I always think I'd like this game, but then I realize that anything I could build would be more fun to do with my extensive LEGO collection.

Minecraft = LegoAnother one of those really annoying stereotypes perpetuated by people who, with all due respect, have little-to-no idea what they're talking about.

Since I no longer have my lego collection, this game is a great substitute. But man, do I miss my lego castles and little ponies... and the dragons... the little lego knights in swords and funny helms. Building sieges scenes of attacking castles, or mages, or dragons. So fun.... I think I need to go play minecraft...Unrelated to lego though, I am starting to dislike/worry the way minecraft is going. Endermen eat my walls if I don't surround them in water, and in 1.9 they might just teleport into my castle grounds and take them apart... Creepers weren't bad enough? They exist in the day now and are very "SURPRISE EXPLODEY!" And with 1.9 the mobs are stronger, armor becomes very important (but I like my godzilla skin!), etc. Potions sound interesting though.

"Minecraft = LegoAnother one of those really annoying stereotypes perpetuated by people who, with all due respect, have little-to-no idea what they're talking about."Persnickety much? Sorry if you found my comparison in some way a slight against your Minecraft hobby... but get over it. You gather resources, using them to make new resources and build something.It's not much different than me digging through my 24-gallon tubs looking for the pieces I want in order to build something.Yes, in Minecraft, you get attacked while trying to do this. But I have a cat, so I face the same, if not greater danger. Pretty sure Minecraft has never left you with a bleeding hand.Both are enjoyable creative outlets. Don't be a douche.

Yes Matt knows all about douche-like behavior.

'Yes, in Minecraft, you get attacked while trying to do this. But I have a cat, so I face the same, if not greater danger.

You're quick enough to defend WoW when someone comes along and, in your opinion, is offensive regarding it. I see no reason why I should not politely tell you that you don't know what you're talking about.

I've SEEN Minecraft. I know what the game is about for the most part... I'm not entirely uninformed. I was just saying that given the options, I'd rather exercise my creativity though LEGO, than via Minecraft. Heck, there's some incredible LEGO CAD-style programs out there... but if I'm going to spend any time using those, I'd rather just use the bricks I have, instead.And sorry about the douche-thing. It's entirely possible I read a tone into your post that wasn't intended.Also, Teddy loves me. He also loves the crinkly clear plastic bags that LEGO comes in, as well as diving claws-first into piles of plastic that make tinkling noises when I'm rooting through them. He's a pouncer.

@anuillaeSomeone obviously has never had a cat as a pet.

@BonwhinOn the contrary, we have several more cats than your average cat owner. About 13, last time they were counted. Of course, they're practically wild rather than pets, since we keep them for catching rats. They do scratch, since you could hardly consider the owner-cat bond to be a relationship...

The relationship between owner and cat is a very complex one. It is very giving, as in you give belly rubs when they are not traps into a kitty claw grasp of doom and in return your face remains un-mauled (new word). I love my cats very much.
