I don't know why everyone thinks this is such a bad idea. Do you all have any idea how many shows and books there are out there telling stories that take place in Minecraft? Kids eat this stuff up wholesale.


People on forums tend to hate Minecraft, CoD, mobile gaming, etc... They hate anything that is popular, especially if it is more popular than their favorite series, hence why you will notice a large distaste for Minecraft in the pro-Nintendo community. A.) It isn't on Nintendo consoles and B.) It's currently more popular than anything Nintendo related with children. Ask most kids if they play Mario or Minecraft and the large majority will say Minecraft. It really is THE game these days, whether the forum goers like it or not.

Minecraft is what children want. It sparks the imagination. It encourages building, whether it be alone or co-op with friends. When my daughter plays it she treats it as if she is playing house. Builds pens for animals, builds homes and towns with residents and pretends her character is a someone who lives within this pretend world of hers, much like she do if she were playing with dolls, which she does as well. She prefers to play in creative so monsters do not attack. For her it is entirely about playing in an imaginative world that gives her total freedom to play the way she wants.

When she isn't playing Minecraft she likes to watch Stampy and learn from him cool things to make, along with enjoying him hanging out with his Minecraft friends. Sometimes she tries to get me to play with her and pretend we are making our own stories and videos.

The game is fantastic.

Loved the TWD-TellTale Game, technical was not the best. Was excited about the Game of Thrones since it is my favourite series. Was disapponted at the technical site again since they made a lot of money with TWD and really could have done something better with GoT .. scenes and animations are terrible ...

but now, you can really see the "Just pick a name that made a lot of money and would still do and make a TellTale-Game of it" .. I will pass it. That is just dump. Really loved the company, but now, i just don't wanna hear anything now. And just for notice, it is not (only) because of this minecraft-announcement.



Wait, so this isn't a joke? Wow. This is so bizarre.

Isn't the whole appeal of Minecraft the open-ended sandbox style gameplay, pretty much giving you the ability to make your own world and come up with your own story as you go along? A point and click adventure game just seems like a strange choice to me, its like the polar opposite of what fans enjoy about the game.

I tried ignoring it just you wouldn't show up. 

My plan failed.

What is wrong with Minecraft gameplay? I'm now inredibly curious as to what you find to be an issue.

It isn't pacing to become the best selling game of all time because people don't like the gameplay. The gameplay is fantastic. It encourages imagination and building, similar to that of LEGOs.


Don't get me wrong, the building system is quite good...its just everything else that is garbage.

The combat is absolutely terrible, especially in PvP, the bosses are quite possibly some of the worst designed bosses I have ever seen, the terrain generation is far too simplistic and uninteresting, the mob system is badly integrated into the core philosophy (mining+crafting...so why do mobs drop pretty much nothing useful?) and the difficulty scaling is practically non existent, eliminating pretty much all challenge after about 30minutes of playing if you know what you are doing.

Basically half the game doesn't understand what it is supposed to be and creates a pretty terrible game to make the building more interesting. A lot should be done to overhaul the combat and redesign the mob system to better integrate it into the core philosophy of the game, which would make it feel a little more unified. I think the worst offense are the bosses which are broken and terribly designed, but have so much potential in a game like this...

To be honest I have not played too much survival so you are likely very valid in your concerns. I was just going on what my nephews both say as they play exclusively in survival and seem to love it, granted kids do not find things to be faults where we otherwise would. Hopefully future patching and updates can help to fix the issues you have.

I play almost exclusively in creative and that mode, at least for me, has very little or nothing for me to complain about. We both obviously played it for different reasons. I might actually find many of the same complaints as you if I spent a lot of time on survival, however my daughter doesn't like playing on that mode.

 

 

I would however like them to introduce the advanture modes like I found in the PC version. It was nice downloading a few packs that has fully created adventures with their own quests.

I can tell you have kids.  It's really the only game I'm 100% with my kids spending time with.  It's a fanastic game that builds imagaintion.  There's a reason they are using the game for education.

Get over your BS generalizing of Nintendo fans thing already. You sound like a broken record.

I hated the game way before it came to PS or XBOX, and I don't see why people are unallowed to dislike a game now.
