for those of you who don't know much about amazing things you should know about, the above is a video from minecraft, a funny little sandbox game where you mine and build things block by block...and apart from that, there's not really much to say apart from Shocked

I see that its huge, but the lack of good graphics ruins the appeal of their creativity.
Is there any creative World you can join that aint so 16 bit.

Neutral

contrary to mainstream gaming/game design thought, there's more to games than graphics

I am yet to play this, I want to but I have a feeling it will be boring towards the end, I remember my sim city days (no socieities cause that was ****!!) where the beginning (starting with nothing) was good but the ending was boring

WOW thats the most impressive work of dedication that I've seen since that Dwarf Fortress working calculator that guy did. Can only imagine the time and effort that went into some of those structures.

Just think what would be possible if all these people put their time to curing cancer/stopping aging/fixing the energy crisis lol.

I'm not being negative here but is there a point to all that work? Ok it's impressive but is the only interaction with the landscape walking around and looking at it from different angles?

If so, I'd say this is more art than gaming. But that's not a bad thing. Nice vid anyway.

This is absolutely incredible... Shocked

On the other hand, I very nearly hate these things... I see the amazing work, and then I never want to play minecraft again, because nothing I can do in this game can remotely compare to anything in that video. All I have is a nice mine, a lighthouse, and a piddly little castle Sad.

The use of the Inception Soundtrack is very fitting.

Here people have created their own worlds, objects they cannot possibly build in the reality.
This is the wish fulfillment aspect of gaming at it's finest.

The reddit server is not what minecraft is really about. It's a place for people to cooperate and build things they normally can't do themselves.

Now this is what minecraft is all about and its getting more and more things to do and create with every patch.

Regrettably, this.

Don't worry, the castle is really just a reshaped hill with a tower on top, and the lighthouse, though through the clouds, is till unfinished.

Your Brain's Large Apathy perfectly strikes you, wrecking for permanently unfinished projects.

Hehe, yeah survival mode can take out a pretty large chunk of your life even if all you are doing is watching someone else survive. Now if you want to impress me then the reddit server needs to run in survival mode so all the pretty stuff they are building has some meaning due to the difficulty of acquiring building materials and defending against the nastys.
