    Hopefully this means that the minecraft fad is near its end.

    Such a horrible game.

    For people with an imagination and creativity, easily the greatest game ever made, for accountants, not so much.

    Pretty sure your statement is the exact opposite. A creative person would find the extreme repetition in minecraft to be a futile exercise.

    The “game” is perfectly suited for Accountant and programmer INTJ-type people with focus driven autistic tendencies.

    I gather your not fond of Minecraft, why don’t you like it?

    If I wanted to play with blocks I’d play with (and still do *blush*) lego. Lego Is waaaaay better.

    I find it funny people their opinions into their name to make a double statement. It really isn’t necessary, just saying.

    people put their*

    Those people that say its very repetitive actually have no creativity because all they will do is build a 9×9 wooden house and think that thats all you do in the game and judge it. Those people have no imaginations (and probably have their house blown up by creepers because they can’t figure out a way to stop them).

    Its a game for everyone that has an imagination and likes to build, play and kill stuff; with or without friends.

    Thanks but I’ll stick with Second Life, much better graphics and much better building options.
