This titan of a game isn't one to be passed up. The emotional connection the viewer feels when Sam gets told to sort his socks, as well as the impending danger imposed upon the viewer when Sam decides to "shut his eyes for just a bit" before doing so, are both so incredibly deep and resplendent that the only way to describe this is as an experience. You look at good art; you experience timeless art. Similarly, you experience Pajama Sam's Sock Works instead of merely playing it. This game is a feast - a delight to the senses - and has earned its place in the phenomenal Pajama Sam series.

i am the tube of my socks.
pajamas are my body and chores are my blood.
i have sorted over a thousand socks,
unkown to death,
nor known to life.
have withstood chores to sort many stockings
yet those feet will never wear anything.
so, as i sort--
unlimited sock works

If your parents didn't buy you this when you were a child, they never really loved you.

I remember this game fondly and, surprisingly, it holds up pretty well. As usual for the humongous arcade games there's a degree of luck here, but it's never crippling enough to the point where you can be forced into impossible situation, and it's still mostly a reactive thinking exercise. It never gets too difficult but it's not that easy, either, and it's really quite enjoyable for what it is.
