Minecraft - SmallLogo.altform-lightunplated_targetsize-256

Entertainment > Games >

https://www.minecraft.net/en-us

A procedurally generated survival game with shitty graphics, which became popular because it was first-to-market and took advantage of nostalgia.

Unfortunately, Minecraft was never completed and the author fucked off with the money to make another game. Even with extraordinary success, the author didn't make good on promises and the game was never finished. (It would later be "finished" by having a recipe book concept and an "end".)

I loved this game, and even bought it twice to support the developer, but because it was Java it would bring a computer to its knees. Being sold out to Microsoft (for their upcoming virtual reality stuff I'd bet) was bafflingly insulting.

I would try it again years later, and it hasn't had basic improvements.

Aliens come to ruin an already-ruined earth.. which also already has aliens.

Quite an excellent game.

A multiplayer, text, third-person shooter originally made for DOS, but I know it from Novell Netware.

I had a hell of a lot of fun with it. Perhaps it's nostalgia which makes me stay so fond of it, but I think the fundamental gameplay still holds up today. I could easily imagine a great updated version of this but I have and still do see this same gameplay in all sorts of other top-down games.

A top-down shooter game which uses music to generate levels.

Absolutely fantastic! HOWEVER progress is not auto-saved! Who the fuck makes a game where you can abandon everything you've played just by pressing a button too many times?!

A top-down action fighting semi-roleplaying game.

I played quite a bit of it until early 2015. Spiral Knights is an exceptional game, but unfortunately as of the last time I played it, it lacks balance and so it lacks variety.

This is an exception to Java sucks, therefore everything made with Java sucks.

A zombie-survival first person shooter that I played the hell out of until late-2015. It still had a very active player base.

Balloons threaten monkeys, and you coordinate their defence.

I'm big on tower defence games, and this is a very good one.

The flash version is liked. The Steam version is disliked. Maybe the more adult multiplay on the Steam version would make it worth some money, but not at its price.

A great MMORPG with spectacular mechanics but no endgame.

I had a lot of fun with it way back when, but my most recent visit had me wandering around in circles for an inexcusable length of time. An utter failure. Still highly recommended.

I have nothing but positive things to say about this game. Except for the negative things.

I haven't done a proper review, and might bother some time later.

Aliens destroy the world, and survivors band together to fight back using power armour.

A fantastic game, the likes of which I have never seen.

Unfortunately, it was abandoned.

  • Abandoned - 2017-07-05 - official closure
  • Ember is attempting to be Firefall's spiritual successor.
  • Respark is attempting to be Firefall's spiritual successor.
