    Night in the Woods is fantastic.

    So is Telltale's WD S1, Wolf Among Us, & Batman S2. (So far on that last one.)

    I have no mouth and I must scream.

    Dreamfall; The Longest Journey.

    These are all worth experiencing in some respect.

    I'm playing Thimbleweed Park atm, and loving it! Pretty early in though I feel. I'm currently doing that Part 2 with Delores.

    Oh yeah, last Episode of LIS came out as well, despite the sometimes cringy writing I was so emotional during the ending, it's deeply tragic and yet all too real and familiar.

    Myst I found to be a tad repetitive and tedious.
    I don't like games that basically are just a framework for literally puzzles and mini games.
    I never finished that. But I did get me the soundtrack album.
    Riven on the other hand I liked a lot!
    I found that to be much more immersive and less of a "puzzle frame".
    Never ventured beyond Riven in the Myst franchise. I think my best friend played the third one at some point.

    Yeah, Riven was a massive step forward.. Full on immersive. It's the best one.
    Only played 1 and 2 but I remember playing a demo of Myst IV and marvelling at the fact that you could turn around and "see" everywhere.
    zlol

    Brian Dourif plays the villain in the 3rd one.

    In Myst most of the story is told through the books in the library.

    There's lots to read and find....
