I’ve been playing the 1997 version of Snake since about 1999. That makes 17 years that I’ve been playing this game. Long before I had a cellphone of my own, my mother gave me her Nokia when she switched plans. The Nokia had no plan, meaning it had one purpose: for me to play Snake. Eventually the Nokia died, but by that point I had gotten a smartphone, and found I was able to download an app that more or less recreated the experience, number controls and all. And last night, after 17 years of attempts, I finished Snake on the default difficulty. It was cool.
