If you liked playing with Legos as a kid, you will love this game. It is basically an endless Lego set. With monsters that try to kill you!

Really looking forward to some spare time to play Minecraft!

You know, I think I should try this again with your mindset. I went in looking for a game, I need to go into it looking for a lego simulator.

Depending on when you played it last, the "game" portion has filled quite a bit. I still play it primarily as a creative outlet though. :) Although I play on a survival server (part of the fun for me is building a "secure" base. Also: Monster traps!) I actually run my own server if you're interested. I use to have a pretty active, although small, player base but then our server took an arrow to the knee (damn you Skyrim!) and now it's usually empty.

Nice use of the meme :)

Yeah I had heard it was fleshed out a bit. I'll give it another shot sometime.

Also, if you want something that's a little more "gamey" but still has a creative element to it, you should look into Terraria. You can still build stuff but it focuses more on the adventure/platforming aspect of the game.

I finally played Minecraft around Thanksgiving of last year (only months ago). It is a great and addictive game, but I think my thought that stands out the most is that I HATE Creepers and lava! LOL I think that's one reason...no two reasons...why I got away from it. The part of it I most enjoyed was exploring new areas (caves). I still have a Notepad file of locations I saved of other caverns to explore (locations marked by checking out coordinates in Debug mode). I enchanted my sword and now it's gotten too expensive to repair (about 30 levels). I think Terraria took me away from Minecraft as well. I think I was also disappointed because I was always looking for more diamond, I could never have enough diamond! Still, it is a great game.

As I mentioned above (two years ago!) I use to run a server. I kept it mostly vanilla but one of the few mod's i did run was called "CreeperHeal." Basically, creepers still exploded and damaged surrounding blocks but that damage would automatically repair itself over the course of a few minutes. I liked it because it made Creepers a LOT less annoying but still kept them dangerous.
