As mentioned last week, my commentary as part of the Vilcek Foundation's article on Tetris and its creator, Alexey Pajitnov, was published. As also mentioned - and something that I typically like to do anyway - I said I would publish the extended commentary that did not fit in the article. Check it out below, where the questioner is Joyce Li and the answers were supplied by me, Bill Loguidice:
OK, maybe not, but I still had the distinct pleasure of providing some commentary for a wonderful new feature article featuring Tetris creator, Alexey Pajitnov, entitled, Alexey Pajitnov's Tetris Plays It Forward-Now an App Fave. The article was written by Joyce Li for the Vilcek Foundation's Fall 2010 newsletter. At some point soon I'll release the rest of the commentary I provided that didn't make it into the article. Enjoy!

What are your thoughts on Tetris? Is it one of the world's greatest games? Why or why not?

The last "fun" watch I got, save for a relatively recent MP3/WMA/Voice Recorder/FM Radio/512MB Storage/USB watch, was a Nintendo Tetris watch, which I believe I got around 1998. I just found out about this new watch from Fossil, based around Atari's Centipede (and here are the others). Unfortunately, unlike the classic watches of old - like the ones from the early 80's based around Pac-Man and Space Invaders - you can't actually play this one. That and the high price make this a bit of a dissapointment, despite being well designed and in color. I'll take a classic 70's/80's computer, red LED or playable game watch any day over this, though if I ever saw it cheap enough...
