Minecraft is basically how I've always wanted my life to be like: travel a new, undiscovered world and build your own home. I've spent a good portion of my life field living, and had it been in a world like Minecraft - and not this dump of a planet - I would probably still be doing it. Minecraft is also a learning experience for me: it helps me with cognitive thinking, critical thinking, expression, engineering, designing, etc. Minecraft, I think, should be it's very own genre of video game. And finally, currently being an Xbox player (I'm saving up to get a PC so I can do the real thing), I wish there were more possibilities, at least in terms of engineering. I think a lot of tweaks could be made to have a significant increase in capabilities. The mod I saw that I'm most interested in for when I get the PC version will be the redstone paste, being able to wire redstone on walls and ceilings, and also those diodes that have alternate outputs. Having these would change things so much for my engineering, I would find myself saying 'this could be way more efficient' less often. In the end though, Minecraft is easily one of my favorite games, even after avoiding it for years not knowing what the point was and knowing how easily it could suck me in. Eventually I succumbed, and now I'm a diehard fan of Minecraft!
