Well, I cannot pick just one, but if "Myst" was to be treated as an all encompassing category that would be it lol. (I'm sure that's not quite what you had in mind) let's just say I couldn't choose between Myst, Riven, and URU:CC/MOUL.

that is a good link. i'm reading about the idoodlesoftware deal mentioned elsewhere on these forums that was provided through that link.

I love the soundtrack the most...

in my list of game soundtracks, Riven and Halo are tied (because they both have great, ambient music)

Riven may have been "better" but Myst has the benefit of being the first. Nostalgia factor win. And URU:CC/MOUL just has the familiar Myst look and feel and a position that sets it apart from the others especially given MOULs group exploration and social interaction.

This months issue of GamePro featured not one but two, count em, two honorable mentions of Myst. One in regards to Cyan Chat's "m****cript" snafu and the other mentioning a book analyzing D'ni culture. People still regard Myst fondly.

RIVEN

This is the MYST series that I came across for the first time.
I was completely attracted in this world!

My favorite music in games is a tie between the Donkey Kong Country series, Portal series, and the Myst series. (Though Halo's music is quite good, Mass Effect and Metroid's is better; Halo's is grand never the less.)

For me, the freedom of a fully 3D immersive realtime environment beats out a pre-rendered point-and-click 2D environment, even when the 2D images are as enhanced as Riven's were.
I wish I could have voted for Complete Chronicles, MO:UL and Open Source.
