Dr. Mario and Tetris Attack!

This past Thanksgiving (November 22, 2007) was spent at my in-laws house, and a great time was had by all. Good food, great time with family, and all in the name of giving thanks to Christ. I could do with more of that.

As far as gaming goes, some cousins brought over the Wii and the latest Guitar Hero game (he had Guitar Hero III, I think). My daughter enjoyed dancing to that. We even busted out a little DDR. What better way to work off a little turkey?

What I found interesting, however, was not with the new but with the old. They also hooked up a SNES and had Dr. Mario and Tetris Attack! going. Both my mother and father-in-law love Dr. Mario; I’ve been told by reliable sources that they’ve been known to play for hours.

As far as Tetris Attack!, I think I’ll stick to plain ol’ Tetris. I didn’t really enjoy it that much – I enjoy the blocks coming down rather than coming up. But, to each his own. (It should be noted that this inspired me to play Tetris with my wife the next day.)

For the record, I stunk at both games. With a little practice I know I would start to enjoy them – but not yet.
