"Tetris" - one of the most popular video games of all time. This fall, an analogue of the game will be released on the PlayStation 4, and it will use a phenomenon that is called "Tetris Effect". Actually, that's how the game will be called: "Tetris Effect". More details about the game itself will be discussed at E3, and we will tell about the phenomenon.
"Tetris effect" - is the actual name for what happens to the human brain after a game of "Tetris" or any other game for a long time. The human brain begins to see the elements of the game everywhere, even when a person ceases to play. Long enough players began to report that they see the figure of the game "Tetris" for several hours after the end of the game.
In 2000, a study at Harvard University found that 60 percent of the subjects who played "Tetris" for 7 hours a day, a few hours after the game continued to see falling blocks.
