12 import games I bought in 2012 but didn't tell you about until now: Tetris (GameBoy)

Of all the games that will be featured in this series of posts, this is likely to be the most boring--or maybe I should say least interesting?


So, why did I decide to include it? Because I rather like its bold, red-and-blue box art, that's why.


Speaking of which, the box art you see in the photos above is chiefly responsible for me picking up the Japanese, rather than the North American, version of "GameBoy Tetris" earlier this year.


Another reason, of course, is that I couldn't find the copy that came with the original GameBoy I dug out of my childhood closet shortly after I rang in 2012--and, really, you can't have an OG GameBoy without also having a copy of Tetris, can you?

Ahhhhhh xD I've alwayse been bad at Tetris. Even back then on the Gamboy Classic (you know, the b/w-display one, or should I say black/green...).

Oh and Bryan, yesterday I finally got my Wii U and me and my boyfriend just can't stop playing Nintendo Land! It's so much fun and the MiiVerse is great! It's kinda like the Nintendo Mail-thingy on the 3DS only with community. Love it! And I love to draw posts :D
Uhm may I ask if you watched the Animal Crossing movie yet? :)
Merry Christmas Bryan!

Really? That's too bad! I've always been OK at Tetris. Even if I wasn't, though, I'd probably still like the game :)

Oh, that's great, Lizzi! Which Nintendo Land mini-game is your favorite at the moment--if you have one?


As for the AC movie: Not yet :( Maybe this coming week?

Hmm... I really like the Metroid-coop-game and the balloon-single-game. :D

Lizzi said...

Oh I love Tetris :)

Oh, I'm especially happy to hear you like the Balloon Fight/Trip game, Lizzi! That's the one I'm most looking forward to playing, for some reason.

Well, that's good to hear!

Cool box art! ^^/ I remember getting my game boy and for a few months the only game I had was Tetris so I played it to death! lol

I think I was in the same boat, Marty--got my GameBoy and then didn't get another game for quite some time. I wonder how many people only ever owned Tetris (and nothing else) for their GameBoy?

I can't remember if Tetris was my first game, but I have played enough versions of it haha
Whenever I start stacking the dishwasher I start thinking of it as Tetris and the main theme starts playing in my head sometimes LOL

thegaygamer.com said...

Yes, there definitely are a good number of Tetris releases/sequels/etc. out there, aren't there? I've played a fair few myself :) Also, I love your story about thinking of the Tetris theme song while stacking dishes!

Lizzi said...

I just realized that this IS the Gameboy Classic Tetris I was talking about.
Whooops... ^^
