This game looks like it belongs in 1982

I do not remotely, even for one second, understand the appeal of this game.

I think these 4 comments pretty much sum it up. It is gorgeous at times and designing&building is fun. It's like playing with legos and exploring. I have a love/hate relationship with Minecraft :)

I'm in the same camp as MTYF - do not get the obsession with this game at all.

What are you guys talking about. This is one of the best games available. Very fun with friends.

So cos you guys don't "get it" and it doesn't have the looks of the top lookers "it's crap" I mean sure I can hardly play it, bores me to death but I understand the appeal and appreciate some of the things that have come out of it. Back when I bought it it made it's 5 quids worth of entertainment (not sure on price now) plus you have a plethora of texture packs you can dl. Community is probs another thing, brings a lot of strangers together under a common goal, it's interesting to say the least on that front ^_^.

Halo 4 just got a competitor for best graphics in 2012

Slowest port ever. I wonder if it will support custom texture packs. The mobile ones do apparently.

Like Kingdom Under Fire and the Conan MMO, this will be delayed so much on 360 because of the way Xbox Live's infrastructure is. Where is the release date? Thank god Valve never bothered trying to bring cross platform play with Portal 2 on 360 because the game still wouldn't be out now.

I doubt it will. It'd be cool but this is MS we're talking about. It certainly won't support higher res packs, even the 32x32 ones or what have you. I use John Smith and that'll never work on 360 because it's double the resolution of standard minecraft.

Graphics are not that great I think.

Initially i didn't like minecraft at all, it just felt like a pointless digital lego, but as they added to the game it gradually turned in to a rpg/lego/adventure/survival game and now i can't stop playing it.

If you like linear games with clear goals and objectives this isn't for you, the fun in this game comes from exploring the enormous world while gathering resources and building the occasional fortress together with a friend or two, it's like you make up your own goals and objectives! ;)

It also has some great mods that add objectives and goals for those who need them.

Ten minutes? Seriously? GTFO dude.

No imagination? You won't enjoy this.

The game is what you make of it.

My 5 and 7 year old play Total Miner which is a rip off of this game on XBL and they absolutely love it!! Can't wait to get them this :D

now all we need is a sequel to the sentinal (sorry if ive spelt it wrong) only i think the last 'the sentinal' game was on the psx or what about a sequel to 'elite', minecraft just has that retro look and feel to it so its hardly supprising lots of people are moaning about it, its not COD for F sake its not all about pretty graphics and nothing else.

Well they should know better. If it's not flashy, doesn't grab you in ten minutes, and doesn't hold your hand through the entire 6 hour experience, it's probably garbage.

ooo lego based game is original, your alright i will sit and play lego blocks with my kids its a thousand times more fun.

I play something for ten minutes if it does not appeal to me, i try not to waste any more time on it, some times i return to a game i thought was shit just to give it a other chance, not this.. LBP is more fun than this.

The game is marmite that i understand.

Anyway, a game can be original and still suck dude.

if this game does'nt appeal to you why comment, i hate football games like fifa but does that mean i have to go on every football games thread and go on about how i think its shite, its pretty simple really, you dont go to your local store and pick up a jar of marmite and start shouting to everyone how much you hate it so why go on threads for games you hate !!

You still don't get it. After ten minutes of gameplay, that is so shocking. Good job.

zomg sequels, rite?

What you're really saying is, "I didn't play this game long enough to learn the first thing about it, but I hate it anyway." We need less sequels and more games that play just like them anyway! Woot!

Maybe you should just stop shittying up the thread for your own amusement.

You know what the funny thing about opinions is? They're opinions, not facts. Some people like it, some don't. I realize this is a bit mind blowing, but, it IS possible for one person to like something and an other to not. Perhaps we could tone down the hateraide brewing in this thread.

I enjoyed playing this game for a few months. While I found it engaging as a free game, my interest waned. It was a great throwback for me to Simcity/Civ but with some fun new twists. However, the honeymoon wore off for me.
