Talk about your experiences with the Myst
I remember the first time I saw this game. One of my uncles was having a wedding and he showed off his brand-new Windows 3.1 machine. He loaded up the Myst
disc and my cousins and I were blown away by the (at the time) amazing graphics and sound. We played it for hours and had a blast at the wedding. I played it like crazy every time my folks drove us back over to his house. Then the game exploded with popularity and my elementary school had it on their computers!
Of course, they had time limits, but it was still fun to play. Finally, in Christmas of 1995, we got ourselves a Windows 95 machine and I finally got Myst
on my own. I played the hell out of it.
In late 1997, Riven
came out and I bought it as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, I was never able to finish it; the game kept crashing on the third disc.
Years passed and I grew out of video games late into high school. (I stopped during the time of the GameCube era; I had to save up on money for more important things in life.) Then YouTube came around and I was feeling nostalgic for checking out that cool game again that fascinated me during my childhood, so I watched various Let's Plays of each game in the series.
After seeing realMYST,
I can't stand to look at the original Myst
The graphics for the original game have aged pretty badly in my eyes, yet Riven
still holds up pretty well. I was wondering why there wasn't an updated remake of that game, so I searched for it and came upon the blog, where I was lurking--and occasionally commenting--for the past few years.
So, what's your story?
