Russia's greatest achievement - Tetris?

In 1984, Alexey Pajitnov, a video game designer and computer engineer developed Tetris, a game still played by millions of people today. In the decades since, it's taken on a variety of different forms - recently, in the case of Tetris Effect, you could play the game using Sony's virtual reality technology, and to brilliant effect. And most recently, Nintendo released the title Tetris 99, a battle royale style take on the puzzler, in which 99 players from all over the world battle it out to see who can be the last player "standing".

Even if you're not a traditional video game player, I'm sure you've played Tetris at some point in your life, or at least know about it.

I'm not kidding here, and I've said it before, if you look deep down in your soul you'll realize that Romanians are master race.

Russia's greatest achievement was taking Croatia to penalties at the WC.

Speaking of games, a Russian invented the mafia game, too.

He even answered questions in the AMA section of mafia universe:

The 18th century had these polymaths and Lomonosov from Russia was one.

I only recently found out that it was important to build highrises of 3 or 4 blocks in order to score more points, btw. I guess even when playing in my late teens I would just try to get rid of the blocks as quickly as possible.

Mendeleev, Dostoyevsky and Tolstoy are my top 3 greatest Russians of all time, and Peter the Great their greatest ruler ever.

Also the Romanian diplomat and prince, Antioh Cantemir, is considered "the father of Russian poetry" and "used his classical education to assist Peter the Great's programme of modernizing and westernizing Russian culture"

So don't mention it Dima!

Tetris is actually fun to play.

Tolstoy wrote a bunch of boring books.

Might be to some people but it's one of the worst games ever as far as I'm concerned. Maybe I'm missing the fun parts
