Greetings and Shorah, everyone!

This is the second part of poll number 6, in regards to people's favorite ages.
Please note from here on that there will be a full list of Ages throughout the Myst games below!

These are just here to spark your memory a bit - click on the links to help your rusty old memory along. (sometimes the experience is remembered, but the name is not.) Links have been stolen from DPWR,net (Our very own Guild of Archivers) and MYSTerium (The Myst Fansite)

As I cannot possibly make a poll with this many options, it is up to you to reply and simply write down the age name or even the number. ;)



MYST
1.1 Myst
1.2 Channelwood
1.3 Stoneship
1.4 Selenitic
1.5 Mechanical Age
1.6 Rime

Riven

2.3 Tay

Exile

3.5 Amateria
3.6 Narayan

4.3 Serenia

End of Ages

Hope you enjoy the memories,
Shevek

I don't remember any of the puzzles/etc from any of the games, only the views, so I have to go with Noloben. I can't quite remember, but I believe this is the age with the big "rock hut" on top of a plateau with symbols carved all around the outside of it. I thought the visuals of this Age were especially interesting.

Shorah guys!

Yes, Adrian, Noloben was the Age with the big "Rock Hut" in the center of a field of grass atop a plateau. It was this Age, actually, that was the Demo for Myst V. I think that it has some truly astounding parts in its' own right - with tunnels and a beach, which highlights a very important thing: Ages are not just one feature.
They have many different parts and areas that all work well together.

In the case of Noloben, it is the fact that a beach is not just a beach - It is the sound of the sea, the palm trees, the sand, the lagoons, the dunes, the cliffs, the rock-pools... Anyone who illustrates a beach as a place where "Dirt meets water" has completely missed the point of the beach. This applies to any Age, but I tried to chose, for the Myst V Ages, images that best represented what I felt where the nicest parts of the Age.

I've always loved Amateria. Best payoff ever.

Please forgive me for nitpicking, but Riven's "Age 223" should be "Age 233," Exile's "Edana" should be "Edanna," and the game "Revelations" should be "Revelation."

In addition, shouldn't Tomahna be added to Revelation, as follows?

Revelation
4.1 Tomahna
4.2 Haven
4.3 Spire
4.4 Serenia

I played Myst III about six years ago, and I always did like Amateria... I don't know why, but for some reason, I enjoyed having to complete the puzzle at the end of the age and watch, as you were being rolled down the track in a glass ball. :lol:
