You know you've struck a cord with the gaming public when you get "immortalized" by someone in a  game like LittleBigPlanet or Minecraft. I mean, it says a lot when someone is willing to forego another Mario or Legend of Zelda homage in favor of something contemporary like Dead Island—not the game of course, but the trailer! 

Unfortunately, this translation doesn't quite match the haunting appeal of the eagerly anticipated first-person shooter/horror/role-playing game. Instead, it is quite adorable. Not exactly the effect its creator was going for I'm sure.

Is Minecraft the new communication device for gamers? Are LittleBigPlanet and Minecraft replacing Youtube as the vehicle for gamers to express their love for something?

Everytime something big happens or everytime someone feels nastalgic, we get a Minecraft or LBP creation. Not that this is a bad thing, but it seems like someone is pumping these thngs out on a daily basis.
