Melodies & Mockeries: Two Perspectives


In this section, High Ground Gaming's resident trolls — the jolly Gurg and the angry Grundle — share their thoughts on Minecraft.

Gurg
The Jolly Troll
In realms of symmetry, both wide and vast,
A game ensnares our hearts so fast.
Minecraft, a land of endless might,
Where day gives way to monster's night.

With pickaxe in hand, we delve deep,
Through caverns dark, where secrets sleep.
We build, we break, we craft, we dream,
In pixel worlds, or so it seems.

From humble wood to diamond rare,
Each block we place with utmost care.
In this land, we're free to roam,
To build, explore, to make our home.

So raise your blocks, both high and grand,
In Minecraft's ever-shifting land!
Grundle
The Angry Troll
Minecraft, ah, it's like a pixelated version of the time I got sent to purgatory by a wizard. To put it in human terms, it's the digital equivalent of endlessly stacking Lego blocks while blindfolded in a room full of toe-stubbing furniture. If I wanted to labor, I’d join dwarves in a mine. The graphics? A throwback to when a potato was a viable graphics card. And the survival mode? A never-ending cycle of punching trees, hoarding dirt, and getting ambushed by explosive foliage. Night comes and what? You get spooky skeletons and green hissy things. A real monster would laugh itself silly! Sure, you can build anything, but it's mostly just compensating for the lack of anything better to do. Perfect if you'd prefer excavating virtual dirt and playing with square sheep over a wild night at the tavern.
