At some point in the late 90s there was an x-rated internet version where you line up contorted male and female bodies and they "cleared" of you could get them into sexual positions. That game was a part of my misguided youth.

It's because I want to clear 4 lines at once. that's why it's addictive.

I didn't read the article, but I think it taps in to our need to make order of things.  You want things to fit and you feel a sense of satisfaction when it works.  When you get a tetris you feel a greater sense of satisfaction, coupled with straightforward gameplay and great music.  It's just a good game.

When the space aliens land, and we are trading tech, we will give themTetris and they will give us FTL engines. And then we will be jetting around the galaxy while their civilization implodes.

it is basically the perfect puzzle game.  often duplicated, never surpassed, easy to play, difficult to master.

My favorite was the Randall Cook variant for old school Macs that taunted you with various sound effects, had weird-assed block shapes, and lied to you in the Next Block window. The best part was when you lost and the game played Hudson's "Game over man!" quote from aliens.
