The new Minecraft...

Back in the day of the Minecraft 1.7 patch, I used to have a lot of fun on the game... this could be making random red stone wizardry contraptions or going onto online servers and having quests with friends. But as the patches have gone on I found the game to become annoying and tedious.

The main reason from my let down for this game is the addition of the hunger bar... No longer can I go onto an online survival server with friends to have fun mining for diamonds as we construct a house and survive without spending an hour looking for an animal to kill to get food. Some people say it makes the game more realistic... But I don't want realism I want to have fun! If i wanted realism I would go to the Amazon and get lost, I would then punch a tree to get wood and treat my self to a nice cup of piss. Sure there is a creative mode. But that is tedious and has no challenge to it because everything is given to you. I still enjoy the game and now that me and a few friends now own a server we can do what ever we wasn't and the hunger bar is now no longer an issue. Furthermore the game has gained some additional things that I like for example I now know if I'm tunnelling and there is a lava or water source behind a block that I'm about to dig through, and also the addition to breed animals so if your lucky enough to find 2 of the same animals near your house you can potential have an endless supply of food.

Overall I have nothing against this game and would recommend it to people who haven't played it before but nothing can beat the glory days of Minecraft 1.7


  1. i really enjoyed the old minecraft, wasted some hours in that game........

  2. I still play the minecraft flash version online. I had the actual game but got falsely banned for griefing.. Oh well more time for skyrim!

  3. I like the new game is as fun as the first one.
