Are creepers annoying, or fun? This is a test to see how many people will actually read the main post, vs how many people will just post without reading. Lets find out! What do you think? Make it obvious in your post if you actually read this. Out of first 20 people, 7 read OP.
They're fun because Creepers add a little entertainment to life, and they're the only mob capable of taking me from full health to nearly no health with one attack.
That's when the annoying comes in. My front lawn is holier than Windows. Most of the time it gets annoying having to plug up the craters left behind (I'm OCD and in a lot of cases I can't get into my house if a creeper blows up my front lawn).
Also, nice main post OP.

I'm probably leaving mcf. Lost interest in staying on this forum, not that anyone really would care.
In a freeform game like Minecraft where the object is to move around blocks, the only real setback is having something come along and break your stuff up. Other monsters are only of limited concern to me. Sure, they can kill me but that isn't much of a problem. I have infinite lives and I can just respawn and run back to pick up my stuff. Creepers can kill me *and* put a hole in my house. They're the ultimate bad guy.
Creepers are the only monster that make me scream like a little girl when they sneak up on me. Zombies and spiders can make me jump a bit, but nothing evokes the same reaction as turning around to see that horrible green frown coming at you before blowing a hole in you and the terrain.
Creepers: Annoying at times, but they add something new to the game.
Skeletons: ABSOLUTELY ANNOYING
Zombies: What a joke. They can never even land a hit! Fun
Slimes: SUPER FUN but annoying sounds. :biggrin.gif:
Spiders: Fun in SP, annoying in MP with their stupid lag-jumps.
They are very fun to me, as pretty much every other mob is a nuisance to me. They are awesome for one, and second, they provide you a challenge to get rid of and they have the genuine power to excite you. In fact, just look at my image and tell me they are not fun:
(I just so humorously named it "ThinkIneedInsurance.png")
Although when they destroy your house, setting it to peaceful is best suited, since a Creeper swarm gets annoying when you are in no mood to **** with Creepers or have them screw with you.
I had one get lucky and find the ladder on the outside of my mob drowner, and hiss & blow up on me while I was on the inside of it. No damage as I was standing in the water, but I had to rebuild an entire side of the trap. So they can be annoying. I guess that one was revenge for me luring all of his fellows into it to drown all this time.
