No, I don't like it. I LOVE it. I guess I have a thing for playful manipulation and once the plan comes together nicely, forgetting all about it. I love to gather all four rows and wait for the I tetromino to show up, so they can all have a party at once.

Start playing it again! Nostalgia is highly addictive.
Yes! Though I'm not an NF. It's just that there's no tetris threads
For those who like Tetris, can I recommend a SNES game called Battle Gaiden? It's old school tetris combo-ed with fantasy magic
One of my child hood games along with bomberman. Yes, I'm a Nintendo Fan. ^^
Actually, it is interesting that you should have posted this thread. I first played Tetris probably when I was 14 or 15 and my brother and I were quite addicted for several years. I started playing it again recently, and have played a lot in intermittent bursts.
I noticed something especially interesting about Tetris a few months ago. I was going through an unpleasant interpersonal situation which was causing me a lot of nervousness, stress and upset...and when I use those words, I'm talking the kind of stress and upset that cause me fatigue, nausea, and destruction of peace of mind.
I was playing Tetris quite a bit at this time and it really helped me to relax and, to a certain extent, switch off. Basically I find that while I was playing, my mind was probably still ruminating over my problems and worries to a certain extent, but a lot of the sting was taken away. I couldn't entirely stop thinking about this stuff but physically and emotionally I felt a lot calmer while I was playing.
Anyone have similar experiences with this or a similar game? Any comments on why this would happen?
