My friends and I have recently started getting back into Minecraft. I played a little when I was a kid, but this is the first time in like 10 years I have picked the game back up. Let me tell you something, I am so bad at the game.
I am so bad that it is to the point that my boys are getting a little pissed at me. Somehow, no matter what I do, I end up killing a horse that has some significant meaning to them, or I break a block that somehow ends up controlling their source of materials. It is just always something with me. But why am I so bad at minecraft? Here are a couple of reasons.
For starters, besides Killing the Ender Dragon, which is a totally optional task, there is really no objective to the game. That is where I think everything goes wrong for me. I like to have a game where there is a clear objective, and I know exactly what task is asked from me at a given time. With Minecraft, the only point is to build your little towers and either hide, fight or just go to sleep in order to evade the creepers and zombies. Yes, that is sort of fun on its own, but when I work hard to build my little structure and gather all my materials only to then be attacked out of nowhere by an enemy, it really pisses me off.
I also just have no idea what I am doing as a whole. All my boys are able to craft these powerful weapons and armor, and I am just running around constantly like a chicken with its head cut off. The only time I am able to get good weapons or materials is when I steal them from my friends out of their boxes. Then, I end up dying and they get pissed at me.
I also am just a tiny bit of a pain in the backside in general. Killing my friends just never gets old for me. It doesnt matter how mad they keep getting, whenever I get bored in the game, I just run over and murder one of my boys making them lose all their stuff they have worked so hard for. I then pick it all up and use it for myself until they eventually kill me back and the cycle continues.
The bottom line is, and even my friends have said this, that Minecraft simply is not made for me. I cannot just sit there for hours on end listening to the calm music and building stuff. It is just not in my nature. When all is said and done, I am going to either have to mature a little and not kill all my friends over and over again, or I can just wait until they get bored of Minecraft and go back to only playing Call of Duty. If I had to guess, I really do not see myself stopping my toxic ways, and my boys just need to accept me for me. If you enjoy Minecraft, good for you! I, by no means, think it is a terrible game or that people should not play it. I just know for a fact that I am not meant to play it.
