Reasons Why Minecraft Sucks Now

I will be coming up with SOME of the ideas why Minecraft is terrible. I could care less about the fanboys who will be butthurt that I talk shit about Minecraft. But for those who can take criticism and notice something that makes the game horrible (if it hasn't been said yet) go right ahead and add something to the list. I left some of the top 10 blocks blank (3-6) for the people to think up of something.

The Top Ten

1 Fanbase

The truth is, the Fan-base is just way too big now for the game to be likeable. I started playing Minecraft nearly three and a half years ago (Version 1.2). At this time only the geeks in the corner knew about it, multi-player servers were never as packed and the game had a far more irregular, thrown together and make-do feel that made it so loveable. It was still full of bugs and it's content was far smaller, which was in ways limiting, but it made you use your brain more and ultimately made your achievement's far more satisfying. Also, because it was smaller, the Fan-base felt closer and far easier to relate to.
Nowadays, the Fan-base is annoyingly large. The game has lost it's independence, it's became far more advanced, which is nice but it has lead to the community being flooded with 9 year old's with no imagination or skill at all. Servers are now jammed full of these players and now everyone knows what Minecraft is. It's became despicably mainstream! YouTube is now ...more

Wow kid, You must be stupid than a chicken mate. Minecraft is Overrated - Super64Mario

This is the thing, the fanbase is annoying. I learned about Minecraft from underground YouTubers about 5 years ago. The new players just learned it from SKyDoesMinecraft or CaptainSparklez. I learned about it when the Yogscast was called BlueXephos, Kwantonium, and etc. Now I just see a fanbase of 6-12-year-olds, I am 13 but not the annoying fanbase that just says stupid crap when I hate on SkyDoesMinecraft or CaptainSparklez. As a Minecraft veteran, this fanbase is a bunch of annoying prats and on servers they just say Roblox sucks and try to play with YouTube gamers, THEY ARE NEVER GONNA GIVE YOU A SHOUT OUT. I personally think Roblox was better than Minecraft, yes you young annoying prats may think Minecraft is "THE GREATEST GAME EVER MADE" yeah, not. I personally think that RPGs or puzzle games are better. The fanbase copies everything, from counter strike to zombie games. I think that the modders are better and these young prats can go play their Minecraft, just don't be so ...more

I learned about Minecraft from my brother, who I have no clue how he knew about it. - Trenchpit777

Game is the worst ever made. Here's the reasons (for single layer survival mode):

Weapon enchantment/repair sucks, you can't make OP equipments (like fully enchanted bow),

Graphics sucks,

0% reality game,

You lose all your items when you die,

When you go to bed and wake up the monsters still there and your crops didn't growth,

No Tutorial for WHAT to do,

There's bunch of different worlds,

There are no XZ limit, meaning that you have to go far to find rare biomes,

You have to make your own map,

Hard to find home if you go to an adventure,

Sometimes you spawn in a island in the middle of the ocean (when creating a new world),

You can kill your own pet,

Lag as hell (because of it being made on Java, the slowest Programming Language ever),

No tutorial for HOW to do things,

You have to keep looking at wiki to know how to craft items,

You have to save important locations in the ...more - ErickR

Somebody give whoever made this reason an AMEN!

2 Lag

Pvp lag raises my blood pressure and makes me want to punch my computer.

Especially the PC version, the game lags making the game un-enjoyable. You will have to put down the render distance which also makes the game harder to play. The only way to fix it is to get a better computer or get optifine which doesn't help out the problem that much.

I don't really get much lag. Either it's just a few people with lots of lag, or I am one of the few people that gets very little.

This game made with Java, it's much faster if you play it in android.

3 Bad Fanbase

The fanbase is so bad, it had to be put here twice.

Seriously?! There was something like this already on the list. - Navylexi

This is why I use realms now instead of servers.

The fanbase is so bad, that it appeared 2 times on this list lol

4 The Game by Itself Is Boring

Whenever I play Minecraft, I go in expecting to have a sense of adventure and to find new things. But sadly nothing interesting happens I mean I build a house, which is boring, I hunt, which is boring, I mine, which boring, I even try and kill creatures, which is the most boring considering there pretty decent concepts for a game like this. There's no strategical feel to it I know it's about building but it just doesn't garner my attention long enough to really feel like doing it. Legos may be more expensive but they sure are worth more, I'd even buy those Lego Minecraft sets and have more fun because imagination is waay more fun than this games excuse for strategic building, cause there is none.

