The objectively best (ie. highest skill ceiling) widely available version is TGM3. The best on-topic for /vr/ version is TGM2+.
>>
>>2897424
Favorite version is any that doesn't have block holding. It's bullshit that's an official Tetris feature..

Fave piece is long one of course.

Fave spin off is Tetrisphere.

I like all the music, but pick C most often.

Favorite game type is Type B, 5 high and level 9 in the original. That's some crazy fun trying ti clear the blocks and stay alive.

Block holding raises skill ceiling because it requires more thought and lets you play at higher speeds.
>>
>>2897468
I completely disagree. Being able to get the long piece and just hold it there till you have a Tetris ready almost destroys the game in my opinion.
>>
NES Tengen just because of the dancers and Bradinsky
>>
>>2897475
So I assume you have TGM3 GM status, right?
>>
>>2897489
Where did I imply that? I haven't played that version, but every version of Tetris I've played with block holding I haven't liked it.

If you're some grand master super tetriser and you like block holding then good for you, but I've never liked it.

>sliding, multiple rotations, semi-predictable randomization, holding, etc.
>highest skill ceiling

I would say they added features to make the game more competitive between players. As for the highest skill ceiling, that's up for debate. We still haven't compare playthroughs between different Tetris games.

Tetris Battle Gaiden on Super Famicom is the only game I've ever imported. That shit is crazy fun. Maybe my favorite couch multiplayer game. It's the reason I cut the tabs off my SNES. Granted, it's a very different experience than regular Tetris, but it's super enjoyable.
>>
I really enjoy playing the version of Tetris that's on the Tetris + Dr. Mario SNES cart. My girlfriend plays it with me often. She generally wins (I destroy her in Dr. Mario and Tetris Attack though)
>>
>>2897686

What's so special about it? What sets it apart from regular Tetris?

Also, is there anywhere I can read about the algorithms behind the piece spawning? I noticed that, in the SNES version at least, the game seems to give you more long blocks as you come closer to the top. Am I just imagining it? Is there a percentage behind the pieces and how often they spawn (not sure of a better word to use)?

NES, though I've played a lot of phone versions over the years out of ease and portability

I'm not sure I've played any

The first song on the Game Boy version, the popular one. Always wished it was in the NES version.

It's a 1v1 multiplayer Tetris where you each pick a specific character who has a different set of power-ups that can help you or hurt your opponent. Each character also has different art and music. It leads to a lot of yelling and playful frustration. It's great.
>>
>>2897724

Sounds pretty fun. I'll download the ROM to try it out with my gf. We love blindly trying SNES games.

Cool, enjoy! It's all in Japanese, so I have no idea what anything says, but I can tell you a couple pro tips.

1. Second player's character determines the art and music. Personally, I prefer Wolf Man's music, it's a dope jam.

2. Ninja Kid is incredibly overpowered. My friends and I have a running ban against him, it's practically cheating.

What's a good retro version of Tetris for a beginner? I like Tetris but I'm not very good at it.
>>
>>2897972

The original version. Just play it until you get better. I'm sure there are some people here who can offer some tips, too, but I'm not one.

My only tip is to focus on clearing one line at a time, I guess, and don't hold out for specific pieces. They might not come until it's too late.
>>
>>2897972
I agree with >>2898004

I'd also suggest playing it slow and easy for a while. Tetris is as zen or as stressful as you want it to be.

The original Game Boy version is a real good place to start!
>>

Thanks guys!
So GameBoy and NES are what I'll try.

On NES which is better, the Nintendo or Tengen version?

Something has always just felt... Off... To me about the Nintendo version. I'd say Tengen.

Pajitnov apparently developed the game on some Atari 8-bit Apple // hybrid.

I don't think it counts but my favorite version is Tetris Attack/Panel de Pon Super Bukkake.

The display case is right next to a window, so a lot of those boxes were pretty faded. 2/2

Tengen two player head to head is unmatched.
Not retro but tetris worlds for gamecube was a good time.
>>
loved this one... multiplayer was really fun
>>
I remember a version of Tetris that had an adjustable width, some "special attacks", and a robot on the hud. What version was that?

Googling Tetris and Robot brings no relevant results. I played it in the 90s.

I don't think I see a Tengen Tetris there.

This is the only Tetris variant that was actually fun to play. It's not a replacement, but a compliment to the original. There are several dozen ways to construct perfect squares from tetraminos, and I find this to be both mathematically elegant and a great extension to the rules. The only beef I have with this game is that it favors building squares a little too heavily compared to normal line clears.

Loved both the classic and Next modes as well as the graphics, but the real selling point for me was the ability to use audio CDs as custom soundtracks.

This awesome Tetris variant called Nyet. It allows you to buy powerups, boards and powers.

it can be found on abandonware boards
