Notable is #18. Tetris was invented by Alexei Pajitnov in 1984 while working for the Academy of Science of the USSR. The name, Tetris, comes from the Greek word for four as all seven pieces contain four blocks. This was the first entertainment software exported from USSR to the United States. Tetris helped launched Nintendo’s handheld console, the Game Boy, as the perfect game to be played on the go.
