    Recently, i've been getting in to these great games again, and man, one of the best WADs i've ever played was Heretic: Hordes of Chaos. I highly recommend it to anyone in the WAD scene right now.

    My DOOM WAD list from my WAD folder on my harddrive [WADS, not the actual names, sorry : ( ] :

    10 Sectors
    10 Sectors 2
    1024
    2002ado
    AV
    Bella2
    Brutaldoom - Gameplay modifier, not an actual story based WAD, I wouldn't play without it, and GZDoom, although levels with over 1000 monsters can really lower your FPS, unless you have a good processor.
    Community Chest 1-4
    Epic2
    Eternall
    Eviltech
    Hc092604
    HellAwakened
    Hells Bells
    HellRevealed
    HellRevealed2final
    Ht
    Icarus
    Jenesis
    Jenesis2
    Ksutra
    MM
    MM2
    Ndcp
    Ndcp2
    Neodoom
    PL2
    Requiem
    Scythe
    Scythe2
    Sodfinal
    WOS
    Twilight Zone 1-2




    All of these are megawads, meaning they all have over 32 levels and a story, so you'll have plenty of content. Some of these are Doom 2 WADs others are for regular Doom, I don't really know which ones are which, but 90% of them are for Doom 2.

    I've only been dabbling in Doom2 WADS to play with Aeons of Death, and Hell Revealed II and Alien Vendetta are fun WADS to play that in.

    A few notable Doom WADs i've enjoyed:

    Psychic: Weapon mod, mix weapon attacks with psychic powers, spend currency to level up different guns and powers
    Parkour: Weapon mod, Doom with lots of jumping and wall climbing and zooming around, quite fun
    Stronghold: Weapon/level mod, Defend your base from invading enemies, buy on-use powerups with currency between levels. About 12ish levels to pick from?
    Night of the Homeless: Weapon/level mod, kill as many homeless and giant ghosts as you can, rack up a high score.

    Oh, and for Hexen: Hexen Serpent Resurrection. Adds a new class and stats (STR, DEX, etc) to allocate. Can use the stat systems standalone in the original game or play through a user-made campaign. I haven't played through the created campaign but the original game was really enjoyable with the changes.

    If you like Hell Revealed, you should try out the Scythe Megawads as well.

    Back when doom was actually still 'in' I remember trying hundreds (maybe thousands) of mods and one in particular stood out but i cant remember its fucking name. It was UAC something. You started off entering a complex and fighting your way through the company, ending up at a board members room (full of monsters of course) which then led into hell itself.. when you reach the bottom there is a dead space marine being sacrificed (and he used an invisible platform to have the body rise into the air) Then after all this you end up entering a spaceship and hitting a button to end the (single huge) level.

    It blew my min back when i was like 10 or 11

    Brutal doom creator now working on Brutal Hexen/Heretic:



    Also, Brutal Doom creator is now working on a new weapon expansion pack for Brutal Doom called Brutal Arsenal:



    From what i've played of it, it's alright, but none of the guns are set to gib properly yet. Also, for some reason, the guy put rocket launcher zombie soldiers as a standard "shotgun zombie pseudo-replacement".

    D/L link below

    http://www.moddb.com/mods/brutal-do...senal-expansion-pack-first-beta-november-30th

    *** EDIT *** Brutal Arsenal "Expected a name but got something else" CTD error fixed, D/L this version instead

    If you want to avoid a bit of frustration, I'd probably scrap the WAD you downloaded for this and try the newest one.

    I made that mod a few years ago, and being the first one I'd done, I made a few rookie mistakes and tossed in some annoying effects and monsters. I just uploaded a newer one that replaces all of that with the standard monsters, it's a bit more fun that way I think.

    After beating your Wad, killing the Reanimator, and playing both versions, I have to say I like the older version with the custom monsters better. No contest. The only thing I didnt like about the old version were some of the 3D stuff. The custom monsters were awesome.

    ^ This. Although I use Skulltag , since the performance when using the high-res textures, is much better than GZDoom.



    ^ And this.

    I've started playing them Alphabetically. I'm now being raped by Revenants in one of the Community Chest wads , as I foolishly decided to play it in Ultra-Violence with Brutal Doom on top.

    I think the latest Brutal Doom replaces Nightmare with Brutal mode, which gets rid of the infinite respawns, but makes the monsters a lot stronger, and their projectiles faster, like Heretic or Hexen.
