You have probably heard some word of Minecraft, the indie emergent sandbox game, sweeping the interwebs. I have been playing it quite a bit but more surprisingly is my wife has been playing it! The last game she played was Warcraft III.
So why is the game so addictive? In a word: Legos.
Yup this game is basically an electronic version of Legos.
