The past few years have seen a lot of classic titles get 21st-Century updates – Shadowrun, Deus Ex and Bionic Commando spring to mind – and it would be fair to say that these titles are met with at best mixed reviews.

Tetris [Game Boy]

One thing that always struck me as peculiar about Tetris is the unnervingly universal appeal. I’m yet to meet somebody who actively dislikes Tetris.
