    Im with you Nick…no idea why this game is so damn popular.

  • nick

    should of rephrased that better.
    i can understand why its so popular, its because people find it so much fun to create things.
    but my question is why?
    i mean there are many, many, many other games out there that allow you to do the same thing, and better, and more, but are no where near as popular.
    shame.
    just goes to show how ficcle and hit and miss the industry is!
    you can release the biggest best thing since sliced bread and everyone ignores you, than turn around and slop out another mindless COD wannabe and boom your the worlds biggest game!
    sigh.
    exactly why we have so few and far between new IPs, and new unique genre creating games!
