I just watched it in tiny portrait orientation on a phone screen with the volume off but my body still knows to get goosebumps when the people in the crowd start flipping out

I know there was a thread making fun of classic Tetris a while back but I’ve been watching these because they’re way more watchable than TGM for a Tetris amateur and I feel a lot of personality shines through for the players.

Also, it does actually take a lot of skill, although a lot of that skill is getting over the controls, which I think we can all agree weren’t really meant for play at those speeds.

I think their setup is really cool. They have a modified cart that allows them to set seeds and they read the data from the cart to track stats and recreate the graphics and playfield you see on the screen (rather than capture CRT output).

Also I was watching them over Thanksgiving and both my mom and my sister sat down and watched with me.
