Something for game geeks out there, be it game design or just play

This little piece I just wrote (for sixteen-kilobyte definitions of "little") explains, in great detail, exactly what I feel that Nintendo did right in creating Tetris Attack to make what is possibly one of the best competitive puzzle games ever (IE, for versus mode). It doesn't go into my opinions of the comptuerized opponents in the three versions of the game I've played- that's out of the scope of the node- but it should be an interesting read for anybody as much of a game-geek as I am.
