Minecraft: If You Build It, They Will Come (Hooked Gamers)

The act of digging is a hearty, working man's chore. It is the root of discovery that ignited the resourceful nature of the human race. This primal act lies in the very foundation of Minecraft, a game that was itself dug up from the indie soils and thrust upwards at the sun. Minecraft has earned a legacy through subverting the rules to success, proving that it is possible to sell millions of copies without the need for an overwhelming ad campaign. Success does not naturally cave into quality though, so is this gaming phenomenon's 1.0 version everything it should be? (Minecraft, PC) 10/10

"it is a community and an idea. One that will spur on new types of games"
Err.... not really. Dwarf Fortress was the first game of that type, so it gets the credit for "spur[ring] on new types of games" because it "spur[red] on" the creation of Minecraft.

But yeah Minecraft is fantastic. It would be a LOT better though if Notch would stop going on holiday constantly lol (imagine Terraria or Dwarf Fortress levels of content within Minecraft).
