@onarum: The game will be around for a long time. It's not something that people will finish in 5 hours and walk away from. Plus there will be future expansions allowing FPS avatars and landing on planets etc.

The irony of these post is that Minecraft in its current sandbox - emergent gameplay form is actually way more of a game than most traditional videogames due to its huge possibilities of player choice.

And in fact game theory-design wise Tell Tale "games" are more like linear interactive stories. Talk about erroneous pre conceived notions of what a video game is or could be.

@fazzle It has no score, you can't level up, you can't kill stuff... It can't be a videogame!

Can you win Minecraft? No. Can you win (ie: finish) a Telltale game? Yes.

Minecraft is not a game, it is a toy or a creation tool.

Notch won at life by creating Minecraft (itself being an abstracted simulacrum of life) so that everyone else can pretend they own a $70 million megamansion :P

I'm actually really glad about this because I have so many games I want to catch up on over the holidays, including the Witcher 2 :P

Good luck to Gilbert, but I'd really like to see the Adventure genre escape from the pixel nostalgia and actually try to do something else.

Uhm, it did? A long time ago actually.

I know it did, but why is he going back to the same exact visual style as his old games?

Ouch. That is a very surprising move. I don't see how including an offline mode would affect anything.
