Minecraft is great. The one thing that's prevented me from playing for a while is that it's a little too punishing to explore. Sometimes I'll want to just pick a direction and run for 30 minutes to see what crazy stuff is out there, or explore some massive cave system. But if you take enough high-quality supplies to make the trip reasonable, you risk losing all those great items from dying. (They all fall on the ground, but chances that you can find your way back in time to collect them is slim).
However, I am just now realizing how easy it is to use a console command or a mod to keep items on death. Time to fire it up again.
