When I went back to this title for the purposes of this review, I realized again
why I try to avoid this phenomenal game. IT'S WAY TOO ADDICTIVE!!!!!
There's little doubt why the Game Boy was such an amazing success right out of
the starting gate. This game. There's also little doubt as to why the Game Boy
started showing up in the strangest of places (i.e. executive brief cases, handbags
and stashed inside work desks). This game.
Tetris is one of video games' great equalizers. Like Pong or Doom, Tetris affects
people in very similar ways. It's easy to learn, difficult to master and in a
stroke of sheer genius by the good folk at Nintendo, it was the penultimate game
to launch a black and white (actually green and white) portable game system with.
Although we're talkin' moving different shapes around and fitting them into the
proper positions, Tetris stands as one of the best video games ever made. The
Game Boy would be the Game Infant without it.
I'm giving Tetris 10 out of 10
