    According to wiki Tetris is from 1984 and Columns is from 1989.

    Is it? Interesting; I thought the more complex one would be later - columns works in threes; Tetris works in fours doesn't it?

    Meanwhile... my 8 year old daughter introduced me to a CBBC game a few months ago called Alien Alliance, which also works on the alignment principle.

    Can anyone beat this score on a timed game?

    Play on and off: Counter-Strike: Source, GTA San Andreas (multiplayer mod), Empire Earth. Pretty rubbish at all of them!

    In progress: Half Life 2.

    Have completed Portal and Portal 2, but occasionally dip in to the advanced maps/challenges.

    I've just finished building my new PC. Bought the parts last weekend and just installed Windows and Steam, etc.. Works brilliantly. Railworks on highest settings with everything maxed out at 1920 x 1080 resolution and it is eerily smooth. Like watching a Blu-Ray. And it looks phenominally good. My old laptop couldn't cope with such settings so I got used to it being basic graphics. But this makes it a new game. It was definitely worth the afternoon building it for sure.

    If you Enjoyed Arkham Asylum. Arkham City is currently £9.99 on steam.

    I seriously do recommend it.

    I already have it. Just not completed Asylum yet. My list is those I'm currently playing, although I tend to dip in and out of PC Games. Currently busy with F1 2011. Full race weekends obviously!

    Good to hear you do. When you do play it, the game is fantastic.

    Very fair then really.
