Mac Gargan doesn't count. We're talking about the Venom that uh... DOESN'T fail miserably.

Norman Osborn/Green Goblin is the archenemy of Spider-Man because out of all of the Spider-Man villains, none of them have caused as much agony to Spider-Man than Norman Osborn. Venom was mostly flash but very little substance whereas with Norman, Marvel has made more of an effort to intertwine the flash with the substance.  Doctor Octopus (while my personal favorite Spider-Man rogue) has never excelled to the level of impacting Spider-Man's life like Norman routinely has. 
 
There's a reason why there's always another goblin motif inspired by Norman's original Green Goblin blueprint, there's a reason why Norman is more often than not the one behind Spider-Man's current woes and that reason has to do with him being Spider-Man's archenemy. Personally, I think Norman Osborn is very overrated but apparently Marvel thinks very highly of Norman's gravitas as a villain.

Venom when he was cooler, when he knew everything about Spider-Man's life that no one else did and could just ruin it all for him, back when he was a real threat.

Green goblin is my favorite and he is kinda like marvel's joker but Venom his spider-man's evil twin with his memories and abilities. Also venom is eddie brock who was a rival to peter at the daily bugle as well. Goimg back to green goblin is that he was the father of the peter's best friend plus green goblin cursed other people to take his legacy including harry the son. Then he he killed gwen and other crap.  Emotionally and tragicly with even attacking peter's family the most is where the green goblin is the nemesis there strongly. With Venom he is the one that corrupts spiderman within as his inner demons in which makes him become bad and then abuses what he stood for and sins against his surrondings which happens to go on the green goblins same level of villiany just about anyway. Lets not forget that he and green goblin spawned other twins of them but the worst of the family tree was carnage from venom's side. Venom is like a spider like spiderman but his alien and more  frighting than gobby. What does a goblin have with a spider anyway. Well because than that makes it totally opposite thou. Ok fine but than you have venom which makes more sense as well. Than it is hard to tell because these two tied the score.

Green Goblin easily. Doc Ock is okay, but Green Goblin cuts very deep. Venom is kinda of lame, when you actually break down what he is.

I agree that Green Goblin was his best arch enemy by far.

I think Venom would be his Arch Enemy seeing how Eddie thinks Spider-Man/Parker ruin his life.

Venom, however green goblin is arguable but venom is basically Spider-Man's dark reflection, he knows all of spideys secrets and let's face it, if goblin didn't know about venoms weaknesses, then venom would curbstomp him, however goblin has done more damage, but if venom appeared as much as green goblin then would it still be that way?

Norman Osborn/ Green Goblin is his track recorded speaks for itself, Eddie Brock/Venom is his second. It time they clash is more intense and violent, than the last. But I also think Morlun has a lot of potential.
