Favorite Classic Game: NES Tetris
Why it is your favorite: NES Tetris has been my muse, my vice, and my obssession for quite some time. To make a Long story short, I want to max out the score and join one of the most exclusive clubs in gaming history so doing.
What is your part in the movie: The movie itself follows the story of 6-10 of the best NES Tetris players in the world covering their training routine, love of the game, past present and future plans: I am one of those players I currently hold the lines record (well sort of, but i certainly did at the time of filming) and am in first place (amoung those who have not maxout out yet) sort of a “best of the worst of the best” haha
Bio: I’m a small town fellow from North Dakota who gre up playing very few video games, tetris was my favorite and remains so to this day. I work as an Advisor at a Community College in Minneapolis, helping students navigate resources and decide on the best courses to take etc… I like cubed and fried SPAM… its a fact 🙂
