    Admittedly I am not an active gamer. However, I've played and enjoyed Myst, Riven, and Myst III Exile. What other games would you recommend that would be similar---problem solving rather than action based?

    Your advice is appreciated.

    (Would need to be appropriate for a soon to be purchased 17" iMac--come on upgrades!!)

    Hehe...with what is coming out for the mac now, you might have to go out an buy an action game.

    However, I'm sure there are other puzzle games out there to stretch your mind...just go to or some other mac gaming site, search the reviews, and find a puzzle game that interests you.

    Sorry I don't have any specific game reccomendations, but I don't play puzzle games.

    Try looking for a game called "Obsidian" been out a while, and I think only in the US, very much like the Myst series, but the puzzles were a bit easier, good story-line though.

    There really hasn't been much to touch Myst has there?

    Oh well, back to Quake 3...:D

    Well, there is this little thing coming out called "Uru". ;)

    From what I seen on the specs mentioned and posting in other message boards is only being developed for the PC platform at this time but Cyan does want a Mac version. I think the publisher, Ubisoft, just needs convincing.

    Obsidian - how i hated that game -but not as must as i did myst. I lost a good chunk of my childhood feeling stupid infront of the computer. maybe thats the root of my low self esteem?
