Here is the proper forum for such a question:

Waves H-Reverb for me. Althought I do love the sound of VRoom and loved the Eventide SP2016.

Also Overlouds Breverb sounds incredible, just the presets that come with the free Cakewalk kinda took me aback at how good they sound.

Another amazing sounding reverb is Subspace the free one by Zynaptic so I imagine the full version of that is incredible.

I just stopped over-thinking reverb...I've been mostly using Valhalla Plate for everything. It sounds great and it's impressively fast easy to tweak to your needs. I don't need anything else.

Eventide Blackhole and UltraReverb and Exponential Audio R2 sound the best to me.

Even though I bet the OP couldn't care less, now he has his post count. :lol:

Depending on usage my "top 5 favorites" are:
2CAudio B2 for really large, dense and creative sound design.
2CAudio Breeze 2 (+ Precedence) for small to medium spaces.
2CAudio Aether for very slow and smooth evolving tails.
Logic´s Chroma Verb, love it and very useful "make it mono" option. Wonderful GUI as well. A bit like Fabfilter Pro-R but better for me. Also great for heavy modulated/automated reverbs as sound design/FX.
Logic´s Space Designer for anything i want to us IR´s for.
But my most used are Breeze 2 and B2 (+Precedence).
If i had a wish i would pay extra for the plate reverb module in on of my favorite synths, the P900 modular synth. By far my favorite plate reverb and it is bound to a synth sadly.
Of course all useless for others maybe, so best advice....just demo some and decide what fits best for you.

I'm in the not over-thinking camp. The stock Reason verb is fine with me. I like "little plate" from soundtoys but I got it free. So many good ones but if I get all caught up in it I'll OCD too much and usually just say screw it, back to basics.

What is the best reverb
There is no single reverb that makes all others obsolete.

Thank goodness.... :)

Any reverb, as long as it doesn't have pineapple on it
