Riotboy: My 6 yr. old daughter loves that game she plays it on her iPod. I played the demo on Xbox 360 it was pretty, meh.

/looks like it was made for the Atari 2600

This is also why I don't read many books, the cover art is usually very crappy.

VvonderJesus: skinink: Is this a grind type game like EverQuest?

It's more like a "do whatever the fark you want" type game. You collect materials to build stuff, and the rest is up to you. It's a great game if you just want to relax or blow off steam.

I was also a huge minecraft basher, until it came on the 360. Achievement Hunter started doing let's plays on minecraft and I tried it out shortly afterwards. It's really just a great game because you make your own objectives and have unlimited amount of time to complete them.

So it's a job you don't get paid for, then.

Never played it (too hard on the eyes is a nonstarter) but I stumbled across a YouTube video where some guy was hardcore into playing The Hunger Games in Minecraft. Looked like he had devoted dozens of hours playing this sub-game. I found the level of nerdiness fascinating; he was like a Russian doll nerd, you open him up and there is another nerd inside and another and another.

I crapped on Minecraft for two years without ever playing it, and then I finally broke down and started about three weeks ago.  I played for 10 hours straight during my first session.  There's something strangely addictive about it.  Before I learned how to build a bed, I got lost easily, so I built a 3 mile high lit tower I could see from anywhere on the map to find my way back home at night to the spawn point.

I also spent three hours steadily filling in a hole at the bottom of a cave so I could make my superman fortress.  Then I decided I wanted to run a creek through it, which took another three hours.  Then I wanted the top half of the cave to be made entirely of glass, and I'm about 14 hours into that an only halfway finished.

Needless to say, it is a fantastic time-waster.
