I finally found someone outside the realm of the internet that plays Exile. Isn't that neat? College life is so fun. He lives right across the hall from me, too.

I know how you feel, I found out a friend of mine 'used' to play exile, or maybe he still does. :)

Has it ever struck anyone that "I know how you feel" is perhaps the most presumptuous assertion it is possible to make?

Also, I brought up Spiderweb Software on a PC in the school library around two years ago, and the guy next to me commented that I had a good taste in games. ^_^

Yeah, this one time I was talking to one of my friends, and I suddenly had the urge to mention something in Exile. I was like "You've never played Exile, have you?" (thinking it was way too obscure for anyone to know about it. I don't think I even knew Spiderweb still existed, since the reason I played it was that Escape from the Pit was on the computer my parents bought when I was six. I guess whoever had it before us downloaded the demo or something.) But she had! And it was so exciting to talk about it with someone who (unlike my family) was actually interested in it. =D

I once met someone who had played the demo for Nethergate. But the person wasn't very nice, so I stopped talking to him....

I started liking Avernum 2 and then I went to school one day to discover someone had downloaded it onto the computer. I found out who it was a few days later and I have had someone outside of these boards to discuss Spiderweb games with since.

I am the only one I know who has played any SpidWeb games. I have asked some of the computer nerds at school, but they don't know anything about it.

Last year, I saw a guy from my programming class playing Geneforge. I told my friend about it, but not the guy who was actually playing the game, because I don't know him too well.

I used to play Spiderweb games a lot. Then I got bored. Now I feel that this forum and RWG provide better entertainment than, say, the Avernum series.

My best female friend liked Geneforge, but there is no way in hell she would pay for it. I was still surprised to see that she liked it.

I have yet to find someone that lives close to me that has actually liked playing SW games. I let a couple of my friends try out Avernum 2 last year and they commented that it looks like (obscene profanity not mentioned for CoC reasons) and that it had no music during gameplay.

I personally like just about all the SW games and I'm quite surprised that some people who play SW games actually dislike it so much. Just because a game doesn't have top notch graphics and music doesn't make it bad. It was the gameplay and 30 second learning curve that made them so fun to play over and over.

None of my friends knew about SW before I told them about it, and most of them aren't into RPGs. I'm the only girl that likes computer games, and only one of my friends likes RPGs as much as I do.

Just go to some major lan-party, and you'll see that gamer chicks aren't as rare as many would have you believe. Lots aren't even bad looking, either.

The only non-Spidwebber I've known to play Spiderweb games was a friend I had online years ago. I haven't talked to her in ages. Aside from these boards, I really am alone.

No one I know plays Spiderweb games and it sometimes gets lonely when you really want to tell someone you finally finished Falling Stars with the all the artifacts after several play through. (Unfortunately I still haven't achieved that either.) But no one has any idea what you are talking about.

You could still tell them, and explain that it is a good thing. It might get them interested in SW.

Personally, I don't know of anyone in the real world (that I talk to) that have played a Spiderweb game. They might all be playing them now, but it's unlikely.

And, strange as it may seem, I don't mind. Spiderweb is then my thing - something I have that they don't. Besides, them with their nice musical scores and super-flash-bang graphics don't deserve the to experience the charm of Exile.
