    I'm one of those weirdos who has never played or had any interest in Minecraft. But I love dungeon crawlers so I'm going to give this a shot for sure.

    Don't care much for Minecraft but it's an RPG and it'll be free via GP so might as well.

    In strict answer to the question...No.

    However, this is misleading because I do plan to play it, just might not be next week, in its first week of release.

    Poll needs more options...perhaps:

    Yes
    Yes, but not next week
    Undecided: Waiting for more gameplay/more reviews
    No
    No it doesn't need more options, otherwise where do you stop:
    Yes, playing next week but not Minecraft Dungeons
    Yes, but not playing, watching a stream
    Yes, but not me, my mother
    ...?

    They decided to add 'next week' to the question, they didn't have to. So it is part of the question, especially if it changes one's answer.

    The question is actually well made as it is simple and well worded. What will be misleading is the result though. I guarantee there will be more Yes than there should be, due to people not answering the question being asked.

    Sounds like Portal Knights, but looks ugly

    It's where you snort a line of cocaine whilst inside a self contained area full of weed smoke.

    It's getting binned for being super lazy, short, buggy and too simple atm by people I normally agree with soooo really not sure tbh. Plus I guess you can already tell they are trying to sell DLC immediately as there are characters and even another portal for more areas that you can't even access yet which is pretty lame :(
    Yeah I saw a couple YT videos reviewing it and tbh it's really put me off especially as I was really looking forward to playing it.
    If at first you don't succeed,boost.

    Looking forward to this one but won't be playing week 1. My main coop bud has just had a baby so no Xbox for 2 weeks. Once we have a wee squad together though, this'll kill a few hours.

    my 6 year old son has been HYPE for this game since E3 or whenever it was released.

    I already have it predownloaded ready for him.

    I'll probably end up playing with him at some point - but on my dummy account, not sure I want this on my account.

    Pre ordered the deluxe version on Xbox and I'll be buying it on Switch too when ita available. I played it about 6 months ago at X019 and it was brilliant fun. 👍

    Is it being reveiwed as being a kids ARPG or as if it is directly competing with Diablo/Path of Exile?

    I'm def going to play it but I'm not sure if it will be right away or not, depends what else I find myself playing when it hits. Borderlands 3 still soaks up a lot of my time and that backlog is getting unruly. lol :)

    Undecided - I want to wait a day or so to see if it's worth playing

    Gotta say the same thing here except not just kids play minecraft so I can see why it's kind of bad that it's not fun for adults. However, wayyy more kids play minecraft and I can see why they would direct the game this way.

    It's even better if it's good for adults as well, but we have to remember that the target audience is kids. The most important aspect is how well it is received by them. How it compares to the types of games we play is secondary.

    It was a legitimate question, I don't watch reviews so I'm curious how they're going about it. Disliking this sort of game will generate clicks/views without much work, so it's easy to be dubious.
