    Yes, I am. Played the the original Myst on PC. I really like the Myst-style, the atmosphere, the riddles. And the landscapes are just simply great. Looking forward to play it on the DS [​IMG]

    yep, it's one of those games that I've always thought to be perfect for the ds, glad they've decided to make it happen.

    Does anyone know if it's three-D like the rerelease on PC? Or fixed images that you click around?

    I'm looking forward to Myst. The original PC version was just a few years before I really got into these sort of PC games, so I'm looking forward to playing it for the first time. [​IMG]

    I prolly should finish Zelda and Spyro first though.

    Uhm....The original PC version WAS still images that you click around. It was made way too long ago to have a movable camera within 3D space. Maybe I'm misunderstanding what you mean by 3D, but the DS game is like the PC one was.

    Myst was re-released as RealMyst a couple of years ago. The same exact game, but fluid 3D, like running around in a FPS. From the YouTube video, it's point and click, though...

    I don't think it'll be a good port, I might give it a try but I didn't really like it that much on the PC way back then.

    wow, myst on yet another system. Just what the world needed.
    It's like a somebody said "hey, lets port a lonely and depressing game experience that everybody's already paid for at least once."

    That game was really popular too. I think it's because a lot of schools bought it for days that they didn't want to teach. Soon the awards started rolling in and and grandparents thought it must be some kind of great so they bought them as gifts for children. one of those 'forced to play' games. I think I've even got the JagCD and 3do versions around somewhere...

    I've gpt the Sega Saturn version, an excellent game but as reperman said it's damn depressing. To be honest the controls can be a bit combersome as well, although using the stylus it might be a little better. If there's going to port old adventure games like Myst I'd rather see something like Enemy Zero or even a good port of Dungeon Master (I know it's not quite the same but damn if it doesn't kick ass!).

    Dungeon Master with on-line play would be very sweet.

    We got it with our first Mac when Myst came with every Mac. I thought it was a horrible game. But I was used to Sierra and Lucasarts adventure games.

    I'm keen to give it another go now that I'm older.

    Edit: I basically said the same sentence twice. Retarded.

    I can't believe the Sierra hasn't released their back catalog for the DS (or someone else hasn't bought the rights and done it) as it's the ideal machine for them. It wouldn't push the machine graphically or anything but the touch screen is perfect the play system.

    I'd love to see Kings Quest, Space Quest, Police Quest and Leisure Suit Larry on the DS.

    I know. It's the perfect opportunity to revive the genre. I know we have SCUMM VM, but that's just for the converted. I'm sure if Lucasarts and Sierra did official DS releases we'd get a lot more new fans, and some more new games. I just love the graphical styles of the Monkey Island 2, King's Quest 5 and 6, Fate of Atlantis era games. It sucked when they all went too cartoony (I'm looking at you King's Quest 7 and Monkey Island 3).

    AHHHH... there's so many good ones that should be on DS: Police Quest 2, Space Quest 4, The Dig, King's Quest 5....

    I want to go on a real adventure again. Hehe I remember the days of no internet, hand-holding or faqs. Sometimes it'd take me a month to get past one point in a game - but once you worked it out, it was so satisfying.
