10: Shooting at monsters until they die
9: Picking up weapons so i can shoot at monsters
8: Picking up health kits so i can shoot at monsters with renewed strength
7: Opening doors so I may meet more monsters to shoot at
6: Getting keys so I can find more monsters to shoot at
5: Using cheats so I can shoot at monsters without fear of dying
4: Causing infighting so that the monsters shoot at monsters while I shoot at monsters
3: Punching monsters before I shoot at them
2: Getting a time freeze powerup so that the monsters can see all the joy I'm having shooting at them
1: Typing MDK in the console to shoot at monsters I'm too weak or cowardly to shoot at legitimately

In no particular order

The general college-brand immaturity that seeped into the final product
The fast-paced action (and in Heretic/Hexen's case, the fact that it's not bogged down with its own RPG elements)
The fact that I can navigate most levels without looking at a map
The great variety of weapons that are all fun to use
The mood (especially in Doom 64)
The extensible engine
The community around it
The fact that it runs on nearly everything
Heretic/Hexen's theme
The multiplayer

Honorable mention: The fact that Quake came out of it

Not a like-scale, each aspect is equally important:

1: Random behaviour of enemies, they cannot be predicted when they'll attack
2: TONS of secret areas!
3: Secret levels, Easter-Egg-ish or not
4: Monster infighting
5: Music
6: The useful inventory items
7: It works on even the oldest laptops, you don't need to buy a damn power plant and download 9 millions of programs to run it
8: The story of the game. Hellgate London is just a poor ripoff
9: The great variety of monsters, as opposed to soldiers just in a different colored uniform
10: The long campaign

In no order whatsoever:

K
Moddability
9
Universally applicable BAL1 graphic

All enemies are literal demons, ironically not actual murder simulator the way most other FPSes are
sieben
Subtle, possibly unintentional Christian critique of modernity, per Lewis, Seraphim Rose, etc.
110
"Robotron 3D gameplay"
۵
Smoothness of movement and elegance of interface without precedent or successor

(G)ZDoom
316
The way the messages are informal and chatty without coming off as talking down to the player

The low-budget pioneer metal/punk vibe to everything (related to #3 and #10, possibly #7)
ܐ
The story!

1. The speed.
2. The setting.
3. The guns.
4. The level design. Often open, plenty of secrets, ambushes, good mix of outdoors and indoors, light and dark, high and low.
5. The sounds.
6. The satisfaction it gives when you blow away enemies.
7. The cooperative mode.
8. The art direction.
9. The no-nonsense simplicity of gameplay. No need to target items and push a key to pick them up - just run over them.
10. The lack of hand-holding. No arrows telling you where to go, no blue circles showing you where the items are etc.

10. Controversies surrounding it
9. Simplistic, old-school gameplay
8. Varied bestiary
7. Level designs
6. The fact that it is an open-source game and anyone can make either source ports or mods based on it
5. Fearsome atmosphere (this is especially true to some console ports, such as the PSX and SNES ports)
4. Large-scale, active community
3. Not overly emphasized story
2. The fact that it innovated both first-person shooter and multiplayer gaming
1. Simplistic engine, which allows it to be played on nearly every platform, be it a computer, a phone, or even a calculator, either with cutting-edge or old technology.
