TIME Magazine Lists Minecraft in a Top 10 List

TIME Magazine recently assembled a "Top 10 Games of 2011" list, and named Minecraft in the #1 spot!  They note the games' nearly endless, player-driven complexity and open-ended design as major draws, adding that "[Minecraft is] so great, it should be on the list every year."  The game was lauded for its replayability and overall "fun" factor:

TIME Magazine said:

The complexity comes from you: the Minecraft universe is so endlessly, pleasurably reconfigurable and customizable that it rewards you for the zillions of hours you sink into it by becoming a reflection of your imagination.

Minecraft's popularity is already well-known in gaming circles, but with each passing day, it becomes a known and loved fixture in more and more places; it is, in many ways, a cultural icon - one which is embodying a new generation of gaming.  Who will be next to discover this amazing game?  Time will tell!

Minecraft beat out Skyrim?

Looks like the competition just took an arrow in the knee.



Posted 07 December 2011 - 09:32 PM

This sounds very interesting...



Posted 07 December 2011 - 09:36 PM

Not surprised about Minecraft being in Times. Minecraft will be big, sensational, mind-blowing. Who knows how long it will take but it WILL happen, I just know it. Congratz Mojang for making one of the best games I've played in my 15 years of life so far! :Diamond:

OK, so contests hosted on other sites are important... but surely they don't take top priority over contests on minecraftforum.net!  Surely it's time we had the voting polls for last week's weekly content contest now.  I'm sorry for seeming somewhat impatient, but it is 5 days late now :/

Sweet, Minecraft made it to number 1.

Wait, what the hell is Skyrim doing at 7?
