zippdementia I'm best known for my extensive work in the fields of this and that. I tend to be better at that, though I have more fun with this.

I'm an odd jobber with an even personality who isn't afraid to roll with the punches but prefers to dodge them when able.

Title: ... seriously?

Myst doesn't have a positive review to its name on this site? That's... not right. Myst is one of the most original games of all time. Aside from shaping the adventure genre for years to come, it also was the first major game to feature mostly ambient music integrated with the natural sounds of the environment, a style that would pave the way for adventure gaming soundtracks. Not to mention the fact that it told a story that you come into the middle of and never really find out the whole of... again, a heavy influence on later adventure works.

And you know what... it may look a little dated today... but it still works. I'm gonna write a review. I'm gonna do it.

I really should re-install Myst. I'm getting kinda tired of the screensaver I have right now. [/burn]

I tried to approach that game like I would a usual adventure game, and I got absolutely nowhere. The amount of time, concentration and patience you need is just overwhelming. I've noticed that most gamers don't like Myst, but many non-gamers seem to.

From what I remember it was also very, very dull.

I remember playing Myst when it was new. Castlevania: Bloodlines was better.
