This Is What It's Like To Actually Win At 'Snake' | Video Games of the 20th century | Scoop.it
"Snake" is one of the most straightforward yet hardest game of all time. All you have to do is get a pixelated snake to eat the pellets without running into itself or the wall, but somehow most people don't get very far.

Amiga - International Karate plus (IK+)

Incredible music but also the incredible fun of a fight not only against your friends but with the computer playing a 3rd opponent ! Another great music from Rob Hubbard ! The challenges players had to go through between the fights were almost as fun as the rest of the game (remember the ball bouncing at you, and you had to avoid it with a sort of shield !)

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, December 27, 2014 2:02 PM

Far Cry is beautiful and one of the first open worlds I enjoyed. Before I discovered WoW and logged a lot of miles on Azeroth. Great point on why stories and missions are not the only thing there is in a game. In my opinion though, single player games leave a lot of that aimlessness aside. its a lot more fun to me to go for a walk and chat aimlessly with another gamer than be on your own. The whole idea of Second Life - which critics to at article could point the lack of long term traction of - was to be an aimless game, wasn't it?
