Henk Rogers brought Tetris to the West and turned it into a global phenomenon. GamesBeat caught up with him for an interview about the longevity of the iconic puzzle game.
Who's still playing Tetris??
Henk has Tetris figured out.
Wonder if we'll ever see any games with as much staying power as Tetris. Maybe Minecraft? I can imagine people still talking about that game, and maybe even still porting it to future consoles/devices, 30 years from now.
I like it when I get a long piece.
I'm eager to introduce my kid to Tetris.
I had a Tetris watch at school. I probably should have spent more time listening in class than playing on it...
I remember, in the late 90s, EGM doing a 100 greatest games of all time feature and in which they gave the top spot to Tetris. I was surprised. I was mildly unhappy. And now, years later, I get it.
Because puzzle game are educational and very casual and it has good benefits like it will sharpen your mind and brain.. It will boost your senses and adrenals.
