Riven or the 7th guest

Since I hate the mass: wsig- thread cause no one ever answer


What to get from them: Riven or 7th guest?

Myst and Riven play like really beautiful slide shows. Seventh Guest feels more like a 3D space. Riven has aged better, though, perhaps because it's an original take on the adventure game. Seventh Guest has a more familiar haunted house atmosphere, which, combined with the dated 3D graphics, makes it seem a bit, well, cheesier. Both are still great games, though.

While I haven't tried the 7th guest, you can't go wrong with Riven.

It's a fantastic game that shouldn't be missed!
