Do you play Creative or Survival on Minecraft? in Video Games Posted July 24, 2018 Would love a lengthy Creative vs. Survival thread! I've never enjoyed creative mode as much as I have survival. If I'm playing Minecraft, I'll always either be on an SMP or PvP server. Never, ever play single-player, neither. I think the challenges and rewards in survival mode outdo creative on Minecraft any day! What's your preferred Minecraft game mode?
