released on Nov 18, 2011

Minecraft focuses on allowing the player to explore, interact with, and modify a dynamically-generated map made of one-cubic-meter-sized blocks. In addition to blocks, the environment features plants, mobs, and items. Some activities in the game include mining for ore, fighting hostile mobs, and crafting new blocks and tools by gathering various resources found in the game. The game's open-ended model allows players to create structures, creations, and artwork on various multiplayer servers or their single-player maps. Other features include redstone circuits for logic computations and remote actions, minecarts and tracks, and a mysterious underworld called the Nether. A designated but completely optional goal of the game is to travel to a dimension called the End, and defeat the ender dragon.

Whether you like it or not, Minecraft is a global phenomenon and is here to stay for the foreseeable future. It's a simple, effective concept that keeps people coming back for its highly customizable worlds and gameplay.

Even with almost no nostalgia of playing this game when I was younger, it’s still one of the best gaming experiences I’ve had. It’s just so aghhhhhh. Thank you C418 and Hatsune Miku

Very fun with friends but not excellent otherwise.

Good in too many ways, which is also a negative, because there is so much stuff to do that it turns grindy and makes you waste too much time out of your life.
