Myst was a masterpiece, but it hasn't aged well. Its structure is rigid and its puzzles are obtuse, but there's still something about that beautiful, mysterious island that's just aching to be explored. There have been sequels, but Jonathan Blow's The Witness might just be the first proper successor.

It too takes place on a strange island filled with puzzles and weird technology. But it's also a completely open world, letting you explore wherever you want at your own pace. "Once you get out of the tutorial you can literally walk anywhere," says Blow. "It lets the player follow their curiosity."
