Perfect 5/5

Wtf did RCT3 get such a low score?

Easy 5. Got dozens of games on my Switch and I’ll still default to cracking out a game of Tetris if I don’t know what I want to do.

Tetris should also have a HGATR music thread

Probably the only game that could truly be called perfect by so many people from so many different backgrounds with so many varying tastes in video games.

I gave it a 4. I remember at the time it launched it was quite demanding and poorly optimized so ran like SHITE on most pc hardware that wasn’t optimized for gaming at the time. Certainly hurt my enjoyment of it back then and I thought it sucked, but having played it again recently it was a lot better than I remember. Though I prefer the atmosphere of the wee isometric parks more overall,.

Finally, a game I’ve actually played!

I’m not sure if I’d describe it as fun. But there’s something deeply satisfying about destroying shapes through tessellation.

It ran like a pig at the time - only really came into its own years later when PCs that could run a park at more the 5 frames a second started to be built and that reputation stuck.

Tempted to spend a fortune on a PS4 and VR headset so I can play Tetris Effect

Tetris Effect in VR is incredible, it truely is a medative outer body experience. But that being said, the game is probably better in the long run on TV. Especially if you’re lucky enough to have an OLED tv and 4k console because holy moly the visuals pop on that set up

Got a bit obsessed with Tetris Blitz a few years back. Love all the crazy power-ups. The original is a classic as well.

Just looked at the price again, will have to make do with pushing my thumbs into my closed eyes

Definite 5 from me. I doubt I have played any game as much as I have Tetris from the Gameboy, DS, and now Switch versions.

A huge root cause of my Repetitive Strain Injury, 1/5

incredible game 5/5 obviously

My typical game strategy is to…

  • Eliminate one line at a time, keeping the height of the blocks as low as possible
  • Eliminate a few lines at a time, not building up too much height but getting the satisfaction of slaying multiple lines in one go
  • Eliminate 4 lines every time, all or nothing

It depends on the situation, right?

Unless it’s getting very tight at the top, I never do anything other than 4 at a time

I’m really bad at Tetris and it annoys me. 1/5

Ah. That’s interesting - I had a shitty laptop at the time and thought it was because of that. It did cut out every half an hour or so
