Minecraft is not the best game in the world. Yet.
Minecraft has become a sensation all over the net and within the gaming community and has already been featured in PC Gamer and Penny Arcade. Though it’s only a year old, this game has reached one of the top slots and has been called “the best game in the world”.
The basis of the game is to build and survive; building is rather easy. The simple game play makes building some of the most spectacular things easy. Time consuming, yes. Aggravating, yes. Architecturally difficult, yes but still easy. Clicking a single button to place a block, simple! Not only are you creating buildings, you can make armor, food, and little tidbits to put in your new structure(s). Meanwhile, while everything that you can create is impressive how you customize in this game is out of this world. It is possible to customize every minuscule detail of your character to your specifications, what else is there in life? Given, you have to use a different program, but in retrospect it will be well worth the extra effort. Should you not feel like doing this, go to the Minecraft forums and get one there. Simple!
Now that we’re off that tangent, back to gameplay goodness. Then comes nightfall, and the entire world makes a 180 which causes zombies, skeletons, creepers and spiders to spawn and begin to stalk you. They want your soul, your brains, or to simply smash you into dust. In order to properly obliterate these guys, by all means, make a sword to defend yourself which normally works well (if you’re lucky). However, the smartest course of action for those of you terrified of boo gags, (myself included), is to build a safe haven. From there, just wait until morning and the sun will burn the bastards, except the spiders who are bigger bastards. Regretfully or preferably (whichever you prefer) the spiders you will have to just stab to a bloody pulp of nothingness. Basically, Minecraft is like Legos on the computer with a zombie trying to eat your brains. more »
