It has it's charms, but personally they're short lived. It gets repetitive fast and doesn't really hit the mark for me when it comes to survival games. Now if Don't Starve and Minecraft had a baby... that might do it. The 3D first person view makes for a much more immersive survival experience. Now if only a game did both well.
winter doesnt even come within an hour, even then usually that alone kills someone. But then later theres the deerclops, and supplies run low if you arent prepared which usually takes 10 runs before you realize what you need to survive.
I can't seem to get back into Don't Starve. I stopped playing it a bit after the final Adventure update (didn't actually finish Adventure, though) and I started up a file to try out the underground, but I can't feel as passionate about the game as I did when it first came out.
it's odd because I've been replaying Minecraft with some of the more interesting mods (Metallurgy, Buildcraft, Archimedes Ships, Aether II) and I've been able to stay addicted to it, and it's a very similar type of game --- Magikoopa Security Force: Defend against the Shy Guys!

Minecraft does have one major element going for it that Don't Starve is missing - creativity. Minecraft lets you create things. Don't Starve doesn't. That alone gives Minecraft infinitely more replayability. --- "How do I get rid of a Trojan Horse?" -Sailor_Kakashi "Leave it outside the gates of Troy overnight." -Davel23
It's funny that people don't bat an eye at buying say a pack of smokes for nearly 4-5 bucks
As someone who grew up with cigarettes costing less than $2 a pack, I bat an eye at it.... It was one of my major motivations to quit. (And I quit back in 2005).
Also, nicotine is physically addictive, unlike games. As long as they creep the price up slowly enough, the nicotine addicts will keep buying it no matter what... same for Gasoline... only in that case it's more of a "necessity of life" since you can't really do anything without having a car unless you live in a city with awesome public transportation.

Minecraft is more about exploring and building to me than merely surviving... the whole zombie/creeper thing takes a backseat to that... it's just there as an obstacle to exploration.
Don't Starve really is more about surviving for as long as possible. --- http://raptr.com/badge/arleas/uc.png http://i.imgur.com/G7PNnZ8.gif
