Nope. I don't.

I think we are the only 2 though.

And still no mod support.

Mojang really suck at delivering on their promises. Scrolls turned out to be a steaming pile of shit that went no where.

I, uh, got a fully featured demo to see what it was about, was surprisingly good. Figured I'd buy the full thing when they finished it, still hasn't happened... In fact I have no idea what they've done for like the last 2 years, even less than me on my own never ending code project. :P

My 10 year old loves the shit out of it so much it was becoming a problem and he promptly lost access to it when it became the only thing he would do.. (so weird seeing kids get addicted to video games like that, kicked me right in the feels, my parents must of been scared out of there brains)

I introduced it to him when it was in alpha and he saw me playing it. I was a bad role model and probably spent way to much time in front of it in front of him.

Either way, That game is crack for 10 yr olds. For awhile he claimed it was all anyone at school was talking about and it. He's now moved on to Naruto which is some questionable shit as well.

Mean while my youngest 4 yr old is smashing out bubble bobble like a fucking pro. I'll keep him well clear from minecraft till he asks about it.

I've spent more hours playing it than I care to recall.

It is exactly what you make of the experience.
I'm a tad miffed atm, there doesn't seem to be a 'cheap' way to pick it up anymore (it's cheaper on console than on PC, and I'd like to grab another two copies, but not @ $50...)

Not a big fan of DRM'ed games and worse when they run in java, Hell I don't even have Java installed on my home PC.

They add new blocks and stuff. I mean, they've optimised some of it recently, but we've been promised official mod support since 1.0, and still have yet to get anything. We do keep getting new blocks and stuff though. Which to me, is not that appealing. As some of the mods add some amazing things to the game (industrial craft for one) and such.

I think we're getting closer to mod support though as 1.7 changed a lot of the games structure and so now barely any mods work. So I expect mod support by about 2054

My 9,7 and 5 yr old are hooked on it, which I dont mind so much, but I hate the youtube minecraft songs with a passion! My sons play minecraft with them going in the background, drives me insane.
