"Tetris" was released on June 6, 1984.  But most of us played the Nintendo version that came out five years later. 

 

The Tetris World Championships still happen every year.  The next one is in Portland this October. 

In 2012 Matthew Buco achieved the highest possible score of 999,999 points in Tetris (NES). He accomplished the feat with only 207 completed lines.
