    So which Tetris piece did you choose? Was it about looks? personality? Is it more than a feeling?

    In case you cant put each letter to its shape in your mind, heres what each represents;

    I

    L

    T

    Edit: Thank you sonicandtails for teaching me the currect way to draw tetris pieces, your knowledge and mastery of the etiquette of block design is truely awe inspiring

    The line is the most useful and desirable of all pieces. The block can be OK. The squiggles are kinda annoying. The L's are pretty chill and remind me of chess.

    But the line is the best, hands down.

    My favorite piece?
    The last one I place down before winning.
    ...but since that wasn't an option, I voted for the I since it's the most useful by far.

    I do not blieve the design of that piece is from an authorized edition of tetris, and may actually infringe on Nintendo's and/or Alexey Pajitnov's copyright/pantent/personal space or some such.

    It has to be the line. The number of times I've needed one and it hasn't come down.

    The T is the coolest piece BY FAR ... because it can do the T-Spin!

    "Tall Slender I"?! It's called a stick. Sheesh.

    And sure, the stick is great for tetrises, but how many times have I been caught stacking too high and the stick has been nowhere to be seen? Far too often.

    The L and the J are my favorite, probably. I can hardly think of any situations where I've been screwed by an L or a J and forced to leave a gap. Plus, they're great for downstacking. Out of the two, I'd have to pick the L as my favorite just because that's the kind of mood I'm in right now.

    T is also great, but it's been left off the poll for some reason. What a sham.

    No, it's a real piece. There's both Z and S pieces in real tetris. All possible shapes made with 4 conjoined blocks are in there.
