Happy Birthday, TETRIS


The game was created 25 years ago today. Learn more about the creation of “the world’s greatest video game” here.

I don’t know about you, but I played TETRIS so much when I was an undergrad in the late 1980s, I would see the shapes when I closed my eyes, trying to get to sleep at night.

And now, there are kids still playing it today on their Wiis and on their cell phones.


  1. So did I.

    I think Tetris is the most addictive video game ever.

  2. I have always, always sucked at Tetris.

  3. I’m old. So old.

    Even now, I still maintain that Tetris is the highest point video games have achieved in terms of being art.

    I would put Okami or Ico/Shadow of the Colossus in that category too.
