Seriously though, my son plays this (always thought it looked dumb) but I see people talking about monster killing missions and netherworlds and stuff...none of which I've ever seen my kid do.
Minecraft is A LOT OF GRINDING. it really does chew through the hours. Now I can see why Minecraft has even passed up Black Ops in terms of gaming time according to Major Nelson. May actually pass up MW3. Already left BF3, Halo, Gears of War, etc. in the dust.
if you're just casually watching someone play, all you'll see is mining and block laying.
and yeah, the only reason to hunt for monsters and enemies is that they have resources that you can't mine for. so you have to be brave and venture out at night to get them.
