These are brilliant. I love the commentary, which is so fantastically boring ("and there's another Tetris for Joseph!"), very much early Alan Partridge doing football commentary. Then the actual skill of it all, the simplicity, the beauty of watching the game being played in the most competent way. The niceness of it all. The soundtrack bubbling away in the background. Yes.

I've been watching these too, it felt great when Joseph won this year; I love that, if you pretend you don't know what the word 'Tetris' means, the commentary becomes like Numberwang.

I didn't watch the whole thing, I'm not mental, but when it gets crazy fast at the end it's actually surprisingly exciting and then really very sweet.

The way the kid holds the controller is insane.

Yeah I do skip to the end of these.

I think controller stance might be part of "hypertapping".

Christ. I don't know if the speeds are the same in Tetris Effect but I start to lose at speed 12...

Oddly memorising this.

Check out some of the Awesome Games Done Quick Runs of Tetris Grandmaster, whilst not as pure the feats on display are astounding.

I played Tetris with your mum, by which I mean I filled her gap with my Tetromino, then I fucking disappeared.
