So, there’s this game. Maybe you’ve heard of it. It’s called Minecraft. If you haven’t played it, don’t. It’s too addictive and will suck you into the world of mystical block building. If you are already hooked on Minecraft, then you probably have already used the strategy I’m about to talk about. No matter who you are, read on. Isn’t it fun to hear about my convoluted ramblings!
Anyways, I’m debating if I’m cheating the game with this fail safe strategy I just used. It certainly feels like cheating. Here’s the deal.
STEP ONE – Get all the materials needed for a risky adventure.
STEP TWO – Exit the game and disable the autosave function.
STEP THREE – Go back to my game and enter the Nether through a portal that has already been constructed.
STEP FOUR – Wreak havoc in this treacherous place or die trying. Once I have been transported to the Nether, I attack everything in sight like a crazed lunatic with nothing to lose, for I truly have nothing to lose. I fight with every mutated creature I come into contact with. Die, Blaze, you spinning yellow weird creature. Taste the wrath of my Diamond Sword which has been enchanted to smite you down. Death to you, Zombie Pigmen. You don’t even attack unless provoked. Well guess what? I’m feeling provokish (I don’t think that’s a word). Don’t get in my way, Wither Skeleton. I’ll reduce you to bones, even though you’re already bones. I guess I’ll disassemble your bones.
STEP FIVE – Once I’m done dealing out death and destruction to these hopeless victims, I roam dungeons looking for loot to steal. If I make it back to my Nether portal and return home unscathed, I save my game. If I die, I don’t save my progress.
So, is this cheating the game? I’m on the fence. Let me know! Either way, I find it very fun, unless I die. Then I throw the controller and rage quit.
