I figured that we can take today to reflect on one of the greats from games past, and in my opinion - the greatest game of all time.

It's simplicity gives the game mass appeal, even if you don't have opposable thumbs you still can go for the high score!

More simplistic in design and objective than Super Mario, this puzzle game takes a lot more concentration, and unlike the popular side scroller, there is no end boss.

What game could deserve the title of BEST... GAME... EVER?  What am I blabbering on about in broken paragraphs not worthy of all the extra spacing!!  Oh if the internet were paper I'd be killing so many trees right now... but to get back to my point;

I'm talking about TETRIS.


If you've never played, or don't like Tetris, please shoot yourself in the face.  Nothing of value will be lost.  I can (and have on multiple occasions) play this game for hours. The rush of trying for a high score, whether your goal is beating your friends' or your own personal best, there's not much that compares to this classic game.

The game's popularity is recognized by game devs world over, and on all platforms.  If you have a TI-83, cell phone made after 2000, handheld system, or even just your P.C, you likely can have Tetris (or some variant of it at least) on your device, for free, in a matter of seconds.

As an owner of a touch screen smartphone, (Moto Droid running FroYo here,) I've been sorely disappointed with almost every (free) version of the game I could find on the Market.  I mean before they were all cleared out not long ago (copyright infringement lawls) even the best looking tetris game or clone fell short of holding the standard of fun and captivation factor that Tetris DS gives. A real BUTTON, not a virtual one  is really necessary to enjoy Tetris as intended. 

So everyone please pay your respects to one of the greatest video games of all times!  Though our current gen systems and games offer nearly real looking graphics, great physics and actions created via motion tracking suits, none of them can offer the simple pleasure of erasing a four block stack from existence.

Viva Tetris!
