Remember, minecraft was originally going to be a six month project for notch. He never meant for it to be the greatest game of the millennium, just a clone for him to play around with. It still is that same clone for him to play with, it just has more people who play it. I have things that I wish were in minecraft, but I don't go bitching to Markus about adding them or removing/nerfing an aspect of the game.
You payed for minecraft because you loved what it had, not what it should have.
Yeah.. I kinda think we are a bit pushing Minecraft's simple essence. I got this game very early and enjoyed it for the no limits and free roaming adventures. Now its very complicated with all these updates and stuff. But thats just me.
