Voiceofreason01: Minecraft is pretty fantastic
Honest Bender: I bought it a long time ago. Played it pretty solidly for a few weeks, then just sort of ran out of stuff to do. That was before they started adding pistons and crap. I understand that there are a lot of cool features that have been added, I just ran out of project ideas.No project ideas = no desire to play. That said, I have nothing but good things to say about the game, mahjong, and notch.Now I'm all up in KSP.
nekom: The one game my 6 year old daughter and I play and both thoroughly enjoy./she's a cold hearted creeper killer.
Honest Bender: No project ideas = no desire to play
Rev.K: Voiceofreason01: Minecraft is pretty fantasticI still don't understand it.I get that it's open world and you build sh*t, but it doesn't play at all like what I would expect.Keep in mind, I only know about Minecraft what I learned from Christopher Walken: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zRMyz2IiOSM
Gnaglor: Just think how much real life stuff could have been made/invented/learned/improved with all the time people waste on minecraft.

Honest Bender: No project ideas = no desire to play.
RevRaven: Minecraft isn't a game. It's virtual Lego. And that might be fun, but it's not a game.
Do the needful: Gnaglor: Just think how much real life stuff could have been made/invented/learned/improved with all the time people waste on minecraft.You do realize that "real life stuff" costs money right? I am sure that if Minecraft was turned off, people wouldn't just start picking up hammers and nails. Or curing cancer as someone else said. Like in the other thread where someone said the same thing about if people spent as much time working on real improvements to their house as they did playing with the game. Well a new roof in minecraft costs about $0. The one on my house will be close to $10k./Watched my adult kids playing minecraft last week. Was running around just filling the place with tnt. Can't do that IRL either.
IC Stars: Haven't tried it, I see...
Superjew: Honest Bender: No project ideas = no desire to play. No imagination.FTFY
Gnaglor: Nekon: I don't usually post in Fark threads. This is my third post in easily as many or more months. The time I wasted isn't measurable compared to the hours/days/years that have been collectively put into Minecraft so far. Not to mentioned, a real world discussion with other real live people is a constructive use of time, taking place during breaks from doing homework while there's no work to be done at my job...26 minutes to the gym etc...Do the needful: See my post http://www.fark.com/comments/7682807/The-most-beautiful-libraries-eve r -builtin-Minecraft-Yep in this forum for greater detail about what I mean.
Honest Bender: Now I'm all up in KSP.I still play Minecraft, and I freaking love KSP. Both are awesome games, provided you have ideas.scottydoesntknow: It would've been 20 million if it weren't for those damn pirates!
Saberus Terras: I still play Minecraft, and I freaking love KSP. Both are awesome games, provided you have ideas.
valar_morghulis: Most of my Minecraft time these days is on XBox, and involve murdering or being murdered by my friend within five minutes of starting a new world.We've started five or six new worlds in half as many days, and it's always the same result.
Saberus Terras: scottydoesntknow: It would've been 20 million if it weren't for those damn pirates!I will admit I pirated the game... at first. I bought a legit copy as soon as I could afford it, and also bought a gift code for a friend that rage-quit the X-Box version because of both a game-breaking bug, and the lack of custom skins.
Gnaglor: scottydoesntknow: You've more or less got me there. My roommate was my friend when I wasn't aware of his living habits or had to see them every single day. But now that I see what type of person he is, I don't consider him to be a friend, just a roommate. I am actually doing all I can to get out of the situation (back in school for second degree, looking for better job, might move back with family, etc). People who play Minecraft is one thing. I don't expect anybody to be constantly doing something productive at all possible times. What I'm referring to is examples like my roommate, or the people who spend countless hours building computers in Minecraft, or replicas of real life stuff. That amount of effort, planning, and talent could be put to so much better use on real world issues...
Honest Bender: Saberus Terras: I still play Minecraft, and I freaking love KSP. Both are awesome games, provided you have ideas.Last night, I ran my first Apollo style mission. Ended up shorting myself on fuel. I managed to land on the moon successfully, but the lander didn't have enough fuel to get back into Mun orbit and rendezvous with the return craft.Back in LKO, I've almost finished my first mothership, the Sulaco. It's a beast meant to shuttle other craft around the solar system. Though, now that I've assembled it all in orbit, I've already got about a dozen ways to make it better.So, tonight after work I'm either going to go for another apollo mission (with more fuel this time) or start construction of mothership 2.0: Manifest Destiny.
Saberus Terras: If you're on the KSP forums, you can try taking a look at my crazy jet boosters, flown right they make solid and liquid rocket booster stages seem terribly inadequate.
Gnaglor: That amount of effort, planning, and talent could be put to so much better use on real world issues...
Gnaglor: Mike_LowELL: You live in a world of 'eh, that's good enough.'
Barry McCackiner: Gnaglor: Mike_LowELL: You live in a world of 'eh, that's good enough.'I can't tell if you are a troll or not. If not, again, go fark yourself. The productive people will be productive regardless of the distractions of the world. The people who are going to spend their time pursuing personal hobbies are going to do that, regardless of the hobby or century in which they do it. It is a wash.
Honest Bender: Now I'm all up in KSP.
Treygreen13: Speaking of survival building games, anyone else playing Don't Starve?
