Excellent article, nicely sums up exactly why I continue to spend so much time (within reason) playing Minecraft with my kids even after several years.

For those that don’t like it because of the graphics. You are completely missing the point of the game. Once you look past the blocky graphics you soon relialise it possibly the most creative and inspiring games ever made.

Even after many years playing, we have only scratched the surface of what is possible. Particularly once you get into the modding community which is mind bogglingly huge and just keeps getting bigger.

"A lot of parents are especially happy to spend time and money on Minecraft for their kids because they see it as a teaching tool. Minecraft teaches kids about architecture, and players can use something called redstone circuits to create simple mechanical devices, even entire computers, out of Minecraft blocks. And while Mojang offers a number of different versions and upgrades of Minecraft to download, the incredible variety of worlds to explore and items you can build comes from "mods", modified software created by the community that can be installed on a server to reshape that world or the rules that govern it. For many young players, mods become a gateway to the world of computer programming, something parents, and perhaps Microsoft as well, are keen to encourage."

Absolutely. As I say "within reason" because going outdoors and playing with real friends and forging new relationships in a physical world is obviously very important. As always everything in moderation.
