Forums - Gaming Discussion - Notch (Minecraft creator) has emotional breakdown to the Minecraft sell, ex-employees, life, etc. on Twitter

Seems like a case of constant hangover/drunk depression. Really messes with your thoughs. He should cut down partying and sober up, then see if the sun shines any brighter. I'm sure it will.



Around the Network

Not much sympathy really, and if I had a tonne of money, I know how I would pass the time with hobbies and projects. Nothing extravagant and I would prefer for other people not to know - that's somewhere I have a bit of sympathy for Notch, he didn't ask for fame, but it seems as though he likes it from his PR and social media, just look at him here.



Now playing through: Fallout 4 (PS4)

PSN: beeje13, XBL: beeje13 x

Too many other titles that are on my wishlist to mention here. And a backlog :O

Console history : PS, PS2, Gameboy Advance, PS3, PSP, PS4, Xbox One...

This!!!



As someone who has been given a lot in life and have still gone through depression and all those other feelings, I do feel for him. However he has all the money he needs and so he should really use it to benefit other people. Start a charity, create an orphanage or make a new game.

Based on the "assholes who MADE me sell Minecraft" comment, I'd say there a bit more to this story than that.

I would personally open up a new game studio and start churning out AAA titles. I'm sure there are programmers in Sweden who need jobs, and I'm sure there are some old Mojang employees who want to get the band back together.

Poor guy, Whats the point in having everything if it comes at the cost of your mental well being and your relationships. On the up side he can buy anything he wants to divert his attention.



 

It seems his problem is more that he spends his money to have a workfree life etc.

Start a new company is what I would do. Doesn't have to be a gaming company either, his 1.75 Billion should be enough to start a company within basically whatever industry he desires.

And of course I feel for him, he's fuckin depressed. Money doesn't help with that. Just because he's a billionaire doesn't mean he's not a person.

Just because someone puts themselves in a situation doesn't mean you can't feel for them. I can understand what it's like to be in a lonely situation like that I went through the same thing myself when all my drug highschool friends lost control of their habit and I went on to finish college and work in the corporate world. He'll get through it I'm sure and I wish him the best.



I do indeed feel for the guy. Money can buy a lot of stuff, but it can't buy happiness. It's why most celebritues end up taking drugs since they need to fill the void with something. Not to mention, having a ton of money usually means that you'll get very little symphaty as shown by all the answers in this thread.

His fifth tweet is like when a super hero loves a woman but this woman doesn't want to be with he superhero because of his powers/crime fighting lifestyle. Sure he has super powers ( Which a lot of us want ) and sure he can probably date a super hot model thanks to his powers, but does that really matter when you can't get the woman you love.



We all know Sony domination is a real thing and there is nothing Microsoft or Nintendo can do about it....
