10p: Breach.wad (Single best doom map I have encountered)

9p: Lunatic.wad (Short and Sweet set of 5 maps that are too much fun)

8p: D2TWID (Lovely set of vanilla maps)

7p: Valiant.wad (More of the above, I find lunatic's maps more fun on average. Ep 4 bogs down a bit in valiant)

6p: Unholy Realms (Lot of doomers don't have this one on their radar, but fucking love blasting through UR)

5p: Pirate Doom (Can't compliment it enough, only reason it's not top 3 is weapon balancing issues)

4p: Sunlust.wad (I think ribbiks maps sadly get underrated from me since "slaughter")

3p: Scythe.wad (While the 2nd iteration is fun, the first is entertaining besides 2 maps. S2 has a shit end imo)

2p: Memento Mori 2 (old school maps and a kicking soundtrack to boot)

1p: BTSX Ep 1 (It's telling how much fun shit is released by you mappers when BTSX is last on my list.)

The tally in the OP has been updated.

 

Scythe moves up to 2nd spot to make it a Scythe series quinella, though, Scythe 2 now has a pretty big lead.

Interesting thread.

 

5: Hacx (the levels have very distinct themes, some enemies and monsters are cool, breakable decorations, a pistol that's actually useful)

 

5: Strife (now you can talk to the monsters! And the plot, voice acting, design are all spot on.)

 

5: TNT: Evilution (that music though.)

 

5: Doom 64 (Technically it is a WAD. Right?)

 

5: Freedoom Phase 2 (that music though.)

 

5: Nex Credo (Jayextee's maps are excellent in design.)

 

5: Doomworld Forums 3 (You know it's hilarious)

 

5: Doom 64 Retribution (A real Doom 64 port to GZDoom, with an (upcoming) episode to connect Doom 2016 and Doom 64)

 

5: Mock 2 (Because we all love getting revenge on the zombiemen that killed your relatives.)

 

There's plenty more, but this is all I can think of right now.

 

@bzzrak

  • Lack of the original COLORMAP lump. Apparently uses Freedoom's lump IIRC
  • Ugly text messages? Or maybe that's a feature?
  • That feeling of being unfinished.

I very recently looked up some things on Hacx, and it looks like a 1.3 is/was planned by Blzut3. Not sure what happened.

I'd like to point out that my vote for Hacx is for the original freeware release, and definitely not the "1.2 iwad" version. So this would be the most appropriate link to give. Or just the whole directory.

What's the issue with 1.2? Serious question.

Why, may I ask? Freedoom's listed, and its an IWAD. The OP doesn't say "PWADs only", just WADs.

I would count HacX and Freedoom despite being iwads since they're basically just TCs. Doom64 and TNT on the other hand are official parts of the Doom series, not community wads.

I started writing up a list a couple of minutes ago, but quickly realised that listing preferences in this sort of framework may be considered an effective posting of the Cacowards in May.

Unless you restrict your list to wads made before November 2016, of course.

Everyone else who has voted so far seems to understand what is meant by a WAD. I could state in the OP what is considered to be an eligible WAD if I have to. I've just noticed that you had only voted for 9 WADs in the first place. None of your votes can be accepted at this stage.
