Lol I was walking home from school and we were just talking about Pc games and i brung up minecraft and they said it so stupid because the graphics look "stupid", its so dumb because you kill cows with hammers and it makes no sence. What do you think? They play games like Mabinogi and rumble fighters they don't even have a console expect for a wii. One of them believes Wii is the best console ever!

...kill cows with hammers?
WTF.
That's...stupid.
SHOW THEM THE ACTUAL GAMEPLAY. NOW. They will change their mind.

That's like saying My Little Pony is stupid; without having watched, nor analyzed it. It's so obviously prejudiced. And they have no facts to back their opinion up. We have an entire fanbase.(Minecraft fanbase. Not... y'know... the 3000+ page thread in off-topic...)

They obviously don't believe then that a game should be able to stand up on immersion and content alone! It's not all about graphics, and someone coming from a Wii background is probably going to scoff at the lack of Mario anyway...

This game is amazing, I don't mind the graphics at all. And doesn't this have a lot better graphics than the Wii? Just because it is blocky doesn't make the graphics suck....

They're not true gamers c:
Games are about gameplay, story, plot, immersion, suspense, etc.; graphics are just fancy extras.
The graphics of Minecraft are perfect. I think they actually add to the simple nature of the game.
Plus, if they don't like the graphics, they can patch the game and use a (HD) texture pack.

Geez, it's like this one user, CoDFansUnite that was spamming The Yogscast's Shadow of Israphel last night. Saying all Minecraft players are "Gay Teenagers that can't afford a real console"

-I am a teen, so I can't argue that...

-I am a male that likes women, so I'm not gay. (I hate it when people use gay as an insult, though)

-I have a PS2, an X-Box360, AND a Nintendo DS, I just happen to also enjoy Minecraft. (Also it's slowing starting to come to consoles, so...)

He also claimed Call of Duty was a million times better.

Which made me Face Palm, because you can't compare a first person shooter game about war to an albeit first person Action/Platformer  about Mining. You could argue about graphics, but that just shows how young, and spoiled you are.

So you can't really compare them at all. And if you argue about graphics, that is in my opinion a really bad choice.

Back when gaming first came out, they had 2-bit graphics, and low quality sound. AND THEY LIKED IT! Heck, even I, a teenager enjoy a good ol' game of Pac-Man, or some SNES games.

But my point is, if you argue with them, odds are it'll just end badly. (Because odds are they were trolling/being spoiled teenagers)

You just have to do this:  :rolleyes:

And let them be that way, while you enjoy what they're missing out on.

At least in my opinion(s).

Get new friends.  :P

More seriously though, it sounds like they're immature. You're able to look beyond graphics to appreciate Minecraft's gameplay, which they can't yet do. Be patient, if they're true gamers, they'll get into Minecraft eventually.
