The BEST - part Deux.

Recommended Posts

So, I put together the input of people on here, r/doom on reddit and my own forums and I came up with the list you see. Here are the names of the wads (with links to play them). We'll let this go for awhile and add up all the votes at the end. When I do the "best of" page, I'll order them based on the votes of the users.

Thanks to Chris Hansen, there is now a place that you can vote:
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/142KR3qlIpgSjpdS-TWAXsTJyceeU2kfYwcqsUqjwpI0/viewform

:-)
So, here's the list - if there are any you haven't played - givem a whirl!

So how does this work exactly? Am I supposed to vote again, or is the second round only for those who didnt vote in the first round?

This post did it pretty well. I'm sure there are some great PWADs missed, plus its a few years out of date. If you could basically update this one that would be awesome.

On a different note, I was hoping that for DOOM's 20th anniversary a list of 'The Top 200 WADs of All Time' would be created. 'Doesn't the Cacowards already do this?' You may ask? Well, not exactly. It's the top 10 (or more including runner-ups) but some years have had 20+ amazing WADs while other years, even the back end of the top 10 haven't aged very well. A top 200 of all time would let each WAD stand head to head with the others regardless of the time of its release.

There are some problems with this, I'll be the first to admit. One being that ground breaking 'historical' WADs may get the boot because the tricks and techniques those mappers pioneered are now common place and often times are done better. The other is that 'The Best' is so subjective that someone's favorites are bound to be left off the list. Another is that each and every year the list would need to be updated and revised. How would it be decided what gets added and what gets pulled? Anyways, it is an interesting thought.

Na, this is a whole new round. Once it's done, I'll tally up the votes and then when I go to put the page together I'll work my way down from the number 1 to the number whatever. I have a feeling it's going to be a fairly extensive project because I want to do screenshots and such and maybe a mini review on each one.

I was thinking of doing something like this once. I wanted to find out what is generally considered 'the best map ever' in the DW community.

Like this: Make a thread where everyone could nominate ONE MAP, their favorite map. After a couple of months, make a new thread with the top 10 maps (most nominations), and have everyone vote for their favorite map among those ten maps. Then have the grand finale among the top 3 maps from the second round. The map that got the most votes from the top 3 is 'the best map'.

Well, out of these I vote for Memento Mori II of course.


Chris Hansen sent me a page of what could be used for an actual voting link. Good idea. So, I guess we'll see if we can get that up.

Hell revealed again. Don't really understand this second topic, won't everybody be voting for the same wad they nominated?


I'm hoping that people will:

1. take the time to maybe play something they haven't played once they see the link and perhaps take a second look at it
2. See this thread and vote when they didn't in the first one

Total voting so far:



Looks like we have a tie going on and some maps that got nominated but haven't received any votes!

So, I think I'm going to wrap this up at the end of this week. If you have any last minute votes, be sure to get them in. The votes have been updated and as you can see, we have a tie between 4 wads and some have zero votes so be sure to get them in!
I'll start work on this next week. :-)
