You're totally spot on. Not every game appeal to everyone and seeing the success of Minecraft...it clearly is doing something right and many are liking it. I'm not a fan myself but I acknowledge the success and popularity of Minecraft. But it's kinda funny when all of the sudden that the point of playing Minecraft is questioned now that it's coming to PS4. Why noy before?

There is no point because it's a terrible game.

You're right, because it's not a game... It's a lifestyle.... *_*

To survive. There's no experience quite like burying yourself in a hole in fear because you hear the zombies everywhere around you and you got stranded to survive the night while you were hunting for food because you were starving!

The game is seriously pretty intense at times.

I know many people who like the game, but I have never seen the appeal of it.

Minecraft has no explicit objective or goal. You literally have to make your own fun. That's what makes it unique and that's what makes it fun.

It just dosent appeal to me.

For me it is fun for about 30 mins or so until I make a house or castle then I get bored once I have some sort of bed and hide away...

same for me... once i find some diamonds, it just gets really boring. I can play for a little longer with friends, but i always end up running around doing nothing. It would be fun if i was creative or good at art stuff lol

just to lose yourself in this wonderful charming world

To be creative, and to share your creations with the world.

To create adventures, and play them with your friends.

To build a fantasy world, and make it unbelievable.

Minecraft has come a long way, and I have personally been playing since Alpha build. It has been amazing to have. My Girlfriend loves it, my friends got hooked on it, and I've downloaded tons of mods that have just made the game infinitely more expansive. If anything it's a game where the imagination runs wild and you can build your thoughts in a blank canvas.

=D

Minecraft Only -> Gets boring very quickly.
Minecraft + Mods -> Makes the game much more cerebral.

It's anything what you make with it. I'm more of a Engineering man myself, so I built an automatic pig breeder and cooker. Also, used Villagers to spawn in iron golems to make an Iron farm. The possibilities are endless, but you have to have an imagination, and opened mind.

I like that there's some decent discussion on this. I do love playing Minecraft and it is an odd one for me. The game is decent and it is without a doubt a success. I just bugs me sometimes and I'm glad there's some discussion. Thanks for getting involved everyone

I find the hardcore deathban servers pretty fun to play on. It gets pretty intense when you know that if you die you have to wait a week to play on it again.
