Here's what *actually* happened at the end of Riven, IIRC. The events of the game are slightly misleading.

You open the fissure to signal Atrus. He stops writing and links in to bring home both you and Catherine. Catherine assures us that she relocated all the Rivenese to Tay. They link out. You fall through the fissure, along with the telescope, dagger, and (presumably) a wahrk.

Atrus no longer writes any corrections into the Age, and so the Age slowly collapses over a period of a few months. It is almost surely not the case that the entire world was sucked through the fissure. The dramatic clouds and instability when you open the fissure are there to answer the inevitable question that people still ask: "Why can't we link back to Riven?"

While riven was difficult, I think it was a great deal more logical than Path of the Shell. The contant bugs in POTS and the environment puzzles that were a little questionable made it a questionable experience. Thankfully the story made up for it.

Riven though, IMO Riven was the best Cyan game to date.

thing is if riven would return it wouldn't be our riven, it would be different... at least we wouldnt have the same adventure, also we cant forget that as we have seen in myst 5's Myst, much can happen to an age in 200 years
