      I've actually played minecraft for a long time, I don't really play anymore, but I enjoyed it, and now I switched on garry's mod, because those games were very similar, and I did not enjoyed minecraft that much anymore, garry's mod was a great alternative for me, so YES, IT IS A GOOD ALTERNATIVE
