Just bought:

1. Nethergate: Res,
2. and the $15 promotional CD for Blades of Avernum.
3. Exile: Escape from the Pit, sometime in the 1990's.

Until some recent google searching for "Ultima-like RPG's", I had no idea that all this game development was going on.

Hmm, these are the only ones I bought - all four. Maybe I didn't give the others a fair enough chance. The storylines just were not compelling enough to make up for the graphics. Am I the only one that thinks the Geneforge storylines are the best?

I think the avernum series has a very good storyline. At least the first 3 parts. In fact, its the storyline that got me interested in it initially.

Both storylines are very good. They both have their low points, and their high points, but they're both original and enjoyable. I enjoyed both of the series.

I like the story itself in Geneforge 1 and the way the story unfolds and is treated in Geneforge 4 (even though it's not the best actual story).

Exile/Avernum 2 is the best of every spidweb game, I think, in the story sense. Exile/Avernum 1 and 3 both have better *premises* though.

Got A1-4 and G1-3 as well as BoA from my brother.

All of which were PC versions, for those wondering.

I feel a little annoyed at myself for spending the money on the Geneforge games...if it weren't for Iffy, I'd not have done it, because I'm not exactly fond of them.

Oh well. Jeff needs all the money he can get if he is to keep making these games, after all.

EDIT: Oh, and I did recently purchase Nethergate: Resurrection as well...PC, of course.

Nethergate
Avernum 1,3 & 4
Geneforge 1,2,3

That's ten already... oh dear

Edit: PS: I think they were all for Mac but I could be wrong.

Well I've been wanting a Nethergate Res CD and Hintbook and since I have sheepshaver running acceptably I broke down and ordered the Exile Trilogy w/hintbooks, BoE on CD (for my collection), and a Nethergate Res hintbook and disk.

Other than things like Galactic Core I think I own them all now.......What can I say, the guy makes fun games. I like fun games.

The Geneforge 4 storyline seems slick and unique from what I've seen in the Demo. It's not anything like an Ultima, that's for sure.

I also like the way Nethergate: Res. has been unfolding as I've been playing, and don't think there are enough games that mesh fantasy with historical fact. I wasn't sure how I'd like the Roman/Celt thing at first, being a bit off the beaten Fantasy path, but I'm a big fan now. I'd love to see a Nethergate 2 ... if the story allows for that (since I haven't finished it yet I can't say).

Bought so far (all for Windows):
BoE
Exile Trilogy
A1 & A2
G1 (twice, though I'm not quite sure how), G2 & G3

Planning to buy A3, A4, BoA, & G4 eventually

Also, I would've liked to at least tried Galactic Core, since I've seen similar games, but I don't have either a Mac computer or a Mac emulator.

Note: Spoilers follow

I can see a sequel, but my idea would involve a modern times expedition team--one from Britain, the other from Italy, to represent the two sides--journeying through a portal that appears to the world the faeries and other magical creatures all journeyed to through the Nethergate...and there could be this neat story of how things develop there, maybe some time travel elements if Jeff wants to toss in the fact that the things that went through were spread over the timeline of that world due to the destabilization of the Nethergate...competing elements and sides...say, one side when they go through loses all of their modern equipment due to something in the story(in this case, firearms and the like are lost, maybe due to a variation on the Crones) and has to use swords, bows, and learns magic, while the other side gets to keep their modern equipment and doesn't learn magic(but can still, say, use magical items found) and projects their power that way...

I don't know...it's more of a mish-mash of ideas than a solid game idea, but it might work neatly, if developed.

Few things I thought of based on your post -

1. I can't help but think of a Stargate reference from your screen name. :)

2. Ultima: Worlds of Adventure (time travel included, portals, technology, the works)

Yes, the name is based on a Stargate character...it's also a pretty old name I don't use anywhere else but I don't feel like changing it to the current name I do use.

As for possible Ultima references...purely unintended, as I never played the Ultima games.
