|Randomly generated terrain. Oh yeah!|
Ah yes, the wonderful world of Minecraft. Full of randomly generated terrain, pigs, cows, zombies, Creepers and just about whatever you can imagine building in a world full of cubes. I'm sure just about everyone has heard of it by now, but if not I'll give you a bit of info.
Basically you start the game by spawning randomly on a random map. You have nothing on you and need to get to work fast if you expect to start your first night. It all starts simply enough with you chopping down trees with your bare fists, working your way up to crafting wooden tools, then stone tools, then iron and ultimately getting precious diamonds from deep within your world.

I am of course barely scratching the surface of all that this game holds. My intent here is only to give you a small bit of info about this game to possibly pique your interest. There are far more videos on YouTube that will do a much better job of pitching this great game to you if you haven't checked it out yet (which I suggest you do!). It's still in Beta and available for about $20US @ http://www.minecraft.net/. Be warned that it will go up in price once it leaves Beta, so purchase early and save money. :P
