I guess its the type of game where you are all alone mostly.
Which one should I start with?
The first one -- Myst or RealMyst.
The advantage of playing the games in order is so you know the characters and the story.
Also it's the shortest.Myst
-- introduces Atrus, Sirrus, and AchenarRealMyst
-- same as Myst only using 1st person 3D instead of snapshot style point-and-click. Has the extra "Rime Age" on the end.Riven
-- introduces Gehn and CatherineMyst III
(developed by Presto, makers of the Journeyman Project games) --- introduces Saavedro Myst IV
(developed by Ubusoft) -- introduces Yeesha as a child, reappearance of Sirrus and AchenarUru
-- option of 1st or 3rd person 3D, Yeesha as an adultMyst V
-- more like Uru 2 than the earlier Myst games. 1st person 3D only
You are playing the same unnamed person in Myst, Riven, Myst III, and Myst IV in the early 1800's according to the Myst series wikihttp://dni.wikia.com/wiki/The_Stranger
Uru and Myst V take place many years later in present day, at the time the games were published.
