Heres the thing, the name of the game IS MINECRAFT. Yet you can survive and play for hours without mining... You can play on peaceful and surviving isn't a problem... You could go without building anything, you'd just live in a cave. :]  If theres other good answers in the replies i'll add em to the poll.

To have fun. That's the purpose of Minecraft isn't it? Fun. It does a nice job.

I agree with this fully. The entire point of the game is to have fun.

Well, the title says main goal OF minecraft, so this is what I think:

I think the purpose of mine craft was to fulfill our fantasies of having the world how WE want it. No big buildings and corporations unless we allow it. I think Notch thought that an alternate reality that simulates the world millions of years ago would be perfect to let us fulfill these normal human fantasies.

Now the poll says the main goal IN minecraft, and I think that the main goal in minecraft is to do whatever you want, and enjoy doing it/be satisfied doing it.

When I play, my main goal is to gather bounties of resources so I can build things. With this there is definitely an aspect of survival, and you can't gather resources without mining.
So, really, all of the above.

Literally, the purpose of Minecraft is to 'Mine' and 'Craft' in that order.

Economically, the purpose of Minecraft is to provide profit to Mojang.

Emotionally, the purpose of Minecraft is to provide limited happiness.

Physically, the purpose of Minecraft is to take up around 120 MB of memory.

Figurativly, the purpose of Minecraft is to survive and thrive.

Psychologically, the purpose of Minecraft is to display subliminal messages to make you buy Cheese Whiz.

Stellarly, the purpose of Minecraft is to mimic real-life scenarios on an alien world.

Environmentally, the purpose of Minecraft is to make surface lava pools a hazard against forests.

Biologically, the purpose of Minecraft is to prove Creepers exist.

Philosophically, the purpose of Minecraft is to ask the question, "Can one create his own fate?"

Criminally, the purpose of Minecraft is to promote vandalism and murder.

And to the run-off-the-mill Minecrafter like your and myself, the purpose of Minecraft is about as hard-fetched (and quite literally so) as finding the meaning of Life. :3

All 3. That's what it is. Except it's not as fun now as it used to be. Minecraft was more fun in alpha and 1.7.3

The entire point of any game is to have fun. At least thats the way things should be.

Surviving would be the main goal of Minecraft due to the fact that you would need to gather adequate resources to last for a long time, despite the fact that there's the Ender Dragon.
