Excuse me? Nethergate is the best, you fool. That should have been included.

How the hell can Blades of Avernum, a game with 1 quality scenario, be better than Blades of Exile, a game with +50 quality scenarios? Simple maths, people. (Oh, but who am I kidding? Jeff's scenarios in three dimentions of nasal bukkake is better than anything that Ian Kinky-thingy guy could do, much less that nuclear nerd or kraut-lover.)

WHY are people voting so much for A3? It's okay, but has such boring and non-tactical combat. IMO it's the only game in the trilogy inferior to its exile equivalent.

Blades of Exile is the best game so far, and Blades of Avernum will be as good once it gets the number of good scenarios that BoE has acquired over seven years of designing.

Galactic Core, just to be different. IMAGE(tongue00.gif) No, just kidding.

BoA will be tons better than BoE, I think, just because of what the scripting makes possible and easier. With BoA, even I could probably design a scenario, which I could never do with BoE.

I truly agree Aran! Im on my way shaping my first BoA scenario, and it feels much easier than BoE!

Nethergate would have been my choice, and as such I abstain from voting in protest.

BoE and BoA aren't fair comparisons. When you pit hundreds of scenarios by dozens of people against the work of one man, of course he comes out second best. So yes, those two are great, but it remains to be seen which of the two will be better.

?Alorael, who otherwise likes Nethergate for being different and A2 for being longer and the best of the Avernum games. A2 probably takes his vote, just because.

I don't know - I feel a lot more comfortable in the BoE editor. BoA's terrain editor is clunky.

Though I picked one from the available options, Nethergate is my favorite at the moment.

Oh, btw, just cause I'm too lazy (and not feeling spamful enough) to start a new topic in BoA: Are the town entrances still firmly linked to terrain types, or is it possible to make any single square on a map a town entrance without setting a special territory type?

BoA is much more difficult to use than BoE, but it also gives far more options. I'd guess that fewer scenarios will be made, but for those who love to use technical tricks, BoA will present endless possiblities and that will result in great scenarios.

?Alorael, who also maintains the hope that the steeper learning curve will cut down on the number of truly awful things produced. We really don't need any more Inn of Tramps.

Blades of Exile is the best so far, until the Windows version of BoA is out.

Aran, if you look at towns in the Avernum games, you'll see that they're multiple terrain spots. Town entrances are set by rectangles.

Exile 2, first one I ever played, still my favorite. I never registered BoE, so I wouldn't know. The only reason I could think to register it would be to make scenarios and play others, but I can't script so I decided not to.
