    After seeing this, I kind of want to see you do a full on creative Lego build, now. No instructions...just all from your imagination. A mega base Lego build! Lol...maybe not so elaborate. That'd take quite a bit of time. I'd still like to see you come up with some interesting Lego builds, though.

    Another thing to note is that, since the build is called "The First Night," most people would probably be building this type of building in survival. Because of that, you'd have to take time to gather materials for the build itself, and then it would take much longer in total.

  • Finn

    As someone who plays minecraft and makes lego sets weekly almost, I think that the good part about legos is the amount of time it consumes. I think that is the fun of it. But when it comes to minecraft, it is quicker and easier with a preset world. (Unless it is superflat) I think that they are both fun.

  • Hey hey it's Jae
    Hey hey it's Jae 3 years ago

    One thing I adore about LEGO Minecraft is that all the sets have little gaps in the support structure underneath and (the older ones) have bricks jutting out a level under the baseplate. These allow you to quickly and easily place builds next to each other and (optionally) link them together with a single brick. You can build pretty huge and impressive worlds with enough time and dedication. I've currently got 22 of the 36 or so main sets on a table in my basement and they look gorgeous together!

    I think that the reason for minecraft being so popular is because it's basically virtual legos but with less limitations and more ways to play, and lego was (and is) already an insanely popular thing.

    I have been playing with Legos for about 6 years now. I've had my X-box for a little over a year, and I've been playing Minecraft for about half that. With the fact that I'm a terrible Minecraft builder and I have experience with Legos it would probably take me twice as long to do the Minecraft build. It would probably be 20L-30/40M.

  • ThaKidOnThaCorna
    ThaKidOnThaCorna 2 years ago +1

    its not that its harder to do the LEGO house, it depends on your skill at making LEGO. like he said, it depends how experienced with it, i use LEGO every day for about 2 hours, I don't play minecraft much because I play on mobile. so if for example it was me vs Grian, then there would be more of a balance in it.

    The problem is that a 2x2 lego brick is less tall. If you want it to be the same hight and width it would had to be 5 plates or a brick and 2 plates. Lego makes it whit the lego brick a brick because it is cheaper. If they would make a minecraft block 3 pieces it would cost a lot.

    Grian, I have a suggestion for something you could do for a video. You could make a modern house, however, you would build it using the steps of how real-life construction workers when they build houses. So, you would start with the foundation and then you would move onto to doing whatever is next. This may be a challenge, but I believe in you. This was just a thought, though and if it's not possible, I can take the wrath of the people in the comments yelling at me.
