Ok, let's be honest. Did anyone buy a GameBoy for a reason other than to play Tetris on it?

When Tetris came to the world of handhelds, one was now able to leave their house and be somewhat social without giving up their crack.. er, i mean Tetris addiction. Assuming 'somewhat social' means playing Tetris on you GameBoy at the restaurant, or at school, or on the bus, or while play... read more

This game simply rules! It takes strategy, you can play it on different difficulties and it has inspired plenty of future Tetris themed games and ideas. Most of all it's freakin' addictive. That's the sign of a crazy good game, in which is worth your money. I miss the older games and I'm 19, so I wasn't even around in the 80's but I'm fortunate to have these older games due to killer parents. My g... read more

Description: The original commercially-licensed version of Alexey Pajitnov's classic Tetris puzzle game. Geometric shapes fall from the top of a playfield to rest on the bottom; fit the pieces together, and the line they form disappears. If the pieces don't form lines and eventually stack up to the top of the playfield, the game is over. Difficult ... (more)

" Picture of My profile The "I" shaped piece From Russia (with fun!) comes one of the most popular and plagiarized games of all time. It's really hard to underestimate the importance of Tetris when it helped launch the original GameBoy but at the same time I can kind understand those who criticize it for being held in too high of regard. Tetris IS the quintessential puzzle game if there ever was one, but when was the last time anyone was TRULY excited about a Tetris game? Anyway, I know some pe"

"Release Date: June 14, 1989 (JP) Publisher: Nintendo Developer: Bullet Proof Software Genre: Puzzle This is the game that made the Game Boy. Without Tetris, I'm not confident that Nintendo's handheld would have flourished like it did. That little opinion out of the way, I don't think I need to say a whole lot about Tetris. You probably know all about it. Tetris is one of those great games that just does not age. It's just as fun to play today as it was when it was first released and in 100 year"

"No.127 / Added: 07.18.11 / Status: Played As the pack-in title for the original Game Boy it’s pretty much an unwritten rule that you have to have a copy of Tetris around if you have a Game Boy or a Game Boy Advance handy; it's definitely one of the most defining renditions of the game ever produced. Still, Tetris doesn't really fail or succeed depending on which version one is playing but succeeds because of the beauty of the game’s simplicity."

My generation needs to play this game to appreciate newer games(Which I detest for the most part).

15 Most Influential Games of All Time (15 games items)

"The import of Tetris and the influence that it has had on the video game industry are undeniable. In June of 1985, a Russian programmer named Alexey Pajitnov developed a simple geometric puzzle game, and the world of gaming has never been the same. The game stands as one of the most ported games to date; nearly every console since the game's inception has been blessed with at least one version or another of Tetris, if not multiple renderings. While not a concept that would blow away today's gam"

Greatest 100 Video Games (100 games items)

"Game Boy - 1988 "It's the king of games. There's nothing left to add or subtract from Tetris' design; in a way, it's nearly perfect. Logic and speed, the left brain and the right brain, intensity and relief--all done in only four blocks. This almost-miraculous game taught us the very important fact that a game's fun is not bound by its screen resolution. It proved to us that games can be a universal tongue, crossing language, borders, ethnicity, age, and platform." --Tetsuya Mizuguchi, designer"
