    So, if the societal norm for how difficult something was "you young whippersnappers have it so easy….Why in MY day we (insert activity/thing considered 'hard'/'complex' by the standard's of today's society here)"…
    Does that mean Minecraft is the videogame inverse, where the young gamers of today use Minecraft as an example of pointing out that the older gamers 'had it easy'…?

    I have traveled through treacherous caverns fighting hordes of the most dangerous creatures in hopes of finding a chest containing one of the rarest materials in the known world. An apple.

    I have idled for a week and all I got is 4 jars of Jarate.

    Y'know, you can just use buckets. Put the lava into the shape, square by square, cooling it into obsidian with a bucket of water each time. You don't need diamonds to make a nether-portal.

    I've made an infinite source of water, an infinite source of cobblestone, and traveled deep into the depths of the earth for a skeleton spawner. I then methodically orchestrated the immediate (re)death of every single one with a bit of lava found yet deeper in the cave. I extracted and ground meal out of their bones. Then I sprinkled it on my crops.

    Y'know, because I'm impatient.

    Totally worth it!

  7. Alpar on December 13th, 2011 6:49 am

    I've typed for seconds and seconds

    using nothing but wit

    to finally be able to craft the easiest thing you possibly can in Minecraft that you can here too.

    A comment.

    Inversely, I have a lot of what can be considered the less precious of all minerals sitting in my reserve:


    I can know the time of day by looking at the sky, and my rollercoaster is already complete. The tools break before you can use them, and the armour has many weaks spots, including one that makes it ineffective against skeletons:

    There is nothing to protect one's knees.

  9. spartann30 on December 13th, 2011 8:06 am

    hey man, that fireplace was totaly worth it

  10. TomQuoVadis on December 13th, 2011 9:31 am

    It's finally all set up! My fireplace is…hey what the- MY HOUSE IS BURNING DOWN!

    This is what I get for thinking wool was a viable building material!

  11. Wetmang on December 13th, 2011 9:39 am

    I mine the land, so I can build more pickaxes, so I can mine the land, so I can build more pickaxes, so I can mine the land, so I can more build pickaxes, so I can mine the land, so I can get more cocaine…

    In all seriousness though, cool post. it's just that as of late I've heard a growing number of people are being labelled Autistic for playing any game that has the slightest repetition

    it seems to be stemming from this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detai

    You know, the sad part of this is that he doesn't even get to stay warmer by that thing.

  14. Fluffy_Quack3r on December 13th, 2011 10:35 am

    It's funny because its true…

  15. Chimental on December 13th, 2011 10:43 am

    Though to be honest, it was easier than finding the clay for those bricks.

  16. HughbertEsq on December 13th, 2011 10:51 am

    I have traveled across the land
    Searching, far and wide…

  17. shadow649 on December 13th, 2011 10:56 am

    Can't you just set 2 blocks of wood on fire? And instead of needing diamond you could make obsidian using lava and water buckets.

  18. OrionX on December 13th, 2011 11:17 am

    Have you ever really sat down in front of the fires of hell? Eternal damnation is actually quite cozy.

  19. GenCasar on December 13th, 2011 11:59 am

    Afterwards, I plunged back into the depths of hell
    Traveled to a remote fortress across lakes of lava and mountains of brimstone
    Hunted creatures that could mercilessly set me ablaze at a moments notice
    Returned to my world to hunt creatures that could teleport away from the slightest sign of danger
    Crafted relics of unspeakable power to guide me to an ancient stronghold buried by dirt and time
    Unlocked a portal to a Lovecraftian world of terror, whose king is a nigh-unbeatable black dragon
    Engaged this dragon in combat, finally and miraculously defeating him
    Looted his (her?) most prized possession, a dragon's egg
    Listened to a somewhat confusing poem

    Just so I could have an impressive looking mantlepiece.

    You rape our land, steal our treasure, disturb our graveyards and spirits; and yet you call me the monster.

  21. Trainer_Black on December 13th, 2011 1:25 pm

    To bad we can't tear up the earth and plunder the depths for some nice looking rocks to put around our fireplace-ohwait…

  22. MasqueNoMercy on December 13th, 2011 2:16 pm

    oh shit! you can make a fireplace?! … guess i got a reason to play minecraft tonight :D

    also i seem to need reasons to play minecraft, i don't feel the pressing desire to constantly play… i never even made my underwater utopia like i wanted… does halolz still have a minecraft server? i never got in it :-

  23. C__F on December 13th, 2011 2:30 pm

    Do things the mundane way? No.
    I'll build extradimensional spheres to encapsulate horrible monstrosities to move continents, bend time and space, and create landmasses and oceans.

    <img src="http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/9/93/Bag_Pok%C3%A9_Ball_Sprite.png&quot; /img><img src="http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/c/ca/Bag_Great_Ball_Sprite.png&quot; /img><img src="http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/0/03/Bag_Ultra_Ball_Sprite.png&quot; /img><img src="http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/6/6d/Bag_Master_Ball_Sprite.png&quot; /img>

    So I can have the perfect world. And not have to make it with a pickaxe unless I so choose.

  24. ChemicalKirby on December 13th, 2011 2:37 pm

    I guess getting the princesses is overrated.

  25. killercartoons on December 13th, 2011 2:54 pm

    That's dedication if I've every seen it.

  26. kirchhoff42 on December 13th, 2011 4:13 pm

    pff you only need lava, buckets, water and flint and tinder

  27. TheInsaneWombat on December 13th, 2011 4:19 pm

    To be fair, that is a bitchin' fireplace.

  28. MasterGamer64 on December 13th, 2011 6:08 pm

    in my day… ppl were resourceful making wat they could with wat they had… I now know the most valueable item besides diamond tools….. nukes….

  29. dope92 on December 13th, 2011 7:44 pm

    fear the enderdragon

  30. PortalMan118 on December 13th, 2011 7:47 pm

    A……fireplace……..I went to hell and all I got…..WAS A FIREPLACE!?

    To be fair though it looks great.

  31. Ernac on December 14th, 2011 12:03 pm
