Realistic Minecraft is a Whole New World to Explore

Behold Minecraft fans, I have found your new wallpaper.

Despite everything I’ve heard about it, I have yet to actually play Minecraft to see what all the fuss is about. My biggest issue is that it sort of seems like a big timesink with no real purpose to it. I’m not going to spend hundreds of hours crafting a life size replica of the USS Enterprise, but I’d probably be pumped to even build a house with a roof.

The above picture shows what it might be like if Minecraft lost its blocky signature look and used actual real world textures in the game. Looks cool, but sort of destroys the concept.

Is Minecraft worth my time to play?
