I was wondering how many people who play Spiderweb and similar games are map completionists. 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?
