Thanks for that. I had no idea that there was two versions of the same WAD. The votes for it have now been combined. I guess if Outrageous Videos wants their vote to only be for the first version (ESP) then they will let us know.

The tally in the OP has been updated. It's still pretty tight at the top. Just 10 votes separate Scythe 2 from the top-placed Alien Vendetta. Scythe and Sunlust both move back up a spot to #3 and #4 respectively. Going Down moves into the Top 10, up three places to #8.

woops.  didn't see that part.  I thought it would be funny to have a longer list so i put more effort in to trying to remember the wads i've played.  i trimmed it down.

Hey savagegrant, I mixed up one of my votes. Meant to give Cleimos a point, but gave it to Eternity.  It's not that I changed my mind, just remembered the name of the wad wrong... Oops, sorry. Can you fix it?

Cool thread! Note you have a duplicate that needs merging: holy hell at 121 and 206

So many wads, so little time! I could easily pick a 100 wads to add if points permitted. I could go through this exercise again and come up with a vastly different list. There are 100's of wads that deserve to be listed here, what would you expect from the best game ever created.

Here are some of the more memorable wads. Ranking them is difficult, I went for lower points so I could include more wads on my list. Some of my odd choices are sure to raise a few eyebrows!

3 - Hell Revealed

2 - Ancient Aliens
2 - Scythe

Cool to see more peeps voting. You're only allowed to list 20 though, see one of the more recent thread posts...

 

EDIT: I'm actually in breech of the rules myself, recently asking for a change to my list without listing it out. Here goes (Cleimos replaces Eternity, otherwise identical):

 

10p. Sunder
06p. Nukemine
05p. Dante's Gate
04p. Memento mori
04p. Crucified Dreams
03p. Dystopia 3
03p. 2castles
03p. 300 lines
03p. Swim With The Whales
02p. The Unholy Trinity
02p. Jägermörder
02p. Pirate Doom
02p. Miasma
01p. Saturn X
01p. Cleimos
01p. Demon Eclipse
01p. GothicDM
01p. Jpcp
01p. Iconboss

Thanks @Soundblock. Ignore my previous invalid entry. My new entry below conforms to the 20 wads rule.  What a shame so many good wads won't get the recognition they deserve due to this limitation.

10 - Alien Vendetta (Not a single map I don't look forward to playing, great atmosphere/mood, breathtaking visuals, kick-ass action and enemy placement, music, etc.)

9 - Plutonia 2 (great mix of brutality with beautiful Plutonia-inspired maps, all while kicking up the difficulty of the original, and kickass music (thanks Jimmy))

8 - Memento Mori (classic wad with lots of charm and some cool maps/music)

7 - PRCP (beautiful maps with authentic, albeit ramped-up Plutonia-inspired gameplay and encounters)

6 - Hellbound (lots of cool vistas and atmospheres, which for me made up for some questionable gameplay elements)

5 - Going Down (nobody else maps like mouldy - absolutely diabolical set of maps!)

4 - Doom 2 In Name Only (a mixed bag overall, but the good maps are some of my favorites of all time)

3 - Sunlust (gorgeous, great action - I've only played through it once, but I intend to change that)

2 - Doom 2 Reloaded (kind of an oddball set of maps, with one of my favorite hell episodes)

1 - Valiant (great style and unrelenting action - need to play more of it)

My top 3 are pretty much solidified... however, there are quite a few WADs I need to play that might throw a monkey-wrench in my list (Ancient Aliens, Resurgence, Speed of Doom, etc.)

Alright, let's go then :


8 - Resurgence (the ultimate AV-clone type Megawad, and in that sense the best Megawad conceivable)
6 - Speed of Doom (the barely inferior prequel of the previous entry)
6 - Scythe 2 (Their biggest inspiration, and it shows)
6 - Frozen time (Eternal's masterpiece)
6 - Valiant (Skillsaw's most ambitious and satisfying project to date, except maybe Ancient Aliens which I have yet to beat)
5 - Hell Ground (Eternal's best long-form pWad by far)
4 - UAC Ultra (Came out of nowhere and rocked everything)
3 - Memento Mori II (the secret pearl of the 90s, nothing but high quality maps that really haven't aged much)
3 - Scythe (Certainly a memorable and mostly enjoyable experience)
2 - Vanguard (so many good maps and a good choice for slaughter beginners)
2 - Hell Revealed (the original slaughter megawad, and yet more unique in character than one would think)
2 - Foursite (One of the best stand-alone maps I've ever played)
1 - Aeternum (The unfairly forgotten gem of Skillsaw's career as already pointed out)
1 - Lunatic (A blast over too quickly)

 

Honestly, it was pretty hard to decide how many points to award to which pWad.WADs I wish I had room left for:

 

Suspended in Dusk
Crusades
50 Shades of GRAYTALL
Breach


I have yet to seriously tackle the following, but I imagine they would be worthy candidates otherwise :

 

- Alien Vendetta
- Hell Revealed II
- Kama Sutra
- Sunder
- Back to Saturn X E1/E2
- Going Down
- Sunlust
- Ancient Aliens
- Disjunction
- Water Spirit
- Oscillation
- Ribbik's solo work
- Anything by Death-Destiny
- Toilet of the Gods

 

These next few are admittedly completely unknown to me:

 

- Concerned
- Thy flesh turned into a draft-excluder
- Unloved
- Unholy Realms
- Siwft Death
- 3 heures d'agonie and its sequel
- many other worthy candidates no doubt...

 

P.S I commiserate with whomever would try to get into pWads using this thread as a reference. Not one of the top 10 contenders is accessible to beginner players...
