Evening Reading

by Brian Leahy, Oct 08, 2010 5:00pm PDT

Though I didn't get to talk about Minecraft on Weekend Confirmed, I figured I'd write down my updated (brief) impressions here in ER.

I played Minecraft for about three hours this week and I found myself enjoying the quest for better ore for better items, but eventually grew bored. There just isn't enough "game" in there yet for me to enjoy. I completely understand why people love it for the multiplayer and creation mode, but I hope Notch makes it more of a game.

I came to the conclusion that if Minecraft and Nethack could be combined into some sort of dungeon-crawling, craft-your-items-from the-world-around-you, RPG-type game... well, I would play that game forever and ever.
