I feel like minecraft is awesome, it just depends how creative you are. At least I feel that way, If you have a lot of ideas, I feel as if it still keeps it's value. But every once in a while it seems a minecraft user runs out of ideas, and you take a break till the update, which brings you back to the game, and gives you new ideas.
I don't think minecraft loses luster, unless you mean like every other game, that when it is new, it has a magic to it, but that doesn't exclude any game, so that argument doesn't make much sense.
Honestly, sooner or later, I'll just quit Minecraft,
Quit see if we care I don't some of the update that mojang put like the 1.3 update that messed up single player which caused my FPS to drop from 50 fps to 35 fps on a good day and 20 FPS on a bad day. But I don't moan about these things because mojang said there going to work on them. If you don't want to see witch's and bats don't go into swamps or mine end of.
Before anyone Judges me I have to say : Think of something fun in the past , wasnt it much greater back then WRONG , Time changes all you think how the present is so crumby compared to the past its not. This is the same as Minecraft , I joined around Alpha/Beta but recently I played Beta 1.6.6 but well there isn't anything fun I havent done. When you first got the game you played and played , you played the crap outta it untill there is nothing fun to do. An update adds more to the game , if you play alpha/beta your realise its not as good as you remember , try it

I'd say that for any game you would only like the version you played first. The only reason why you don't like it anymore is because you aren't getting all of the surprises you got when you first got the game since you've played it so much.
If you really want something new that is good, install a mod or two that you like.

Let me get this straight...
You don't like the new updates, but your favorite servers update. You update so that you can play on your favorite servers, which have updated to the update you hate. Isn't that fairly contradictory?
Also, If you are that ed, i'm sure nbxlite has something for you...
Discussions about the Mod API (As it will be called when released, plugins) included the Mojang team stating they wish to convert vanilla minecraft into a plugin, or in this case, a series of plugins. The goal they have is for features of the game to be possible to add, modify, or even REMOVE features we don't like. This means if you don't like witches, remove witches. Hate hunger so much? remove it!
Now we all know this won't be for a loooong time but it will happen. I personally enjoy all thats been added since even beta 1.8 and have been around since alpha 1.1.2_1 so yeah.

relevance to the topic: So originality is dead in the game? Just wait, in due time, make minecraft what you want it to be, It's the whole reason the mod API is being developed.
I like most of the updates, but I do have some exeptions
Sponges-They just had to make them useless.
Blindness and nausea potions-They were very uselful in adventure maps.
Monsters not falling down pits-How can I make traps now?
Endermen jumping in water-Say bye to easy work.
But other then those, I love the new features.
So I disagree.
Why are you complaining? What is good about MineCraft is in most updates it adds something new to the game, which will make a new nostalgic memory. For example: When I first heard a bat, I freaked out. (Naturally I never read what the update had ) I searched around the cave trying to find out what was making that noise. When I found the bat, I just laughed. It was probably one of my most memorabilia moments in MC.
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
On the side of the road.
Ok. First Of All. Minecraft Is NOT Dead. If You Go To The Website There's 8,455,385 And Still Counting People Who Have Bought The Game And Maybe 500 Don't Play The Game Anymore. Minecraft Is A Lively, Updating, And Moddable Game. So If You Don't Like It, Don't Play It. Instead Of Ranting On About How The Game Is Dying. And I Remember My First Minecraft World, A Small Little House Behind A Mountain. And I Remember The Rainy Nights And The Creepers Staring Through My Windows In Minecraft 1.8. I Never Expected Half Of The Things That Are In The Game Today To Be Even Thought Of To Be Implemented Into The Minecraft Game. But Some Updates Had Some Bad Things. But I Still Love Minecraft And It's New Features. So Therefore Minecraft Is NOT Dead. At least One More Person Plays It.
But I love witches! They are, currently my favorite hostile mob. Any new mob can be considered a glorious and grand update for minecraft. If you knew anything about game design, you would realize that it takes a lot of work to make a mob.
(Although I will agree that bats, as an aesthetic mob, seem useless to me.)
I think Minecraft is going great with their dev scheme so far. Of course, no game is perfect, and neither is minecraft, but they are still doing a great job.
I think that before you go and rage at the developers, you should try making a game.
