Seriously, not trolling here, just want to understand the rationale behind the ridiculously primitive graphics in Minecraft.


It's intentional - once you understand that the entire game is based on modular blocks you realize why.

FWIW, this game chews CPU harder than you would think - it struggles on machines that are only a few years old.

I've played it (OK, only for a few hours), but just could not get used to the "low-rezness" of it. I like the blocks idea, just wish they could come up with some higher rez textures. No, I'm not wanting something like Crysis, just some higher rez textures would be nice.

You can always just get a higher resolution texture pack. Default minecraft is either 16x16 or 32x32 (I can't remember), but I'm pretty sure I've seen some going up to something like 512x512, maybe higher.
