Hey everyone. While browsing the forums today, I started to think about how I started minecraft. I remeber watching episode one of Seananners LP series and immediately purchasing the game. I then remembered the joy that I got from generating my first world, building my first base, and crafting my first tools. This brings me to my question. If you could wipe your memory of all Minecraft knowledge and start the game fresh again, would you?
ah yes the good ol' days. where every 5 seconds I would be shot in the but by a skeleton, fall into a pit full of zombies, get blown to pieces by a creeper hiding around the corner of my house, or having a spider fall onto my head. I'd much rather live i my mob-proof house with giant lava moat, thank you very much.

Minecraft is so easy for me it just gets boring. when i first started i was hiding in a little hole with 1 torch on my first night. now i can build a partial mansion on my first night. when i built my first house and got my first diamond, i was ecstatic. now its just a trivial thing. i would also like to see minecraft grow all over again (like virtualpolecat said).
I'd save my minecraft memories in something and then erase them so I could still be in awe of the game and be discovering new things. Then i'd reload my old memories into my brain so i knew what i was building before i erased them. :huh.gif: :laugh.gif: :ohmy.gif:
Of course I would. The fun of the game for me was discovering it. Now all I have left to do is to build stupid ******** that gets tiring.
I need to refresh my Minecraft experience, but it's impossible... Mods don't help. The Aether was nice, but after I conquered it, it just got old too. Whenever I create a new save file, I build a small house with the essentials then realize that all that's left to do was build.
I remember finding my first diamonds. I remember building the house I made, and the problems with monsters. I remember losing my diamond pickaxe, my only diamond pickaxe, due to a lava mistake. All of that was great.
My problem with Minecraft now is that it is too progressed and too popular. Before, I felt special when I was one of the few people playing Minecraft. We're reaching 3 million. I hate the fact that we have all this stuff now... I miss Alpha, and I miss early Beta. I can't go back to Beta 1.3 or so, because then I'd be behind the game, and I'd OCD about not having everything available to me.
I am praying for 1.8 to refresh my Minecraft experience. I'm going to start a new world, and if it's not goddamn amazing, I'm probably going to take a long, long break from Minecraft.
For some reason, when I first generated a world on Minecraft, there was this strange uniqueness to it. From the time I got scared at night (since I never saw any tutorials beforehand) and made a shelter out of gravel (didn't know it could fall then), and didn't know spiders could climb walls (didn't make a roof, it was a box basically out of dirt and gravel), to making my first light (torch).
I remember it crystal clear. How I would love to visit that time again, but how I would love not to. Reasons being is because if something were to "alter" my course in gameplay, I would have never found the multiplayer server that I play on now and never had made the friends I did on MC.
The other reason being the fact that, that one feeling you have when you survived a full day in MC is great, but its good only once. You know the rules of MC now, and you realize how little you truly knew and never expected to be as great at playing MC as you may be now.
I don't think I would, I've had MC from Alpha and remember how good it felt to start anew, but think about how much you would be missing. Over the years, I know I have gotten so much better at all aspects of the game. Though, as an experienced player, to get new experiences you mainly try new mods or wait for updates.
I wouldn't trade the satisfaction of all of my great buildings and acheivements, for a clean slate.
