Best Version of Tetris

There are sooooo many versions of Tetris out there! My co worker and I got into a debate during lunch this afternoon about what was the best version of Tetris out there. I said it was the original NES version and he said it was Tetris DS.

Who is right? What is the best version of Tetris out there?

Re: Best Version of Tetris

My wife's preferred tetris is Tetris DX for the Gameboy Color...

Hasn't liked any of them since.

Re: Best Version of Tetris

For me it's gotta be the original arcade version. Loved it, especially the little stats bar graph at the side telling you how many of each shape you've encountered!

Re: Best Version of Tetris

I think the original is the best.

Some of the later ones added too much, like continuous rotation, seeing the next 4 pieces, etc.

Back in my day, it was set and only knew one piece ahead!

Was there an actual arcade version of it or was it just the arcade version that you played at home?

Re: Best Version of Tetris

It was the actual arcade version by Atari, played on Great Yarmouth sefront and it must have been late 80's early 90's

Can't find much on it on the net, it had lot's of character with the famous music and dancing russians inbteween the arcade modes levels

Hahaha that sounds awesome! I just found an online version with an awesome version of the Tetris theme...kind of like a rock version that you would hear at a concert. Let me know if you want the link to it!
