What is Minecraft? (Part 2 of 2)

Ok continuing from my last post explaining the specific details such as who made it, and other versions on other systems. But in this part I will be talking about what YOU do in the game. As of January 12, 2011 minecraft sold one-million copies of the game! As of November 7, 2011 the game sold 4-MILLION copies! It has a rating of 9.5/10!
OK.... so what? What's so good about this game?
When you but the game you can create a new world which is randomly generated with blocks from dirt to diamonds! There's 3 gamemodes.

  1. Survival
  2. Creative
  3. Hardcore
In the next post I will be talking about what those gamemodes are. The survival is the most popular and well known gamemode. It's most likely what you have seen on a youtube video. So the basic point is to survive, build what you want, and make your own goals.  I like this game because of it's originality, community, and amazing graphics! (Just kidding) The game has a bunch of 16 bit blocks which is why many people hate it. My favorite concept is redstone! I love it! It's like wiring but has so many amazing things you can do!

I may add a part 3 if you request it in the comments below!

What is Minecraft? (Part 1 of 2)

'Minecraft is a sandbox-building independent video game.....' It is written in java originally  by a Swedish person named Markus "Notch" Persson. Now ran by his company Mojang, who is currently working on making minecraft for iOS, and Xbox360 with kinect support! The game was released on November 7, 2011. It was inspired from games like Infiminer and Dwarf Fortress.
