    With the two different versions of Minecraft available on PC--one of which being the crossplay compatible, easy to jump into, more stable Bedrock, or Java, which has so many mods that you could never dare count them all--which one do you prefer?

    And, if you still play Minecraft, would you have interest in picking it back up to play with your fellow GBAtemp users? :toot:

    the features java offer are still far above what bedrock offers, like a set view distance slider, while bedrock has a dynamic one that scales with hardware
    and for some reason higher render distances punt graphics cards way harder on bedrock than it does on java

    you can also have shaders on java without REQUIRING an RTX card

    Being that I am a Linux user, I pretty much only use Java. I have used Bedrock on my phone, tablet, Switch, and through an unofficial launcher for Linux but I am just more used to Java at this point.

    I can't imagine most people here'd choose Bedrock over Java. On a site filled with the modder type, with a decent amount of dedicated PC users? Yeah.

    But my pick's Bedrock. It runs much better on lower end PCs, and crossplay with users on mobile and console has come in handy multiple times. Java's cool, but Bedrock just works better for me.

    I'm more used to Java, and I prefer the available mods, hands down.

    But Bedrock is just so much nicer. I just wish they'd finally get mod support really going for it...

    I like bedrock better, mostly because of crossplay and the achievments.
    It's fun playing on the switch with a friend of mine, but goddamn, the starting menu crashes to many times while trying to load my windows char.

    I've been playing minecraft since when the bedrock edition wasn't a thing- really. it was somewhere in 2012. - and I've also been playing on PC most of my life. Of course I played PE a lot too as a kid, but when they released the Windows 10 version of Minecraft... It just felt so off to me. the only pros I could see from that was being able to play with PE players, but that's all. I played it for few minutes, went "Nah, I ain't playing like this." and switched to Java edition.

    I honestly prefer Java, even though it hurts me sometimes thinking how smooth Bedrock is on my PC, it's not worth the lack of choices for people that want to mod and just take advantage of the massive ecosystem of content for Java.

    Java is just better in every way but Bedrock is fine too as long as you don't need anything beyond vanilla. It's nice that you can play the mobile version with people on other platforms.
    Java has achievements too. They're confined to within the game but they still count.

    Agreed, although mods like Sodium have helped, it's probably never going to be as good as Bedrock which is sad.

    I think that C++ is better than Java, but the Java version of MC is better.

    If i had the ability to run it smoothly to, I would choose java. The switch version is... mediocre at best and a laggy, buggy mess at worst. I can't imagine how the other versions run
    (also where's my boi legacy edition?)

    the only problem about bedrock is that the marketplace exists and some servers are using it to be pay to win
