Larisa, 31:“ When home computers still were a rarity, I adored electronic „ Tetris “. Took it with itself in the road, constantly played houses.

Made a wish and gave itself installation: I will reach it - that level - it will be executed. Then „ Tetris “ broke, and I did not begin to buy new. But when I had a computer, again conceived a liking for toys. I am not captured at all by games with the virtual worlds, realistic characters and difficult graphics. It is a pity for time. Simple game can be switched off at any time and to lose not offensively. Solitaires and „ balls “ for me - only a way for a while to retire into oneself, to distract then to return to affairs“.

With Larisa. Their recent experiment showed that the tetris softens manifestations of a post-traumatic syndrome and fights with unpleasant memoirs.
