Personally I've never played through any of the 'Myst' games, I've only sampled the occasional demo years ago plus I've only watched gameplay videos too..

But for some reason this 'point n click' series has always fascinated me due to the fact that all the 'Myst' titles including 'Riven' (the sequel to Myst) look absolutely stunning. The puzzles look mindbending and the story seems interesting also, especially due to those wonderful looking live action cut scenes.

I would love to see these games re released.. But, unlike most, I think the 'Myst' games would appeal more to this generation if released as first person titles..

Imagine being left alone to discover those magical islands whilst haunting music plays within the background setting the perfect ambiance, creating the ultimate relaxing gaming experience..

Perhaps developed by the individuals who created 'Dear Esther'.

Yes, with lots of shooting. And multiplayer.

Yeah, that would be cool. The mix of first person and puzzle solving is great. After loving portal, I would definitely enjoy a Myst first person game. I wish more games would make first person games without being a shooter, because I like the realistic view, but Im getting tired of the usual shooting and killing.

It sounds as though you would really enjoy "Mirrors Edge".. It's a great title, plus you can play through the campaign without firing a single shot, just like ''Dishonored''

Yeah, it looks fun to play. I can never seem to find a copy though, but if I do I'll get it.

A slow and difficult first person puzzle game without shooting enemy A.I. Hmmm, it sounds very nice, but I wouldn't get my hopes up. Maybe as an indie title... That or we need some kind of David Cage of puzzle games...

Myst IS a First Person tile. WTF are you talking about?

Agreed. Myst would be better with a shot gun, sniper rifle and ATV. Like most games actually.

I'd like to see a full living breathing Myst, possibly with optional Kinect controls.

No, but Bioshock Infinite should be re-released as a pnc adventure.

Yeah, I have no idea what this conversation is about. I don't know if they want Myst to have a controllable camera in the sense of not screen-by-screen advancement, or something else.
