Most games: pay €65, get a few patches, pay €20 for DLC features. Pay €65 again the next year, sometimes for as little as a roster update (I'm looking at you, EA). Minecraft: pay €25 once, play forever, with free feature updates alongside bug fixes.
If Mojang/4J never ever updated again I would still spend hours in it and even recommend it as a new purchase (but please don't, Mojang/4J). You're getting so much value for your money already, don't be greedy.
There are free games that rely on optional micro transaction systems that update their games A LOT more than minecraft. It's not greed that fuels this is BOREDOM, greed is Mojang/4J and Microsoft. We just want new biomes and blocks. One main update per year, is not good enough in today's world.
If fallout4 gets here before a new update, minecraft is gone for me
