Myst Is 20 Years Old Today. Go Turn a Crank To Celebrate.

Kotaku - Twenty years ago, if you were getting a computer, you were getting one with a newfangled CD-ROM drive. And you were getting a game to justify it. That game was probably Myst. And if that wasn't the case for you, it was for your mom or grandfather or cousin. Like few games before or since, Myst was ubiquitous. (Myst, PC)

Myst holds a special place for me. I remember playing it as a kid and finding it beyond fascinating. I'd sit at the computer and lose myself in the world. It was a one of a kind experience that I won't forget anytime soon.

great game, but it was upsetting to me at the time when i found out that you can actually beat that game in less than a minute.

Totally agree. Super special game. This is the one the one that got me hooked for life.

I recently played the free-roaming remake of the game, actually. The art definitely doesn't hold up to the picturesque original, being that it was essentially an interactive picture-book, but I still think I prefer it.
I honestly feel everyone should try the series. The games certainly hold a special place for me.
Certainly not going to entertain everyone though.

This is what Bioshock Infinite would be like if it was made back then.

Wow great game brings me to my first PC when I was 16.

The first game that absolutely immersed me.

I'll never forget the feeling of being thrown into the then gorgeous world, having no idea what the game was about, or what I was supposed to do.

The sense of accomplishment having figured something out was exhilarating, like nothing I had experienced before.

Solidifying me, gamer for life. <3
