I realized the moment I fell into the fissure that the Book would not be destroyed as I had planned. It continued falling into that starry expanse, of which I had only a fleeting glimpse. I have tried to speculate where it might have landed, but I must admit that such conjecture is futile. Still, questions about whose hands might one day hold my Myst book are unsettling to me. I know my apprehensions might never be allayed, and so I close, realizing that perhaps the ending has not yet been written. -- Atrus

Myst Newbie Plays RealMyst Masterpiece Edition

Via Twitter I came upon a YouTube channel of a guy named "crimault" who decided to record his gameplay of RMME.  He'd never played a Myst game before and bought RMME from Steam because of the aesthetics of the screenshots.

I recommend watching because his commentary is hilarious.  I watched his videos over morning coffee and night tea.  They don't take long.  I think a couple of times I choked, most of the time I laughed, and also I talked back with stuff like "Noooo!" and "Bravo!" and "You completely forgot that switch!  Please notice it!"

He actually really enjoyed himself, which was quite refreshing to hear, given that so many people today think the game is lame (as a person recently told me).  He has been convinced that he should play Riven, so by all means stick with his channel.  It's going to be so exciting (as I laugh evilly).

It's providing me with loads of entertainment since I haven't been able to explore more of RMME due to the various research projects I am working on, my language training, and my job which has recently resumed.

I hope you also enjoy his videos!  I provided only the link above instead of embedding the video so that you will have a list of his uploads.
