What Minecraft is good for

I like to imagine Notch living in a palatial estate, thinking up new ways users can create viral content with his game. I mean, I like Minecraft. I like Minecraft a lot. But I think I’ve watch more of other, absolutely batshit insane people playing Minecraft than I actually have.

This is not bad, actually. Case in point: this video, which clearly the new update was literally designed for. I mean, music blocks basically makes Minecraft a modern day Mario Paint in pure musical possibility, and a certain other addition made this video an absolute necessity. Its author has created something which feels like it should have always been, and for that, we commend them.

I’m not sure it tops the working Minecraft computer in pure excess, but it wins in sheer geekery. Which is something. All it does for me is it makes me want to play Minecraft.
