Minecraft is ultimately about building, hence the different coloured blocks. It's appeal lies in being computer lego with more effort required to get the pieces.

Terraria is about dungeon delving and fighting, with some building elements. It's essentially a Metroid-style Rougelike.

Skyrim is about dungeon delving exploring and questing. Building in a realistic 3D engine can't really work if you ask me, it either looks out-of-touch with the rest of the game (see the RTS mod for Fallout New Vegas) or is realistic and that'd just be boring.

Though I do like the RTS mod for Fallout: New Vegas...wonder if a Skyrim version of that or similar will be released...

Well, there's also the issue that if you want to 'build' something in a realistic 3D setting, something like the Construction Kit works way better, is quicker, and makes more sense. For those of us who enjoy building for building's sake, it would probably just be annoying to have to do it in first person.

Personally, I love building huge, imposing structures that you can get lost in/marvel at/etc. and then going to look at them from a first-person perspective... but I definitely don't see much appeal to *having* to build them in first-person. That's just tedious.

But what about Sauerbraten? That looks quite a bit more realistic than Minecraft.

The name sounds strange indeed.

From what I understand, it's an FPS where you can make your own levels in-game.
Some of the levels in the trailer looks like they are taken from the quake series tough.

FPS != my cup of tea. The levels are very pretty, though.

Hmm.. Would necroing this old thread be a good idea, or should we make a new thread?
As not to clutter up Skyrim with talk about Cube 2.

So when do y'all think the next TES game is coming out? I'd guess 5-7 more years.

It helps how I don't have and have never played Skyrim.
