This paper uses Tetris Effect: The Game that Hypnotized the World by Dan Ackerman to look into Alexey Pajitnov's life during his creation of Tetris. It uses three main points, Pajitnov’s early interest in puzzles, computers, and mathematics, the release of Tetris in 1984, and Pajitnov's move to the United States to explain how Tetris became the game it is today. These three points in Pajitnov's life seem to explain how Tetris gained its fame.
