) Is Minecraft Dying? (



Is Minecraft dying? That it the question many players ask themselves. I'm here to explain it all. So, let's start with the basics.

Minecraft is a sandbox indie game originally created by Swedish programmer Markus "Notch" Perrson  and later developed and published by Mojang. It was publicly released for the PC on May 17, 2009, as a developmental alpha version and, after gradual updates, was published as a full release version on November 18, 2011. A version for Andriod was released a month earlier on October 7, and an iOS version was released on November 17, 2011. On May 9, 2012, the game was released on Xbox 360 as an Xbox Live Arcade game, as well as on the PlayStation, both console editions being co-developed by 4J Studios. All versions of Minecraft receive periodic updates.






) My Opinion (



Every day Jeb continues to work on Minecraft adding new updates. Some good, some bad. I understand Jeb's effort to keep Notch's masterpiece going, but every game has an end. Even if Minecraft is a game with endless possibilities, it will eventually end. It's sad but it's true. Look on the bright side, one door leads to another. By that I mean Minecraft could lead to something even more spectacular and fascinating.

Well, in my opinion, Minecraft is most likely dying due to the usless updates. Minecraft is no longer what it used to be. Some people like to refer to it as "ModCraft" I understand Minecraft is a great game for mods, but I feel that Mods are taking over Minecraft. Eventually, we will run out of mods. Also, the updates, yikes. The glitchiest horses I've ever seen. And fishing enchants... just why? And the zombie tracking is absolutely blood boiling.

What I am trying to say is. Minecraft is becoming to complex!  I honestly think it should be more humbling. For example, how about some birds or peaceful animals? We seriously don't need mobs that just ruin the fun of the game. I can litteraly go on for days. But I will end it here. With my final message.

Minecraft Will Die..

And, y'know, with all these plugins and everything, Minecraft has come so far from it's original survival aspect...

Now minigames are ALL the rage.

EVERYBODY WANTS THE SAME DARN THING. >_<

I see your point about constant updates they can actually ruin old adventure maps. But is minecraft dying maybe it isn't what it used to be. But for me I just love making maps redstone is the most amazing creation in a game next to command blocks I have seen and making maps and building should keep it alive into the future. But a minecraft 2 with updated graphics like todays graphics could work who knows. Anyway good blog

many players ask this question? I've never seen/heard anyone wondering if minecraft is dying, this is actually the first time I've seen someone writing about it. Neither have I ever heard of "ModCraft" :S 

Besides, it's almost like the sun - one day it will "die" (turn into a white dwarf or something?) but we won't probably live to see that day

minecraft is the 3rd most sold game ever (I think) just right after Tetris and Pokemon, maybe people will go on playing it because there are always new versions.Pokemon for example is still played by lots of people maybe minecraft is the same way...the only think about minecraft that annoys me is that 1.8 version...they're planning to release it for months now, but they keep adding more and more things....

What do you mean by glitchy horses? They seem fine to me. I also find none of the updates useless. Anything new is good to me, unless the games gets too modernized. If it goes towards the cars and guns and stuff... just no... But if we get crossbows and airships.... thats different.... Minecraft has more of a "old" feel to it and it needs to stay that way.

hmmm....
1. Go play older versions
2. Minecraft will die when the community dies, and the community dies when Mojang stops updating the game.
3. Play more pure vanilla survival. You'll understand.
4. Zombie tracking makes the game more fun. Imagine having full diamond armor with useless zombies, it's not fun and makes you want to throw your armor away because it becomes too easy.
5. Horses don't glitch on my computer. Maybe lag?
6. Mods will never run out because the Minecraft community keeps expanding and people's imagination and creativity will not run out. I mean, they're not mana or something that decreases everytime you use it.

oh. then i think you should play on singleplayer for a while. It's quite fun since the only sentient being is you and nothing changes in the world after you close. Also you start on a brand new world, which most SMP servers don't as most players had left their mark there.

So Minecraft is dying because there have been a few new features you didn't like. oh okay than. Minecraft really is only complex as you wanna make it. I'll agree with the horse and zombies bit, But what's wrong with the fishing enchantments? What does "We seriously don't need mobs that just ruin the fun of the game" even mean? And yeah every game dies, but unless theres reason to believe it'll happen in a reasonable time frame (opinion doesn't count) why even bother stating it?

I disagree. The MC community is growing every single day. Mods are being made, updates cranked out. Of course Minecraft will eventually die, but not for a few years at least. (That's my opinion)

Uhm mods won't run out -.- Theres a new mod being made every day. And there is a thing called "Updates". Updates keep the game going. Jeb is trying his hardest and figuring out a fun new update that the whole Minecraft community will love. Sorry if I sounded rude about this ^-^

The updates keep the game alive. The features may not be most useful every time but it still shows that the game has not been abandoned.

It's only dying if you can't accept change.
If people keep going on about how the game is only getting worse that's what will continue to happen.
Jeb and the rest of the rew are trying their best. Don't continue to update if you don't want to or try and convince Mojang to listen to the game you want.

I love it when a game becomes complex personally. It means I have much more to do as when I get bored of minecraft an update comes so I have more to explore, to find, to build, to mine, to craft. But I do agree that some of the updates are useless. I mean from 1.7.5 to 1.7.10 were useless but its the updates like 1.7.2 and 1.6.2 that make minecraft much better. I mean 1.8 is bringing bunnies.... BUNNIES!

It might die, but I doubt it'd dye. Besides, there's no hair to dye.

I don't think it will die any time soon..People need to chillax a little. So many people mix nostalgia with the actual quality of the game. I think some of the updates that they are adding are pretty good. People can't get satisfied with anything. -.- I'd go more in depth on this topic but this blog is not the greatest either so I won't even bother..

And your genius idea for an update are birds? Really..? I can imagine how that update goes. "Oh hey look, they added birds!", 1 min later I'd get bored with birds.. lol Well, birds could be like a side side side side little update that would only add a little to the atmosphere and experience..nothing too cruital that'd keep someone busy.

Reading this makes me think of a similar topic, who will take over once the devs we have now get tired and decide to pack up and leave. Some famous development will probably take over. But still, what will they do? What will they add? What will they break? Who knows. But it makes me think a lot...

Also Diamond thingy for you.

Dying? It has been dead since it reached beta 1.5. That's went the fanbase turned into a bunch of 9 year olds having spasms over a green pig model. That's when they decided that it should be a complex game. That's when they screwed up. Minecraft went from a good, simple, time waster, to a breeding ground of autism. Now it tries to be like an rpg, instead of what it really is. Think i'm lying? Look at the kind of crap posted on here on a daily basis, My little pony, minorly altered items, and worst of all, the same 4 skins over and over. I'm talking the teens with the hoodies and bandannas. Same 4 skins on repeat. Then everything else is dominated  by a green pig model and a crappy attempt at a greater evil, I'm talking creepers and endermen. You think it's dying? Minecraft is already half rotten six feet in the ground in a hastily built, moldy, wooden coffin
