Avernum 4 and Geneforge 4 didn't come out in the same year, unless you are talking about the PC version of the former and the Mac version of the latter. Regardless. And it's "Subterra".

But most egregiously, you've left off Blades entirely. Thank goodness you are taking a rest from making these.

Homeland? I looked at Spidweb's list of games and I didn't find Homeland. Did they get rid of it or did they not make it at all?

Spiderweb didn't make Homeland. They didn't make Subterra, Ocean Bound, Lost Souls, and that other one either. Jeff just distributed them.

Why in the world did 5 people say A2 could have been improved? :confused:

That is what I meant by "other".

I got bored with A2 after teleporting into the Tower of Magi. I've played Avernum 1 and 3 though.

Either they are oldbies who want to complain that Exile II was better, or people are finally realizing how overrated that game is.

Best overall: Geneforge 2.

You lose.

Eh, Geneforge 1. Worth the title just because it had a usable Geneforge. And the Unused Geneforge-Destroyed Geneforge-Obeyer ending fit Death perfectly.

Every Spiderweb game could have been improved. A4 is the one that needs it the most, though.

Well, that and the non-Subterra third-party games, but they're mostly lost causes. Lost Souls at least had potential.

—Alorael, who doesn't think Blades even belongs in polls like this. Scenario editors and playing others' scenarios is too different from one man's game efforts. (By that logic Subterra shouldn't be there either, but you can't have everything.)

Blades of Exile is by far the best SpiderWeb Game ever. There are a ton of good scenarios for it.

Be that as it may, that doesn't necessarily make it the best SW game. BoA has more potential. It just hasn't been around as long, and I'd imagine it's harder to design for, so there aren't as many scenarios for it.

I think you meant "meant" there.

—Alorael, who means well. He doesn't mean to be mean, but you lose meaning when you demean a language.

This post is not necessary. It is not unique among your posts in that respect.

You should not continue posting.

The internet certainly would be a quieter place if everyone guilty of adding useless drivel suddenly ceased to post.

Alorael is above coolness. Get with the times Nem!

I for one think Nethergate has a slight edge over Av2. That said, I couldn't think of anything to improve in the latter, but plenty in the former...

P.S. Blades is Jeff's greatest idea EVER.

How nice. You are very nice. :P

Well anyway, Blades really is one of the best and I should have added that.
Besides, in some way it isn't a "game" because it is made up of scenarios.
But that is just my opinion.
