I say Riven, by far. Although I haven't played all the games on this list, I have played all the games in the Myst series. I found the follow-ups to be very good but lacking in the Riven mystic which is: art, plot, actors, puzzles, and music perfectly integrated to create a world that FELT real.

I also tried playing Aura which is much like Schizm. These are two rare games that I couldn't bother to finish. They have some beautiful scenes but the story lines are thin, the puzzles too frequent and random to the plot, and the opportunities to explore consistantly blocked so you couldn't feel the adventure.
