It's not that Minecraft doesn't have any merit but I think a lot of its success is built upon it being an alternative style, where it deliberately shuns graphics. I mean, look at shit like this - it looks like ass... for a game released ten years ago!

Some of it's success could be attributed to it's art style. Some. A lot? Not really. Hell, I'm almost embarrassed to be seen playing it, but the creative (versus destructive) sandbox style gameplay redeems itself. I think you're mistakingly construing Minecraft's appeal as some hipster fad like this. That is so not the case. People like the game primarily for the creative, lego-esque facet of the game where you create your own world. (To clarify, the standard game is Survival mode where you start with nothing and try to survive, level up, craft items, and eventually go through the Nether, "Hell world", and finally kill the dragon in The End; creative mode is purely constructive with no set end game goals) Personally, I enjoy creative mode and see it as a nice creative outlet, and based on exploring a few servers, I'm not alone!

If the gameplay redeemed it that would be one thing but it doesn't, at least for me. That's what I mean when I say I don't understand why people like it.

This is your opinion that your entitled to, but I hope I cleared up why people like it above.
