The first game I ever owned was Tetris for the Game Boy. I sucked back then, and I’m not too hot now, but nearly 30 years later I have a chance to go back to that experience thanks to an 8-bit level in Tetris Effect.

When I'm in the mood to play a video game, I'll grab my Switch, a PS4 controller, maybe my Xbox One controller or my 3DS or perhaps my phone. I've got lists of games I'm eager to start or continue on those devices. None of them require me to unwrap the cords of a special headset, attach it to my face, ensure any proprietary controllers are charged and block myself off from my co-workers, family or all of my virtual pals on social media.
Tetris Effect takes the pure, near-perfect game design of the classic puzzle game and injects a cocktail of hallucinatory visuals mixed with a sublime soundtrack. It's a refreshing, modern update to a classic with an optional virtual reality component and more than anything, it's also the kind of game that I think we desperately need right now.
