Pretty much hit the nail on the head.

Cliffs: (note his words, I only summarized)

- Minecraft's retro graphics are lazily done, kept programmer art rather than hiring a good artist and giving minecraft it's own style. Provides various examples of games with retro graphics like minecraft that look better.
- Sound is average, nothing bad.
- Good, simple controls
- Combat is extremely simple, easy, and boring. No attack animations from enemies, weak pathfinding (example trying to walk through walls to get to you) Only thing you can do is crit, sprint, or regularly attack.
- NPC villagers are completely useless. Do not respond to attacks, do not respond to you taking down their house, do not respond to nearby mobs, do not respond to anything. He asks why are they even in the game if we can't do anything with them?
- Notch promised many features but failed to deliver.
- Put of adding a modding API so Notch could make more money, updates in the last few months were just stolen mods. Wolves, pistons, etc.
- Provides example of game-breaking glitch (diamond block duping).
- Not many minerals, easy to get diamond within an hour of playing.
- Abrupt and ugly biome transitions.
- Strongholds are boring and barren, treasure chests contain items that are much more easily obtained on your own or useless items. He provides an example with cocoa beans, which make cookies but there useless because you can just use other food items.
- Poison foods don't make sense, you can still heal even if they are "poisonous". No reason to have poisonous foods if they heal you anyway.
- Final boss is only difficult because of it's high health and it's regenerating health towers. Tedious rather than challenging.
- Doesn't see the appeal in multiplayer, far more entertaining multiplayer games.
- Game loses appeal quickly.
- Any website that gives MC 10/10 should not be trusted, because there are obvious problems.
- Notch makes poll asking if people would come to minecon if it was $90, everyone says no and he ups the price to $140. Wat?
- People only want to play scrolls because notch made it, game is not original at all.
- Supports Yogscast criticizing Notch, from his twitter claims.
- Mojang team are hypocrites, also curse in front of children vs yogscast.
- Could have been great game, special and unique gear, NPCs you can communicate with, all sorts of directions mc could have gone. Instead it went in multiple directions in a step or two, never really committing.
- All notch's games based on previously existing games, did very little to innovate games. Yet he won an award for it.
- Notes that minecraft is 1.0, RELEASE VERSION.
- Overall, can't recommend minecraft to anyone for $30, $15, not even for $6.99 on the app store. Not even for free.
- 2.25/10 score

He didn't understand that games are not about graphics.

So , this is the topic of his video.

Just for the graphics......

I dont have words that can explain what is happening on Skarl´s brain.

That video has to be by far the most stupid game review ever.

Now i understand the phrase " I dont want to live in this planet anymore "... now i get why a lot of people say humans are stupid , now i get why aliens want to kill humans...

Please actually watch the video before you start criticizing my intelligence

Graphics are not the only point he makes, he makes many.

Cliffs on video coming up soon.

But please , write what you mean , no one will watch a 20 minute long video that is already being qualified as the most stupid game-review ever made.

What is the problem?, please write about it.

I tried to watch it, but damn, that guy's voice is excruciatingly boring.  It's just a monotone guy droning on and on.

Qualified by the court of yourself.

I haven't watched the video; I don't care for stupidity. But I also don't care for ignorant arrogance like you're putting out there with your post.

The guy can review it however he likes, but you can't call the video stupid and assume everyone else feels the same way as you do. You're a Notch fanboy. You're impartial. Go sit on the sideline and let people with subjective views debate, please.

And please remember to think before you post.

sorry if you cant understand. i dont know the words in english to descrive what i feel. so here is in Spanish.

Acabo de ver este vídeo y me pareció una TREMENDA ESTUPIDEZ! el creador del vídeo se pasa ablando de que MINECRAFT tiene malos gráficos y que es un JUEGO SIMPLE??? esta loco? lo genial de MINECRAFT son los gráficos que tiene. son cuadrados y pixelados. eso es lo que lo hace ÚNICO. no como un "CALL OF DUTY" que TODOS SON LA MISMA COSA!! el creador del vídeo es un estúpido

This entire video is just a guy nitpicking so I shall do the same...

My first complaint is very small. Extremely small. His talk on poisoned food was incorrect. Food poisoning doesn't reduce health, it increases hunger.

The second thing is that he completely avoided the creative aspects of the game. He should have at least mentioned redstone or pistons.

His continuous pointing out of bugs, even the smallest bugs, is completely unnecessary. Do you know how many bugs Skyrim has?

Lastly, he continually said that it was the "final release" even though there will be bug fixes and there will be new updates. Notch said he's hiring a guy to help with AI so we can expect some better NPCs and perhaps some better enemies as well.
The Sun rises in the North!
Now these points of data make a beautiful line...

Imperfections make minecraft minecraft.
Dude, you worry about graphics way to much.
Combat is fun in minecraft.You just cant see it. I cant stand all that ninja moves epic spent-thirty-minutes-grinding-exp-so-i-can-own-the-boss kind of games.
Also, Remember simple combat?You ever tried Pokemon?

- He never said food poisoning reduced health, you probably never even watched the video.
- He did, he said it was fun to build but gets tedious very quickly.
- Do you know how much bigger than minecraft skyrim is? Do you know about the amount of work that went into skyrim? All those sidequests, drawings, etc? No, don't even COMPARE skyrim to minecraft, gtfo.

So what you're trying to say is that imperfections are good?

What... I don't even?

Actually i used to be an avid pvper and played a lot more combat than you ever did, and he's right. Combat is simple and boring, for players just click fast and have a good internet connection, for Mobs just walk backwards while clicking and no one can hit you. Skeletons just sidestrafe and hit. Mob AI is horrible.

ninja moves epic spent-thirty-mintues-grinding-exp games are usually MMORPGS, you can't compare MMOs to minecraft.
again, you can't compare a turn based strategy game like pokemon with minecraft.

I don't see how that's relevant, skyrim will be a better game on minecraft forums or on Bethesda's forums.

But lets not turn this into a skyrimvsminecraft thread. stay on topic

also I loved how you ignored all my other points i made.
