What do you guys think about Minecraft?

It's possibly one of the greatest games of all time. I've put hundreds upon hundreds of hours into it. HOWEVER, the game is MUCH more fun with friends and if you don't have friends to play with it grows stale much quicker, especially if you aren't a very creative person.

Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Weep, and you weep alone.
The armory of god is guarding me but all you can see is holographic artistry.

That depends. How do you feel about Legos?

No. You jump in a server now and nobody is doing anything other than standing in their houses that they built. You can't build anywhere because they "protect" pretty much every but of land worth building on.

Nobody actually mines or explores anymore.

Pretty much only decent if you start from scratch.


replace 'decent' with GREAT

It's fun but you burn out. Once you burn out, you don't want to see it again for about 6 months to a year.... Then maybe you'd want to play but not solo, so you start up a server with friends and that goes pretty good for a while until you build something really awesome and then something happens to it (whole thing burns down, file corrupted or whatever I dunno) and then you're back to not wanting to see it again for 6-12 months.

I like it because I can start on some big project and just work on it a little at a time when I'm bored, but I've played it enough. I got my $12.85 worth out of it (maybe it was $13.24 or something like that...I forget exactly what I paid).

Like any sandbox game, you'll get out of the game what you're willing to put in. If you only play linear, story-based games then you probably won't enjoy it, but if you're moderately to highly creative and willing to learn about the world it will keep you entertained for a while. There are also mods like Technic that add even more complexity to the world. You will most likely hit a "burnout" point, like most people do after playing quite a bit of any game where you'll want to take a break from it for a while, but you'll be back.

When I found it back in 2010? (just before it officially became known as mc alpha)
I enjoyed it sort of, then smp was released for testing and I had so many good times playing with people I didn't even know and it was awesome.

Nowadays though, it sucks bad. I don't know why but it's just not fun anymore in any way


From an objective standpoint, I can't see any reason why it's got worse.

I myself too played it in alpha, and now can't stand it. But that's only because I played it so much back then- if you've never played it before it's better than ever.


Yeah, I haven't been playing the game since the beginning, but if anything it's gotten much better, with even more to do, mods etc. - though I do tend to get burned out on it after a few days of play (though I come back later).

When I first saw the game I wanted more practicality to it.

When I realized what survival in this game meant and how all the huge buildings you could make had zero purpose, the world was the same everywhere to me no matter how "random" it is, and how the progression is boring and next to non-existant.

There is a reason why I loved Terraria when it came out. It had a much better combat system (not stellar but its easy to be much better than Minecraft), progression, interesting items, bosses... and it was actually a game! To me, anyway.

And it has to be said, Minecraft is one of the worst looking game on the planet. Doom and NES games beat the crap out of it.

Well, Minecraft is more focused on creativity and unique blocks/machines/emergent gameplay while the creator of Terraria tipped the balance more towards enemies and item progression - they are different games and I like each for different reasons. Also, your graphics comment makes me believe you've never played anything on the NES OR Doom, and it's not really valid since you can download and use texture mods.

I dunno... I'd say this looks exactly like an NES game:

I mean, can you even tell those two pictures apart?

Even if I throw in a texture pack picture, we're looking at SNES quality at best:

Again, it's like looking at two pictures which could have been taken from the same game.
