Recently installed Carmageddon 2: Carpocalypse Now on '98. It stated that QT was required "for optimal performance" or similar, and to install it. Chose not to install, game seemed to run just fine. What's missing?

Maybe it's needed for the intro movie. Did you see it?
Good question - can't remember now. I'll load it up again soon and check, but that would make sense.
Interesting how it was semi-negotiable, in that you could play the game without installing a major component. Imagine that happening these days...

On the topic of the original Myst, there was a making of video on the CD that was very interesting and gives some insight into just how small a crew they were and how they were able to do great things without a lot of resources. There is a copy on YouTube: https://youtu.be/CGN2W7o1N2s

That was an interesting watch, thanks for sharing 😀
I would never have guessed that the game was using 8-bit paletted images. I should try playing it again, and see if I can actually solve a single puzzle this time around 😜

I can add two more:
Under Windows 3.11 (not compatible to Windows 95 and newer):
- XPLORA1: Peter Gabriel's Secret World
Under Windows 95 (not compatible to Windows 3.11 and earlyer)
- Peter Gabriel's EVE
So a big big big Peter Gabriel fan (like me) needs Windows 3.11 and 95. I have both games here in original boxes.

As you can see, a QuickTime logo is clearly visible on the CD-ROM. IMHO it was used only for the opening animation, though.

Its not been said yet since those are French games but. Max et Moustique: Le Jardin Magique and the Mia series of edutainment games requires Quicktime to play their videos.

The Blaster games that had FMV cutscenes (Mega Math Blaster, Math Blaster Ages 9-12, etc.) always used QuickTime for their Mac versions. The Windows versions used Video for Windows instead at first, using the same AVI files for both platforms. The 1999 "For 3rd Grade" release of Mega Math Blaster not only fixed the Y2K bug, but also moved to QuickTime 3 for the Windows version. Post-2000 releases of Ages 9-12 moved to QuickTime 5.
If a game uses QuickTime 2.1, newer QuickTime versions will not work with it. However, games that use QuickTime 3 or higher will happily run with newer versions. This is as far as Windows is concerned; I didn't find any such issue with Mac OS 9.

Sorry to bump an old thread but I Just installed the 2004 release of Bad Mojo and it came with Quicktime 6.5. May try installing a newer version as I'm not getting any sound on the videos in game or out but they do play.

I'm certain that Gadget (1993) used QuickTime for both win16/mac editions.
Alice: interactive museum may of been another early adopter of Cinepak/QuickTime.
Horror Tour (1997) most likely used it.
One game that definitely does NOT use QuickTime is Burn:Cycle.
Anyone confirm if the windows version of D used QuickTime? The Rozner Labs Dos port used Duck TruMotion but I've heard the windows one is different to some description.

The Windows 3.1 CD-ROM version of Jeopardy used Quicktime 2.x for video, and the game has a LOT of it. I remember being fascinated when I browsed the CD and found all of the .mov files, and could view the various reactions and bits of banter. For some reason one of the contestants saying that he "spends a lot of time in community theatre; we just finished a run of 'Twelfth Night.'"