The general problem with the game is the lack of versatility and replay value the game has, It may be endless but Once you build everything you need and have bin mining for a while along with beating the EnderDragon and FINALY have everything set up, You will get this feeling were there is nowhere to go, There is nothing left to discover, And the only way to get rid of that is start with a new world day one.

Some are saying the game is awesome, and in no way it can get boring, unless you have no imagination. And what do "people with imagination" do? It all tends to be building a big house, some kind of technical contraption, maybe a farm, kill some mobs (or players, since in this game pvp is no different from pve), but then it just ends here. I mean, there's literally nothing to do, beyond this point, other than build a bigger house, more productive farm, and battle more mobs/players.

Technically almost all games are like that; there's not much to do after the end. - yungstirjoey666

5 StampyLongHead

His voice, face, laugh, skin, and just him in general just pisses me off. I mean sure he is popular but WHY! Everything he does is sooo annoying and scripted. But his fanbase... UGH! If you ever see his skin on servers you know straight away that they are a 5-9 year old noob that will be asking you for diamonds or food. I think his popularity deserves to go to someone that actually deserves it, someone who can commentate, joke around, and play Minecraft in general properly!

Anyways some of you might like him but all I have 1 thing to say to those 5-9 year olds that hate me now... "You're a scrub"

This is THE WORST YouTuber I have ever seen. 90% of his videos are scripted and HIGHLY BORING, his voice and laugh are terrible, and that his fanbase are 4 year olds who have never played Minecraft and just played pocket edition lite. Also most of his videos are on Xbox Minecraft.

While you don't have to watch him to play Minecraft, he is still so annoying. His voice and laugh are so bad and his videos are all scripted and suitable for um... 5 - 6 year olds.

Just thinking of his laugh makes me want to tear out my hair...

Nightmares returning... his fanbase is one of the many stains on YT's reputataion.

6 Multiplayer Is Horrible

Bad servers and bad people there are stupid idiots and hackers who have no life and once I had a base. It was in a mountain it was nice until a hacker hacked it and ruined it! I tried to kill him BUT HE WAS IN CREATIVE THEN HE killed me. after he turned it into a dump and left and he MUTED ME for no reason.

Agree when I was playing in flans mod official server was happily playing until someone hacked me and made me fly I tried to say I am hacked but they believed that I was doing it myself then next thing you know banned from server reason: fly hack. I wasn't hacking myself someone was hacking me and I tried to tell you that idiots and now I'm banned for that!

Multiplayer can have a real negative feedback, even if it is LAN world. Hackers are very common, making the game risky to play safe. Another reason why Minecraft is horrible is the trollers. When progressing through the game meticulously, trollers (which can also be hackers) will annoy you horribly. Some of those trollers can be server hosts... kicking random people out, for fun! Also, there can be cruel people who would rage quit at you and things can get pretty serious. I switched back to singleplayer and hadn't touch multiplayer for so long.

I have no idea why I'm on this website

7 Rules YouTube

A whole speed run of Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time: 2 views. Minecraft toilet appliances: 9,000,000 views.

I am a big Zelda fan and am looking for videos. I look at the recent uploads, and guess what? It was all Minecraft videos

... Then you click on a video and YouTube thinks you like Minecraft so they give you like 1000 Minecraft videos. - Trenchpit777

All I can see in the gaming category is Minecraft.

Just showing maps, cool things, and buildings that are LEGENDARY for a little kid with horrible building skills. They say "Download this map at, they go to the website, hit a random "Download" button, then get hacked, their game gets deleted, and they get away. Minecraft created a whole new disaster to everyone.

8 Stupid Graphics

If graphics don't make a good game, then why the hell would other companies spend so much on their graphics? Anyway even with its low quality graphics, Minecraft is still literally infamous for its lag. Also the graphics spoils my eyes due to low light.

It's not like I even care about graphic capabilities or anything, but in a game where you're supposed to build whatever you desire, I would like it to look nice instead of looking like a pile of crap.

