    Doom Turns Sixteen


    Bloodshedder

    Oh look, it's that damn cake again. I guess you know what that means. Yes, today marks the day 16 years ago when Doom shareware was uploaded to the University of Wisconsin's FTP server. And for the past six years, we at Doomworld have graced our readers with a new feature highlighting the year's best releases, as nominated by you and chosen by Scuba Steve.

    This year, we are proud to present The 16th Annual Cacowards. Also, please don't take the logo image as a stab against Asians. I'm sure Scuba Steve didn't mean it that way.

    Good stuff. Nice to see NDCP2 win an award (considering I made 3 maps for it *cough*) :P

    Congratulations to all the winners, and well done to Mechadon for a well deserved mapper of the year award! :D

    I'm a little sad to not see GW2 there, but between the best mapper and the worst wad, justice is served.

    Heh, you guys are too kind :)

    I'm still reading but so far I'm really enjoying it. I've still got a few of those awarded projects to play through sometime. And it was nice to see the side-tribute to Espi.

    Also LOL at the worst wad award.

    Seems like another great wrap-up to a good year of Doom. I think I particularly like the fact that this time I did actually play at least half of the best wads for the year.

    The worst wad award mirrors my own thoughts on the matter perfectly - I've been pointing out the problems with telling people they should detail as if that's all that matters to T667 for a while now.

    Congratulations to all award recepients, particularly Mechadon for his efforts overall. Well done to the team for doing it within two hours of the end of the birthday for those of us here in the UK as well :P

    Awesooooome! I was just playing LOS before this and goddamn, glad to see it in the Cacowards.

    I believe I joined this site shortly after Espi's passing. I've gone through a few of his wads now and having not done so yet, I just wanted to pay my respects. He deserved all the praise that he got.

    Minor typo:

    NewDoom Community Map II

    In the table of contents thingo, though correct on the actual page.

    A very interesting read through. Mechadon was also my pick for mapper of the year by miles. I'd love to see Mechadon make a WOS like megawad one day.

    I'm actually surprised to get a Cacoward this year. I mean everyone (meaning scuba and essel :P) kept telling me Mapgame was good, but that good? :P

    Hooray!

    Best worst-wad award ever.

    I agree. :P

    No... it was intentional. The II was too long so it dropped to a third line. I didn't like it so I just shortened the wad name :P

    As usual, another great asskicking Cacoward.
    A bit disappointing that Greenwar2 didn't win best multiplayer but oh well UDMX is just as awesome. also...

    I've said it in every year, but it's no longer relevant: nobody plays Dwango5 anymore. This year, you'll be lucky to get anyone away from Ghouls vs Humans long enough to play a regular Deathmatch set.


    lol this is very true cause I haven't seen anyone played on a Dwango5 server for months O_o
    Anyway, grats to everyone who made these wads this year!

    This is wonderful, but I have to admit that my porn wad (TUFHPDW) isn't there :-P! Of course it is from 2007...

    As usual, your doctor recommended daily dose of regurgitated bullshit from the community. BCDM3 should have won last year... and this year.

    Buttchaps will never win, just lose.

    Also daily? Since when is once a year daily?

    These cacowards got it sussed. The obvious winners are here (whispers of satan, plutonia 2), and there are even a few wads I forgot about that I remember enjoying. Great job, and congrats to the winners!

    Holy shit, ravage got a Cacoward? STOP THE PRESSES!

    </bad joke>

    Seriously, congrats to all the winners. Having played most (if not all) of the winning wads myself (and having personally reviewed at least one winner), I can agree to the awesomeness of these wads.

    Here's to another year of Doom greatness!
