Graphics are terrible.  I don't see any gameplay, just some boring world design stuff that's so tedious and dull, then you just explore a boring world with horrible graphics, including a square sun.

They enjoy it. Why else would they play it? Why do you hate chocolate and some people love it? They just do.

It's alot like Legos.

I love it. Graphics are meaningless, so long that the gameplay is there and is conveyed properly with the graphics given. In the case of Minecraft, the graphics are part of the gameplay.

The entire premise of the game is to build stuff and to survive. If you don't like that, then you probably won't like Minecraft.

It's best to get private on a server with a couple friends.

Last night, I built a lava moat around my house to protect me from creepers..... in retrospect I probably shouldn't have built it out of wood.


Poor house. Sad
A buddy of mine came over and helped me rebuild it and build the moat to where it was safe.

Still.... poor house. Sad

It's pixelated goodness!

There are some mods that make games in the worlds... but it's more of a retro fun thing.

Have you tried?

well besides you can build a functionin computer in there, most of the gameplay is hard to explain. You decide to give the game a go, and you sit there just clearing out a flat area, to make a stupid simple house and next thing you know the cops are breaking down your door, cause no one has seen you for a month and you try to show them the cooler aspects of your house and they think you are a man from 1999 and dont care that you finally found your first diamond

Pretty much this.  It's virtual legos and the most addictive game I've ever played.  Totally free sandbox game with a nearly unlimited world is what a lot of us dreamed of as kids, now we're finally got it.  It's actually the only video game I play.

Enjoying the dose of reality or getting a laugh out of my posts? Feel free to toss me a penny or two, everyone else seems to be doing it! 1Kn8NqvbCC83zpvBsKMtu4sjso5PjrQEu1

I am the only one in my group of friends that plays this game. "Why?", they ask. Because my gaming rig is mining 24/7 and all I have is my eeePC. If I make money and enjoy doing it, why not?

Minecraft is fun. Everybody loves blocks. Especially hundreds of different blocks with different uses. And suns and people and creepers made of blocks. Anyone want a cheap account, PM me.

I like the survival/adventure aspect of it.  Doing adventure maps is really fun and it's cool to just start on remote island and do everything you can to survive.

Everyone interested in Minecraft should check out Latura. It is being made by the developers of EvilMineCraft (Which was a mod).

They are bringing a lot to the table.

If you love me, you'd give me a Satoshi!

I for one don't play Minecraft. I prefer Dwarf Fortress. Wink

Minecraft is your old-new digital lego. Though it's get boring after a while, if you play alone.

Ah yeah. Cool stuff.

Tekkit is just Bukkit server plugin engine with Technic pack overlaid. Formerly technic was just industrialcraft + buildcraft and not much else.

Sadly, now it contains eloraam's "redpower" which I can't stand. (( if only because on a personal level, eloraam can make developing minecraft mods and features as unpleasant as working with luke here in the bitcoin community ))

Yeah, it's much better multiplayer. The "whitelist only" server I'm on typically has 3-20 people on (depending on what time of day)

@Ivica omg omg omg omg damn you. I want to steal that avatar idea SOO BAD. Was it your own design if I might ask? For mine I might do something like this:

Stop Motion Rubik's Cube

Love the song. I have more stuff by them. They're called "the postal service" / "such great heights"is the song in question Smiley

Here's my take:

When we were kids, most of us probably wanted to build stuff in one way or another, whether it was an obsession, or just a lazy-day idea. Minecraft makes it possible for us to build anything with only the limits of our imaginations and the "blocks" available to us. (Lego) So if we can build a house a hundred stories high, and then burn it down with nothing lost except time, why not do it?

Minecraft is simply the best game I've ever played. I've been resisting it for the long time because of ugly graphics, but after I started plying, I realized that it's actually part of the game.

For those who like survival mod and are fans of post-apo, try PAS-HC server http://pashc.zapto.org/. There are mods like BuildCraft, Forestry and many others... also, HC in the name means everything is allowed there.
