Added DiffLines:

* ExtremeSpeculativeStratification: The Terahnee, seen in the tie-in novel ''The Book of D'ni'', take the cake for pointless malice. With their Book-writing ability, they have unlimited access to land and resources, and indeed among their own kind even the very poor live in huge mansions, control land the size of a small country, barely work and spend most of their time in pursuit of the arts or playing extravagant games. However, the Terahnee decided that, with unlimited access to natural resources, the power source of their civilization should be slave labor. Because they see themselves as superior to other races, they enslave them and force them to work in backbreaking labor until death, while being carefully trained to never make a sound or be seen by their masters.

* GiganticMoon: The moon in Myst understandably bears no resemblance to our moon, but the one in Channelwood is unbelieveably ''huge''.

The late Creator/DouglasAdams, upon playing Myst, cheerfully declared the game to be a 'BeautifulVoid' due to the lack of other characters or life of any kind. (He also created ''StarshipTitanic'', which was a game with a very similar premise [-[[RecycledINSPACE IN SPACE]]-], with snarky robots.)

* EnvironmentalNarrativeGame: ''Myst'' is an UrExample, though the player moves screen by screen instead of having complete freedom of movement in the original game. ''[=realMyst=]'' does have complete freedom of movement. It's not quite a full example of the genre as it does feature puzzles, whereas Environmental Narrative Games tend not to feature even what little gameplay ''Myst'' has.
