Seen plenty of videos, own it and played it on multiple platforms including the latest addition, the PS3 version. This game sucks. I have spent a fair amount of time trying to like it and it's awful. So how is an 8bit detailed game and building brick houses, surviving from creatures entertaining? I'd rather play the old Sims if I wanted to build & "survive" imo.

What's your reason why you like this game so much?

The reason I like minecraft is because playing on minigame servers with friends is insanely fun, like hunger gamer, spleef, one in the chamber etc... I have also spent about 200 hours on PvP servers as they get INSANELY addicting (possibly more addicting than world of warcraft)

I like it because it is beautiful. You can build whatever you want, talk with friends, make stuff with friends, theres mini games inside it (Spleef, hunger games, etc.) It just helps me escape my ******** that is a life.

Everyone has their own opinions. I'm pretty sure 90% of people who play minecraft do it for the Creativity. Guess someone here has a crappy imagination :wink:

It's not about building houses and surviving. It's about being creative and using your imagination to build! Eg: start a server, build a giant plane, build a fortress, have a pillow fight. The game is random. :tongue:

I think you don't know how to use the imagination, that's your problem. Not the game. Some people like different games, if you don't like it, don't play it.

It has high appeal because you can literally do whatever you want in it. Obviously you are restricted on the console versions, but on PC with the help of mods you can really amp up the game a ton.

Minecraft has no objective. You can choose to survive. You can choose to just go on Creative and build. You can make whatever you want. The lack of objective is something some people can't handle and might be why those that don't like Minecraft don't like Minecraft. They just shut down when the game doesn't tell them what to do.

I agree, I bought the game, it isn't fun imo. People told me I had to join different servers, did that, still don't understand the hype.

As said before, you can do whatever you want.
You design the world that you play in.
You aren't restricted to what one person thinks you should do. You can do an infinite amount of things.

You can do what you want, create things for fun.
The reason I love this game is because it kept me busy for a long time :smile:
And I love creating things, whether it be real or not.
The monsters just make the game more entertaining.
That's just really all their is to it.
It's not supposed to be amazingly fun, it's supposed to be relaxing, and adventurous in a way.
I don't think it's for everyone, trust me, I had your same exact thoughts.. when I first heard of the game.
Come to play it for a while, It's just chill, and that's the thing I love about it the most.
And the fact it kept me entertained.
Also, because it's different, personally I think it's much better, than playing Call of Duty all day long.
That's why I like it.
If you don't like it, don't play it. (Not saying you can't rant about it, or can't give your opinion, we all do it from time to time :wink:)
