Over in YouTube land, YouTuber N11ck (and I'm assuming a bunch of his friends) have taken on the Herculean task of recreating all of Los Santos in Minecraft. Honestly, I admire and envy the determination of N11ck and his friends. I have no idea how they have the patience to do something like this. Actually, I mean I don't know how they have the skill to do something like this.
Only because I don't really have any skills. I don't know what it's like to be talented and recreate a video game in a totally different video game. I'm pretty okay at playing video games but making a video game in another video game?? No way dude.
Check out the video above. Look at that detail. Look at how pixel-y and beautiful Los Santos looks in Minecraft. I've played a lot of GTA V back when it first came out, so it felt weird recognizing places in the game while I watched this video. And then it made me realize something about N11ck and his building buddies.
Los Santos is based on real-life city Los Angeles and some parts of Los Santos look like actual Los Angeles. So by extension, N11ck and friends are MAKING LOS ANGELES IN MINECRAFT.
And this made me ask myself, "why can't you be good at anything, Paul? Why is it that you give up on everything you start? Why couldn't you just stick it out with Jamie after she went back to DC? Why are you so afraid of commitment? And not just in the relationship-sense, either. You haven't committed to anything fully in your whole life. The only thing you have dedicated your life to is self-destruction. Don't you think you should make a change? Quit complaining and grow? Don't you think it's time you grow up?"
