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!
