Minecraft Is Perfect?

Share

With the highly anticipated full release of Minecraft, Eurogamer reviewed it early and gave it a perfect 10 our of 10. The full game will have features like buffing, statistics, and even a defined ending. While, personally, I’m the kind of guy that thinks game are never perfect, Minecraft is certainly cutting it pretty damn close.

The success of Minecraft is not only a display of the games addictive nature and snowball-effect gameplay, but a message to indie developers. In a sea of Grand-Theft-Call-of-Battlefield-Scrolls-3, it seems indie devs never get the attention they deserve, but Minecraft and Mojang are the biggest and brightest hope for indie games. Don’t believe me? Go check out the Minecraft homepage, and look at the sales counter.

Mojang is doing it right. With constant support and community engagement, there’s really no denying it at this point. It’s been a long time coming, but Minecraft is a legitimate zero-to-hero story in the video game industry.

Thanks to Kotaku for the heads up, and make sure to check out Eurogamer’s review of Minecraft.

    Gee, so if I design a mindless mining game which takes no mental stimulation at all, you’re saying my game could also achieve a perfect score?

    matik23:
    Please go and actually PLAY the game, then say that.

  • matik23

    Actually I have played the game. Just because I don’t like it, you automatically assume I’m trolling without experiencing the game?

    If that’s your logic, then I hate skydiving, eating Nigerian food, and riding a unicyle. Those activities also are mind numbing. Fucking moron.

    • Disagreement is fine, but personal insults won’t be tolerated. Cut it out.

    @matik23 100% aggreed
    Not only am I disapointed they gave it 10/10 but the fact they refered to it as a “game” made me question my identity as a gamer. If minecraft is a game then it is the gaming equivalent of lego, as it can only be enjoyed by autistic children. (and seananners)

      I guess only people without any creativity can’t enjoy the game. Fuck you TV.
