I finally finished Myst IV about twenty minutes ago. Those of you who have played it will no doubt be able to sympathize with this comic from Penny Arcade. On more than one occasion–especially during the mangree puzzle–I was tempted to do the same myself. It was not so much the action of the game that I loved so much but the sheer beauty of it. Very rarely has a game ever made me feel like I was actually experiencing the action. Doom 3 came very close; indeed, close enough to give me a few nightmares. Heh. And, of course, since I beat it, I think it’s safe to say that I can feel a little bit more secure about my intellectual prowess. Anyway, if you haven’t picked it up and you like these kind of games, do so. It’s well worth it.
