I remember playing Myst for the first time. What an EXPERIENCE! We played it so many times. And now, believe it or not, there's a port to iPod! It works surprisingly well, especially with the touch interface. mystiPod1 by Leedale Shepherd, on Flickr
I am not familiar with Riven, but am familiar with MineCraft and I had to play it a bazillion hours in prep for some instruction for others in a MOOC, actually it is for all of you in the summer. I finally got the wolves into dogs, feed them, more dogs, then had to worry about the dogs.
