I think that myst is the most influential game in history because it
1)Is still a classic with one sequel to be published
2)is the best-selling game EVER!!!!
3)Created the Myst-Clone genre and must be one of the most "copied" concepts. I think Myst was the reason that the adventure games deteriorated over the years, because the game creators tried to do what Cyan did. To transform a bunch of well-drawn pictures to an "immersing" game and that is not a piece of cake

Nope, sorry to tell you but the best selling game ever is The Sims, Myst is pretty high up the tables though, second I think (with Half-life third).

No, it's not. It's a hundred percent accurate. Play Diablo after, say, NetHack, and you'll notice that Diablo is that game with graphics, no turns, and 3/4s of the customization and options removed.

The most influential games...

hmm...

The King's Quest series - in giving Sierra the confidence to create more games, it spawned Caeser and Pharoah.
But also it set the mark for point and click adventures, such as the secret of monkey Island.

The three hugo games were funny. I remember being locked in a room with the medicine man, and doing something with the mouse or something. Well, leisure suite larry was earlier, or not?
