I've heard a few people mention Uru Live here and there. So I guess a topic is a good idea for this subject.
I've played the game + expansions before the live shut down and then reopened being free.
I did play the live version for a bit a few months ago, though. Although I didn't finish any of the new stuff though.
I like Uru the best out of the Myst games because I prefer its playing style.

I love Uru and Myst! I've played the first four Myst games (still haven't gotten around to the fifth one), the offline version of Uru and MO:UL. I'm actually a somewhat prominent member in the online community, for various reasons (including being a Guild Master of the Guild of Messengers).
Oh, and in case you don't know, Myst Online: Uru Live recently became open-source, which is why I've been poking at it from various angles, in collaboration with the Guild of Writers.

HUGE Myst fan. I was actually just playing Riven earlier today. Probably my favorite one of the series. I have an offline version of Uru and I really need to get Uru Live, but I just keep forgetting.

Riven is definitely my favourite game, mostly because of Gehn, but also because of all the subtle hints spread throughout the islands and their associated backstory. The fact that you can have a ton of different endings was also an element of great interest to my experimental nature.

I don't know if it's there on the PC version, but on the PS2 version of MYST III there is a quiz to test your knowledge of the Myst series. I did it this morning and disappointed myself with only a 27 out of 30.

It's under a Special Features option from the main menu. Most of the questions I knew right away, but some were tough. (How many water pipe junctions are there in Channelwood?)

Whoooo, kinda a hard question for me to answer. Only ever completed Uru. The rest I watched my mom play yeeeears ago when she was into them (too long ago to remember much). Although, in 6 days from now, a year ago I started playing Exile for a bit (was even recording/making a LP), but something stopped me, don't quite remember what (certinly not lack of interest, might of been my currently non-existing laptop became trash). So the only game I can really pick from is Uru. Still kinda hard to pick though. I'm gonna have to say Kadish Tolesa, and Eder Gira+Kemo. I haven't yet been there, but Eder Delin looks pretty.

Hmm... Tough... I'm going to say my favourite moment was when the elevator rises in Spire and you rise with it - the music went perfectly with that scene.
My favourite Age would probably be Riven itself, just because of its sheer depth.
