    I lost my current addiction. Fell into lava one too many times while carrying diamonds.
    I find that the game needs a bit more substance at the moment. I'm sure that I will get back into it later.

    And still waiting on some kind of underwater breathing device.

    Totally agree i lost my addiction. We set up our own server and had an active community but when me and the other admin lost interest a couple of months down the line. It just went downhill.

    I guess one way of developing games is not to launch them before people have already bored of the game.

    Wat.

    I've been out of it for the last month or so too, but this isn't the first time and I'm sure it won't be the last. I've been tempted to start a new world recently too in order to find some wolves, and with the Easter holidays I just might..

    I'm definitely looking forward to NPC villages and the like, even if it comes as an expansion after release. I'd also like to see the mod community produce a few more game modes - I've always thought that the game itself should be pure, with modders coming in and developing games like 'build a fort and defend it from opponents'.

    I just carnt stop playing this game !!! , the open development model has turned out to be financially beneficial to notch !.

    I agree with chrisb2e9 , there should be scuba gear in game , possibly derived from rubber trees and working the iron ? :D

    Can't tell if trolling... or just very stupid.

    Minecraft is still selling heavily chap. It will do for some time because the main basis is of creativity and gameplay. I for one never really get tired of making a Fort with pillbox's TNT traps in no man's land, a giant "THE GAME" sign mid fortress... then declaring war on the rest of my server in a PVP showdown and watch all their stuff crumble and cave... *evil laughter*

    Minecraft will keep me as amused as Open Transport Tycoon for many years I reckon.

    On the same day as Skyrim?

    I couldn't give a rat's arse anyway, I never caught onto what was so great about Minecraft. To me, it just seemed to be Dwarf Fortress but in 3D and much worse.

    The more it gets like Dwarf Fortress the better. Notch did model it on dwarf fortress by the way...

    I still play that as well, tried installing some better texture packs the other day. Such an epic game. :thumb:

    All these high end games come out and im happy to play minecraft, dwarf fortress, Open transport tycoon and cs1.6 :D

    Haven't paid any attention to it. The name implies that it's another dungeon crawler. What's it about?
    "'The plan is to be open with this and try to get people to cheer us on as much as possible.'" Cheer them on about what?

    11th of November is Official Skyrim day.
    I couldn't care if this game came with 10 naked women lubed up to the max; nothing is keeping me from Skyrim!

    I've been playing this game for about a month now and i've never found a more addicting game ever, i've always thought sandbox games where fun, and indeed Assassin's Creed is freaking epic, but this game takes the genre to a new level. With all the mods and other things you can add to the game, there is a never-ending source of entertainment not seen in a long time.

    I'm glad I own Minecraft, because it's accessible as a download from anywhere and it'll run on a turkey sandwich, so if my main PC melts down a fuel rod or whatever I can still actually play a real game and don't have to resort to switching on the Xbox. But let's not kid ourselves it's amazing. Nearly everybody I know picked up a copy, and sure, it was cheap and it provided generally 12 hours plus of fun, great fun in fact, but it's not going to change the world. Good game, well done to the devs, good effort, let's all move on with our lives until we need another fix of building something.

    I can see the parrallels there, massive hype beforehand but when you get down to play it's all over far too quickly. :D
