The best remake goofy well executed satisfying fun adventure pirate quest game, fit for all ages and highly addictive, with various genres included like ship combat, infantry strategic warfare, 1 on 1 swordplay, and several other mini-games like dancing or sneaking in town, exploring islands with your crew, lost treasures, quests, warring nations and much more. All so easy to get into but highly addictive
This game allows people to be creative. To create and destroy. To build and craft. To make tnt and punch trees. I have been playing Minecraft since beta 1.6.6. And I am not planning to stop playing it. Of course that Microsoft bought Mojang thingy is not so good. It may allow something new to be created, but I generally think, that no one would like to see a pif with Microsoft logo on its face.
After using this engine for well over a year for multiple games and test demos, I can honestly say it's grown to an amazing state. It provides a natural feel for object oriented programming and game design, making it a high-level framework that one can jump right into using, unlike low-level alternatives like SDL. Additionally, the freedom it provides programmers with still providing access to low-level functions and opengl wrappings make it ideal for anyone familiar with Java who wants to fiddle with all degrees of development.
It addresses short-comings of the language's api, it's highly portable and cross-platform, and best of all it has an extremely active development team. A few years ago it was just a little LWJGL wrapper, but now it's truly a project worth recognizing and is a dream to work with. XNA/Monogame barely even compare to the amount of out-of-the-box features LibGDX provides, as well with the amount of control you get from it.
Minecraft is a good game in its own rights. An open world, a variety of gamemodes and servers with plugins to keep you busy for hours upon end. However, Minecraft isn't the greatest game in the world, and it is overhyped and exaggerated by the fanboys, who make this game worse to play on. Great game, extremely overrated.
