Minecraft is known by many as an addictive sandbox game with simple pixel graphics and possibly the most relaxing music in any video game. Created by ‘Notch’ and published by Mojang on just about every platform imaginable, Minecraft is one of the most popular and impactful games of all time, and it’s easy to see why.
Its most addicting elements are probably its innate creative freedom that it allows, and its mining/building mechanics. It also helps that you don’t just have to build things aimlessly. In Survival mode, you have to do just that – survive. Craft weapons to fight zombies, spiders and skeletons; mine for gold, coal and those super rare diamonds. You can discover villages, secrets, and – if you’re brave enough – the Nether. Unless you’re prepared to play for hours on end, you won’t achieve all of this in one sitting. So sit back and let that addiction build as you dig, craft and explore an infinite world full of mystery and creativity.
