Today, tetris turned 25. As expected, google even had a theme for that.

The original is the best. Newer revisions may sell more, but they wouldn't exist if not for the original. :wink:

wikipedia wrote:Tetris (Russian: Тетрис) is a puzzle video game originally designed and programmed by Alexey Pajitnov. It was created on June 6, 1984,[1] while he was working for the Dorodnicyn Computing Centre of the Academy of Science of the USSR in Moscow.[2] He derived its name from the Greek numerical prefix "tetra- (all of the game's pieces, known as Tetrominoes, contain four segments) and tennis, Pajitnov's favorite sport.[3][4]
