Ever wanted to know the history of Tetris?

 

 

You don’t? Well, too bad. While searching around on Google Video, I came across this BBC documentary on the history of Tetris, and it’s creator Alexey Pajitnov. It’s interesting watching how Tetris developed as a little side project, and then becomes this big hit amongst computer people in Russia. Once it goes to the computer market, it becomes a hit on the PC, but finally hitting the home console and with Nintendo does Tetris truly explode. If you’ve got an hour to kill, watch this. It’s truly worth your while.
