Whats the point of Minecraft??

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Ok i know that there is going to be alot of people like "what the *****&^&%&%*" but i dont get minecraft. I played the singleplayer mode on there website and all it was a giant sandbox? Like is there a point to the game all i did was build a little house and then it just sat there...there was no objective to the game so whats the whole point of the game?

The free version there is no point. the paid version is extremely different.

Paid version has survival mode, basically you have to make a shelter before night fall, otherwise monsters come out and kill you.

It's kind of like asking what the point of playing with LEGOs is...

Except legos doesn't have zombies!

The paid version is more or less the same. Except for maybe more zombies.

If the creativity of building whatever you want with the blocks doesn't appeal to you, the Minecraft just isn't going to be your cup of tea.

survival mode isn't that impressive...you just build a basic wall around yourself and you're safe. My 2c: it's a pretty lame feature.

Basically it's just a sandbox game...
