    Might and Magic 6, or 7. Or 3, or 4+5.

    Legend of Grimrock 2 also deserves an honourable mention. This series has the best puzzles in the genre. Blame Portal for positive influence.

    EDIT: I just realized I should not venture an opinion since I haven't played Grimoire.

    But if those are the only two options, then Grimoire. It's essentially Wizardry 7 but with improvements... and Cleave is actually a decent writer.

    I summon you aweigh !

    Also Dramart Phantasy Star 1 is not a blobber, it is an excellent classical JRPG. It uses blobber style dungeon navigation but pretty much all other elements of the genre are missing.

    Ok, I thought it was a blobber because of the first person view in dungeons. Then the OP must change the question to which one is less shit.

    The greatest one of all time is Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord.

    The "best" one is probably Wiz 8 if you install WizFast.

    Heh, what an insidious poll.

    Anyways, the best blobber of all time is Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord.
