The lights are on
As the co-founder of Apple Computer, an original board member for Electronic Arts, and renowned philanthropist, Steve Wozniak has a lot to be proud of. But "Woz" holds one honor particularly close to his heart: claiming the high score in Nintendo Power magazine for Tetris on the original Game Boy. While in Montreal for the Thief cover story, we ran into Steve Wozniak and he allowed us to invade his hotel room for an interview. Sitting on his bed was a special edition Game Boy Light with an Astro Boy skin. He was more than happy to show us his Tetris skills.
Watch the video below to learn how Steve Wozniak became the king of Tetris in Nintendo Power and how he used the game to create a bond between Russia's Mikhail Gorbachev and George H.W. Bush.
To learn more about Steve Wozniak, the development of Breakout for Atari with Steve Jobs, and how he designed the Apple II, read the article and watch the videos in the latest edition of Game Informer.

Tetris is one of those games that will never get old.
That was a great video.
Yeah, I was pretty much smiling for that whole video. ^_^
My life is now complete.
Pssh... He can't be Better than Me... L.B.V.S ?!
This guys a too cool! His gameboy is awesome!
I ran into him once in San Francisco he was right in front of me in line for a concert, I nearly wet myself.
That's ridiculous! He's playing while talking and he's flipping around the Game Boy like it doesn't matter! This Steve guy is good!
Tetris and Street Fighter are the 2 games I always need to have. I have played them on every system imaginable.
No wonder he's got the high score.... I get the feeling that he spends all of his time staring at that Gameboy....
Like a boss.
These years no other games than this can make me so dedicated...Oh and aslo Age of Wushu.
