#5 Tetris

The original Nintendo, Game Boys, Cell Phones, Ipods, TI-83's, and nearly all electronic devices with a liquid-crystal-display share one thing in common...


Alexey Pajitnov is frankly a god. As creator of the world's favorite puzzle-video game, he is responsible for entertaining us in math class, at the auto-mechanic, and even while sitting on our snack-food-covered couch at home with his colorful designs and witty interpretations of the Nutcracker soundtrack.

Outside of maybe Sputnik and Vodka, Tetris is the best thing to come out of Mother Russia and we have one man to thank for that,
Alexey Pajitnov.

Thanks Alexey. If we ever meet up, the first round's on me.
