Good to know Notch doesn't give a crap about whiners, also saying he will lose money is beyond stupid, NEWSFLASH you already paid for it Einstein(unless of course you pirated it, but then you would never buy it would you...), also I don't think people would stop buying it for things that make it more of a game and less of a glorified toy(what it is now).
About time this thing gets at least a little bit challenging.
edit: also I don't get it, people voting no are probably the ones that play it on peaceful (for whatever reason, imo if you play on peaceful you might as well just play mc classic, it's free too....), so what would change for these people if the torches started burning out on higher difficulties? absolutely nothing.
I play on hard, so I care. That's WHY I voted no. I play minecraft BECAUSE it's a toy, I want to build. There are countless survival horror games that do the genre much better than minecraft. If torches burned out, and the only option was to get glowstone, it would disable me from building for extended periods every time I decide I want to start a new save. I like starting new saves, I like exploring new territory, I shouldnt have to build a nether gate immediately every time I want a house.
when Notch releases creative mode in beta, THATS when minecraft is a toy.
minecraft is not a toy yet. go play classic.
B.S. Limited resources and occasional monsters do not make Minecraft a survival horror game. Seriously, go play one of the countless better survival/horror games if you want a hardcore survival game. Minecraft is good precisely because it ALLOWS YOU TO BUILD. Complicating this aspect of the game destroys a large amount of its appeal.
