    Does anyone here still play Minecraft?

    I have been trying to get back into it. Back in 2012 or so, I LOVED it. I would spend 3 to 6 hours a day playing the darn game. There were times when I would play it all day even. I feel like the whole "magic" of it is gone though. Like I try to play it and just lose interest. I end up getting bored within 30 minutes of starting the game and I can't figure out why. They added so much since I first played, I would think it would be more enjoyable but it isn't. I don't get it. Am I the only one?

    I think I played it once for 45 minutes. Perhaps I was already too old or nobody in my peer group was playing it so I didn't have any urge to play more. A lot of my friends' younger siblings played it religiously and that led me to see it as a game for kids. Since there isn't any particular narrative, goal or characters I don't really care to see what it has to offer. I'm not a creative person, so the idea of an endless world in which I must build things is more of a personal Hell than a video game.

    The same thing happens to me with some older games that I used to play and that are updated to this day. When I re-visit them I don't have more enjoyment equivalent to the amount of content added. It's very possible that you squeezed it for all it was worth to you. Plenty of MMOs that I dabbled in for a month or two years ago have been updated weekly since then. Upon my return, I just bounce off and don't enjoy it.

    Could you return to a box of toys from when you were a kid and still have as much fun playing with them? I'd wager not. It may be intensely nostalgic, but it won't be an engrossing and fun experience like it used to be. That's probably a large part of why I'm such a sucker for JRPGs. Due to their focus on narrative & especially characters/character development, it feels more like revisiting a group of old friends than revisiting an old toybox the way I feel Minecraft is.

    That reminds me of when I used to play with toys and have them talk to each other. I don't remember when I stopped doing it. It almost seems as if one day, I just stopped. It is weird. I understand not being into the game. A lot of people aren't because there is no set goal. The first time I played, I thought it was stupid. The second time was on PC with a group of people from another forum and I really enjoyed it. I like creative games though so I get more joy gathering supplies and building things in the game vs anything else.
