I decided to create a Myst-like mod with puzzles and not a bullet fired nor a drop of blood spilt. It was pretty good, and it stood out like a shining gold bar amongst a lot of grey rocks.
The lesson to be learnt from this is that all too many in the industry either lack imagination or lack the skills to create something different. I think there is a huge market for something different, and it took Nintendo to expose it.
Like many here, I looked at the Wii (Oh, how I laughed at that name!) when announced and said (publicly) it was doomed to be another obscure Japan-only console.
How great would Myst be on the Wii??
