I am still playing the role as dirty, dirty slave to sidescrollers (it's my guilty pleasure from way back) so I was hesitant to try Minecraft, regardless of how much my friends nagged at me. I eventually caved because...well...just like World of Warcraft, I suddenly noticed everyone was playing it except me! I bought it within the first day of playing and I am so in love :) I felt super stupid trying to explain what it was to people who don't play though; "Yeah, you um... take squares, and build stuff with the squares. Like, you dig the squares, then you have a square for each one you dig. And there are like, dirt squares, and sand squares......" Needless to say, my sister will never play this game.
