Hey, so I learned that you happen to like games. Are you familiar with Chip's Challenge by any chance? I have a thing for old-school games.

Yeah, not many people I know know of it. I played all of the Microsoft Entertainment Pack games, but this one was/is my favorite. It's so challenging, yet that's what makes it so fun. The story is: Chip wants to join Melinda the Mental Marvel's exclusive Bit Buster Club. But to do so, she makes him go through this biiig maze to collect computer chips. There are a lot of obstacles and different kinds of "monsters" (each monster moves in an ordered pattern), and if Chip comes into contact with any of the monsters, he "dies", and has to start the level from the beginning. Starting from the beginning when you're 'almost there', but made one wrong move, can be frustrating. (I can't tell you how many times this happened.) The good news is that if you've attempted a level enough times without success, it'll let you skip on to the next level to play, and you can go back to attempt the previous level later.

One of my favorite moments is when I finally passed Level 87 after 50+ attempts.

The original game set is where you want to start with, but it's hard to obtain it nowadays thanks to licensing issues. The newer sets already assume experience with the original, and are harder.
