Since its release in 2011, Minecraft has had more than 112 million players worldwide. It may look simple enough – mine materials and build stuff – but maybe this is the perfect formula for the game’s success. And it’s not just the young who enjoy this game. There are also old folks who love it. In fact, the average age for Minecraft players is 24. But what makes this game so enduring?
Apart from its simplicity, which is reminiscent of LEGO blocks, there are also different elements in the game that make it exciting. For one, you can explore the infinite world your character is in. At first it’s just plain green fields. But once you get your imagination going, you can basically construct anything and explore what’s on the surface (if you’re not mining).
Second, in a multiplayer setting, you can discover other worlds and see what other players have been up to. In single player, you can rest easy and choose to keep building by your lonesome. Watch out for survival mode! That’s when monsters come out and attack you.
Truly, Minecraft has earned its place in gaming culture. It’s no wonder it’s still one of the most played games today. Whether or not you’re still a player, here are some of the best Minecraft memes to make your day.
