If you’ve ever met me and video games were a discussion topic then you’ll know that I deeply adore Tetris. I’ve always felt that Tetris was the purest video game ever created.
No one version of Tetris supplants the others as each is unique. Some may scoff at new features like being able to hold pieces, or being able to rotate pieces after they’ve touched the playing field, but I assure you Tetris is only as difficult as your skill level. There is no end and the sky is the limit.
With the release of Tetris Effect on PS41, I thought I’d share some links that I’ve come across that tell the story of Tetris, show the evolution of Tetris, and some other nibbly bits in there as well.2

As much crap as I have you about Tetris, it is one of those games that when ever I play with someone I have a great time. No matter what. I don’t like it to play by myself but it is such a perfect party game.
It’s interesting that you view it as a party game. I see it more as a solitary challenge. However, 1 VS 1 Tetris is really fun when you have people near the same skill level.
