I hate that I am not loving this game like I was before.

Suggest something cool for me to build/do. Hopefully putting the spark back into the game for me! :D

I have hidden the antidote within your version of the game. The antidote to what you ask? Well that, sir, is for you to find out. Enjoy.

I think that if you're done, you're done, but you might wanna try one of those challenge maps from the forums?
Sods over there make a plentora of maps with all sorts of challenges...

If you can suggest a free (good) game that I have not yet become bored with, I'd thank you for the suggestion. Currently, I can not find anything.

I am actually taking a break from Minecraft for a while. I looked at 1.8, but other than the larger biomes I see little that it has to offer. A server I used to play on is going to make a new 1.8 map, I may play then. But I'll likely wait for an update that introduces more content. The new biomes are cool, but they just don't allow for much more gameplay.

@McShank: You do realize Minecraft and Terraria are nothing a like? Or are you just trolling?

@Louse: When was the last time you actually played? They've updated it pretty regularly and have added a bunch more stuff. Chests now need keys, bosses have been tweaked, a bunch more items (useful and decorative) keep getting added. Werewolves are being implemented. They're still constantly getting more interesting stuff.

There's even a hardcore mode where dying deletes your character. (Other difficulty settings too).

I've been playing each update as it comes out. While I have been very pleased with the updates, both in frequency and in content, they don't really add THAT much gameplay in terms of hour-age. Each update I go and do all the new stuff, netting me ~2-3 hours of play. There's only so many times you (well, I) can murder skeletron before it gets old. I only glanced at it, but I got the impression that the werewolf was just costume (forgot the correct term) items. If I am wrong, and it is a creature... again, nifty, but not really netting much new gameplay.

And I don't like the idea of hardcore, it just feels lame to me. I would want hardcore to just simply be much harder, not delete my character.

In agreement with your statement to McShank, I never understood people comparing Minecraft to Terraria. I have played both with enough hours to become bored of them. They are both great games, but as far as gameplay goes they have little to do with each other. It seems weird to me, as I have heard people go as far as to say Terraria is a "rip off" of Minecraft. I never saw Terraria and Minecraft as being anymore alike than Gradius and Grand Theft Auto. Sure they have a few vague concept that are the same, but on the level of gameplay there isn't a lot they share in common.
