Karen Gillan is my waifu.
I can't agree more with this, it's a huge problem with people and this game, They don't seem to think they can stop playing. It's a game, you'll get bored of it eventually. There's loads of good game out or coming soon, don't waste time on MInecraft if it ain't fun anymore, it's not a magical game where boredom doesn't exist.
So who around here still plays Minecraft as is, updated only by its developers?
What do you mean, "...it almost seems like cheating." Seems like most of them are cheats.
I'm with you on this one.
To me, it seems like there's 3 "Minecrafts" out there.
1- The original (vanilla) MC- the game that the designers intended for you to play. Looked down upon because that's the one "noobs" play.
2- The modded Minecraft- the one people are either trying to make more interesting (less boring) or have shortcuts in cause they want to play by their own rules, think that they can "improve" the game, or simply because they want to feel 'special' cause they've 'customized' the game. ("I'm running a mod!" "So, I'm running a mod pack!!")
3- The Minecraft mini-games. These people are bored of MC and don't want to play it anymore. They'd much rather play another game, but they use MC to make it. They'd use Project Spark (which can do so much more and look 10X better doing it), but MC is so much easier to work with. (Heck, any kid can do it.) Course, most of these people who make (and play) these mini-games have 0 originality- it's the same ole PVP, Hunger Games, etc., over and over.
I think another reason why people write mini-games is that MC has no end per se and no 'winner', and that frustrates the beejebers out of some people. So they come up with mini-games that 'end' and have a 'winner'.
If you like mods or mini-games, good for you. But to me it sounds like if you need mods or mini-games to enjoy MC, you've outgrown it and it's time to move on to another more interesting/challenging game. "Minecraft" isn't your 'style' anymore.
