«Effect of Tetris» is the actual name for what happens to the human brain after playing a game of «Tetris», or any other game for a long time. The human brain begins to see elements of the game everywhere, even when the person stops playing. Long enough, the players started to report that they see figures from the game «Tetris» for several hours after the game.

In 2000, a study at Harvard showed that 60 percent of subjects who played in the «Tetris» 7 hours per day, a few hours after the game continued to see falling blocks. «Effect of Tetris» also reflected in the fact that the player thinks about the game or becoming more observant, looking at objects in real life.
