I don't see how Cube compares... it doesn't have resource gathering and crafting to build things, does it? Does it have randomly generated worlds?

Comparing Second Life to Minecraft is just as valid as comparing Cube to it. Yes, you can build with others in realtime, but the actual gameplay and concept is very different. Heck even HeroEngine fits that description.

You're right that they didn't have "resource gathering", but all of the other things are there. Cube and Cube 2 both had single player and monsters too. As I said, by Notch's own admission, his game is just a different implementation of an existing concept.

You'll also note that I said you could argue he had the best implementation of the concept.

Again, not unique, but perhaps the best implementation of the concept.
