I was thinking about this the other day, because I'm many hours into my Avadon 3 playthrough and still not finished with the game. It's taken me quite a long time to finish pretty much all the Spiderweb games. I almost obsessively uncover every piece of map I possibly can, going all the way back to my playthroughs of Exile 3 in the 90s. I could finish the games a lot quicker without doing this. And it's tempting because I want to get through the story quicker, but I feel much more satisfied when I've taken the time to uncover everything... even if I had to battle zillions of bats/rats/chittrachs/etc and even caught myself cursing in some of those Avernum caves when I discovered a trap door leading to yet another sublevel... I went and uncovered every drop. And then when I got the Orb of Thraalni, go back everywhere to make sure there's no little nib that I've missed... and so forth.
Does anyone else play these games this way?

Avernum 4 where there no light sources had lower levels with black bodies on blackish floors. Very hard to see until you hit them.

nope especially in Avadons where some places inside areas get unlocked at certain time and in Avernums bit same except there required spells restrict access.

Ive always played that way. The good news is that I get the maximum playtime out of the games that I like. The bad news is it's detrimental for my hopes of ever widdling down my backlog of games.
