Isn't Myth Myst that slideshow game where you spend the entire game exploring the island, and then ...
Spoiler for Hiden:
... as a reward for freeing the father, he lets you explore the island?

I can't imagine why his sons killed him.

Well, Myst is, yeah.  Myth, though, is a game from Bungie that was real time strategy and was extremely cool.

What happened there?  Did people confuse Postal 2 with Portal 2?

It's funny, I was thinking about Myth and how it was so much cooler than Myst as I was writing it.

Looks like it bled into my post. biggrin

I remember the dwarven keg units that actually changed the ground when they went off - I never got into Myth though - and I regretted playing Myst. It almost stopped me from playing another adventure game with a similar, though VERY DIFFERENT, theme : Phantasmagoria.

I have never been able to look at a trowel the same way since.

wow, The Witcher got beat by Two Worlds.  I guess everyone already has The Witcher, so they voted for Two Worlds instead.

the final round is up, with two games that are going to be released tomorrow up for voting: Torchlight vs The Chronicles of Riddick.  whoever wins will be 60% off for the next 7 days, and the loser will be 40% off for the same amount of time.
