What’s Awesome, Doom?

wad

Doom is closer to my heart than almost any other game. My relationship with the grandpappy of first-person shooters started in 1994 and it’s still going strong today, entirely due to the sheer amount of custom content there is out there. Doom is one of the easiest- and most-modded games of all time. This column is my attempt to explore the vast and chaotic sea of Doom WADs, diving into its dark depths and wrestling with the jaws of death to return with the biggest, shiniest pearls I can find. By which I mean playing a bunch of mods and telling you which ones are the absolute awesomest.
