    Default Who loves Minecraft?

    There's barely any talk about Minecraft here.
    Who here plays and what are your thoughts on it?

    From videos it just looks like you create stuff and that's it. Is there anymore to the game?

    Fun is what you make of it, minecraft especially so.

    Sadly, this game makes me feel ill.

    No, really. For some reason the game makes me feel ill. It gives me godawful motion sickness... as bad if not worse than Half-Life 2.

    I'm more of a Terraria guy, myself.

    I'm with you in the sense that I don't understand the objective. I originally took it to be a "world building" game, but heard you have to build to defend against some sort of army or foe.

    I'm not a big PC guy, but would like to try it when it comes to Kinect.

    Don't you mean walk right and jump(or swim and fly?) Technically you can walk either direction, but the usual direction to the end of the stage is to the right.

    Nope, my statement is no more incorrect then yours.

    There are many things to do in minecraft, building a shelter to protect yourself from the baddies is just the first step. At some point you'll raise chickens to provide feathers to create arrows to kill a dragon. Or mine the depths of hell itself to get ingredients to make a health potion. Or build a 1,200 ft waterslide into the front of your house. Or raise a pack of wolves and keep them as both pets and guardians. Or just stand there looking out a window watching the sunrise over the horizon.

    The fun part of the game isn't what *you* build, it's seeing what other people have built around you and adding to that. Once you dig a pile of raw iron ore out of the ground, smelt it in a furnace to make ingots, use the ingots to make plate armor and a sword, then set out across the countryside with a few of your buddies, that's when you'll see what minecraft is about.

    I think what I like most about these type of games is that they seem to speak to some sort of lost childhood curiosity, back when you had no understanding of what a program was, or that cart/disk space was finite, or that there were limits, and wondered what hidden worlds might lie behind or beyond what little slice of it you were seeing on the screen.

    PM sent.

    I enjoy minecraft for simply being creative and building things but with obstacles that present themselves in the game like the various mobs or just terrain or logistical challenges. Its a game that doesn't really have a stated goal and if you cant wrap your brain around that or you just find that unfun then its not the game for you. Otherwise you can literally lose yourself in it and the joke "just one more block" really is how I at least get sucked into minecraft for extended periods of time.

    Minecraft is something I've been meaning to try, but just haven't bothered yet. I've watched a few streams by the Backloggery guys and it seems like something I could get into, but $26 just for me to test the thing goes against my sensibilities. Maybe if the program goes on sale sometime I'll jump.

    Prog you run a minecraft server for friends too? Fun!

    In any case for me and my friends our fun is trying to take basic items and build something we otherwise couldn't do in real life. Such as stadiums where people fight to the death. Since we don't die for good, it's all good fun with friends!

    In honesty like it's been said it's the user that will make the game fun. most of us like sandbox games where you can build dismantle and restart what you are doing. Definitely for those who love to plan and design.

    Some things from the past we built before changing server files: We've cleaned up since.

    Its the same for me. Back when I was a kid, I loved lego and I mean loved. Thats all I did was build and build for hours apon hours. Minecraft to me is just a giant Lego sandbox without the Lego product name stamped all over it.
