In a very entertaining article, Big Hunger examines how Minecraft, which despite its pixelated graphics, is becoming increasingly more popular while turning your average geek into a connoisseur of fine architectural construction.

The reason for the game's success? The game is a sandbox: "The most popular sandbox game to date is the Grand Theft Auto series where you can steal a car and cruise around listening to the radio while running over prostitutes for hours and hours. It's this kind of freedom that makes sandbox games so appealing."
