What would a more realistic Minecraft look like?

This header is so appropriate

I really am confused when I hear gamers complaining about the “poor” visuals of Minecraft. Dammit people, pretty graphics don’t equal a great game – unless of course we are talking glorious 60fps at 1080p. Anyways, Minecraft certainly has no shortage of mods or texture packs which makes the blocky world look a whole lot better. What if the game were made to be completely realistic though (at least, as realistic as Minecraft can be), with shiny visuals and enhanced gameplay?

Thanks to Kotaku, I’ve now discovered. Flashcode Minecraft Animations.

Hi, I’m Flashcode and I make mostly Minecraft animations using Blender. I almost always do my videos in a style of making them look realistic, or more detailed than normal Minecraft

This YouTube channel offers some insight into what a new Minecraft could potentially look like –if Microsoft ever decide to make it and move things forward in the visual department.

Here’s the latest upload on the channel, showing what an attack from a skeleton would be like.

It really looks neat. I love Minecraft as it is, but I would totally play this new version were it to ever be created.

This next video, uploaded over a year ago, calls for some fresh underwear.

If you have no idea who the heck that is, it’s Herobrine, a mythical figure who supposedly haunts Minecraft. I remember when I first read about him. Before then, I had been playing Minecraft carefree for months. After though, playing solo in the wee hours of the morning became stupidly terrifying, because I half expected to turn around to see those lifeless eyes staring at me in a lonely, unexplored cave. My one friend swears that they spotted him in the nether. He is a myth though, at least, I hope he is.

There are a bunch of other videos to check out which make realistic Minecraft look awesome, and I want it. What do you think? Do you like things the way they are, nice and pixelated, or would you willingly move to a new version like this if it were ever created?

  1. I play Dwarf Fortress. That minecraft rip-off has some slick graphics in comparison…

      Um, Dwarf Fortress came out three years before Minecraft. I’m kinda curious as to how it could possibly be a Minecraft rip-off, even if we accept the claim that they’re basically the same game.

    Saying Minecraft needs better graphics is like saying Lego should be more like Playdough

    In terms of a game, The Tomorrow Children. That is a more incrediblely next gen looking Minecraft.

    It’s neat, but the clash between the realistic graphics and the Minecraft artifacts (like throwing down little blocks to make big walls, or picking up objects by standing near them) didn’t really work for me.
