You know, for all of Minecraft's problems and all the cringe it brings with it, it's a video game. It's not a movie, it's not a cash grab or a shitty agenda pushing abomination.

It is a video game. Discuss.

i liked old minecraft better, new minecraft has no soul

the terrain generation for starters is fucking retarded in the newer versions of minecraft, there's no cool formations to find anymore and everything is flat
>>
I fucking loved it when it first appeared, it was just such a fun concept.

I can't wait to play again in five years or so.

Its like a nostalgia hit brewing away in me.
>>
>>323546818
It made money anon, that doesn't mean it's a cash grab. It developed into something with merchandise and what not but that was based off of success. This is completely different than something like FIFA.

I have the same problem with Minecraft as I do with Skyrim. I enjoy it right up until I find a mod issue that I can't fix. Then I stop playing and don't go back.

B-but it gets boring eventually! No shit. Minecraft has a shit load of problems but the fact that /v/ played it to death because they loved it and because of that we're all sick of it, which is the soul reason /v/ perceives it as "New minecraft is boring" is retarded.

It was a let down. /v/ didn't like where it was headed and dropped it after alpha. It wasn't hatred at that time, just disappoinment. Hatred only started when Notch sold-out to MS. MC threads hither n thither. /v/ grew tired of it to the point of hating/ignoring anything that is MC-related. Minecraft is vidya, it's just that it was such a let down.

Can be pretty fun online.
Either with a small group of friends, or a large dangerous world with lots of strangers.

The latter need some mods though.
Shouldn't be impossible to break into other peoples stuff, but not way too easy either.
PrisonPearl and Citadel seemed to work pretty well.

What is the worst thing in Minecraft for you?

For me it is F3.
If it wasn't for F3 coordinates, and minimap mods the game would be much much better.
>>
>>323548558
F3? What's that?
>>
>>323548558
The "new" biome generator they've implemented fuck knows when. I liked flying islands and steep mountains that were possible in the original biome generator. Now you can only get such beatiful landscapes with mods.
>>
If you don't like the new terrain generation, a few days ago I decided to try Minecraft again and found this.
>>
>>323548745
If you don't know and I told you I might ruin the game for you.

Brings up the debug screen.

Exploring was great before that.

>>
>>323548558
The toxic community.
>>
>>323548820
Seriously though, this is really cool, it's even crazier than pre-adventure update world generation.
It has floating islands and incredibly high mountains.
>>
>>323548985
Oh, that's gay. Getting lost in mines was really cool in Minecraft when I used to play. Having a shaft open up into a cave system was exciting because going in would mean a good chance of good minerals, but also getting lost. Tracking your progress sounds like an awesome way to kill fun.

Also, this might be a totally buzzkilling question, but I'm really curious. Why do so many people watch Minecraft let's plays? My younger brother does and I don't get it.
>>
My favourite are servers that have been running for more than two years and are mostly deserted.

Seeing ruins and empty houses, understanding what they needed and seeing the structures they created while seeing the wealth of each city.
>>
>>323549134
To answer your question: most kids feel very lonely. They watch letsplays to see how it is to play with friends. What's sad that you can play online and make friends. But community is toxic and obnoxious, you will get stabbed in the back every time, so people don't trust anyone.
>>
>>323549089

>>323549449
That's a feel I can vaguely understand. I used to play a lot of bot-type games when I was younger because it felt more like playing with other people.

It sucks immensely without mods

I'm also not very creative
>>

I don't think creativity is really needed. I once had a fun time just digging out a giant square quarry all the way down to bedrock in the middle of a desert.

>>
>>323549671

you have a low bar for what qualifies as 'fun'
>>
>>323549134
Yeah it's a real shame.
It's one button away so it is hard to ignore, and if you don't use it and you're playing with others you are just blinding yourself.
Felt great knowing the way in some caves before I learned of that, showing a friend the way.
Bothers me that people use minimap mods as well.

>Why do so many people watch Minecraft let's plays?
I have no clue.
I played minecraft last time in april I think and have never really grown to hate it, but I don't understand watching lets plays of it.

Yahtzee and Gabes drown out featured minecraft twice, but that's mostly a podcast, an hour each time.
It was kind of neat to see what Yahtzee had made, but I can't really see how that would be fun for a long time.

I remember the first prototype of the game and the long wait between creative and survival. Yeah, I'm pretty sure even then Notch was already ready for his billions. The game is not a cashgrab, not until fundamentals were done, that is after OoooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooo updates and, maybe, alpha. After that - yes, the development was purely done because of money and not genuine care for the game

This is the only point I've really heard that I completely agree with when people say Minecraft got shitty because of development. The terrain change was a definite downgrade and really ruined a huge amount of the fun of the game. I remember the first few hours whenever I would play way back when were spent just looking for the perfect spot to build my little house, just finding the most unique and inspiring piece of terrain. Now it's just some hills and boring garbage.

You can normally get cool terrain if you just keep generating new worlds until you find one you like

Ars magica, the first one.
It relied heavily on exploration, which was one of my favorite things about minecraft, and the spells were fun to use. I felt it was enhanced by the mo creatures mod since it has wyverns and flying horses you can ride.

I fucking miss just playing vanilla survival no rules PvP with NO FUCKING MODS and NO FUCKING WHITELIST. WITH griefing allowed. None of that protection bullshit. That shit is so gay.

That shit was fun. As long as there was like a dedicated mod/admin to ban hackers/dupers if they ever came on. It was nice in the early days too because nobody would know how to build the best base or anything like that and some people were creative or worked together. Had some memorable days of raiding other people's bases and such, fucking with other people, mining diamond, those huge as fuck mineshafts, etc. Although I do miss some of the old terrain as people pointed out already. I would play it again if I could find a decent server that doesn't have any gay ass mods and a nice population.
>>
>>323550608

I remember every time they added new shit people would say "it's just the beta version! Of course they will add new shit!"

Whats the point of building a nice creation if no one can see it because they can destroy it in a few minutes and you have to fucking build underground?
Seems that the only way to create nice things without getting them destroyed in a server without rules is to walk thousands of miles and never see a player for the rest of your gameplay, which is pretty much like playing singleplayer.

the entire point is to farm diamond/build mob grinders/farms/etc or steal from others to kill/grief other bases/people in the server. or do whatever you want. form a band of people or group of friends u can trust and build something above ground and defend it if u want. if you want to build nice little pretty things just play creative lmao

Me and some guys once made a 2x2 chunk tower that went from 0 to 256 on a PvP server. It was completely impenetrable, with a layer of sand and water to prevent withers.
Because of that, a skeleton grinder, and an alliance with one other faction, our little band of 4 became the server heavyweight.
Good times.

>>implying underground base can be saved from cheatfags
actually since 99% of xray mods do NOT hide lava blocks by default, if you make an underground base inside a huge ass lava pool (or just make an artificial lava pool around it after) and put some random empty chests on the surface to trick radarfags you are quite secure

>ran a few servers
>made some good friends
>got bored of game
>no reason to contact old buddies anymore
>too worried about being weird to find new games to play
I'm such an autistic fuck that I'm actually having an easier time creating a new game from scratch just so I have reason to talk to my friends again without looking desperate for socialization. I didn't even realize this until I started typing it.

Is anyone else in this boat? I doubt it, it's pretty fucking specific, but who knows?
