    I voted for tetris. Tetris is still an awesome game to play to this day. Pong's fun to play too, but Tetris is better.

    it just depends on what you like style wise.
    Pong is more of planning out the next move
    Tetris is more of planning out the best way to destroy a line (or more)

    These are just my opinions (I voted for Pong)

    In my opinion, pong sucks. I have wasted much of my life away playing tetris. Great game, spawned many a great clones too. Dr mario was great as well. Columns was good too.
    Oi Oi Oi!!!!

    I can't believe that Pong is winning the poll. Too bad Tetris is more popular in the real world.

    And this is what, the fantasy world?

    Pong rocks. Simplicity at its finest; pure gameplay, no frills.
    If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is around to see it, do the other trees make fun of it?

    I voted for Pong. Tetris is really dull. WOW! Falling blocks!

    12 : 12 after my vote. Seems like both games are equally fun
    ...actually, they get boring after a while. It isn't exactly any variation...

    Tetris is awesome. I have been able to get a high score of just over 30000 points in the last couple months....and that is freakin hard to get....I havent been able to get it again....my last high score a couple weeks ago was 25000. tetris is awesome. the highest level i have gotten to is 17......that level is insane....the blocks move incredibly fast its hard to get them placed where you want them.......its like there is no tomorrow....

    tetris is insane at the higher levels....if only it would let me START at the higher levels (e.g. levels higher than 9) so I could train on them.....

    Hold down the 'a' button while choosing the level and it will add 10. Thus choose level 6 and hold 'a' while pressing start to play level 16.

    I've made it to from level 0 to 4 lines in level 19. I used to practice on level 19, then the other levels seemed really slow.

    I am using TI-85 Tetris....on my graphing calculator....so the max level it lets me start on (that i know of.....maybe if i randomly press keys something will happen) is level 9, so that is what I practice on. All the other levels below that seem really slow now. The highest level I have been able to get to is level 17.....

    If I could start on a higher level than 9 and practice on higher levels than i might be able to get to level 20-somethin....
