The fact that this guy is 16 makes this even more crazy. Great job.

Nah, that's like peak gamer skill age in my opinion. Anecdotally, I used to play Tetris NES all the time when I was 16, and all my lifetime highest scores and highest levels reached (I was never nearly as good as this guy, my high school was a little over 500,000 and my highest level reached was 21 or 22 I think, it's been a very VERY long time but I remember it decently well enough haha), and 16/17 and sophomore/junior year of high school were my best years. I still play NES Tetris sometimes but it's been a couple decades (ugh) since those peak skill years, and I can't even get past level 15 anymore or more than about 200,000 points, and that's on a really good day. My typical score lately is like level 12 and 100,000 points. Old reflexes just aren't there anymore. Plus, I just don't have time to practice often enough to even reach my peak potential right now.
