what's the deal with minecraft

if you're still wondering what the deal is with minecraft, this guy explains it pretty well. warning, long-ish.

if you just watch the 'hey, i built a full scale model of the enterprise' or 'look, a 16 bit computer built with redstone' videos that get circulated around then you might get the wrong idea. these are not the point really. the true beauty of minecraft is in the emotional responses it inspires. the thrill of exploration and discovery. the sense of unlimited possibility. the immensity, beauty and uniqueness of the world. the constant fear. the satisfaction you get from surviving and then thriving. the best minecraft experiences do not make interesting youtube videos.
