I'm just curious why Cyan released so many versions of Myst masterpiece, and only onerealMyst? I've played them all Myst (original) Myst Masterpeice, and realMyst. And like many others, thought realMyst was by far the best version. But Cyan (or was it Unisoft?) chose to promote Myst Masterpiece much more. Any thoughts?

There is no substitute for the original format. With Masterpiece you get the nostalgia of playing the original with the eye-candy of Riven. Technically the newer stuff may be superior, but I've never felt the same wonder I did when I first played Myst and Riven. Amateria in Exile came close though....

The slides in Myst Masterpiece don't even come close to Riven quality. The slides were upgraded a bit between Myst and MME, but I don't really notice all that much of a difference. Plus, I think MME had the hint system built in to it, while the original did not.

The original Myst with the image quality of Riven... that would be something I'd buy in a heartbeat.

Even Riven's image quality isn't spectacular by today's standards. It ran in 640x480. I'd love to see it in 1600x1200.

I think that most of what MME was for was to offer the same level of quality on Windows as was available on the Mac. The original Windows port had lower quality, particularly for the sounds.

RealRiven would definately be something else!! But I don't think the high graphical quality could be preserved in a real time 3D environment :? But as for the "being there" and look in any direction you want it would be worth owning.

Size aside, the visual quality IMO is still fabulous. I think Riven looks and feels better than Uru or even Myst V.
