A little poem that popped into my head, All Hail Jeff Vogel

There is a man with Jeff Vogel for name,
His productions the Geneforge and Avernum games,
Even with Leopard causing trouble,
As soon as hears, hes on the double,
He will be known for awesome fame.

Your incompidence is your own fault
Before you complain, ask yourself, does anyone care? The answer, of course is No.
My life for Auir!

Aw... I thought you meant this little ditty, or perhaps the Christmas song I can't seem to locate.

You fail for mentioning GF before Avernum and leaving Exile out completely. :P

He truly fails for neglecting to mention the greatest game of all.

Yep, that was pretty Iffy, all right.

Well, let's see. The actual title of the poem, rather than the thread, is "The Night Before Christmas in Exile." The title of the thread is "The Avernite before Christmas." The content is all centered around Avernum 4, which was criticized for recycling the Geneforge boat graphics, thus the GF reference. It all made a little more sense back when it was fresh.

Nonetheless, I contend that technically both Exile and Avernum are clearly referenced. I have no argument to assuage the Nethergateless quality of the prose I offered. All apologies to Tyranicus, who knows darn well I am plenty fond of Nethergate despite the glaring omission. However, I have to state that the greatest and most evil game of all time in my experience, is the more-addictive-than-crack Civilization III.

* Neither ducks nor runs, but deletes Civ III from his hard drive for the umpteenth time, so he can get something done today. *

I dunno. I had to hack up my Heroes of Might and Magic III CD with a chef's knife.

This may be the funniest thing I've ever seen Iffy post. Congrats, Iffy. :P

Was it because of the content, or am I just pathetic?
