Hey everyone, it is Andrew here again. I felt like addressing a new topic today.

So, if you guys aren't familiar with the latest snapshots, basically, Minecraft has had a large variety of biomes added and plenty more other stuff.

Here starts the rant:

I think that these biomes are cool and all to look at as if it were like an aesthetic mod or add-on, but I really feel like these new biomes really stray from our normal in Minecraft.

An example would be the new canyon biomes. They look GORGEOUS with the stained clay and the hills and rocky looks of it. But I really couldn't think of a build to match the stained clay around it, for me to even want to build there. These new canyon biomes, in my opinion, only serve the purpose of stained clay and aesthetic. That's it.

See, some biome additions such as the birch forest, I can see as a good addition, as it really doesn't modify your gameplay experience. It's just some trees piled together, like a normal forest. But I don't want to be walking around and see a giant canyon that has no use.

And some additions like the nether portals being modified to fit different sizes is great and all, but will the next fellow Minecrafters really know the classic nether portal design anymore?

New fishing mechanics? Brilliant. One of things I completely agree on about their new snapshot. More fish, fishing treasures, fish moving effect. It's about time.

New flowers? I guess they are good for aesthetics for builders and such. R.I.P Rose. :(

I just really think, at this point,. Jens is really separating from the old feels of Minecraft, that Notch was doing. I mean, there is plenty of additions that I love about Minecraft now that Jens added like horses, and that stuff, but really now. The game has changed too much, in my opinion. I think that if they continue to go on this track of modification to the whole game, it'll be a entirely new game. It won't have that classic feel of Minecraft.

Thanks for reading my rant, and if you liked it, be sure to leave a diamond. Have any suggestions on what I should add/remove to the rant? Comment below!

If you ask me, Jeb is ruining the game Notch made.

I mean really, Notch kept the game simple but fun, Jeb is trashing it with all this crap.

That is my opinion.
Thanks for your opinion!

Leave a diamond if you enjoyed!
I just have. :D

Just let the old Minecraft you knew be a beautiful memory and embrace the development of the game as it moves forward. I think that adding more to the game all the time is what has helped keep the game alive, as well as the community of-course. But if the game had remained in the early stages, I think many would have stopped playing it.

With the canyon biome, treat it as a flower if you're unsure what to build in the biome, just let it be an aesthetical aspect like flowers, it doesn't need to have much purpose, getting stained clay and red dye is all the purpose it needs. Now that I think about it, new dungeons/mine-shafts and villages would be cool to have in the canyon biome.

I think that minecraft has become too crazy. I enjoy many of the new additions, but I don't like flowers or the new biomes. I can't say I love older minecraft but I really wish they didn't add some of the new features. I just wish they put more effort into performance and making the game less glitchy, but instead they keep adding more and more, it's too much. I don't want there to be that many biomes, it's just becoming ridiculous.
Thanks for the comment!

I think they're pretty cool, but nothing can ever beat the original Minecraft!
