I still don't understand. Minecraft on PC will run on anything that isn't a toaster. Why do people keep buying this version?

I bought it so I can play co-op with friends that don't have good enough PCs tp run minecraft on decent settings and without lag, or just to play co-op when I have a friend at my place.

Most console gamers don't have a PC or a great one at the least, because if they did, they wouldn't be on consoles. The deals are better online (Steam for example) and the games look better for the most part and run a lot smoother, advertising free etc.. We can keep going on and on about how superior a PC is but yeah.

i would love to see if this trend changes when the next spartan ops is released for Halo 4 as that is what has stopped me playing online on it currently.

Must agree @#10, BLOPS 2 has been pretty awesome.

Very happy to see Minecraft doing so well - I must get back on to it as it has been a while!

Black Ops 2 is the biggest pile of shit, I haven't enjoy a CoD game since number 4, at least this game keeps all the kiddies of Battlefield 3 though the only positive.

@15 In your opinion.
Did you know that your opinion doesnt mean you are correct, and that other people are allowed opinions too. Also people exist in this world that acutally like Black Ops 2 & Battlefield 3, I know crazy right.

Im assuming by your "at least this game keeps all the kiddies of Battlefield 3" comment you are saying only adults play Battlefield 3? What if you play both, are you just a teenager?

I happen to fall in the category of enjoying Black Ops 2 & Battlefield 3. So by your logic I would be a teenager, but im 27. What do we do now?

Oh I know, we grow up and stop bitching about a game that you dont like. If you dont like it fine. But no one cares that you dont like it.

@#15 If you don't like it don't play it. Maybe the X-Factor game is more your cup of tea?

I suppose if you are the Manchester United of video games you will always get criticism, whether it is just or not...

@14 you put a bread in a toaster for toast, therefore its for toast. Or my pc would be for a motion of endless typing while being paid for it 40 hours a week.

@19 "at least this game keeps all the kiddies of Battlefield 3"
That kind of insinuates that only 'kiddies' play Black Ops 2, and that none play Battlefield 3. Ive met countless idiots on various games. Its not just COD that has them.

@8 Really? Myself and most the people I play regularly on Xbox with all have pretty damn good PCs.

I play on Xbox because it's a different experience, and I have a lot of friends on there. PC/Steam is great but more for when I want to play alone, or a different group of friends who don't have an Xbox.

@4 I got Minecraft on Xbox because it was cheaper, I wasn't sure if I'd actually like it, and I have at least 5-6 friends on Xbox who owned it before me and wanted me to join them.

Nice to see MW2 up there, I'd play it more myself if it wasn't just broken online.

You'd think at #6 in the Arcade charts that Retro City Rampage would have more than 2 critic reviews and 0 user reviews on Metacritic. Suppose that what you get releasing your game on Jan 2nd with zero promotion.

I wonder how much of an impact not having a Firefight mode in Halo 4, has had in the amount of time it is played? I said when they first dropped the mode, that it was a mistake, as it was a very popular way of playing the game. Spec Ops are okay, the first and second time, but after that, you know exactly what is going to happen and exactly what you need to do, Firefight had an element of 'chaos' in it, which meant that it was often an exciting mode to play, and that is what is missing from Spec Ops. Here's hoping that 343 realise the error of their ways and either add in a Firefight mode to Halo 4, or put it back into Halo 5.

@33 Completely agree. I enjoyed Spartan Ops, and I LOVED the story/cutscenes.... But Firefight was just.. so good. It was better in ODST but still a lot of fun in Reach.

Not supriced at all to be honest ;) As it already was in the top 3 list of game of the year 2012. And by that i mean Black Ops 2. I def understand the different oppinions about this game and BF3, to be honest i think they both kinda different in each way. COD is more fast paced and close combat, BF3 on the other hand has wider and bigger maps and plays somewhat different. But like both even so i do prefer BF3 if i had to make a choice.

@35 first things, english please, that is the most hacked up sentences i have ever read, secondly yes COD BO2 is a very terrible game, read somewhere that its the only game that shotguns can kill form across the map and snipers hid around corners

Theres no way black ops 1 has more played then assassins creed lll. Everyone on my friends list is always playing it and not one is ever playing fag ops? Maybe 1 or 2 people play BO2 and i have a full friends list. I sence some hype fraud.

@45, I hardly see anyone on my full friends list playing either assasins creed 3 or Black Ops. A huge chunk are playing Rock Band 3, so by your logic, Rock Band 3 should be in the number 1 spot..
