Covert reports have indicated that several games within the MG database do not qualify as a game. Undisclosed officials have denied such accusations. Investigations are underway, though progress of the current status report have yet to be identified.

Screensavers don't have cleverly constructed, complex, challenging puzzles. Nor do they have intricate philosophical fable-like storylines.

Oh, and you should play the remake, RealMyst. It's in full 3D.

Complex and frustration is an amazingly thin line. :p

Now, you were going to give examples regarding *games* that are not games?

If you don't get this hint, I give up. :p
