No-one would have believed in the early part of the 21st century that Martian affairs were being watched from the timeless worlds of space. No one could have dreamed that we were being scrutinized, as someone with a microscope studies creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of that wet stuff from the poles. Few Martians even considered the possibility of life on other planets and yet, across the gulf of space, minds immeasurably superior to ours regarded this Mars with envious eyes, and slowly and surely, they drew their plans against us.

What I find sad is that so many people raving about Myst/Riven forget the classics that did "multimedia" gaming right - Under a Killing Moon, Pandora Directive, Tex Murphy: Overseer. In my opinion these remain the pinnacle of that era's gaming.

Even better when AFTER doing all that, the game crashes at the first save and then never works again.... I am looking at you Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare. After getting if for Christmas I have still never successfully played the damn game :/

I bought the disk copy to save space on my limited HDD... I feel like an idiot now!
