  • I love it anyway

    Just do whatever makes you happy. I don't hate the game at all and I think it's a fun game to play with your friends. I just don't think there is a purpose besides entertainment. Not everything we do needs to have a specific purpose, so haters that also say yes, think more about the question maybe.

  • Ab so lutely

    I think this is the dumbest game to ever exist because you are not getting paid like the nerd you are. When you can be putting hours into actually working on social skills, you are wasting your life away on this game. This is not a smart way to spend your life. Learn from notch himself who quit this game years ago.

  • It Brings Friends Together

    Last night i was playing minecraft with two of my good friends having a relaxing time creating our new house and mining. I think minecraft is a creative outlet for children of all ages. Our house "Homie Central" clearly indicates the friendships which can be formed through a hardcore gaming session with your brochachos. Peace :)

  • No It Shouldn't

    Minecraft is a game which enables critical thinking in young minors, it provides a creative outreach on the world and gives many individuals a chance to make their dreams come through. In some schools around the world this wonderful game is played as part of their curriculum proving it is a necessity for our youth to grow and thrive.

  • Relaxation is a Necessity for Healthy Living.

    Psychological studies show that humans need "down time" from the stresses of life. Constantly working and stressing out will diminish health. For some, stress relief may come in the form of watching tv, listening to music, or playing video games. Minecraft (obviously in the later group) servers this purpose for many. It is a fun activity which is relaxing and allows us to focus our attentions on something other than the stresses of life. For that reason alone, it has psychological benefits and is therefore, not a waste of time.

  • Reader, Please Just Enjoy What You Wish to Enjoy

    Frankly, by this logic, all games are a waste of time. If this question is meant on a level topic of if the game brings out fulfilling enjoyment or has a benefit coming out of playing the game, then I could see this topic on a more broad scale.

    According to certain studies, video games are able to promote better hand coordination and upscale information processing. And yes, gaming can help one learn in general. Minecraft, on a general scale, can help the younger, targeted audience learn social skills when they play multiplayer and not by themselves.

    Calling a game a 'waste of time' is subjective in itself. Everyone has their own unique opinions of what video games they find enjoyment out of, such of Call of Duty or Mario. Is it the player's point of view of whether they find enjoyment out of a certain game or not. And if a game such as Minecraft can achieve a large fanbase (young through older) then changes the perspective of it being a 'waste of time'.

    Above all, one shouldn't base on some debate platform whether a game is a 'waste of time' or not and see for themselves if they enjoy the game and not follow some bandwagon of what people think because their opinion is the loudest heard.

    I'd say 'no' to the 'waste of time' because this voting debate is just not cutting it to even be summed up as a debate, especially when the majority of the voters for the 'yes' side on this debate can't appear to coordinate what they exactly doing without making a pointless comment such as 'because it's a dumb game', or even the 'no' side where some of the people can't seem to coordinate well on their words in general.

    Reader, please enjoy what you wish to enjoy without someone telling you what to and what not to enjoy. Thanks for reading, and furthermore...

    Be yourself.

  • Some schools use minecraft

    Some schools use minecraft for learning so they are not a waste of time plus over millions of people have it so why would they have it if its a waste of time I am also glad that only one person said yes it's a waste of time i love it so yeah

  • Time is wasted, regardless

    Time cannot be wasted, because, quite basically, it is not a finite resource, our lifespans on the other hand, is finite. And regardless of any activity you do, from the second you get molested by the OBGNY who slaps you in the bum bum to satisfy his/her sadistic need to hear new borns cry, you are slowly and Sherlly dying, and so, anything that you do, be it having bam bam, or having an intellectual debate about whether time is wasted when playing Minecraft, or playing Minecraft, you will one day die, and everything you have done with that finite lifespan of yours would have been for naught- unless of course, you value the later generations’ opinion of the products created with the time you had, but ultimately, even so, you, as you, will no longer exist to feel pride- not that the pride you felt while still breathing is in anyway more meaningful- yet another concept that is subjective. Quite eloquently put: When you die, the world dies with you.

    Then there is an economic premise for considering what is waste and what isn’t. Opportunity cost. Some might say that instead of playing Minecraft you could be inventing the cure for cancer. But what they failed to consider is that even if you weren’t playing Minecraft, you are in no capacity to be doing anything else regarded as more important, for instance, going to work, bam bam girlfriend, clean out the gutty works, because of al things that you could do (assuming you have the knowledge and physical ability to carry out the task) you prioritised playing Minecraft, as such it is by a perception that could only be generated with the resources you have had on hand, you chose Minecraft above all else. So the opportunity costs of using your lifespan to play Minecraft, is everything else that could be, but they all paled in comparison in value to you because they were either choices you could not perceive at that time, or you had perceived them and made the decision to play Minecraft anyways- so either way, in making a decision to play Minecraft, it effectively boasts the highest value of all the choices perceived, and those unknown, rendering it the best use of your finite lifespan.

    As such, in choosing to play Minecraft, it is effectively not a waste of time- something so tell my girlfriend when she wants me to spend time with her; talk about selfish right?
