Nightmare Mode's Philtron takes a look at Myst's mysterious introduction:
"All you know at the start of Myst is that there’s a book, inside the book there’s a moving image of an island, and when you click on the image you transport to that island. So, the book is magic? Who knows, let’s not dwell on it. The book’s gone. You’re on an island now. Maybe the island knows what’s going on? It doesn’t. It’s an island; all it knows is the touch of the sea and the gaze of the sun. Hahaha, seriously though, what the hell is going on?"
