Personally i have lost many days of my life devoted to this horribly addicting game, but if we look at it to the side, away from all the hype, is the core game actually good?
Personally i'm going to say yes, but i'm sure there are many that will completely disagree with me.
Reasons why i think yes.
-Sense of accomplishment looking at what you've built.
-great outlet for artists
But there are also many reason why it's not to be admired.
- poor graphics
-very resource hungry for what it is
-still in beta (it's been nearly a year? and with the amount of people that have it, surely it can be released.)
Looking past it's fault it is actually a good, fun game for the price.
I commend thee Notch and the team at Mojang on a fantastic Indie game.
