...and I feel very, very old.

I don't know when I first got into Tetris - I know it was in an arcade in Kelowna, sometime around 1988 - so I missed some of the first few years, but it still wins my vote for best game ever.

Here's two stories from Wired.

Seconded. Not the college thing, though.

Tetris is every bit as addictive today as it was when it first came out.

I have the DS version of Tetris and all the variations are addicting. But not as much as classic. The first time I played it was on the original Gameboy. Yep, I'm old too.
