Which is the best Doom addon ever?

Postby DoomDude2009 » Tue May 12, 2009 2:41 pm

There's so many addons available I find it hard to choose which one I want to play. Is there any addon that has been specifically labeled as 'the best of all' by a large number of people?

Well, it's my opinion, but you can't go wrong with Action Doom. The second one, not so much, but Action Doom 1 is a winner.

Not at all. Depending on which forum you go to you will get different answers, and then when you come down to the different groups spread across the forums and then down to the individuals. You'll be hard pressed to even get a definitive personal choice from a lot of people.

Based on doomworld /idgames's user rating system:

1. Batman Doom -- best with 100+ votes
2. Suspended in Dusk -- best with 75+ votes
3. Thunderpeak -- best with 50+ votes

You know, you might actually ask what the best ZDoom WAD is.

Of course, that will degrade into an Action Doom vs. KDiZD fight in a big hurry. :?

It would be impossible to have a unanimous "best" mod but there are mods out there that are highly praised, like the Action Dooms, Zen Dynamics, KDIZD, Immoral Conduct, Hell Revealeds, Memento Moris, etc.

When I'm introducing friends to ZDoom, I typically show them .wads that show them how far Doom as come. I introduced a friend to ZDoom by first showing him WWHC-Diaz, Action Doom 2, and KDiZD.

It's these kind of mods that I feel are the best. When you play them, you can see how far people have taken the engine and made wonderful things to play out of it. There is no definite "best wad ever", however, but I do recommend playing a large variety of wads and forming your own opinion over the matter.

In terms of "add-ons", it's possible to say ZDoom itself, simply because it supplies so much more fun to the Doom engine we all know and love.

:D

Thanks. I played Eternal Doom a while ago but didn't think it was too good, the levels were way too large and eventually got bored. I'm playing Alien Vendetta right now, and so far so good, it is challenging enough for me. I think I'm gonna go try this Action Doom you guys mentioned, I never heard of it.

You know a WAD you should try? Cyberdreams. It's vanilla, but it is simply superb and I've yet to play another WAD like it.
