does unreal world count as a minecraftlike.

I think those three make up the 3 legs of the genre.

"Minecraftlikes" gives the game far too much credit. Sure, interface and mechanics are getting ripped from Minecraft left, right and centre, but I believe the core concepts behind Minecraft and its offspring come from other games, e.g. Dwarf Fortress.

Everyone in this thread: seems pretty happy to use the term, despite e.g. Infiniminer predate Minecraft.
