At first I was overwhelmed with the lack of focus and just diddled around with making staircases out of dirt. About 30 seconds before I was going to switch the game off out of boredom, I notice the sky seems to be getting darker. Before I know it, the world was almost totally black and I felt even more lost. What the hell is this shit?
Then I found the Wiki.
Once I grasped the basics of crafting I started up a new game and was shocked to see how different everything looked. I spawned in front of a giant mountain so I climbed to the top, naturally. By then, I had a good stockpile of a variety of resources so I got my workbench up at the top of the mountain and began my descent into the core. I hit rock so I set up another workbench and tried to knock out some pickaxes and axes to give me a leg up. It got dark again so I figured out how to make torches. It wasn't long before I had a series of hallways in my dungeon in the center of the mountain. I expanded to the edges and made a spiral staircase back to the top of the mountain. It was still dark but I was out of torches so I kept digging in the dark for more materials. When I heard the zombie growl I shit my pants...
I'm constantly being surprised in this game, with the help of the wiki to guide me in the right direction. I haven't had this much fun since I was a child playing with Legos. I hope more people give Minecraft a shot, because it's really something special once you understand the basics of setting up.
I think I'm in love with Minecraft
