1. What I’d actually like in Minecraft would be a way to craft Predator-o-vision for myself. So I could see creepers through walls.

  2. Minecraft and TF2 have so much in common in my mind, in the wild creativity they seem to unlock in so many people. These are why (even though I don’t play either of them much these days) they are very much two of my favorite games of all time.

    Think about how much userbase-created stuff comes out of the Call of Doody series, or games like that. None, effectively, that I’ve seen. They are the reality television of gaming, except for the fact that they are insanely expensive to make. Empty gaming calories.

    But games like Minecraft and TF2 fire people up to MAKE THINGS, not just be semi-engaged content tourists, consumers of others’ creativity.

    This is why I love them. (I think I feel an FGEC post coming on…)
