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.
