WC writes: There is no denying that Minecraft has taken the internet by storm. First surfacing in mid-2009, the game went viral at its beta release in 2010. One of the biggest online gaming communities ever sprang up over the space of a couple of years, and we are constantly reminded of the game’s success with some Minecraft videos reaching over 1 million views each on youtube. As more and more features are added by the game’s developers, even more are added by users in the form of mods. This allows players to immensely add to the already-huge array of tools and blocks at the game’s disposal, as well as giving the player characters entirely new features and advantages against their enemy. This raises the question: is having no restrictions a good thing for Minecraft?
