Just to do something I rarely do (post a new thread in the General forum), here's a question to y'all: (Look at topic heading)

I think my all-time favorite is Memento Mori 1 (which I should have got my hands around YEARS ago instead of just a few months ago).
MM2 is also badass, but all my fav Memento Mori maps are in MM1.

Hmmm. I guess AV.wad. It’s the only unofficial mega wad I've come close to finishing. I like a lot of the maps in 10sector.wad too.

never finished a megawad, unless 1337.wad and mock 2 count.

A toss up between Requiem and Eternal Doom. Requiem is action packed and gritty, but Eternal Doom still installs in me a sense of wonder and amazement that's difficult to resist.

I haven't really played many megawads, but one I really like is eNJay's ZDoom 2001 (the one with sloped ceilings/floors). Not finished yet ;-)

1337.wad

By the way, this belongs in the Wads and Mods forum, you silly knowledge-lacking newbie :)

Hmm, hard to say, and I haven't finished all the megawads. I always accidentally save over my saves from megawads :(

I nearly finished Memento mori 2, but some of the final maps (28,29 maybe?) were so crappy that I couldn't finish it. I wonder how did they get to the megawad that is so exellent... Eternal Doom looks good, but I haven't played it much yet, mainly because my brother played it and he had serious problems trying to find the way in some maps.

There are so many megawads I've liked that I don't know what to say. Maybe MM2 (I never finished MM1).

I'd have to say Hellraiser for Doom2 but I might be partial since I helped develop it. ;-)

I haven't played many megawads. I usually just play single level wads. Anyone want to suggest any (and give me a URL) so that I could play some?

I have tons of MW on my computer but AV, Icarus and Requiem are my favorites.

I think magikal's post covered most of the main ones. Note that this thread contains some useful suggestions. Also Doom Underground and Sir Robin's Doom Castle feature very reliable reviews of many wads and megawads.

I'll just mention two more megawads. The first I regard as a "must-play" - I rank it above everything except HR and AV. The second is quirky, but lots of fun:
STRAIN
H2H-XMAS

I think a few multi-level episodes (i.e. not full 32/36-level megawads) deserve a mention too:
Enigma
Equinox
Death Tormention II
Slayer
Iditarod
Odyssey
Hacx
Doom Resurrection
Hell Revealed II
Murderous Intent
All these are very highly recommended, and a good challenge.

Well, I'm guessing that's a top ten list there, so his favorite would be Memento Mori 2. Strange that Eternal wasn't on that list.

If megawads weren't as popular and so many great levelsets didn't exist, then my choice would be easier, but as is.. I couldn't narrow it down to an absolute favorite if I tried. Personally, I really enjoy playing all mini/mega episodes, so I find them all appealing for one reason or another. Every episode already stated could be my favorites. :)

Also, thanks for pasting some episodes I was not aware of.. now I have even more adventures to try!

Ah yes must be MM2.
Heroes and Heroes2 don't seem to have been mentioned yet.
Yep, Eternal is hauntingly beautiful, a wonderful megawad. HR is missing too....
