What is your favorite classic video game: Tetris
Why is it your favorite: This is a tough question, I could of gone with a few games that I loved growing up, Mike Tyson’s Punch Out, Mario Bros., Skate or Die and countless other ones, Tetris is just one of those games that I can jump into at any time, play a quick game and bounce right out. I feel it still holds up today with gameplay.
It’s not a very complicated game and the graphics might be big blocks, but to me, that’s the appeal of the game. To this day, I still play it as often as I can, maybe once a week or more if time allows. The reason why I love this game is because it causes you to objectively think fast. It’s just one of those games that I can be so emerged into that I don’t really care what’s happening outside, it’s nice to feel lost in a game that requires critical thinking.
One of the last reasons that I love this game is that you can never win playing Type A. It’s literally impossible to win. If you’re wondering what my highest score is, I can’t say I know the exact number, but I’ve gotten to level 23 quite a few times. I generally average about
19-21 after I’ve played a few rounds to warm up.
