Have you ever heard of this thing called art?  You know, where they draw pretty pictures sometimes and hundreds of years later are still talked about?

 

Also, it is very funny to me that you think it's laughable as a game, but that millions, nearly 20 million people, consider it worth buying.  Compare that to some of the latest big MMO releases and...

I play an MMO to play the MMO.  Not sit around for hundreds of years commenting on it.

Considering an individual minecraft server can hold thousands of players and some frequently hit 1000 users online, and that DOTA is listed but supports what, 10 people at once, yeah it should be on this list as much as many other titles should be.

It's not an RPG in any sense of the word though.

Just had to throw that in there. Yes obviously people find it fun and purchase it, but apparently I cannot wrap my mind around why the hell someone would want to waste money on it.

Perhaps as with the case of many, many gamers, the spending of money on a fun game isn't a waste?  Especially one relatively inexpensive and with staggering possibilities, free patches and updates, as well as an active modding community?

 

Just a thought.  I did appreciate your explanation about LEGO at least.

I don't mean to come off as rude, or degrading towards those who play it. I know my son has quite a few friends who play it (all 3rd - 4th graders). I just personally don't get it. I'm sure people get quite a bit of enjoyment out of it, and honestly that's all that matters. Everyone is entitled to enjoy themselves however they please!

Ah, so ignoring RPG video game conventions like looting items, levelling up, pvp, crafting, trading with NPCs?

Or did you mean role playing like pretending to be really in the world, which people also do?

Or did you mean Rocket Propelled Grenade, which I'm sure some fan mod has added to the game?

Actually, what the hell do you mean?  ha

Ah, so your son is playing minecraft - required coursework in some schools.  He's playing a game worthy to be educational, as well as generally well reviewedt and considered fun by millions.  He does this willingly, and with friends.

Yet you call it a waste.

Yeah, Minecraft.  Better selling, more innovative, and far more influential than GW2.

Whether it sold over 6 times more copies as GW2 or 600 times more copies, just shows how much overpopulation is going on around the world, dang 3-10 age range of those players...It looks like crap, the things you build look like crap, so why do it? I honestly don't see how that game could be entertaining to anyone other than a small child. Like it was said earlier, just buy legos.

So you have never played it but want to bash it here is what I get from your post?

How many delicate flowers have you met in Counterstrike?

I'm not your friend.

I got a case of beer and a chainsaw waiting for me at home after work.

Ah.  My mistake.  I see the waste then.  A wasted opportunity ;)

In any event, did you know someone built an ASCII word processor in Minecraft?  You could say they have imagination, drive, excellent planning skills, and all sorts of qualities that could translate into the real world.  There are hundreds of amazing things done in Minecraft.

It is a waste that you haven't found them yet ;)

Yup your right. Who wants a game that lets you do anything you want in it\. there is no fun in that game at all. we should ban it from ever being spoken again. You sir are correct. cant fix stupid i guess

Have them play Minecraft!

Just had to throw that in there. Yes obviously people find it fun and purchase it, but apparently I cannot wrap my mind around why the hell someone would want to waste money on it.

Perhaps as with the case of many, many gamers, the spending of money on a fun game isn't a waste?  Especially one relatively inexpensive and with staggering possibilities, free patches and updates, as well as an active modding community?

 

Just a thought.  I did appreciate your explanation about LEGO at least.

I don't mean to come off as rude, or degrading towards those who play it. I know my son has quite a few friends who play it (all 3rd - 4th graders). I just personally don't get it. I'm sure people get quite a bit of enjoyment out of it, and honestly that's all that matters. Everyone is entitled to enjoy themselves however they please!

Ah, so your son is playing minecraft - required coursework in some schools.  He's playing a game worthy to be educational, as well as generally well reviewedt and considered fun by millions.  He does this willingly, and with friends.

Yet you call it a waste.

Correction: He has friends that play it. He does not play it.

Ah.  My mistake.  I see the waste then.  A wasted opportunity ;)

In any event, did you know someone built an ASCII word processor in Minecraft?  You could say they have imagination, drive, excellent planning skills, and all sorts of qualities that could translate into the real world.  There are hundreds of amazing things done in Minecraft.

It is a waste that you haven't found them yet ;)

It's a waste they don't actually translate them into the real world. ;)

Ah, I see you've met every person who has played Minecraft and are an expert in education who could probably start advising multiple countries how to better run their schools.

Sorry,  I had thought you were just out of touch at first.  My mistake ;)

Minecraft shows people rather play lego than mmorpg.  MMORPG is overated.

Minecraft has also sold over 6 times as many copies as Guild Wars 2.  Over 18 million last I looked.  So it is rather funny to me when people say it looks un-fun and like a terrible game from the past, when a new game with supposed innovation and quality graphics (lol culling fail), sells far, far less, while costing much more to both produce and purchase.

 

Yeah, Minecraft.  Better selling, more innovative, and far more influential than GW2.

Whether it sold over 6 times more copies as GW2 or 600 times more copies, just shows how much overpopulation is going on around the world, dang 3-10 age range of those players...It looks like crap, the things you build look like crap, so why do it? I honestly don't see how that game could be entertaining to anyone other than a small child. Like it was said earlier, just buy legos.

So you have never played it but want to bash it here is what I get from your post?

You build things, end of story. Don't need to understand much more than that to know I don't like it. 

Yup your right, there is no fun in that game at all. we should bang it from being spoken again. You sir are correct. cant fix stupid i guess

Hey now that isn't true.  If you want to educate and improve someone's thinking...

Have them play Minecraft!

He already pretty much said he would rather die than play it so let em be

How many delicate flowers have you met in Counterstrike?

I'm not your friend.

I got a case of beer and a chainsaw waiting for me at home after work.

The doctors say his chances are 50/50...but there's only a 10% chance of that.

Sometimes I wonder if early conversations between cavemen went like this thread has.

One saying to the other something like "don't play with rocks, they're useless to us"

Then when the other uses the rocks to make the first campfire....

 

Now today, people are saying no point in learning "city planning, environmental awareness, preparing for the future and completing goals."

I just shrug, and make fire ;)
