[Old] Was Myst a good or shitty game? (22)

I remember playing Myst when I was pretty young. I liked the graphics and the storyline a lot, even though I was too young to figure out the puzzles without help.

To the point, was Myst a good game for its time?

I thought the puzzles were tough, but fun. The story was pritty good espicly the whole "two brothers stuck in books and which ether you let out will still give you a bad ending". The whole problem was ther was no one there........I was so alone.

When you were "pretty young?"

Isn't Myst only two or three years old? o.O;

(-_-;) ...

Myst was the first big CD-ROM game. Does 1993 sound like two or three years ago? I suppose you could say it's a testament to the longevity of its graphics and interface.

I liked the puzzles, but never got into the story. As a game of its time, it was a good point and click adventure, if a bit dry. The first person perspective was very immersive. I must be grateful to it for influencing the excellent Zork: Grand Inquisitor.

I enjoyed the game quite a lot. I found the puzzles sometimes infuriating, sometimes mildly enjoyable. But what I love most is the whole Myst universe.

Interesting games, I would love to get into them and really see what they're like but don't have the time.

A friend of mine really likes Myst. However, I only played the part for the Playstation. I like the graphics, but its a little bit too boring.

I remember playing that game when I was a kid. That and the spaceship game that came with that Mac screensaver package were the first PC games I ever played.

The puzzles were really too hard for me then though, so I got bored of it pretty quick.

This thread, like Myst, is timeless.

>>5-sama is right. The Myst Universe is fucking amazing and I actually would love to see a Myst movie come out sometime.

The Myst world was quite lacking in NPCs, where the hell is everybody? Myst 2 riven was the worst Myst I ever played

No NPCs is kinda the point, you're exploring this island that you got whisked to after falling into the Star Fissure. Everyone else is trapped in another Age or not accessible from Myst or any of the other books.

I remember Myst III was the first Myst I played.Installing the game itself was an adventure in itself as it required several discs to install and at that age I had never encountered such a thing. I didn't get that far in the game itself, but the puzzles I solved did give me a bit of satisfaction at the time.

I played the original when it came out. It was commercially a huge deal, in all the stores, people were even discussing it which was almost unheard of for a PC game. It had an interesting idea behind it. But it wasn't fun or really even more than a curiosity. My memory of it is there, but fuzzy.

A game having metaphysical explanations for why there are no NPCs was relatively novel at the time. People were attracted to this story aspect over than the gameplay. Almost a visual translation of earlier 1980s text adventures.

I feel that young people today would find it too boring.

Myst was all about nosing around in somebody else's house while they're not home.

I don't think the explanations are necessarily metaphysical, everyone else is just not on Myst Island or in any of the other ages you visit.

This desu
