42Per...you're 1 WAD short ;)

But I spent all my points -- to move any points around would totally mess up the precisely calculated proportion of points merited by each of the previously enumerated WADs. ;-)

 

I'll see what I can do...

AA is the only one listed that I've actually played. What is an inexperienced Doomer such as myself doing on this thread??

Man, I would love having more experience, but since I haven't been playing custom wads for many years, here is my list:

 

BTSX E1 - 10 points  (jaw drops to the floor first time I played it)

Scythe 2 - 9 points  (even better gameplay than Scythe 1)

Scythe 1 - 8 points  (easy to learn, hard to master)

Ancient Aliens - 7 points  (gorgeous)

Epic 2 - 6 points  (multiple themes with the egyptian being the most important)

The Adventures of Square - 5 points  (colourful graphics and enemies that go splash when killed, Yey)

Sunlust - 4 points  (challenging and beautiful at the same time, with slaughtermap characteristics)

Earth.wad - 3 points  (looks very good at the start and it is challenging all the way through)

NGmvmt2 - 2 points  (the levels I played of it are hard to 100%, but have reasonable solutions)

Cyberdreams - 1 point  (clever puzzles, but it feels more of a sidegame like Romero's Death Skittles)

 

Note that I haven't finished all of them, but I played most of these long enough to see if I like them or not. Obviously, as time changes, I may put a new one here or rearrange the already existing ones. Also, I don't know if adding Earth would appeal to you guys, but I enjoyed it enough, for it to be in my list (found it randomly on a wiki or wikia page). I would also add Romero's new level, but he belonged to the id team, so I don't think it counts to do that.

10 points goes to Violence (best style, best music, best monster placement, lots of violet, and red)

9   points goes to memento mori (second best monster placement ever)

8   points goes to scythe 2  (great level design, and monster placement is great)

7   points goes to hell grounds (third best monster placement I've ever seen, and new sounds)

6   points goes to nuts.wad (i like the idea, music, and everything related to this map. Don't hate the player, hate the game)

5   points goes to scythe 1 (first half is cool, then it gets worse with every map, but still playable)

4   points goes to ancient aliens (i like the idea and style)

3   points goes to freedoom phase 1 (nice level design, and very nice textures)

2   points goes to ice_rage  (biggest map i've ever seen, and has good monster placement)

1   point  goes to action doom 2 (STYLE)

10: Deus Vult II - (always loved this one, not a whole lot of slaughter except for 3 and a half levels, plus the suicide exits being optional, why haven't others done things like this?)

9: Epic 2 - (immersion and setting kill it)

8: Ancient Aliens - (great difficulty curve all around, better than Valiant with less annoyances)

7: Going Down - (ludicrous fun, works well on any difficulty setting)

6: Alien Vendetta - (killer lighting and everything)

5: Bloodstain - (immersive, AV-like)

4: Khorus - (love Shadowman's wads, over-the-top music and great settings + gameplay)

3: Community is Falling 3 - (deserves to be on here)

2: Dark Covenant - (mostly because of the Metallica MIDIs that actually drive the 90's gameplay for me)

1: Hell Revealed 2 - (MIDIs again, also it's always fun to revisit)

 

I missed a lot of course, but screw it. Mine is based on replayability and overall enjoyment.

10 points - Valiant (Excellent custom enemies. Cyberwar 7734.)

9 points - Sunlust (The best action-based megawad.)

8 points - Hellbound (Great atmosphere, visuals and transitions between level.)

7 points - Epic 2 (Clever puzzles, secrets and surprisingly challenging gameplay.)

6 points - Urania (Huge, non-linear maps without any hand-holding and brutal gameplay.)

5 points - Plutonia 2 (Great sequel with larger, more ambitious maps and the best looking IoS boss.)

4 points - Ancient Aliens (Unique visuals, fast and fun gameplay and nice OST. Not better than Valiant.)

3 points - Vanguard (Just plain fun.)

2 points - A.L.T. (Insane amounts of creativity and originality. map11. Gay Nukem: Hot Hot Hot!)

1 point - Resurgence (A more consistent sequel to Speed of Doom with large, interesting maps. map25-30 feature high quality ball-busting.)

"The Mucus Flow" is not a WAD, it's a map from Cchest2

I know but I didn't care that much for the other stuff but I guess I should've mention that it's from Community Chest 2.
