The 25th Anniversary of Tetris

tetris-nintendo

I can’t even begin to tell you how many countless hours of my life were once wasted on Tetris for the original Nintendo Game Boy. I was 3 or 4 years old and would play the living shit out of that game. My mother would too and could easily reach levels upwards of 100. I suppose that on the 25th Anniversary of the game, we should be thanking its creator, the legendary Alexey Pajitnov. This Russian computer scientist is the brains behind the blocks, which has sold over 125 million copies to date. Has your software ever sold 125 million copies? Didn’t think so.

Personally, I still play Tetris on Facebook, loved Tetris DS and have always wanted to play Hyper Tetris.

  1. Tetris is popular because it has been proven to reduce stress and enhance brain power. The most notable was a UK study showed tetris helped people that were victims of trauma reduce flashbacks.

    As a Reuters article clearly points out, there is a huge amount of violence in today’s video games and Tetris is the opposite.

    It’s amazing how many people playing now. Must see, http://tinyurl.com/r97xna
