If you can only get one, get Doom2. The source port SMMU lets you play Ultimate Doom levels using Doom2. I don't know exactly how to do that though (I've never tried it). You might want to read the documentation that comes with it to find out how. You can get SMMU from the source port section here on Doomworld.

Ya all the best and newest stuff is for Doom 2 now. And I agree, get Depths of DOOM Trilogy.

You can download SMMU there.

Regarding which is the better game. In my opinion Ultimate Doom is better than Doom2. The atmosphere is better, the mapping is better and the all around playablilty is better. Still, the majority of new single player levels and practically all dm levels are made for Doom2. I would go with Doom 2 (get them both if you can though). It has better legs so to speak.

[Ultimate] Doom is the best in terms of everything. Most add-ons are for Doom2 because of it's map structure (32 maps in a row as opposed to separate episodes) and because it has twice as many enemies.

All that stuff you wanted; atmosphere, gameplay, fun, etc. is in Ultimate Doom. Doom2 has some OK points, but like most sequels, just couldn't cut it.

If you're talking about addon WADs however, almost all of them are for Doom2, so you're kinda stuck. Like everybody else said, find the Depths of Doom trilogy.

ultimate doom is far better than doom2 BUT if you have the slightest interest in playing user made addons you'll need doom2.

SMMU lets you play Doom I wads using the Doom 2 IWAD. All you need is the Doom 2 IWAD.
