What IS the point of Minecraft. My friend asked me what it was and I couldn't really give him a staright awnser. I do play it reguarlly but still i haven't figured it out. Why do people like Minecraft? Why do I like Minecraft? All we do is place blocks around and it still has five million people that bought it. If anyone can figure it out it would be appreciated.

The point of Minecraft is for me the creativity. Maybe not for you or other guys, but i think its the creativity.

It's a sandbox game in which it doesn't really have a 'point' to it.

Like any game, the real purpose is either to pass the time, or for entertainment. Sure, some games influence ou enough to think that the purpose is for something in the game.

Some examples:
  • TF2: Win every round
  • The Elder Scrolls: Complete all quests
  • Minecraft: Build or kill the dragon
Simple as that

Maybe an addition would be "the Exploration".

The point is that there is no point.

The point? Dude, you have your own limitless world in which you can change every detail. Build whatever you want, how ridiculous it may seem. Building is not all, you can also go for an adventure or exploring, as said above. The goal? Stayin' alive.
Sorry, no signature!

It's like asking what's the point of life. There is no actual set point, you're just given things to make your own point out of it, and that's the beauty of Minecraft, it's what you want it to be.

What? That's an unanswerable question... you can do anything in Minecraft. There is no "point".

So what you're saying is that there's no point in living.

What I was trying to say is that there is no actual definition of the point of life, the point of your life is what you make it be the point.

There is always so many points to life and Minecraft. What you say is rubbish, IMHO.

The point of it is to have fun. Like every other game in the world. Play it and enjoy it.
