Minecraft… hmmph. You young Corruptorsnappers have it made these days. When I was your age, we played with Lincoln Logs. We didn’t have things like constant updates and added content. You could build a log cabin and that was it. Plus it gave you splinters every time you made one! And you know what? We liked it! How many splinters have you gotten building things with your virtual toys?
Are these staggering user numbers supposed to impress me? Well they don’t. What impresses me is a 1/34th scale ferris wheel working-replica built out of K’NEX. That impresses me. Can’t click your way to that tower of plastic glory. And where’s Batman? Jack Sparrow? R2D2? Minecraft might be the biggest thing since Elvis Presley and color television, but until The Dark Knight finds his way into the game, I think I’ll take a pass.
But I’m sure the rest of you, who have never had the pleasure of forcing a Duplo block onto the baseboard of a LEGO set using the heel of a penny-loafer just because you were so close to finishing your perfect recreation of King Arthur’s castle, will go on mining your crafts or crafting your mines, or whatever. Psshhhh, kids these days. I tell ya.
