Tetris!

“With 100M Downloads, Tetris Is World’s Hottest Mobile Game”

“Tetris has sold 100 million paid downloads on mobile devices since 2005, making it the most successful mobile game of all time, EA Mobile and Blue Planet Software said Thursday.”

Tetris was my first game on my first personal console (remember the original fat Gameboy?) when I was four or five. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one with a strong, nostalgic connection to this game…but who knows if the appeal will last a decade from now? Or will Bejeweled become the new Tetris for the next generation, perhaps?

Regardless, College Humor has a pretty good video on the topic…
