Lol it's fine, I always go on tangents too XD
Anyways, yeah, I like to play multiplayer Minecraft as well, though I do enjoy having the freedom of my own worlds to do whatever I want. I find it peaceful. Those I usually do creative (so I feel ya; I don't like mining that much, I prefer to just build), but when I play with my friends usually it's survival since most of them prefer that. I do have it on my 360 but since I got the computer version I never play that one anymore.
If you have friends who have it for PC though, and you would like to play multiplayer with them, there are servers all over the place for things like survival or minigames, or even a lot of roleplay servers. I usually use Corbacraft, but Ophion is also good for Skyblock and minigames. Then Lord of the Craft is a very interesting medieval fantasy roleplay server (it's whitelist too), but the only problem with it is the world is huge and there's not enough people to fill it, so it's hard to find much to do that makes it very "roleplay."
Also, if you'd prefer to do your own worlds one-on-one (or in groups) with your friends, there's a program called the Evolve game client, which basically lets you connect to your friends via LAN but over the internet (normally you have to be on the same internet connection). It doesn't always work- it can be pretty buggy- but when it does work it's awesome.
I'm sure you already know a lot of that stuff, but I figured I'd tell you/explain just in case lol.
As for everything else.... Yeah, I play a Khajiit as well. I don't remember his name, since I didn't use my usual character (he wouldn't have been born yet) but he's part of the Ebonheart Pact. I've only played like once or twice though, it just didn't really hold my attention.
I had Zoo Tycoon (the first one, probs the same that you had) for the DS once but never played it; wasn't as good as the computer. I actually started with Zoo Tycoon 1 (which my dad had just happened to pick up real cheap at the flea market) and was super stoked when 2 came out. Of course, even 2 is super outdated now but I still love it. It's too bad the company kind of went out of business because I would love to have a ZT3, it would be super special awesome, but alas, tis not to be.
If you like just exploring worlds, and if you like sci-fi, I would recommend Entropia Universe. Same as Lord of the Craft, it's a massive game with not enough people to fill it and so comes off kind of empty, but unlike the former, there's plenty to do by yourself. It's a pretty challenging game, and the gameplay is a lot different from pretty much any other MMO I've seen (which is probably one reason why I like it so much), but the world(s) is/are massive and there's a lot to explore (especially if you don't wreck your buggy after 2 days.....). The fun part is, if you build up enough in-game money, you can actually convert it to real-life cash. You have to have a lot of it in game though (and it's hard to get) but still, it would be nice. The only problem with the game is you need a reasonably good computer to run it, but if your computer can run Minecraft well with fairly high settings you should be able to run Entropia on low. If not, then oh well I guess.
My little brothers play ROBLOX so much lol. I gave it a try before we discovered Minecraft was a thing and played it JUST for the building games, but I never got super into it.
Also (this just occurred to me) if you like the idea of having a "fake loyalty" to a group, I'm working on setting up a Proboards forum specifically for a six-Clan roleplay where each Clan has it's own forum that can only be viewed by members of the Clan. Each person also can only have one living cat at a time, and your profile is basically your character sheet, so you have to pick one Clan to be a part of at a time. Would you be interested in that at all? I could use a lot of help if you are; I need moderators/storytellers, as well as high-ranking cats for all the Clans, and thus far I've only managed to draw in like, one person lol.
