Minecraft Game Review
No other video game has brought out my ingenuity like Minecraft. I spent many hours getting out of the blocks, collecting the necessary materials to complete the next art that would only catch the eye of my mind. I also spent countless hours researching, investigating, and hitting the ground running with brave monsters. My character – my whole world of Minecraft – is always changing to whatever I want to be. I tell my stories, I write my future and I bring my thoughts into life one brick at a time.
Minecraft stands out not only for its inspiring design but also for its unique beauty. Look, I know the look looks timeless and silly, but there are a few games with visuals that are interesting and appealing. I know I’m not the only one who feels that way, otherwise, Minecraft drawings wouldn’t be an icon. Can you take a texture from Gears of War, Halo, or Unchched, put it on a shirt, and have the players point it out? I do not see. The look just works, gives the game a unique and unforgettable beautiful look, and brings some craving to me for 8-bit season games.
I love creating in Minecraft, but my excitement stems from, at least in part, that I have to get everything. Survival mode creates a random world that is empty in your name, forced to collect resources to build food, shelter, and tools. When I built and installed a wooden door in my first mud hut I felt like an owner. Some games allow you to buy a home with the money you earn, but none of them challenge you to find building materials and build your own. When I look at my home and see all the furniture and wall is where I wanted it, I love it the most or change it to my liking. From the time my home was built, my goal was clear: a tunnel in the world so I could find anything I needed to draw a castle in my small part of the world.
Missing Elements in Minecraft
Creating things in Minecraft is one of the most important actions you take. The problem, however, is that the required information is not available in Minecraft. The first time I walked through some trees and gathered wood, I didn’t know what to do with it. Happily, like many Minecraft players, I have had a mentor refer me to various online forums, communities, and wikis. I have pages that I go back to all the time, I usually pull out the game itself when I can’t remember exactly how to build something. For many, this is just a passing fad, but mostly it is a way to catch up on mastering the art. I would like the recipes to be integrated into the game in some way, even if I had to find them all over the world. There is not much feeling accomplished by reading the wiki and following the instructions literally.
Or after getting a good service, it still takes a lot of effort to learn everything. The sheer amount of cooking and equipment in the game is daunting and time-consuming to learn. Most games have bad scripts, but Minecraft does not, and what is available is not easy to digest.
Is Minecraft really that Addictive?
But Minecraft is still more than fun enough to ensure a learning curve. Addiction, however, really starts as you do things and gain strength around you. Suddenly at night, when the beasts give birth and take over the uninvited parts of the earth, it is less frightening. I mean, it’s always a little scary, but having a sword in hand – or a simple, wooden one – adds strength. Like a caveman beating their first spear or setting their first fire, building simple tools and torches in Minecraft can make me feel safe as if I am the master of my destiny because I have the power to do things that can save me.
In addition to security, construction created a new set of principles in Minecraft. I built things as much as possible (tools and flashlights), but eventually increased my record for inserting unnecessary pieces. To finish my first stone finish I had to have stairs and stairs; just skipping a simple series of platforms was not worth the king of the world, right? Building slowly was something I did a little bit to make a living, and more to complete the next big project I had set for myself. Building glass panels didn’t give me an edge in my world, for example, but it made the viewing area of my Star Wars AT-AT look like a lot of badasses. Crafting is even more difficult if you want to. You can build tools and buildings or specify autonomous rail systems, remove them from the stone age to the 20th century, and make you feel like the destiny of my world lies in my hands. It’s fun, and it incorporates a sense of energy that I don’t feel so much in sports.
Self Esteem building in Minecraft
After I found a place in my world, my intentions during my encounter with Minecraft changed. Each time it was fun, where I challenged myself to explore the next important parts needed to find the next recipe. These are the applications they have set for themselves which is why I sometimes enter the Netherlands, another world of hell where monsters – which just happen to throw away valuables – live. Sometimes I go into dark caves, put on molded weapons, and serve as a weapon in order to deal with any enemies I encounter. I don’t know what exactly I’m going to get, or what scary things I’m going to face, but I do it all in the name of finding precious blocks – and the joy of knowing the unknown.
That fun, that unplanned and unpredictable adventure experience, makes the whole session with Minecraft fun. Sometimes I may spend the night doing normal activities such as farming or hunting for food, but other nights I may find myself stumbling across a large, occasional mine full of monsters and treasures. Because each world is made in order, I do not know what to do next. One day my character may be a simple builder, the next he will be a hero overcoming a prisoner who kills horrible things in the dark.
Of course, entertainment is always better with friends, and most Minecraft players are much more fun if you can get it working. It is not broken or completely disrupted by the cart, but requires more steps to get started compared to most games. If you want to start the game you will need to download additional software, and then go through all the online courses to work. Players who want to join the game should know the server’s I.P. address because there is no server browser built into this game. However, annoyance and fatigue aside, if you have the option to play with others you should definitely; exploring, having fun and building hero buildings is a lot of fun with friends. Besides, if you are going to spend many hours of your life building great monuments, you may have someone else to show them. You can post them to online videos, but it’s not like having a friend close to you who participates in your accomplishments. Or, better yet, to make them come in after a period of inactivity in order to marvel at the miracles you have created in their absence.
If you’re not the type to play with others, and you don’t want to get all your stuff, you can always get into Creative Mode. In this world you are invincible, and you have access to everything in the game. It’s good if you want to, say, create a great Wampa from Star Wars, but it doesn’t give me the same sense of reward or accomplishment I get when I play Survival because I don’t have to get blocks or earn my own life while doing so. Many blocks take a lot of effort to find (some even get you into labyrinths full of monsters), so when I build them with My Survival Mode it’s very impressive. Still, it is a pleasant distraction.
As with any review, my feelings for Minecraft are the result of my own experience with them. Maybe you don’t succeed in random events like me, or maybe you won’t feel the same sense of accomplishment I did when I finished my first house. If not, you may not like or enjoy Minecraft in the same way. And that’s okay. Minecraft, more than any other game I know, is not about playing in a certain way; it is an open world, a blank page that just gives you the courage to go in and do what you love.
