I never played minecraft so can not really relate that much. This is a good read though.

There were zombies to the left of me, creepers to the right. I was cowering in a deep square hole in the darkness while skeletons rained arrows over my head. What I really needed at that moment was a 10-year-old with some serious sword skills. And all I had was a handful of sticks.

I was, of course, a noob about to die inside Minecraft. And not for the first time, either.

My brothers kids are 7 and 4 and play games on his and his wifes phone. They can not get a job yet but know how to play a game on the iPhone.

I'm going to mention the game to them to see if they love it. Cell phones not around when I was a kid. lol

For some reason I always thought minecraft was like a new version of minesweeper. Shows how much I play games these days.

Haha, kids are spoiled with electronics these days. All I had growing up was a gameboy and those old computers where I played Wolfenstein.

bedfordlawyer, that was too funny.

I just noticed that I left something out. You know what is more annoying than a child playing Minecraft? Answer: Child watching Youtube videos of other players playing. Thank goodness the phase is fading.
