In which Minecraft comes full circle. My friends and I have long referred to Minecraft as “Grown-up LEGOs” and now it’s regular LEGOs, too.
Not just a Portal gun, but a whole game mode. The question now is when will someone create Minecraft inside of Dwarf Fortress, or vise-versa?
I won’t bother analyzing why people copy games and other digital media, as that’s really a moot point. We’ve got an amazingly effective way of distributing culture that is extremely beneficial for humanity, but it clashes with our current economical models. Piracy will win in the long run. It has to. The alternative is too scary.
