Old games give me new surprise

At first I thought these ancient forms of video games would either be too hard to play or just plain borning. My eyes were opened after doing the workship in today's class. First, I tried my hand at Pcik up the phone booth and die, really blunt title, dont you think? Well after getting myself into a several loops, I actually pulled the booth on top of me and died. I then tried the game 9:05, I liekd 9:05 because the plot seemed more specific and to my surprise turned out to have a twist to it I wasn't expecting. The thing about these games is that they aren't relying on graphics or images, but it seems like they are relying on your memory skills and just plain common sense. Still very surprising how far you can go with these games.

I tried the games out and I thought 9:05 was fun because for those (me) not very good at rapid button jamming, but typing responses was good because it makes you really aware of the significance of every move you make.
