I loved Braid. Just throwing that out there.
Holy crap. Myst is 20 years old. Pass the geritol. Anyway:
I'm not a fan of platformers, so I wasn't particularly a fan of Braid. I appreciated the unique ethic and it had some fun ideas, but it was a little twee for me. I'm a big fan, however, of 3d exploration games of which Myst is definitely OG. Jonathan Blow made a sheaf of bills riffing on Mario; if he can make a sheaf of bills riffing on Myst good on 'im.
