While I'm afraid that I missed Armyless' reference, I think that the more Myst the better. It is a fantastic game which truly revolutionized a stagnating gaming genre. I have fond memories of the adventure game boom after Myst.

Regardless of what you think of the game, you can't deny its popularity and timelessness. I think the only other game which has sold more copies is The Sims. That's nothing to sneeze at.

I'm not really too sure how you can consider the DS to be the worst console ever (are you talking just handhelds, or actual consoles? Damn, when the hell did handheld video game players get called consoles?), but you can't deny the marketing power of the most popular video game player being able to now play the second most widely purchased/loved game in the world.
