I recently started playing a game I vowed not to play, that game being minecraft. Now at first I had no freaking idea what was going on in the game except at night I kept getting blown up or shot with arrows. The game has no advice to give in the beginning so you kind of lost to adventure and figure things out. Eventually I looked up online how to craft items and found it slightly amusing but slightly more annoying. I finally got annoyed enough with the damn monsters I turned them off and found it much more enjoyable. I spent a lot of hours mining and finding 3 diamonds so I could make a diamond pickaxe. But of course as I was grabbing the last one when lava showed up and ruined the day. I couldn't return to the point to recover anything as it was all lost in a fiery river of pain. The game is fun and allows to create anything your heart desires, if you have the patience.
if TL:DR check this video out. It pretty sums up the game.
