The Greatest Selling Point of Minecraft

(That I've seen so far.)

Through a series of youtube videos, I've been introduced to the custom map builds. This feature allows users to create a story, save an associated map and share it. It turns the game from a sandbox-exploring game with virtually unlimited resources to an adventure game, puzzle game, mystery, or even survival with very limited resources.

If the creators market this aspect, it could be a considerable selling portion once the game leaves testing (still in beta right now).

Unfortunately, I can't play these modes because you need the downloaded version, not the one played in-browser, and my computer can barely handle the browser version.
