DOOM II: Hell on Earth

(WARNING: I don't know anything about wads and how they work, so prepare for a question you may find very stupid.)
If I was to play Doom for the wads, should I get Doom 1 or 2, or will wads work with both?

Doom 2 has a bit more wads/mods than Doom, but if you get Doom 2 then you can't play the Doom 1 wads. (Unless you know how to tweak wads so they can run on the current game you have) Also, most wads use a sourceport so you should get something like Zdoom, Gzdoom, or zandronum.

Doom 2 seems to be the one you'll want if you had to choose. Doomseeker is a great place to find all sorts of wads that change from day to day. So you could install that first. Find what wads are on what servers and which version of doom it requires. You can even play test and give wad and mapmakers feedback on the right days.

DOOM II: Hell on Earth has wider PWAD (or patch WAD) support, 99.99% of downloaded WAD's are PWAD's so get DOOM II.

Get both, but Doom 1 is far better than doom 2

DOOM 1 got better music and levels design.
DOOM 1 got 4 episodes ( episode = collection of levels usually consists of eight levels, plus one secret level. ) u can chose ur favorite one before starting a game.
So in DOOM if I want to play Inferno ( Episode 3 ) i can pick it on the menu and dont need to do episode 1 and episode 2 each time i want to play the episode 3.

in DOOM 2 u cant pick ur episode before starting a game, u must do the 32 lvls from the beginning all the times.

They're both goods, but I think DOOM 1 is way better than DOOM 2.

DOOM 2 got more custom WADS ( In simple ways, DOOM 2 got more custom maps than DOOM 1 ) ( a good point for doom 2... if u like custom maps. ) ****

I hope u understand me, my grammar isnt so good lol.

**** custom WADS can also change music, sound and skin from the game.

(Ppl, If I sayd mistakes, correct me. )

Im not a very custom wads lover so I cant really help u if u want to take custom WADS but I found Freedoom ( ) not so bad.

But which one would I get if I wanted to play Alien TC?

"The original version of the mod ( Alien TC ) was for Doom v1.666, with Ultimate Doom compatibility added later. Jason Mezzacca eventually created a version for use with Doom II. In addition to the replacement maps, textures, and sounds"

looks like ALIEN TC works on both Doom.

Wait a sec... v1.666? D=
florianch Jul 9, 2014 @ 10:19pm 
Forget the v 1.666 lol. Its work on DOOM 1 (ultimate)
florianch Jul 9, 2014 @ 10:20pm

If you only want to play pwads then you can just download FreeDoom instead of buying. You'd get different monsters, textures and weapons, but nearly all pwads work ok. Brutal Doom works too, but the animations don't match (cause the mobs in FreeDoom are different than in the original).
