    Minecraft - Is it worth playing?


    0 Not allowed!
    What is with Minecraft? Looks sh*t and yet it's so popular.

    Why?

    Anyone play?

    Is it fun?

      My son is absolutely addicted to it.

      The thing that pisses me off about it is that the XBox version isn't compatible with the Java versions running on PC/Mac - they diversified and followed different paths a couple of years ago. What the f*ck is the point of that?

      Calderon is the type of guy that if your daughter married, you would worry that she was not good enough for him.

      It seems a bit pointless, my eldest daughter was addicted. Watch a couple of stampy longhead videos, you will soon lose interest due to his annoying voice.

      Graphics are pants, 9-12 year olds seem to love it. Books abound on tactics etc. Give it another 6 months.

      "I wasted £100 on a hotel room, another £100 on drink, whole weekend a complete waste of money, all in all the worst away day iv'e ever had ever. i can handle wasting good money, but seeing palace players getting laughed at by that lot, being laughed at as we leave the ground, that f***ing hurts, feel numb today, feel totaly numb with shock, going to take a long time to get over this one."

      It's a bit of a phenomenon that you just aren't going to get unless you are under 16 at the moment.

      It's a massive business though, with a whole range of merchandise and a film planned for next year.

      Microsoft are buying Mojang, who developed the game under a guy known as Notch, for $2 billion. The ironic thing about that being Notch is famously anti mega corporations and pulled out of a deal of making a version for the 'occulus' when Facebook purchased them, calling Facebook 'creepy'. But hey who can blame the guy, I would do literally anything for $2billion.

      In terms of the game I think there is an adventure mode where you have to build up and protect your base but most people just play it in a free roam mode and use it as a big ideas lego set where you can create whatever you want. Apparently some schools are thinking about using it to encourage creative thinking from students.

      My SEVEN year old is addicted to it and my three year old has been known to play it on the iPad. Not properly mind - but enough for her to demand it off me too often

      My 6 year old is addicted to it. It's Lego on a computer essentially. It's a cheaper alternative to actually buying and playing Lego with your children.

      Currently, the over priced minecraft torch purchased from Amazon is Lost. Crisis doesn't even cover the reaction.

      There is also a driving game called Blocky Roads available as an app. It's basically a complete Rip off of minecraft but a shit driving game as well.

      The kids absolutely love it <shrugs>
