Tetris: Most Popular Time Waster of the 90s

Tetris is probably the most popular game in the 90s — and you wouldn’t believe it has been 25 years since it was invented (designed and programmed by Alexey Pajitnov in June 6, 1984).

Back then, everyone was playing Tetris from my 60-year old grandmother to my 6 year-old cousins. Tetris was so simple yet so addictive. The game was everywhere, from Gameboy to PC, and those cheap handheld versions that feature 300-in-1 ways to play Tetris (was it a knockoff called Bricks or Brick Games?).

And up to today, the game is still alive and being played by many. Will all the technology in gaming that we have lately, I think Tetris can still be re-invented (most probably for the Nintendo Wii).

Anybody played any Tetris lately?

Thanks to the Tetris effect, I’ve had an extremely profitable career as a barker for more than a decade by visualizing passengers in a crowded jeepney as colorful geometric shapes.
