Which means most people will buy it, play it for a couple days and then never touch it again. Not worth my money if nobody is going to play it seriously. I would rather just play minecraft on difficult or something.

I am not going to buy that because if I am going to play a game like that for me it will need much better graphics then Minecraft.

Then you should look into StarForge. It's also on the Unity engine but the world is smooth as opposed to voxel. It's in early stages of development as well.

7 Days to Die too. They've done a lot of work since the Kickstarter to improve, well, everything.

There is one I am watching, and Minecraft is not bad.
One common thing I see with the average Minecraft user is that they do not understand java or 32 bit vs 64 bit.
Minecraft (even says this in game) recommends 64-bit java to run the best it can. My Minecraft client uses 4GB out of the 6GB I am letting it access at the main menu.

Never mind all the viruses you can get due to java.. In fact wa only last month some one asked me to sort there laptop out which ended up being a java backing up unsafe content. They quit playing MC even after i told them the chances are you did not get it due to MC unless you download stuff for it.

More often than not, I find that it's usually a user who doesn't know better who downloads something that is seemingly okay when it's not and Java just happens to be the way that particular piece of software leveraged (I mean, why not? Most machines can run Java applications much like how most users have Windows.) Java might have its issues but how you use it also has a big impact on how badly it can hose your machine. Java alone isn't bad by any means and someone who knows what their doing can avoid issues.

Also with that said, there is a lot of software that businesses use and rely on every day that use Java or some derivative of it, off of it, or on top of it. I wouldn't imagine companies who rely on languages like Groovy or Clojure to do it because it's an insecure platform that keeps your front door open at all times.

A Java virus is in the same boat as a regular virus. How did the person get it? It's not like Java went on the internet, found a virus, and ran it because it felt like it. Don't blame the software for the shortcomings of the user. Being knowledgeable about the technology you use is important.

Even if the virus got on the system while s/he was playing or downloading something for Minecraft. I would guess it was some ad on the internet that gave him/her the virus.
I have found the best solution to prevent viruses is to use an ad-blocker.

It is very bad. The fact it has no unsigned primitives means lots of unneeded conversions which results in horrendous code. You know how easy it is to convert someone from Java to C#? Just get them to download Visual Studio Express and C# sells itself. Java is garbage. If Microsoft committed to .NET working on Linux and Mac, Java would likely be phased out over 10 years.

Minecraft has absolutely no reason to use 3+ GiB of memory. It's just one sign of how poorly it is designed. It also is very CPU dependent where games are increasingly becoming GPU dependent. I've looked through some of Minecraft's decompiled code a year or two ago and it is nothing short of a trainwreck.

I don't run vanilla minecraft.
Android mostly runs on java. Do you say android is garbage?
Decompilied code has proven to be 100% accurate to the original source now?

Only the UI of Android is Java-based and compared to Windows Phone, yes, it is garbage. Windows Phone uses a fraction of the hardware resources Android uses and it achieves a lot more (transitions, animations, etc.) with it.

It's not decompiled, it is reflected. Decompile implies machine code and JVM/.NET don't run machine code. Reflected code is functionally identical to the source code. The only thing that is different is there are no comments and internal variables don't have their original, (should be) descriptive names. My comments were about the functional parts.

Totally reminiscing here. I'm so grateful @BondExtreme made that video that's in the OP. I'll repost it here because it's awesome:

I gave in on MC a long time ago, didn't seem to be moving forward. How ever seems like 7DTD is, slow but it is.

Minecraft Story Mode made me reinstall it but it only took all of an hour to remember why I quit. :roll: I thoroughly exhausted myself of Minecraft back when the server was up 2011-2013.
