If Myst came out today, would anyone buy it?

It seems like most games today are FPS or button mashers with clean cut paths for the player to follow. I think Myst would tank because there wouldn't be a little arrow to show you where to go 24/7.

I was just thinking about Myst yesterday, actually


As cool as it was when it came out, the answer of course is NO.

I think kids are too fucking stupid for Myst now. That, and Ghen would probably make it rated M for sure today.

I had a love hate relationship with Myst back in the day....loved the overall concept, but I hate maddening puzzles that impede progress. Hell, I almost raged at some of the puzzles in Skyrim and most of those were pretty simple. To answer your question, no..not even with hi-res graphics. That was a game from a different era..

I wouldn't consider portal and myst to be the same type of puzzles.

the puzzles in rizen were fucking ridiculous. you were also bombarded with them so much so to the point where all you wanted to do was explore, but no, every fucking screen had a god damned puzzle.

i loved myst back in the day, would spend hours wandering around doing NOTHING but as it is it wouldn't sell for shit today.

i was watching a letsplay of the 7th guest the other uh...4am? anyway, the point was that the entire time watching it i'm sitting there thinking how it was nothing but simple puzzles and no one would really have any interest in it today.

edit: i was also thinking the other day wtf ever happened to uterus

Hell to the fucking NO, that game sucked donkey balls and was the most boring thing in all of the computer gaming universe.

Only s "enjoyed" that game the same way that sadomasochists enjoy inserting razor blades into their own asshole
