Minecraft

What is it that people like so much about this game?  Seriously. You can build a lot of things. Creativity abounds. I can understand that, but the graphics! I have a hard time watching it. Maybe I’m spoiled on next gen games. I don’t know.

My son, on the other hand, absolutely loves it. He plays it on his computer and his Kindle.  He’s 9 years old.  Maybe that’s part of It?  The learning curve is not as difficult as some other games.

I prefer Landmark. It’s a gorgeous game, and you can build anything in it. Yes, it’s difficult to make beautiful works of art, but it’s fun trying. You should see some of the things people have made.  It’s unbelievable.

There is some nostalgia around Minecraft. I can admit that.  The 8-bit graphics bring back some fond memories of course. Okay, perhaps it’s more like 16-bit.  Still. I would have a hard time playing it.

Maybe one day? Nah, probably not.
