Comment Myst (Score 1) 1557

I played a lot of games on the good old c64 and the Amiga. Must say that those games had a lot of magic, due to lack of detail.

Probably the Myst series has made me feel different, they still can now. It's such a wonderful experience to walk in surrealistic worlds which do not exist. The concept of Myst, later Riven en Excile just made me feel part of the game, non-violent and puzzling challanges, it has been nice being part of these worlds. These games are IMHO unique and exceptional, being part of the Myst worlds is like going on a distant vacation, but now to worlds which can never exist.

As I really adore tropical holidays, farmost the jungle-island in Excile was absolutely the place to be. Even in an ordinairy northern European country, I could feel the sun shine, like it does in South-East Asia!
