GameSetWatch - Minecraft And The Question Of Luck.
Minecraft is a game that makes industry heads spin. Its developer is on the way to becoming a superstar, itís generating huge sales for an indie game, and yet it's the nerdiest game that has been seen for years. Many insiders have quietly concluded that the game is just lucky-- a non-repeating event, a freak of nature.
If itís not lucky, then cats will lie with dogs and gravity is inverted. Everything that we think we know, we actually wouldnít know. The truth is that Minecraft is not a freak of nature. Itís a harbinger of the shape of things to come.
