Minecraft focuses on allowing the player to explore, interact with, and modify a dynamically-generated map made of one-cubic-meter-sized blocks. In addition to blocks, the environment features plants, mobs, and items. Some activities in the game include mining for ore, fighting hostile mobs, and crafting new blocks and tools by gathering various resources found in the game. The game's open-ended model allows players to create structures, creations and artwork on various multiplayer servers or their own single player maps. Other features include redstone circuits for logic computations and remote actions, minecarts and tracks, and a mysterious underworld called the Nether.
Minecraft is a wonderful game for those of us that used to spend countless hours a day building and destroying structures with Lego. It brings the feel of childhood back to those that are too stressed out from work and just want to build giant castles (or giant obscene things. Heck, you can even blow a bunch of mountains up through the use of TNT.
Minecraft also allows the creative ones to think up and build amazing structures (kind of like Legos did back in the day).
Here's a creation that I rather enjoy and envy very much:
Luke, I am your pixels
