Tetris

Fess up, people! Who are the Tetris fans among us?



Post here about how often you play it, when you first discovered it, if you have ever suffered from 'Tetritis', what your high score is, what do you play it on, when and where do you play, etc. etc.

Gameboy (colour) Tetris player - last case of Tetritis occurred on February 9, 2002, while watching Fellowship of the Ring - d'oh!

I used to play it nonstop on my NES. I used to hear the music when I wasn't playing it.

I loooooooove it!! I can't play anymore though, because it is too addictive, and I wouldn't get anything done. Ever!!

I used to have Tetris dreams. I would be sleeping in my bed and my dream would be falling puzzle pieces.

My high score was only 192

Spinninghead and elizabeth: that's Tetritis. I don't know if hearing the music is also a symptom.

I used to only get it at night, but then I got it at the cinema recently, and it was so distracting!

I go through long dark "lost weekends" with tetris, and then won't touch it for months and months.

Tetris is the only video game I know how to play. And I'll crush anybody who tries to take me on.

I used to play it ALL the time when I had a ghetto gameboy as a child. I thought it would put me to sleep at night, but I played so many games, sometimes I just ended up staying awake all night instead. SO much for the putting me to sleep theory

A friend of mine once said that watching me play Tetris is a form of Zen meditation. I love that game, oh I love it so. I can't say enough good things about it in fact so I'll just stop now.
