    About the whole "it's for kids" thing, that argument and others like it are flawed. People seem to think that because something is specifically made for kids, that it automatically allows the quality to be lower than the standard or makes it exempt from criticism. The argument in general is stupid and doesn't have any ground behind it, and usually the people using this argument don't put effort into it.

      I don't see why just because a game is "for kids" that it would make the game any worse. I mean, you could even consider the Bloons franchise a kids' game.
      On a side note, I think that lots of people when thinking of Minecraft, think of the little kids who play it. They percieve the kids as annoying (which they sometimes are), childish, and immature. Just my thoughts on this whole Minecraft topic

        I think this similar logic can also be applied to Roblox. When you think about the Roblox community, you mostly think of them as a bunch of children who apparently had gotten too much time on the internet.

          You could do math using minecraft.
          addition = right click while holding an item to drop 1 item in a stack to a(n) empty slot/slot with the same item
          subtraction = q while holding an item
          multiplication (how many stacks there are, doesn't need to be full stacks) = can be done just like division or addition
          division = left click while holding an item and then drag. each slot you drag it over will divide the thing you have equally. can have remainders just like in real division.

            Interesting concept. What have you got for powers/roots, algebra, and logarithms? >: )

                  I don't think it's a kids' game, but the community is full of them. I played Minecraft before, back when the community wasn't so toxic. I even played it for... Dunno how long, but over 1000 hours for sure. Now games like Minecraft, Roblox, FNAF... They're all known of their extremely toxic fandom that are mostly kids with some kind of mental issues.

                    that must be why Markus "Notch" Personn left Mojang.
                    he must've thought he failed.

                      You seen the end of story mode? He didn't fail, he did what he set out to and more.

                          Your point is? The game was not a failure in the man's eyes, that's the actual point.

                              I kind of looked at that game like a kids game that was not weird for people over the "kid" designation to play.

                                The community is just filled with kids (me included until today); there are still some more mature people who play Minecraft, but they're just a minority under the amount of grammar-deficient children. It's amazing how they can't spell their own game but can spell Obsidian, yet not even Gold, instead can spell Diamond but not Snow.

                                Really, it also drives me mad when they say a certain thing originated from Minecraft. Really, I just got a kid telling me 'Minecraft is not popular, kid' ((note even called me the kid here)) in response to me saying stuff about mining. Other things I haven't experienced but most likely will may include "DIAMONDS ARE FROM MINECRAFT" or "SAPLINGS ARE INSPIRED FROM MINECRAFT" or "GUYS!!!!!!!1 SOMEOEN JUST INVETNED A HOPER IN REALZ LIFE!!!!!!??? YOU KNOW FROM MINECRAFT?!?!?" when all these three already exist IRL and if anything is what INSPIRED MINECRAFT, not the other way around.

                                Just wish the kids knew a tiny bit more. At least just spelling and grammar. I enjoy the game myself, building a noteblock contraption of my favorite nanahira song of all time.
