Like World of Warcraft, I refuse to play this game lest I be consumed by it.

I'd love to try it, but I still have tooooooo many games on my plate. And I'm not making progress through them, because I'm lazy. Gaming is kind of turning into a chore. D:

Minecraft is addicting.

I can only play the free builder version though.

I bought it and played it for a while over the past month or two. Haven't touched it recently though. It was addicting for a time, but not too long. I have a pretty sweet castle on a giant cliff with a lava waterfall for defense, but I got a little jaded when I realized how simple and crappy fluid mechanics are. Originally I wanted to have a sloped moat with a reservoir and a release mechanism so I could gather all the baddies into it, then flood the moat and wash them over the cliff. But water flows too slowly and I can't figure out how to release water via a lever-- it doesn't go through open doors, which would be the logical way. (I think there is a way but I haven't figured it out.)

I also wanted to build a railroad between my giant system of outposts and castles, but I can't find enough damn iron even for the initial track, certainly not for extra boosters and crap. And it'd be pretty slow without boosters, I have a lot of ground to cover.

And yeah, **** those green dudes. Apparently they're called "Creepers," which amuses me.

I don't want to get addicted to Minecraft - I don't have the time.

Which is why I've watched dozens of Let's Plays of it.

If I did get it, I would go to survival multiplayer and start a business of some kind. Like a clockmaking shop.

I've sunk three 4x5 mineshafts to the bottom of the map, and it doesn't produce much iron. I've only found one deposit each of gold and diamonds. Caves haven't been much help either.

Going strait down hasn't helped me much either. Find a nice big cavesystem and mine out the walls, I got a lot of iron and a nice amount of diamond from that.
