I love both equally. I tend to prefer Ms. Pac-Man to the regular Pac-Man though.

I've playing way more Tetris in my lifetime, but I'll go with Pac-Man. You can't be that constant "wakka-wakka" sound.

I found Tetris to be far more addictive.

What, no Astrosmash, PONG, Night Stalker, Lock 'n' Chase, Defender, Galaga, Pitfall, or Frogger? I feel cheated. ;)

Hey Paul, if you ever make the trek to Columbus, Ohio for whatever strange reason would find you in the middle of the state of Ohio... check out their Science and Industry Museum there. It has a complete arcade with the history of the arcade machine. My pals and I (Mark, Tony, and Tom) were amazed at the sheer # of arcade machines and how far back the arcade machine went. How about a black and white, green glitter fiberglass arcade console with a black and white screen, knurled metal dial (no trackball), and the game "PONG" featured? That was just enough to add an "OOoOOOOooOOO" factor alone. Toss in countless games I'd never seen, and some old memories (table top arcade consoles... remember them?), and some new cutting edge stuff, and that's just in one room. For anyone whose ever experienced Chicago's incredible S&I museum, the Columbus one is about the closest I've encountered to it so far in coolness. It might actually, dare I say it, be cooler...

You can download most of these types of games on the web if you look hard enough I have most of them emulated and preserved. It's not against the law anymore... they're simply too old... it's called MAME EMULATOR standing for Multi - Arcade - Machine - Emulator and the games are called can download each individually - and to believe games like space invaders are like 52Kilobytes! It's amazing what little memory they needed in those days...and most will run just fine on ANY pc! - good luck finding the roms these days though - but if you want to email me - I could send you some...I have most of the classics!

I preffer pacman to tetris honestly, however I've found this site related to tetris and it seems to be good to me

Right now I am addicted to Tetris on this high score site:

I also like Pac-Man, but it is not as addicting, I don't think.

What is this then?
