Minecraft - Think Of It As A Virtual Resort


Posted by Non-Hamster on March 26th, 2011

One of the things I've never done is spend a vacation at any kind of resort or do something like get one of those really nice looking Outer Banks rental properties to spend my vacation in taking life easy, far away from the stresses of normal day to day life.

Yeah, I'm a youtube partner and most people think that automatically means that I am suddenly making enough money from that to be able to do things like that.  The sad fact is that, barring a completely unpredictable hit, it generally takes lots of time and hard work to achieve that level of success.

I'm not doing bad but I am still a long way from being that successful on youtube.  I'll get there.  It's just going to take a while.

In the mean time, I have recently discovered something that might just serve as a pretty entertaining substitute.  One that's very well suited to people like myself you, in spite of what many think, still live on a close to zero budget.

That solution is called Minecraft.  It's one of those very open ended games where it's you against the environment and an interesting assortment of monsters and critters.  In this game you can literally build the world you want and it's potential is, as far as I can see, nearly limitless.  Not only that but it has a very high replayability factor because the game world is re-generated randomly every time you start up a new game world.

Lately I've been watching a series of Minecraft videos recorded be a friend of mine, Olinselot on his killingfunny channel.

This thing got my attention fast.  It's just the sort of game that I love playing.  It's about as open ended as you could ever want and it does NOT (that I know of) have any kind of condition where it will end.

You can, in fact, develop the game world to an amazing level of detail.  The only limit really is your own imagination.

Here's the first video in that series to give you an idea of what I'm talking about.  I was hooked within a few minutes of the start and I'll probably be posting minecraft videos of my own on one of my channels soon.
