Whether it's 'scripted' or not, at least you have fellow townmembers and they at least interact with the world instead of being typical walking signposts. DQB2 is nowhere near a 'harvest moon clone' since you only have to farm in one level. In other levels you are tasked with many other interesting things such as building a railroad system or building up a castle's defense. Disney channel tier dialog? That's still better than Minecraft, which has no real dialog or story.
DQB2 is a retarded Harvest Moon clone that is heavily scripted, pretending to be a traditional Japanese action RPG. It buries you in tasks like growing 10x of one thing or another to fulfill a blueprint in between Disney-channel tier dialog and plot. Minecraft is more of an open world tool kit and survival game that is accessible to anybody.
I agree: not in my personal top 10. But I could easily see younger generations than mine putting it in their top 10.Me personally? no.
In general yeah Minecraft is big and it sadly affected gaming negatively more than positively.
I suspect you're too young to have historical context for that claim. Pong, Pac-Man, and Mario are all more important, and those all came by 1985, let alone the ~30-years in-between. When Minecraft swag is still in Target in 2050, we can talk.
Pac-Man games are being released this year. For Minecraft to match that, it would need a release in 2050. I'm not holding my breath.You suspect wrong, I've been here around since the rise of video games. All more important in what sense? Being first? Being more important to a generation (pacman)? Are Pong & Pacman relevant today at all after 30 years? No. Minecraft will have decades longer legs then either of these titles and it's easily to see why as dumb as the term lego on pc is its the simple truth... and we only need to look at the staying power of the physical bricks, Minecraft as a title has already touched far more people and generations. I wouldn't be surprised if its sold more copies then even the main stay Mario titles across all generations at this point.
'Important' means different things for different people and I just can't see it going anywhere. It's still the most accessible and friendly game at this point that every kid cuts their teeth on when old enough to finally want to 'play games'
