Passage (link via Jason Kottke) is a game that you either “get” and think of as a remarkable experience, or you don't and think it's a pointless game where nothing happens.
I “got” it, and found it deeply moving, for a video game that plays for five minutes (really!) with a 100×16 pixel resolution, simple controls (arrow keys only) and a very computerish sound track. It's recommended you play it once before reading the author's statment about the game (which, oddly enough, contains spoilers for this five-minute low-res simple game).
It also has some glowing reviews (but play it first before reading anything else on this game).

ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
