I would like to debate this topic.

Explanation
=============
Lots of young gamers picked Minecraft up as their first game. I have nothing against it. It's fun to some degree. But it really bugs me that a lot of young gamers think it's the best game ever. I will prove that Minecraft is NOT the best game ever by supplying various facts and arguments that say that there are better games out there.

10,000 Character Limit.
BoP is strictly on Con.
72 hours to argue.
1 month voting period.
Open to anyone

Con must argue in round 1, and they cannot argue in round 5.

Good luck to my opponent!

===============WARNING===============
This debate might get awkward because of me.

OK. Before I start I must say I have very mixed feelings for this one. I think it can be, it has the potential, but other games are like that too. This is an opinion debate, so you can't actually support anything with that many facts. (Just putting that out there.) #1- Minecraft has a huge community so that these 'young gamers' can take in what to expect from video games. #2 Basic Coding (Java) . Minecraft can be modded for better experience. #3 Low Performance Requirement. Minecraft can run on the slowest of systems, so you you don't need a GTX 980 and an i7.

Thank you for accepting the debate

Opening
===========
I would like to remind everyone that the debate is NOT "Minecraft is Bad". I have nothing against Minecraft and I have fun with it. This debate is "Minecraft is NOT The Best Game Ever". The reason for this is because there are so many Minecraft fanboys out there who say that "Minecraft is the best game", and it bugs me. I don't believe there is a "best" game, there are a lot of GOOD games, but none are the best. All I need to prove is that Minecraft is not the BEST game. Which means that at minimum, I just need to rebut Con's arguments. Remember, there is a fine line between "good" and "best".

Arguments
=============
1. Gameplay
Minecraft gets praised by gamers about it's gameplay. Why? Because it's new. The survival mode does provide some fun and can be a great time-passer, and creative mode can be used to express your creativity, and is also a good time-passer. But it isn't the BEST. Minecraft is good at what is was made for, but things like RPGs, FPS', Narrative, RTS and TBS? It's not good for those. Minecraft fanboys like to say "Minecraft can be modded to make it better". Sure, it makes it better, but the game still gets boring afterwards.

Rebuttals
===========
1. Community
How does this make Minecraft the best game ever? Lots of other games have large communities (TF2, SC2, COD, Battlefield, Street Fighter, DOTA 2, WOW, Pok"mon, and many more). Large communities can help a new gamer know what to do in video game society, but Minecraft isn't the BEST choice, as there are lots of other great communities to go to.

2. Basic Coding
Although easy to get into, you simply CANNOT make a game on Minecraft. If you want to learn how to code a game, I suggest Unity 3D, as there are little to no limitations, as it is a game engine, not a game. Let's face it, all mods add are new decorations are OP weapons and armor or unbeatable bosses if you try to kill them without spawning anything in using creative mode. After downloading pretty much every mod, the game gets boring. The game is still Minecraft, and there's nothing you can do to change it. If you want to play a different type of game, play a different game.

3. Low performance
While this is true to some degree, my windows lags when playing multiplayer. These servers have a hard time keeping track of all the players, and the computer has a hard time rendering all the players and showing what they are doing. Even on single-player the game lags a bit, I've seen some of my friends get so much lag that they needed to restart the game. There is lag on Minecraft. Also, other games have low graphic settings which aren't too demanding, so people with low performing computers can play them.

OK look im not trying to start anything but minecraft has to be the worst game of all time i mean you might as well play legos because you are a block that walks around and builds stuff what game does that and if you try to tell me its a really good game don't take this personal but in my case you are a noob.

I said I had nothing against it, I have fun with the game, It's just that it isn't the BEST game out there, I don't think there is such a thing, it's a good game.
