Why not buy GF1 and GF2 together if you already own GF3. That way you've got the whole Geneforge colection :)

G1 is marginally the best in my opinion, but I like all 3. I still think you should get G1 next, since then you'll get an idea where it all came from. Be warned that the engine is a fair bit simpler than in G3 -- for instance, no trapdoors -- and there are no Drakons, Gazers, or Rotghroths. But the story just works better than in either sequel.

Well, if you haven't got it by now, it's out. It's Avernum 4 that the Windows players are waiting for now.

GF1 is by far the best story line out of the three. It would've been better if you would've gotten GF1 first, since I really enjoyed the mystery around it and finding out bit by bit. GF2 was alright, but GF1 was def better.

The story of GF1 was the best of them, but the gameplay features are a bit lacking when compared to 2 and 3.

GF1 is the best in my opinion, not really knowing what's going on and learning about the Canisters and the Geneforge and all. Had an ex-girlfriend that always kicked me each time I skipped ahead in a book or read a sequal before I read the first book. I quickly learnt the same went for games. Hence I always play the first game first, now out of habit more than fear of getting kicked.

I think I agree with others here: I liked GF1 best. It was mysterious and interesting. GF2 kind of suffers from A4 syndrome: you know most of what's going on from very early in the game and just have to complete tasks from then on.

Not that I didn't like GF2 or A4, really, but just that GF1 was better.

Thanks for all the votes and the replies. Now I know what I have to buy...

And the winners is... Geneforge... 2!
I choice that for a very simple reason: buying GF3,2,1 seems to be much better than 3,1,2.
Sorry, I have choiced before the poll close, but I finish GF3 today. Horewer, keep voting the first question, if you want.

Not yet, and especially not if you've already purchased GF3.

Well, the Exile trilogy package did (still does, actually) offer a small discount for each game you'd already registered.
