Under a Checkered Sky: Let's Play DooM WADs

DooM came out in 1993, and DooM II came out only a year later. Together, they revolutionized first person shooters and gaming in general. They were known for their violence, monsters, weapons, and tight level design. Then a bunch of idiots with computers figured out how to make their own violence, monsters, weapons, and levels using the DooM engine. The results are... middling.
Some of the wads (that's what we call 'em. "Wads". Technically, the first map in DooM is a file called "e1m1.wad".) are really quite good, and exhibit an impressive amount of time and effort. Sometimes a frighteningly large amount of time and effort. Others are... Well, you'll see.
Come join us as we rip and tear our way through as many of these as we can, and even some we can't.

So, who the hell are you?
I'm Twiggymouse. I've been a fan of DooM since it came out, basically. This doesn't mean I'm any damn good at it, but I know a thing or two about the game and the franchise as a whole.

Okay. What are you doing, now?
I'm gonna be playing through as many DooM wads as I can.

Ah, gotcha. Any wads in particular?
There's a list of the wads I've got here, which I'll be updating as we go through. I'm also more than happy to try wads that aren't on the list if people wanna suggest stuff.

Awesome. I want in.
Sweet! If you wanna provide commentary, just show up for a stream (I'll try and post in advance) at and we'll try and sort out the skype details. If you wanna provide some footage of you playing a wad, go right ahead. Just make sure to follow the rules.

Yeah. Rules.
  1. It's gotta be a DooM/DooM II wad. DooM likes (Like Amulets and Armor) don't count, nor do DooM themed games (Like DooMRL). Just files that run off DooM or DooM II.
  2. Don't be a dick. If someone doesn't give a wad a fair shake and you want to give it a go, go right ahead, but don't call the poster out on it.
  3. Don't try and be someone else. Just have fun with it, and be you. Not everyone's a laugh riot or a master DooM player.
  4. HAVE FUN.
I also recommend you pick up a copy of Doom Explorer if you don't already have one. It's what I'm using to play most of the wads I've got and also allows for multi-player functionality. (You'll probably also want to pick up a few engines (I recommend either zdoom or zandronum, personally) and a legitimate copy of Doom/Doom II.)

Cool, got it. So, how're your videos gonna work?
As of the second recording session, the rules are set as such:
  1. I will play every wad to three deaths or the end of the first map, whichever comes first.
  2. I'm gonna play on "Hurt Me Plenty" (For the most part), as that's what I'm most comfortable with.
  3. I reserve the right to say "fuck this wad" whenever I want. I'm gonna try and avoid this as much as possible, but there will be shit wads.
Are there any thread rules?
Yeah. Primary rule is that everyone gets to enjoy the game in their own way. I don't wanna hear about how this gameplay wad is better than this one or how anything that affects the way the game is played is blasphemous or some such nonsense. We're here to have fun. In short:
Anything else?
Nope. That's pretty much it. Just have fun and hang out and play some DooM wads. There's some pretty great stuff and some pretty not so great stuff already out there, and really, I'm just hoping to get some good DooMing in.

Anyway, now that all that's out of the way, here's what everyone came here for:
