I've never played Minecraft but I'm interested. It looks like Legos mixed with Left4Dead

Heh, you do whatever you want. There's really no goal right now in Minecraft. With the exception of blocks at the bottom of the world that are really just there to keep you from falling through, you can interact with every block in the world. You harvest/mine blocks to collect resources and use them to build and create.

At night monsters come out and you need to be ready to deal with them. For that you need shelter. You can either construct something or dig a room out of the earth. For that you need tools. To make tools you need to harvest trees. Once you've got tools you can start digging into stone and use it to make better tools. With better tools you can more easily find and use better resources to create more stuff.

There's always something to do. After the first five minutes of being unsure of what you should be doing, you'll be constantly moving forward trying to get more iron or finding gold or decorating the amazing house you just built. It's even better playing on a server with other people You can work together, share resources, make discoveries, etc. It really is a fantastic game.

The theme is like Garry's Mod - Open ended with no objective, to put it in a nutshell.

Try to survive, explore, build a house, play with friends, experiment with things, harvest material, craft different items, and see what you can build.

Minecraft is great since it's easily modable. For the most part it's a sandbox survival game, kind've relateable to Legos except you have to actually WORK for those lego pieces. They don't come in a little kit (Unless you mod your minecraft.) There's RP servers and a Nazi Zombie gamemode for minecraft, the possiblities are endless.

It's many things to many people. I love to explore and build giant buildings. I built a scale replica of the Mines of Moria, for example. Others love the community aspect, building large cities and fighting monsters in multiplayer servers. Yet more like the crafting and mining aspect (it's the loot fever!). You can make it what you want it to be. Feel like building ancient Rome? you can. Feel like exploring ten thousand miles of territory? you can. Want to be a Dwarven king? Build your mountain fortress, then. Want to buld machines and computers? Make an automated farm, then. Want to be a railroad tycoon? Then cover the landscape in railways and roads. The possibilities are many.

You can build towers, houses and nearly everything if you have imagination or you can play multiplayer and survive or to just have fun and you can tame wolves too.
