There happen to be a plethora of puzzle games based on fitting blocks together, it's a concept popular to not only gamers but mathematicians. Heck things such as Tangram puzzles date back to the Song dynasty and the earliest patent for a solid dissection puzzle was made in nineteen seventeen. It's not a new concept nor is it an exclusive one.
The original poster of this thread was talking about Tetris, and as of such I made the comment I did. I honestly don't know why you're being so pissy about this mate. If you'd like to argue further (for whatever reason?) I'd highly suggest doing that via PM rather than publicly.
