The most beautiful thing.... It never ceases to amaze me how a game like minecraft, using minimal processing power, zero budget, and no real plot can be more en

It never ceases to amaze me how a game like minecraft, using minimal processing power, zero budget, and no real plot can be more engaging than almost all major AAA release titles. Moments like this, where you're standing on top of a tower you spent a week building, dodging creepers, skeletons, and spiders, and the sun pokes its head up just enough that the sky floods with color; that is a moment you can't recreate in other games. That sun not only represents safety, but also the progression of time; the hope and promise of a new day. You've finished your current project, so now what? You're never done, and even if you've slayed the dragon and saved the world, you know that there's just one more project to eek out. And in the back of your mind you know that there may always be just one more project. And Notch releases more material, you slowly come to the beautiful realization that the game itself will never be truly finished.
So to all of us who work on endless railroads, automatic farms, and mob grinders when we could easily be cracking skulls in COD, or hiding behind waist-high cover in every other shooter Gears of War, keep at it. And every now and then, take a look at the sunrise, just to remind yourself why you're still playing.

Have a great one guys

"using minimal processing power"

Minecraft has to be the most un-optimised game I own apart from Arma 2. It will burn a hole through my computer for no reason yet other games that are much more detailed than Minecraft like Crysis or Wargame: European Escalation can run without my laptop burning up from the inside.

I want to hug you for letting me know about European escalation. It looks really good.

I've been building Hogwarts in Minecraft for almost about 6 months (I started 19th of March). I'm building the whole Hogwarts castle, every single detail. Also Hogsmeade, the train station, and Hogwarts surroundings.

I'm about 2/5 done. I was thinking about uploading pictures of it onto FJ, but I have over 350, and can't really decide which one, also, would be a really long comp. So I'll probably just make a video of it when it's done.

Here's a picture, but the whole building isn't visible because of render distance issues.

I'm sorry, but i gotta ******* do this, "I got one word for you, PotatoOrgy. Search him, or YT @ Hogwarts mega build w/ PotatoOrgy"

Well, considering he started when Minecraft was at Alpha it's pretty good. But considering almost everything is incorrect and only the outside looks good, I'd give it 4/10.
What I am building is a Hogwarts that melts in with every (official) book, game, and movie of Harry Potter.
I decided to build Hogwarts because every one who builds Hogwarts only makes it nice on the outside, and if you go inside nothing is correct.

I am building a Hogwarts that is beautiful inside, but not so beautiful on the outside. That's what magic is about.

Sir, that is really cool and I would absolutely love to see that when it's done! That sounds incredible!
