About a million gamers would probably disagree with you, but that is the entire point of gaming; everyone has their own opinions and preferences. I personally prefer not to pay $60 annually to play Call of Duty for example when it is the same regurgitated crap, while I paid $20 for a single time for Minecraft and as long I have a project idea to work on. The more creative a person is, the experience in Minecraft will scale with it.
Now if you are a person who's standard of good gaming is to have good graphics above all else, Minecraft is not the game for you. If you are the type of person who needs an established goal or "point" as opposed to figuring out or creating one of your own, then Minecraft may not be the game for you. If you are the type of person that has the constant urge to kill or shoot things, then Minecraft MAY not be the game for you.
Sure you may be able to rig up awesome stuff in CAD or with Legos, but that is not the purpose thus far with Minecraft. Minecraft appeals to many people, because it is whatever they want it to be. Me and my friends are building a huge world of just random projects. My roommate is working on a bio-dome that covers 1/4th of the map. I have built prisons, a treasury, four houses (underwater, in a mountain, and in the sky) and explored. I have seen people record and blog about their experiences exploring the world (it is huge and there are some truly captivating sights). You also have people attempting to bring in scaled reproduction of landmarks from real life or movies.
Minecraft is not the game for you. That's fine. It's a game. It is not meant for everyone. If you want to play with your Lego's that is fine too.
