Cacowards 2016 Nomination Thread

Recommended Posts

Having played it after my last post in this thread, I'm going to jump on the Ancient Aliens bandwagon.

For Mockaward I'd say Trump Doom should get it. DooD and HDoom are very well done and amusing in their own ways, but TD just barely edges them out.

I'll still have to pick DooD over Trump Doom, but I have to say I'm pleasantly surprised at how much effort was put in, I thought it would just be a cheap joke rather than a proper little Doom experience.

I would like to place my vote for Total Chaos, please.

Edit: ...or maybe it doesn't qualify yet. At any rate, it's fuckin' badass.

DooD certainly gets the mockaward, I will be shocked if anything else gets it...

I will shout something like "mien labal neim!" if it doesn't.

In all seriousness though, foursite sounds great for cacoward, one of the more innovative levels I've seen recently... From dodging a long range mancubi bombardment while platforming, to riding a rather risky, and pit prone elevator full of lost souls, this map has so many neat concepts, it deserves recognition, even if not as a cacoward, it really seems like something worth remembering.

And now that dump 3 came out....I think the series deserves recognition for just getting so many people to try mapping. I know I made a map for it, for 3, but so many maps made in a year from 1 project is pretty astounding imo. plus, managing and making a nearly 80 map wad for dump 3 takes a lot of work.

EDIT: actually just tried trump doom and...holy crap, VERY strong contender for mockaward, good zdoom usage, comedy, and it made me value the doom pistol again. Pretty fun gameplay, lots of laughs, and generally a good time all around.

More stuff I'd like to nominate:
Gary Gritness's and Andrew Hulshult's Doom OST remixes.
ECHELON. I haven't completed it yet, and, although the first few maps sucked a lot, what I've played of E3 kicks ass (map21-23).

Hell on Earth Starter Pack (even in supposed-demo form it completely rocks visually, technically and in gameplay)
Blade of Agony (one of the best ever techically, and nails the RTCW feel perfectly)
DUMP 3 (naturally a mixed bag, but there are many amazing maps in here)
Echelon (interesting ideas and plays well too)

(I have played more than just these ofc, but the other ones worth mentioning have been nominated 1000 times already)

I think DUMP's been mentioned a few times in the thread; not sure why bzzrak's lists keep omitting it.

Not to say he doesn't have a good reason, just that I don't know what it is (if I had to guess, my own mention of it doesn't count since I contributed, but I dunno what reason the other mentions would be discounted under).

^ Almost all of the DUMP nominations are dated July or earlier, which is when Voros made a list which I had been using as a base. So don't blame me.
Here, see for yourself:
https://www.doomworld.com/vb/newsearch.php?query=%22DUMP%22+threadid%3A85009


Though, I did accidentally skip mumblemumble's nomination. Sorry dude!

So overall DUMP was mentioned 5 times so far.

Hmm, DUMP was nominated just once then, BUT there were some "mehs" about it so I thought it wasn't a nomination eg "i think DUMP should be mentioned" not "I nominate DUMP for Cacoward!"
The ratio of mentions:nominations was basically 3:1, so I probably overlooked it while writing the post, by mistake (Pretty sure I noted it while counting the number of votes).

Blame me.

Final nominations for me, I believe:

-Bloodstain
-Ancient Aliens
-JPCP
-rf1024
-Return to Hadron E2 (it's still in beta, I understand)
-AD_79's plutonia maps

Been a good year for DOOM WADs overall though. Pretty good selections guys!


Oh, also H-DOOM for mockaward. ;^)

Wasn't really looking to blame, more looking for reasoning - which I've gotten (it was missed) - so apologies if I came off as blaming.

Ancient Aliens
Blade of Agony: Chapter 1
Stardate 20X7
Innocence X
Strange Aeons

Best Gameplay wad is a tossup between Brutal Doom 64 and Doom 4 for Doom, i thoroughly enjoyed both although D4D is definitely more polished so that one edges it out for me.

DooD for Mockaward

I nominate Aeon DM for the Cacowards. The environment for each map is absolutely astounding and even adds a new quake-style feel to Doom LMS and Deathmatch genres. 33 maps of pure fun. +1
