On this week's Hot Ones the guest is Matt Damon and most of it is filled with the usual film and behind the scenes questions however at one point Sean asks a question about the Bourne video games, questioning that if it's true Matt Damon turned down doing them because he wanted them to be "more like Myst", to which confirms and gives some extra details (timestamped below):


As we know in the end The Bourne Conspiracy ended up following in the footsteps of Uncharted and Splinter Cell by being a third person action game with mid to average reviews:

Myst is one of those games to recommend to somebody who doesn't like the medium. Roger Ebert played it and even though he never completed it, I wouldn't be surprised to know he had some fun with it.

From what I remember of the interview it wasn't like he wanted it to be just like Myst, but it was more like he used it as an example when explaining that he didn't want the game to just be pure action and shooting

You’d think people would watch the video before blindly dog piling.

Someone give him a high fiber, long length towel. I never understood this show. The showrunner... I mean... if I start to elaborate the specifics, I'm pretty sure some ppl in the everading muztbe pozzitivv clan would surely commit irreversible acts.

I get what he's saying (because he basically focused on one aspect), but that's still a bad example.
