- Look at this April 6
Who says video games are just for basement-dwelling nerds? On Saturday, Drexel University professor Frank Lee and about 100 others played the largest Tetris game ever on the facade of Philadelphia's 29-story Cira Centre.
"Technology has sort of made us isolated from each other," Lee, head of the university's Entrepreneurial Game Studio, told The New York Times. "I want us to be with each other and play with each other."
The gargantuan game kicked off Philly Tech Week 2014. And in case you were wondering: Yes, they had permission to light up the front of the skyscraper with the game's iconic colored blocks.
Here's another look, this time complete with the game's distinctive music.--Jon Terbush
