No matter how complex and enthralling modern video games may be, it's unlikely that they'll ever eclipse the appeal of the humble wordsearch.
A hangover from the back page of newspapers and idle days in primary school, wordsearch games stimulate the basic linguistic portion of our brains while tapping into a primitive, competitive impulse as we try to beat our friends and classmates.
