox, which might have got some kind of accolades but I think everyone should play it anyhow instead of giving nuts.wad attention

Stuff that was released recently that I really liked:
* NOVA (bugfixes almost finished I swear)
* D2INO - kind of a mixed bag and a lot of people didn't like it, so YMMV, but I thought it had a lot of great levels
* Cassie Steele
* Shadows of Chronos (Hexen)
* Any of Chris Hansen's recent maps
* Demon Asylum (this one)
* The Devilz Work

I mean lists like these could go on forever but that along with other posts should get you started.

Doom: Threshold Of Pain (2010)
Eviltech: Soul Of Megawad (2011)

And now you've got me wondering what Brutal Impse would look like. Good grief.

I should mention that if you want to know what you're getting into before downloading several mb of wads, you might want to check here:


and of course, newstuff:


There you go. Combine this with the above answers and you have enough wads & reviews for the rest of your life.


EDIT: And if for some reason you get tired of playing through the good stuff, or just want to download a bunch of 90's stuff with one click, you can download one of these:


But beware: although there's some quality stuff there, they're generally full of shit.
