The Doom community has been a fountain of creativity for 25 years, and trying to pick out the best work from the impressive pool of talent is always difficult. Dare we say it, the various generations of Cacoward judges may have even gotten a few things wrong from time to time. We should know, you tell us so every year!
This list aims to both rectify the cases where history proved us wrong, and to highlight the best releases that were never quite able to make runner-up. It covers all past Cacoward years as well as the first 10 Years of Doom. Anything on this list can be considered to have an honorary Cacoward or honorable mention, we’ll leave it to you to decide which.
