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:

Quote from TIME Magazine »
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!
