Snake

The GIF that inspired this list (and became a hit on reddit over the weekend) is probably the only way you’ll ever see a perfect game of Snake, the simple 2D game that’s so old that Managing Editor Eric Bangeman wrote a BASIC version in 1982 (though this animation looks like it comes from a Russian Flash knock-off with the same general gameplay). Sure, you do technically “lose” when every single section of the playfield is taken up by a piece of your snakey body. But considering that it’s technically impossible to get a better score once you’ve achieved this feat, we think it’s safe to call this one a “win.”
