SpaceChem: action, reaction

Have no idea what's going on here? Neither do I.

When was the last time a game truly challenged you? Okay, besides Dark Souls.

When was the last time a game not only challenged you, but was a challenge for you to even play?

SpaceChem has stretched my brain far further then my corporate finance class ever could, and I've barely even scratched the surface.

Maybe it's just because my mind doesn't work like an engineer's or a programmer's, but shouldn't that be the point? To challenge the way we think, push ourselves beyond our comfort zones, and from all our fruitless fumbling find satisfaction?
