So much has been written about Minecraft that anything I say is just superfluous, but I will recount a chat with a friend.

Magrath: man, Minecraft

Magrath: so nice and relaxing

Magrath: just put a game or some music on in the background and I can play for hours

Yeah, that about sums it up. There’s so much value in being able to enter that ‘zone’ that I’d gladly pay a monthly fee for it. Fortunately, we don’t have to.

Oh, and if you find yourself liking Minecraft definitely follow its creator, @notch, on Twitter. You’ll get the inside perspective on development (like this tweet about the upcoming sky dimension) as well as the random thoughts of a humble and passionate gamer.
