I remember the early days of NES (that's Nintendo Entertainment System), one of the first drastically popular play at home consoles ever...
There was one game in particular that really became addictive to me, no not Super Mario Brothers or Donkey Kong, but Tetris (as I'm sure you guessed by the title of this article).
Tetris was created in Russia and the very first copies made the inventor NO Money- because the USSR owned the rights!
Tetris would become one of the most popular games of all time and even inspired pop culture art work, building designs, furniture, flower pot (modular) designs, and more. Let's go through the history and pop culture this brilliant game inspired.
This brings back memories!
My all time favourite version of Tetris was a black and white version for Mac (early 1990s) that had typical Russian music and static images of Soviet ice hockey players and Vasilij cathedral.
