Why MYST is the Greatest Adventure Game Series of All Time

WC writes: Today, the adventure genre of gaming is all but ignored by the vast majority of gamers. Websites like this are dominated by articles about first person shooters, World of Warcraft, Halo and the like. Of course, that makes perfect sense given that those types of games are what keep the gaming industry thriving. But for me, adventure games are the best possible rebuttal to critics who insist video games cannot be art. And nothing exemplifies the adventure genre better than the Myst series. Roger Ebert has become particularly notorious among gamers for his repeated assertion that video games will never be an art form. I doubt your average shoot’ em up would persuade him otherwise. But if he were to play Myst, he might begin to reconsider. (3DS, Myst, Myst III: Exile, Myst IV: Revelation, Myst V: End of Ages, Nintendo DS, PC, PS2, PSP, Riven, Uru: Ages Beyond Myst, Xbox)

One of the first games I ever played! I didn't really understand what was going on at the time, but the graphics were gorgeous and I loved exploring the world so that kept younger-me happy. :D
