Why are guys your age playing minecraft? I understand why younger kids love it, but if you are into the sandbox genre, I believe at ++ 16 years old, games like minecraft could be easily traded for something way more mature to spend all that creativity. EX: 3D modeling with 3DS Max or Blender (free).
Feel free to object, just my 0.2 cents. Every person I met who play minecraft had very immature behaviors.
im 18, i just play to build cool things i think up and want to visualize. its like playing with legos: most people who use them are kids, but some people are just looking for something easy to make models with.
Minecraft is the the most complex yet simple games ever. There is no age limit because there is so many different things to do and different ways to expand. Its almost like real life in the fact that we haven't discovered every possible way of doing things or being more efficient in certain areas. I think it's cool that they are bringing it to the console and I'm excited to see where that goes.
