Find Me a Find, Catch Me a Catch


Find Me a Find, Catch Me a Catch

I'm don't defined my self as a serious gamer, and especially stay away from online matches. That is why I'm surprised that Noam, who doesn't even qualified as a casual gamer, has become addicted to online Tetris. It's basically your classic brick stacking game, where the twist is you play against an opponent who is matched to you according to your level. Beside the obvious excitement of playing against a real person from somewhere around the world, you also get to see who you play against with his Facebook profile picture.
Now here's the funny thing: Being competitive by nature, in a way we measure ourselves by the person we are matched to, so Noam gets different satisfaction from beating a fat guy, a girl, a Chinese person. I don't play the game, but sometimes wonder who would facebook think is my intellectual equivalent.
