    No one even brought up Call of Duty so why bring it up now? Were you trying to insult my tastes or something just because I think Minecraft is terrible?

    Man, it really has been a while. I completely forgot that Minecraft fans are extremely salty and toxic when you say anything negative about their precious game.

    I tried this and it was a cool, unique experience, but I cant sit and play this for any longer than 5 minutes due to the shallowness of the game compared to the endless adventure that modern day minecraft provides. It is cool for a browser game and to show off to friends but apart from that it is too shallow.

    There's a difference between not enjoying a game and making objectively false claims about it when you haven't played it enough to evaluate it. I can respect plenty of games I don't like for what they are and still don't have to enjoy them.

    this one seems even more lackluster than the free version they used to have in like 2013, that one had servers and stuff

    I think, just like Legos, most people love it, but it just doesn't get on well with others. I've put so many hours into the game; solo and with friends. I play it probably once a year, for like two weeks straight, and then forget it exists until I come back to it. But some people I know have never enjoyed it. I think it's a game that you have to invest a lot of creativity into to get back from, one that's simple for lots of people to be able to play it, perhaps to its detriment in gameplay, or its what made it so appealing to wide masses of people. That might not be enjoyable to everyone, but I do think it's an overall good game at least.

    I don't even blink twice at replaying nes games, but something about Minecraft and its default look feels like it actively attacks my eyes. As in, it hurts me to see it. I've not felt pain like that since the time i tried out a virtual boy at one od those in-store demo kiosks.

    Now that was a migraine in the making.

    So how long do I have to play it to be able to evaluate it then? I've played the game quite a few times since 2012 in hopes that it would improve and offer more, but you keep making some gatekeeping excuse as to why what I say doesn't matter. So, please, tell me how long I have to have been playing to meet your criteria.

    It's a piss-poor argument to not even try to refute what I have said and instead just try to say what I say is invalid because I don't meet some ridiculous, imaginary time-played requirement.

    Not once have I seen a digital version of Minecraft on sale. PS3, PS4,Wii U, and Switch. I don't own xbox but I'm pretty sure they had their exclusive sale to boost the minecraft player base on it.

    I couldn't even play it. Mostly was watching wife play it on PC and then at the time, when at an in-law's house and they had the Xbox One version of it up on their big tv. So of course there were no mods of any kind in the latter, and that shit hurt my eyes, it was so bad.

    I really miss the more basic world generation where we still had flat plains. Now even the plains biome is ridiculously elevated, and the mountains are just ridiculous.

    Oh, and if anyone on GBAtemp hosts servers, someone should make a Temp Pixelmon server.

    If that were the case, then I wouldn't be able to play anything earlier than the PS2 era, but that's clearly not the case.
