Stuck on this bad boy!

I tried different attempts of trying to crack this and my head is about to pop :/ I can't think of what I'm doing wrong or it is the lack of oxygen going to my brain to think.

VideoGamesRepository.cs
using Treehouse.Models;

namespace Treehouse.Data
{
    public class VideoGamesRepository
    {
       public VideoGame GetVideoGame(int id) 
        {
           foreach(var videoGame in _videoGames)
           {
               if (videoGame.Id == id) {
                   return videoGame;
               }
           }
           return null;
        }

        private static VideoGame[] _videoGames = new VideoGame[]
        {
            new VideoGame()
            {
                Id = 1,
                Title = "Super Mario 64",
                Description = "Super Mario 64 is a 1996 platform video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64.",
                Characters = new string[]
                {
                    "Mario",
                    "Princess Peach",
                    "Bowser",
                    "Toad",
                    "Yoshi"
                },
                Publisher = "Nintendo",
                Favorite = true
            },
            new VideoGame()
            {
                Id = 2,
                Title = "Mario Kart 64",
                Description = "Mario Kart 64 is a 1996 go-kart racing game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64 video game console.",
                Characters = new string[]
                {
                    "Mario",
                    "Princess Peach",
                    "Bowser",
                    "Toad",
                    "Yoshi"
                },
                Publisher = "Nintendo",
                Favorite = false
            }
        };
    }
}
VideoGame.cs
namespace Treehouse.Models
{
    // Don't make any changes to this class!
    public class VideoGame
    {
        public int Id { get; set; }
        public string Title { get; set; }
        public string Description { get; set; }
        public string[] Characters { get; set; }
        public string Publisher { get; set; }
        public bool Favorite { get; set; }

        public string DisplayText
        {
            get
            {
                return Title + " (" + Publisher + ")";
            }
        }
    }
}

Don't forget the caution given at the start of the challenge: "Important: In each task of this code challenge, the code you write should be added to the code from the previous task.".

I see your task 2 code, but I don't see the function you must have written to pass task 1. Perhaps you replaced it instead of adding to it while working on task 2.

It might help to leave the two comment lines in the code, and add each task's function below the related comment.
