Whenever my boss's kid comes in with her, he talks my ear off about Minecraft. He's 12, and is constantly talking about this mod or that mod and redstone contraptions and whatnot. All I really have ever done is build a shelter, survive the first night, and then explore a bit, mine until I have a diamond sword and armor, get bored, and not play for another couple of months. Start a new world, and repeat the cycle.
I don't know what I was playing when I was 10-12. Maybe Chrono Trigger on SNES? Command & Conquer and then Age of Empires on PC. I remember wasting hours on C&C or AoE 'til my dad would make me go outside and play so he could use the PC, that's about it. Oh, and The Learning Company games, too. Operation Neptune and Ancient Empires. Maybe The Incredible Machine was the game I talked about the most, since it involved a lot of creative thinking and problem solving.
