Journeyman Project III - Legacy of Time - was my favourite of the series and is one of the best loved games in my collection smile

I'm not very good with "gadget operating" though so the first two Journeyman games were rather a struggle lol

I like this thread because it shows how different we all are. I have bailed on a few games, but I loved all the MYST games and still think that URU is the best game ever made. I'm not knocking any of the above-stated opinions. I just like the idea that gamers are a really diverse bunch.


If all the people were heroes, there would be no one to watch the parades.

I like them too. Even when the puzzles are too much for me, I enjoy exploring the imaginative environments in the Myst games.

I wish Cyan had made another single-player game before releasing Uru. Not many Myst fans had fast enough Internet for the online version in 2003. 2003 was too early for an online game like Uru, and it didn't really have a chance.

This method is also very usable for older games that display in a stretched-out format on widescreen monitors.

I've used that to prevent games from being horizontally stretched. But unfortunately it doesn't work to reduce motion sickness. Maybe because the black bars at the sides on a widescreen are the same distance from your eyes as the rest of the screen (as opposed to seeing around the sides of a 4:3 screen) or maybe there is something about new LCD screens themselves.

I do remember feeling bad not being able to finish Myst and Riven. Myst was just too hard for me and in the process of playing Riven I discovered that I really was more of a fan of third person games.


It's nice to be important but it is much more important to be nice.

I never used to abandon a game for any reason. Decades ago, there weren't that many good ones for adventure players, so if you bailed, what then? These days, I am more prone to give up on a game if it turns out to be too "action" oriented but I didn't know this before buying it. Sometimes, you don't hear about that in players' comments because they don't mind or else they enjoy the stress. I can't take all that jumping and timed stuff and shooting.

So, for the first 25 years of gaming, I never quit a game until I'd finished it.
In the last five years, I have bailed on at least one game per year.
