The Minecraft Dilemma: Can Games Have Too Much Content?
Video games with back of the box bullet-point-worthy features like “a vast, open world” or “hundreds of hours of gameplay” tend to terrify me. Gamers typically see those grand statements as a major plus when it comes to their hobby of choice, a way of getting the most bang for their hard-earned buck. Partially because my own gaming habits are changing and partially because I know my own “Must experience everything!” nature far too well, I now find myself shying away from games that offer what is arguably too much content.

Terraria Takes Over Consoles Early 2013
I should be excited 505 Games is bringing its hit PC brick-building adventure game, Terraria, to consoles, but I'm not. Why? Because Terraria and I got along perhaps a little too well.
