Lost is no longer just a show. Lost is a multimedia mythology. So while the television series finally ends this weekend, the impact on popular culture – the island's hold on collective imagination – will live on for much, much longer.
Just look to videogames for proof. Even though Lost has only been around since late 2004, and even though a single game can take that many years or more to develop, the connection between these two geek hobbies is already surprisingly strong.
