US Media: Minecraft is now Minecrack

In the past, games such as "Counter Strike" and "World of Warcraft" were made scapegoats by media for the supposedly bad behaviour and the increasing propensity to violence of people playing video games. But now, US-American media have found a new victim - "Minecraft", the well-known sandbox game. The indie hit is said to have a huge and very dangerous addictivity, especially risks for children and teenager were reported by many western news channel. Due to the game concept, which does make addicted and does damp the cognitive ability, the US media compare Markus "Notch" Persson's sandbox title with the drug Crack. Never Minecraft has been negativly presented suchlike by the press. In order to carry weight and to get attention, one gave the game in combination with the drug the surname "Minecrack".


Shortly after these announcements, first charges against the American media landscape went round on the net and more than a few player sounded off about the warnings, especially for the comparison with the drug Crack they have a lack of understanding. Our colleagues from Kotaku have created a video, in which some recordings of the newscasts are shown. What do you think about this topic? Is it justified?

wouldnt agree
they compared minecraft with drugs because ppl who play minecraft play it whole day without stoping ( not all people but some of them do ) and with drugs its the same,the drug addicts cant stop taking drugs,its addiction,also you should know,there are many people who died playing games because they didnt know how to stop....playing 2-3 days non stop till their heart stops.....not saying this problem is only with minecraft,its with every game out there
