I would hate it if all the hardcore games just went away and there were just minecraft clones everywhere :S

Well written article, imo, don't know why it isn't getting more heat.

I guess people can't be bothered to read stuff if it doesn't have something to do with the console war lol

This is an honest question, im not bashing the game, but what is the point of Minecraft? I played it at E3 on one of the Xperia Play demo's and it was the only game that didn't keep my interest. Let alone no one else wanted to touch it, all the other demos had people standing in line.

Like is it simply just a sandbox game to build and make stuff? Basically a blocky version of LBP?

just a huge time killer, nothing more... it's like a lego game without physics (like you can make a big hole in a building, and nothing happens...). To me and many people it just seems like really pointless time killing, since you can do all that in a simple level editor and so much faster. There are some simple gameplay elements like killing enemies at night, but it is so basic, that this game should come out in the 90s, but all the fake hype made it so special (at least for some... mostly nerds :D )

If it is then I better start looking for a replacement hobby...
