What was your favorite musical piece used at the beginning of any Spiderweb game ever made?!?

My favorite is Geneforge. :D

Mine is definitely Avernum 2.

"Eye in the Sky" would be a suitable theme for Geneforge...not like Jeff has that kind of money, however.

Most people like Avernum II's music because they are so white. I personally don't think it makes sense to have an electric guitar in a fantasy setting.

Geneforge II, in fact, has the best music.

If you would have watched the link, you would have found that there was plenty of "anything else" included.

I may start dancing when I hear Avernum 2's intro, but we all know what Tully does when he hears Geneforge 2.

A2 and G1.

G2 might have made Dikiyoba's list, but not now. Thanks a lot, Andraste.

Hmm. Let's see. . . The Geneforge 4 music was good, as was G3. . . We'll say G4, but it's close with A2.

I like A2's intro, but Nethergate wins.

—Alorael, who would like a full-length piece based on that. With bagpipes. Seriously.

The Bach Fugue in E1! It would win if only midi were not unilaterally awful when compared to normal music.

As it is, I like Nethergate's and A2's best.

The only opening music I didn't like was that of GF2. Too repetitive...

I like a lot of them actually, so I'll state which ones I don't like:

GF1, 3, 4 and Avernum 3, BoA and Avernum 4.

Of the ones I do like, I think Nethergate is pretty close to the winner, followed closely by Avernum 1 and 2, and after that GF2. I like the stuff that's slightly depressing (Avernum 1 and 2), but what I really like is the marching troops sort of sound of Nethergate. It's basically the drums that does it.

Mind you, I always felt that the intro music for Avernum 2 does not match the intro picture.

Nethergate is the best, but Exile 3 is good too. I think the one that best suits the game is Avernum 1.

Considering there is only one game's intro music I can ever remember at any point in time, no matter how long ago I played it, that game wins by default.

Nethergate for the win!

As for A2, I remember I didn't like the intro, at all. Geneforge IV was good as well, as I can remember it in a positive light... but that's probably because I played it so much.

How's the Avernum 5 music?

I love Nethergate music, personally.

But maybe Avernum 5's will blow me away. Too bad I don't have a Mac...

All the Avernums and G3. I actually like A1 best.

With that, I say A4, G2, G3, and G4 are good, but Nethergate still holds prize. That did jog my memory a bit though, so thanks.

German bagpipes are far superior to Scottish ones.
