They come out at night.
First impression was one of, what the hell...
Looking at the graphics i never thought much of it and it was what actually kept me from playing it, despite many bloggers being very positive about it.
But eventually i figured if so many people play and enjoy it, it's worth giving it a try.
At first it was quite frustrating and it took some time to figure out what exactly Minecraft is suppose to be but once i started building my house and messing around with the world it actually became quite addictive.
The game doesn't tell you what to do and if it wasn't for a few "first night" videos on YouTube i probably wouldn't have played it very long.
Graphicly the game looks like it could come from the Atari 2600 era, but i mean that in a positive way, i was actually one of those gamers who started gaming on the Atari 2600.
And just like many of those Atari 2600 games, they don't look like much but there is a hell of a lot of gameplay fun in them and it's the same with Minecraft.
This game is also a great example for giving the community/player everything he/she needs to entertain themself and they will, no fancy stuff, just a few tools to do whatever they want.
I still have much to learn and figure out as crafting is a lot of trial and error but a lot of fun and i am sure i will spend quite a few hours playing it.
