Yeah Myst is boring. Not only there aren't any characters, there isn't even a hope of finding any characters... Just go through ruins of lost civilizations. Gets real boring real fast.

It was primarily acclaimed for its visuals and came out at a time when adventure was a popular genre. Since then it became a classic and one of those "u r not a true adventure fan if you don't luv Myst" type of games. Half the people that claim to love it are just going along with the crowd. Like Final Fantasy 7 for example.

I don't understand it I didn't like FF7 as much as I enjoyed (most) of the others. Why's it so hyped!?

Echomote: For the reasons I said. I think it was the first FinalFantasy with nice-ish FMVideos, dark-ish story, and a love tragedy. So in a way, it was the first big one. Afterwards, thousands of fans sucked in others with their "every true FF fan loves this game" mentality. I think FF8 is far more sophisticated and superior, but most "true fans" will tell you that it's a piece of shit.

Gabandre: Never really finished Myst, so I can't say it's bad from start to finish. I just couldn't get into it because it had no characters. I would have prefered if it was more along the lines of "the Dig." Enigmatic, but with character interaction.

Another good game:

Longest Journey

By Prince of Persia, you're probably talking about Prince of Persia 3D. Best game in the series.

Yeah, well never played FF VII but I heard from real fans that's not that good. My fav FF is FF IX It's really cute.

Don't know about Myst but I have it since early this year and never felt like playing it more than 5 minutes, maybe it's boring, maybe it's not. I will not be sure until I damn play it.

But well, on topic: Final Fantasy IX, LBA2, Day of The Tentacle, Dividead, SimCity 3000, almost any Leisure Suit Larry game, Need For Speed III: Hot Pursuit and lots of other games I don't want to remember right now

I personally admit not to be much of a RPG guy aside for a specific titles, and I'm not that sure if I'd like FFVII as much if I didn't have a "warm up" first with FFX, but I still consider FFVII to be one of the best games I've ever played.
I think it's so popular because it's the first FF to make it into the PC scene and, well, still being a good game with high production values.

It is.
But then, most RPG's are, and FF at least, historically, helped establish a template to many other RPGs.

I dont like FF, but I love GoldenSun, and without FF, stuff like GoldenSun would not have been possible.

Other games;

Dark Earth,
Beyond Good and Evil
Okami
Zeldas (Specificaly Majoras Mask, Twlight Princess, are my favorates).


I like my action adventures

Sands Of Time FTW.

Never played Myst, but there has been games without charecters that I have enjoyed.
Metroid Prime, for example.
If a landscape is atmospheric enough, the feeling of loneliness can be of benefit to the feel.

Well, you know, most of the Lucas Arts adventure games. The Dig, Grim Fandango, Monkey Island (not 4), etc...

Nope, I can't say a thing about PoP3D, got that library bug, I liked the first one. (Not the PC one )