You guys realize they did this so it would appeal to ALL AGES. If everything looked real little kids wouldn't be aloud to play it or be frightened by the monsters - Katekat123

Of course minecraft has the worst graphics for those who say Roblox Sucks You Should Shut Up Because Roblox is nicer,Better,Better Graphics

9 Sky Does Minecraft

Stupid idiot who actually can't play games with out the help of his other stupid friends. He also is an aggravating character to listen to, his videos aren't memorable in the smallest bit and are all the same thing copy paste. But the worst part is that he takes away views from other, better YouTube channels. For example, the YouTube channel Screwattack has been around for ten years and is only getting around to to three million subscribers in recent years, Sky has more than 11 MILLION subs, so I guess not trying is how you get famous on YouTube

THE reason why I hate sky is that he's an idiot and he is NOT funny at all and he is retarded. also Really bad and I really hate how all of the 9 8 or 7 year olds love sky and He is just SO annoying! His voice is annoying too..

And SKY SHOULD NOT HAVE COPIED HIM AND I it was skys fault since sea nanners created the budderr joke and REALLY SKY COPY HIM you shouldn't START IT!

Plus he just hates squid for kicking him and this is worse! "Once I had a base. It was in a mountain it was nice until a hacker hacked it and ruined it! I tried to kill him BUT HE WAS IN CREATIVE THEN HE killed me. after he turned it into a dump and left and he MUTED ME for no reason." yea I think you get it so sky is just a cry baby for geting kicked OH REALLY sky look at the guy who said that about the hacker that is 100 times worse than being kicked so sky is the WORST PERSON IN HISTORY!

Please add this and aprrove it the creator of this list because I am trying to say that SKY is like a ...more

I am not a fanboy I don't even care about him but is your caps broken? Because you caps like 10 year old (no offense but you do) - Aguythatpeopleignores

I actually went back to him when he stopped being pg for about a month and he wasn't as bad as DanTDM in terms of how bored his voice sounds but the problem is, he keeps spamming the same do not laugh videos and they aren't funny, every now and again there was an actual funny joke but most of it wasn't really something for you to laugh your head off at and yet he laughed at every one. I know there could've been one's he didn't laugh at and were just edited out for pacing reasons but it's so repetitive. Now he's gone back to pg because he felt bad for swearing around young children and he wants the people who came for swearing in Minecraft to go to his gaming channel which is literally nothing but Grand Theft Auto mini games and too many plays of games that have recently become popular. I don't think he would be so bad if he didn't spam the same thing all the time.

What an youtuber have to do with a game? You aren't forced to subscribe him. - Vgamer2

10 The 1.9 Update

There's going to be a lot of complicated stuff, like the speed of reusing a tool, holding two items at same time, and etc.

I hate the new elytra thing it killed me in hardcore

Two rocks tied to a stick don't need to recharge!

Weapons cool down ruins multiplayer

The Contenders

11 Difficult Modding

Lol not really I too me like 30 minutes to learn and can download them pretty quick

Scammers who don't EVEN play Minecraft make a bunch of ridiculous ads of fake maps kids keep falling for and getting their computer hacked, deleted content, (Mods, World, Servers, etc.) and glitchy servers that crash every 10 minutes. WHAT WORLD DO WE LIVE IN?! THANKS A LOT MOJANG!

Doesn't every game have glitches and bugs?

Yes... But sometimes the glitches add to the fun!

The glitches in Minecraft do get frustrating

This game is so glitchy, it glitch my body...

13 SkyDoesMinecraft's Fanbase

What's the big deal with Skydoesminecraft? I heard that he swears which is why I'm not watching his videos and he's overrated. I don't get why people like him so much. - RiverClanRocks

Excessive profanity and he hates squids for no reason. Squids are passive mobs. They aren't creepy and don't kill you. He needs to know that diamonds are more valuable than gold.

A random ass 24 year old guy act like an immature 5 year old so kids could laugh at him for his stupidity in the nutshell

I like a british diamondcart way more than a guy who says butter all the time.

14 New Alex Skin

... Why is this in the list? Whoever created this reason must've been against women.

Horrible, Some kids that don't know how to change their skin are boys and like their Steve skin. Until 1.8 Update had been made, a lot of boys quit the game because their skin was a GIRL!

Someone was either really drunk or was/is against women when they placed this on the list but anyways the new Alex skin isn't half bad it even has a pvp advantage (which sucks)

Well, Mjnecrafts fanbase is mostly male and would prefer to play as male.

