Minecraft is one of the most ubiquitous games in modern history. Just ask someone who play games and in the majority of the cases they will answer they played it at least once.
Until a few days ago I was one of the few who never played it. Not for a lack of interest mind you, I mean, I bought the game back when it was still in beta. At that time it was already popular and it was still being sold for a cheaper price than the intended one for the launch version.
Since I often have an itch to do creative stuff in games this seemed like a pretty good deal at the time. The problem is that I just kept forgetting I had Minecraft or would give it a try for 5 minutes, figure out I actually wanted to play something else and then proceed to forget about it again.
