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

I hate this game. I wish it could die. A game this bland does not deserve its popularity. And yet a huge amount of people still call this the "best game ever." Let me compare this game with what is also usually considered the best game ever, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and compare its game-play elements to Minecraft. Also shut up, just because they are two different types of games doesn't mean I can't compare them. That's like saying I can't compare Pop music and Rock music, and say why one sucks and one is better.

Let's start with game-play: Ocarina of Time is incredibly fun. It's always so satisfying completing a temple or finding secrets (unless you read a guide on the internet :/). You gain many tools throughout your journey and they are all very fun to use. Combat isn't too amazing, but it's still very fun. As for Minecraft, the biggest secret is... finding diamonds. How about tools? What can you do in this game? uh... farm. Combat is, well, uh, bland. ...more - sanaralerx

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

2 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

Minecraft makes people hypersensitive to criticism and makes them rant, silencing the voice of other user who has the opinion. You're called mean if you dare diss something they like. - thisisaveryrandomusername88

Fan base sooo bad only one kid in my grade likes it

3 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...

5 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.

Worlds with one mod: No problem. Worlds with two mods: No problem. Worlds with three mods: No problem.Worlds with four mods: A bit of lag. Worlds with 5+ mods: Computer explodes.

6 The Game by Itself Is Boring

When I started playing there was no huge servers everything was nice it was a great game but now it's just so boring for a couple reasons. 1. Bill gates is sitting on his ass and says "Let's buy Minecraft" 2 weeks later There's a new update! Oh "Bug fixes because we don't give a ******* About you there hasn't been a real update for like more then a month now at least release some plants for god sake!. 2. Fanboys... They are the worst they are all 5-9 Year olds playing a great game and they just ruin it! I used to play on a server called "The Nova" In 2012 for a long time back then it was fun mining and working together not with noobs just real actual people I got so obsessed with that server until slowly more noobs started showing up like the first noob I remember was MLGplaer3790 he would beg for food because I was like rich in that game because I had played a long time. But he was a wuss and he never fought cuss he was like "Fighting is bad" and I'm like ...more

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.

The game slowly change wich make it boring when you play on a game during 10 years and all they just added is new blocks and useless mobs - Creasmo

7 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.

Hey, it is not that bad.

8 The 1.9 Update

I hate this update, the feel of the game is not the same anymore. In the beginning, it strayed very little away from reality and was a charming game for being so simple. Now the simplicity is ruined because of 1.9, they could have just stopped large updates at a point but they didn't. Remember when it just started getting popular? When the music actually described the game's nature, calm and creative? I remember. I remember when this new game was so exiting to me, I could just sit down and watch people play it for the first time, listening to the music I never got tired of. The point is, the game never needed this expansion, it didn't need more difficulty. They could have just let the players explore using their own creativity to make a fun game even more fun.

You know what I really like the 1.9 update I know some people will be really disappointed but you just need to get over it, Minecraft had the same combat for a long time and sometimes it's hard to do new things but come on fights are more fair now before it was like "I have the worlds fastest mouse and you have a slow one so I win" but now you need to wait I little bit and here's a fact. Minecraft mobs when hit can't be hurt for 0.5 seconds and the sword charges for like lest then a second (I'm not to sure how long it is exactly). So it's time to finish from a change so end of story. P.S everyone has there own opinion.

The Combat Update was a pointless update and completely destroyed the combat system. For whatever reason, you cannot swing your sword for 0.5 seconds and you need to wait for the small meter above the crosshair to fill up. By the time you figure all of that out, you are mowed down by arrows or killed by a large group of zombies. - namcokid47

At least add guns. - Theco

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.

Again, a youtuber doesn't make the game - DWisawesomethe3rd

10 Stupid Graphics

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.

A good game doesn't need good graphics. Shovel Knight came out in 2014, yet it has 8-bit graphics, (or maybe 16- bit I can't tell the difference). That didn't stop it from being a really great game. - SocialMediaStinks

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.

Just use a texture pack with shaders and optfine. The problem with Minecraft's graphics isn't that they are low res. No, the problem is that they plain suck and that Mojang has terrible pixel art skills. There are some good packs that you can find even under the 16x resolution. Wayukian and Pixel Perfection being good examples of good 16x texture packs.

The Contenders

11 It's Overrated

It's great for little kids, but there is no challenge to the gameplay, and actually building anything takes willpower far beyond most people anyway (especially kids). The most common thing I hear about it is "your only limit is your imagination in Minecraft". Truth is, the limit is your patience, as building anything impressive (like a small office building) takes over 4 hours to create, and larger projects can take months or years. And at the end of your time, you only have placed down a small bit of your project, and almost anyone, especially kids, give up.

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.

I still think it's okay, though. - IcetailofWishClan

17 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.

I'm 13, but I can agree, kid players SUCK. All they do is sit on their fat butts and rage at the game when they are at fault for their own stupidity! I just use Minecraft for its building purposes. I NEVER play on servers because of these little rats.

It sucks being a "kid" minecraft player. I am not like those cussing kids and I love red stone. When I am in creative I will ALWAYS start making red stone stuff

Adult when cooperating: Yeah we won due to teamwork!
Kids when cooperating: Kid 1: I DID ALL THE WORK YOU NOOB
Kid 1: 1V1 ME LOSER

Kid 2: HAHA
Adults: Bye.

18 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

Ack! Read my comment on Stampylongnose. Youtubers don't neccesarily make the game worst, most of the time. But yes, I do admit 5 year old children squealing "BUTTER! " Does get annoying.

19 Frequent Low-Quality, Meaningless Updates

Most of the updates aren't pointless. I like the addition of colored clay and glass so I can make better adventure maps and better creations. The bunnies aren't pointless. They can be food and using commands will make them kill you. And as for the temple that is underwater you can just bring sponges. There are a lot of them in the temple so use one of them. you can kill the guardians and keep placing sponges. Yes they may not be NEEDED but they do improve the experience for those who want to keep building more detailed things and those who want harder dungeons. Also you already sed this above. Now that I mention it. You keep reusing the same arguments. You just change one word and suddenly it's a new argument. Your argument is invalid

It's funny, you keep on using the same thing over and over again, but you change some words. Delete some things on this, you are getting more repetitive than Phineas and Ferb (I like the show, but its repetitive.)

Frequent? Updates are like once a year! - SammySpore
