Minecraft is a first-person fighter/sandbox construction game created by Mojang AB.
It's Minecraft. I mean. Minecraft. Like, why is this even considered indie anymore? Doesn't matter. Obviously it has to be a good game considering it's literally (look it up) the third most purchased game in the history of games, period. (Should be second considering Wii Sports comes with the Wii, which is second only to Tetris)
Minecraft has given me experiences I wouldn't hope to get from any other game. I will always remember my first time playing with my friends. It's a truly amazing game. And I am optimistic for it's future. I hardly ever give a game a perfect score but the moments to be had in Minecraft and the near infinite replayability with mods is unlike any other. If you somehow haven't tried this game. Do yourself a favor and don't miss this game.
I have played and been thoroughly entertained by Minecraft since soon after it went into Beta and play it loyally to this day. I believe it to be a staple in any gamer's library and it's success the beginning of the indie era of gaming that this community has grown from.
Excellent game, perfect 10, and no im no fanboy, this game is excellent, its MY world, i can build whatever i want, has amazing ambient, excellent replayability, you can MOD THE HECK OUT OF THIS GAME unlike 99% of the games out there that at most only support more than 5 mods RARELY, sure the most of the monsters are weird, but you can replace them with mods too.
Also this game has AMAZING BREATHTAKING landscapes (even better with mods), and most beautiful areas than any seen on 99% of the other games.
Also this game is an amazing HORROR game, simply turn off the sucky soundtrack (pretty much, besides the MP BS with randoms, the only thing that sucks completely from the game, and breaks the ambient the game creates) and change it with horror music or nothing at all, go to a dark cavern or wander at night, or somply stay in your house while listening to the creatures outside (with mods it gets 10000x better). In all honesty this game is WAY WAY better and scarier than the actual "horror" games out there, namely RUBBISH like RE4, or BORING REPETITIVE games like slender, or games that get tiresome and predictable after a while like containment breach, sure there are good horror games out there, but not many, and this game, minecraft succeeded, without even being horror game, a lot more than 99% of modern horror games, and is way more interesting than them... hey what horror game makes you compete against hunger and make you actually SURVIVE, not just shoot the heck out of enemies, on the other hand there are good games like penumbra, amnesia, and actual shooter games that are good horror games, but minecraft is scarier than most horror games out there, good or bad ones.
Sure without mods the game gets dull and uninterestiung quickly, but with them the game gets MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH BETTER... too bad some mods conflict and cause problems. I dont like minecraft without mods either. But before minecraft spawned minecraft rippoffs this game was the best game... about that game that came before minecraft as some individual said in the comments, does that game have monsters? flawless mod support? replayability? perfect ambientation? I dont think so... thats more like some random uninteresting arcade game...
If you hate this game you SERIOUSLY have some sort of brain damage, or you just want the same mmo ******** over and over again or just linear shoot shoot and shoot... or are a psychopath scumbag and the cancer of the gaming community hating on anything popular and just looking for an excuse to pick a fight with randoms... or maybe a cynic or a hipster?
As for the people that gave this a 1, they are either just retard trolls and dumb haters or genuinely stupid, as for the people who say this game is boring and "where's the fun in this game" well you tell me, bet you love mmo games like team craptress or league of trollers or pretty much 99% of that online mp rubbish... those games DO SUCK *** BADLY and THOSE are REAL BOOOOORING games, not to mention REPETITIVE, and fanboys like yourselves overhype that rubbish... and as for the people that whine about the graphics go back to your call of poopy noobs, only airhead people rate games based on graphics... unless the graphics were GENUINELY AWFUL (and not even then its a valid rate), but minecraft graphics arent terrible, they might not be call of poopy or shittyfield but they arent atari lynx either... and anyway, if you dont like the graphics, unlike your call of poopy or team craptress, you can MOD THE HELL OUT OF THIS GAME, and you can put mods that make it look hyper realistic (confirmed by squares, but even then someday someone will make a mod to change that, if it doesnt exist now, not that i care, i dont mind the blocky landscape at all).
