Minecraft Intro

It's really hard to not have heard about Minecraft by this point. Minecraft is an HUGELY SUCCESSFUL open ended sandbox video game created by Notch(Marcus Persson). The game was originally inspired by Infiniminer, and Notch improved upon the already manly concept(DIG DEEP AND AVOID LAVA, MINE ROCKS, AND BEAT UP THE OTHER TEAM) in a huge variety of ways. You play as person suddenly thrust into an wild world that wants to destroy you, and what you decide to do after that is completely up to you. Some people have a great time building incredible structures that take weeks of work to create and others get their fun from spelunking down into the dark depths in hope of finding riches. The game uses a charming art style that really looks great.



Okay I know what you're thinking.

But how is this baby looking game manly????

The first thing you're pretty much required to do at the start of every single Minecraft is take down a tree by punching that bastard down.

Playing as a Lumberjack that punches his trees down not manly enough for you?(It should be, even Paul  Bunyan used an axe)

What other game lets you beat a pig with a flower so hard he explodes into delicious porkchops?

No really try to name one oh wait you can't because no other game has such INNOVATION.

Waggling a remote?

Super special camera that tracks my movements???

Another glowing magic wand to throw away playing the 2 awful shovelware games it launches with?

Screw that shit, I want more game where I can use a flower as my weapon of choice.

Forget the pansy-ass guns modern  games vomit on you every five feet or the SUPER HARDCORE MELEE WEAPONS (Gears of War's chainsaw bayonet is excluded from this however,  because holy shit that thing is a CHAINSAW BAYONET. The bastard that made it didn't want to just poke the other guy with a half assed spear, no, he wanted to run over and rip the other bastard into meat confetti when he could just shoot him in less than half the time.)

I can sit here and rant about flower chainsaws for hours, but just go try out Minecraft.
