Why Minecraft Is The Most Important Game Of The Decade

EDGE- For some time, I’ve wanted to write down my thoughts and reactions to Minecraft, but for the most part I felt it wasn’t necessary. I felt people already understood why Minecraft was such a wonderful and important game, and that the reasons why I think it is great were fairly common. Recently, however, while having dinner with some friends, I was surprised when one of them expressed appreciation for Minecraft, but then followed it by saying that he didn’t really understand what it was that made it so enthralling.

I also love Minecraft. I think that it is a gaming masterpiece. It is a landmark videogame that has transformed the way we think about games, and I suspect that over time it will prove itself to be at least as important to the history of game development as GTAIII.

I'll go with, "Oh good grief......"

I enjoy the random-generated terrain and being able to find fantastic vistas in addition to being able to build anything and pretty much go anywhere.

Minecraft has broken through very well, and I love it.

I'd rather play LittleBigPlanet, but that's just me...

PC version with Tekkit = win anything else :/.

That's interesting, because I'm... only moderately interested. You'd think a game of the decade would instill more desire than that.

Perhaps if it came to the PS3 or Vita you'd be interested. Especially if it originated as an exclusive for them. Funny how that works.

Because maybe not every game is for you but for the majority it is very obvious this game is extremely popular. But of course being in your own personal little world you can't seem to grasp that.

Another comment from you that lacks substance, doesn't have any points or reasons. And yet you TRIED to call me out in another article saying the same thing.

It was a good attempt but it is so easy to reverse anything you try and throw at me because well, you're not all there in the head.

Don't worry Ben_Grimm, he treats this place like it's his daily diary who feels it's his need to respond to every topic and monitor all the comments. Just be thankful he's down to 1 bubble.

He's just upset the game is not playable on his favorite systems yet. The game is hugely popular and very addicting. Of course the more popular something is the more scrutiny it gets.
