This is one game that I am starting to think tells me that I am old; I look at this and, one on level, appreciate the simplicity, but on the other, I just ask myself, 'what is the appeal?'
I felt the same way, until I played it.

It's basically LEGO on a computer, but a bit more dynamic than that, since there is a living world around you.

Plus, there is the exploration aspect and RPG mechanics, which add some appeal.

The nice thing about it is that you can play however you want. If you just want to build, then you can build. If you like fighting monsters and exploring, you can do that, too. If all you want to do is look for mines and collect loot, that's also fine. Or you can combine any or all of those. It's your choice.

Re: Minecraft

Robert pretty well summed it up. I've yet to find another game that offers so many different play styles.

And yes, I do agree the graphics are pretty simplistic. One of the reasons I use a higher rez texturepack.

Re: Minecraft

Yeah, the game is what you make of it. You basically create your own experiences. Once you really start playing, you don't really notice the simplicities so much.

Re: Minecraft

I'm just a bit curious where you manage to get all the materials you use for all these projects? Whenever I'm on at the same time as you, you're always building, not mining. Nonetheless, very cool!

Re: Minecraft

Well, he does have op powers, so... *cough*

Not saying he isn't doing it legit, though. It's not like I am watching.

That would be nice. I *really* hate shearing sheep now! Baa! Baa! BAA! BAABAABAA!!!! That's the main reason I've been slow to finish the airport, or at least get it to a respectable stage.

Re: Minecraft

And somehow you're able to do it *and* raise a family. I guess 3 kids (including a very active 4 year old) kinda tips the scales for myself.

Re: Minecraft

If you look over by the runway, I've finished the fuselage of a 747. Have to add the wings and gear, and furnish the inside, but at least I'm pretty much done with shearing all those sheep!
