I maxed out NES Tetris - woohoo! This was recorded 8/10/13.
I've been fascinated by the idea of achieving this ever since I first saw a Jonas maxout video from circa 2006. That blew my mind - I marveled that such thing was even possible.
Check out the Tetris documentary Ecstasy of Order (great movie), get yourself a CRT TV, an NES, a copy of Tetris, go for a maxout, and participate in the annual Classic Tetris World Championships (held in October in Portland, OR each year since 2012).
To skip to the level 19 transition: around 8:28 in this video.
Incidentally, my heart rate felt like it had doubled by level 28. Going into level 28, I didn't even need a Tetris to get the maxout, yet I found myself almost dead with a tiny handful of points left to go. That was not so pleasant.
