So the villain rumour has been confirmed, has it?
Of course, all the Myst games have had their intense moments of conflict, though only the scenes with Gehn required you to actually time your movements - and then only minor timing.
Of course, we all know how quick-thinking you have to be in Uru to begin with - just think of powering up Gahreesen!
But, as with the Myst series, we may find ourselves face-to-face with the villain, but before we're actually able to do anything to actively stop him/her, s/he'll probably have access to a Relto book or a Link-Cloth like what Yeesha and Esher have in End of Ages for quick escapes.
Either that or it's a rougue Bahro.
Oh dear. Unfortunately, I fall into the category of naive MYST player. I let Sirrus free in MYST, I didn't fall for Gehn's trap in Riven, I had to try to get the ending several times in Exile (Saavedro just kept coming back to clobber me), I did manage to get the right ending in Rev, and I first gave the Tablet to Esher and then to Yeesha before releasing the Bahro in End of Ages.
I only trusted Saavedro the first time.
The other 5 were figureing out how to do it without exposing myself too.
I really liked Saavedro's dynamic nature, how he started this quest vying for reconcilliation with Atrus, but as things progressed he became bitter. I thought that he was by far the most dynamic character in the MYST canon.
Can we rebuild it? Yes, we can.
Although, I believe with the Myst series, there is NO correct ending, only a certain ending where everything happened to go as planned and therefore continues the story accurately.
After all, all the different endings are reflections on how we as the Stranger are influenced by the words of those we come across.
Surely, there are those who listened to Sirrus' words as truth in Myst, and shunned Achernars, and when it came to the last book, listened to his words and left it alone - just in case it was a trap book...
When I finished End of Ages, I went up to Yeesha first, but seeing that tired, sad expression she wore made me turn away - it surely would not be a good ending. So I went to Esher... After that I was wondering around for ages with that tablet before I thought of how to do the ending...
Too bad we couldn't write on that last tablet, though...
When I played each of the games for the first time, I tried for the best ending possible, then after I got it, I played it again, stuffing around to see as many other endings as I could.
How many people were honourable and let Saavedro out at the end of Exile? (And how many people forgot to change directions to let the outer shell down, instead of the inner one, only to find Saavedro behind out, clubbing your brains out?)

Originally posted by number6.... Unfortunatly, the only way to see the island was to give the tablet to Escher. I mean really, did Cyan think I would give up a chance to explore, a chance to go back to where it all began? I tried laying the tablet down all over Myst Island to give it to the Bahro, but they never came. I.....
Wouldn't it be great if URU Live started on Myst island. Now that would be a trip!
BTW, by replying to my post you gave me enough stars to hype games, so URU got a big 10 from me!
LEGO ADDICT: Why the lack of spoiler tags? You pretty much spoiled the ending of every Myst game to date without tags.
But on a lighter note...
Myst 1-5 SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILERS:
I let Sirrus out... then let Achenar out... then got myself stuck in K'veer. I used the trap book on myself and opened the Star Fissure too early. I lost the Releeshan book and was later clubbed to death by Saavedro. I also waited too long to pull the right lever in Serenia. In my own defense, I made no mistakes with the Tablet.
