I picked up Minecraft a few days ago. Being that I was entirely behind the curve on this game I decided to hold out a little longer. I figured with each patch the game would just get better and better so waiting would be good. Since I have no earlier Minecraft to compare it to all I can say is the game was worth the wait. Minecraft is fantastic.

First off the game just feels right. The movement is right, the mining is right and the graphics are beautiful. Climbing up on top of a mountain for the first time and looking out is really incredible. After being in continuous development for a few years now, it makes sense the game is as polished as it is.

I am playing survival mode right now and am having fun with that. The first few days with it I have learned how to build a house, what you can use wood for, that ho's do have a purpose and have started the process of breeding animals.

The game is harder than I imagined. Creepers are more than annoying, if not frustrating at times. Its not too hard to rebuild what they destroy. But Creeper explosions are really dis-heartening when they blow up your breeding pen.

That said, last night @panickedthumb and I started a multi-player game and that has been fun. I imagine there will be a shared Cheerful Ghost server at some point too.

I've had a harder time since they implemented so many crafting updates. I played it when you could just make pretty basic tools, even though you could make pictures, book cases, and record players at that point (I think). Now with all the alchemy and everything it's a little daunting, but for just exploring and looking through caves it can't be beat.

So far, I am just doing the basic stuff. I might check in to Alchemy, I might not. Having fun so far!

I agree with both of you. It's gotten too many updates/items and it feels right. Minecraft never quite hooked me the way it did others but I'm planning to revisit at some point.

Its really fun, I am not sure if its a passing thing or will stick with me, but so far lots of fun.

J I think its something that comes and goes. It'll wear you out but if you participate in ANY of the mods for this game or any retextures. You will find yourself coming back again and again.
