I don't either. I couple of years ago I was sitting in a classroom where an excited student wanted to show me his version of the Death Star he had built with noting but mined obsidian in Minecraft. He said it took him 8 hours.

Too many aimless, create your own experience, often alpha ("early access"), titles are becoming super popular these days. It's how they make it seem like you're getting "additional" content as opposed to buying into something in the middle of being finished.

It would be nice to see some indie devs release a COMPLETED game and get attention like that.

10 million on mobile + 11 million on PC + 7 million on X360... and lets say the average price paid is 10$...

...280 million dollars for Notch who made minecraft in his basement. (well he doesnt get all of that for himself but still)

So yeah, pretty that amount of money is going right to him. lol