15 YouTubers and Kids

Thank you! Thank you! Kids who play Minecraft don't know the greatness of playing other games. They are on Minecraft days at a time, me I can't bring myself to play Minecraft again after notch left. Kids like these are under a horrible spell of addiction and they need to be helped the first thing you should do if you are a sibling of one these children is

1. Delete Minecraft
2. Burn anything that has said password for account
3. Smack them when they throw a fit about you deleted there favorite game and tell them I will teach you.
4 introduce them to a good rpg like fallout
Or dragon age.

Horrible, a lot of mean people are changing their skins to popular Youtubers and make the name VERY related to the REAL Youtuber and kids go crazy and use the little kids who love that Youtuber and use them as servants or tell them to give them their rare armor, kill them to lose all their items. Or a bunch of OTHER things I can't think about.

Basically all of minecraft popularity - darkstar123

This game might accatually be worth playing or at lest giving it a second try if here weren't all these stuped 5-9 year olds playing it

17 Pointless Addons

People say "keep playing Minecraft because there's a new update! " The problem with this is that the updates now add stuff like new stone that's really ugly, or new mobs that interact with the environment in the exact same way as any other mob, or a new dungeon which is impossible to get to because it's underwater. Updates mean the game is now packed with extra crap.

Plus the updates are incredible inconsistent. the wait between 1.2.5 and 1.3 was 1 YEAR!

The game keeps on getting stuffed with pointless stuff (kind of like Windows before being shipped). Enchants. They are NOT with the vibe of the game. Minecraft is definitely NOT a fantasy/RGP game. XP. Wow. "I'm level five! " and? No point. Beacons. Cheat codes. Hunger. I got into alpha version and LOVED the relaxed feeling of the game. Then along came hunger and made the first thing you do, no not punch trees, but BEAT THE FIRST PIG/COW/CHICKEN TO DEATH.

Ever since 1.5, Minecraft has become much worse. Horses were taken from a mod, and lots of useless blocks were added in 1.7. WHO CARES ABOUT GRANITE OR ANDESITE? That's completely pointless. That is what spoiled the game. Pointless Add-ons made the game unnecessarily complex. Minecraft 1.5 was the pinnacle of the game.

There's this thing called building I THINK YOU SHOULD TRY IT if you use some of the new blocks there are countless ways of decoration for them!

18 It's Overrated

OK, so when I go on the internet, there is a TON of Minecraft content. Like seriously. We see all these stupid 4 year olds just on the internet posting their Minecraft art and complaints and stuff, that is EVERYWHERE. Like we care. If you play with people your age(I doubt you would even touch this game though), it's somewhat ok. You can build semi-decent stuff, but when you play with 4 year olds, they make trash art and try to make "houses". They also SCREAM SO LOUD IT MAKES YOU WANT TO RIP YOUR EARS OFF!

Yup. Overrated indeed. If I made a list of top overrated games, this would be the highest.

That's google and youtube fault we shouldn't blame minecraft for that. - Vgamer2

Yes, yes. Minecraft is overrated.

19 Hackers

God, hackers. They ruin the game for everyone. I remember one time when I played on mini game with a hacker. He dominated the game and when I tried to report him, nothing happened!

Too many Hackers... I really hate them. when I play Hypixel= Life Boat. I die out of nowhere. why? Invisible hackers. I got so frustrated I stopped playing Minecraft.

Hackers can hack you, making you do impossible things in a server, causing the host to think you are hacking and ban you while the hacker laughs off.

I got so sick of hackers that I started hacking because it is so unfair.

20 No Tutorial

If you first play the game, you are a noob otherwise known as a loser. I don't get it. If you're a pro, that just means you play Minecraft a lot meaning you have no life. Their should be any cool types of people because this game is actually for nerds!

Regardless of the fact that the game is about as easy to learn as any other sandbox game...

Kind of annoying for new players, but there's always Wikipedia.

The game has no tutorial, which makes the game all the harder to play if you are a first time player. The only way you know how to do something is to go to the Minecraft Wiki.

True I had to learn from my friend but Minecraft is still BEAST I tell you

And shut your mouth! Needs make more money than you do! Just ranting away huh?
