Welcome to the world of minecraft where anything is virtually possible!
I bet you want to know what minecraft is all about?
Minecraft is a sandbox indie game that was originally created by Swedish programmer Markus "Notch" Perrson, and later developed and published by Mojang. It was released to the public for PC on May 17, 2009, as a development "alpha" version, and after gradual updates, was published as a full release version on November 18, 2011. On May 9, 2012, Minecraft was released for the Xbox 360 as an Xbox Live Arcade game, which was co-developed by 4J Studios. All versions of Minecraft receive periodic updates to fix bugs in the game and sometimes adding new items, or features.
The creative and building aspects of Minecraft allow players to build almost anything out of texture cubes in a 3D procedurally generated world. Other activities in the game include exploration, crafting, and combat. Gameplay in its commercial release includes 2 principal modes: one of which being survival mode, which requires a player to gather resources, and maintain their health and hunger bars; and second, creative mode, where players have an unlimited supply of resources, the ability to fly be hitting the space bar quickly twice, and no health or hunger. A third gameplay mode named hardcore is the same as survival other than the aspect of a different difficulty setting, which is set to the hardest difficulty and respawning is disabled, forcing the player to delete the world upon death.
Want to know how long I've been playing Minecraft?
I have been playing minecraft for... I want to say, maybe, one and a half years. I have played on many, and when I say many I mean MANY as in at least 50 different servers. I really enjoy the aspects of being able to play with other people, that the creativity never ends, and the endlessly generated world. My most favorite server(also the one I play on the most) would be The Mirage I've recently been very dilligently building my base after we reset just last year due to the 1.7 update, which I think is honestly one of the coolest, that is next to the release of 1.6. I also play on servers that i'm currently staff on, these are AtlasSMP(which I put the website together for) and most recently ElliGaming(My cousin's friend's server, which I am currently helping to build from the ground up.) Another aspect that I love is the fact that you can add mods like shaders which makes the game look very realistic, or a simple minimap that allows you to set waypoints to keep you from getting lost. Now we get into modpacks which adds a whole new view onto the regular "Vanilla" minecraft adding new commands, blocks, mobs, etc. which really makes the game very enjoyable. My favorite would definitely be Hexxit for how complex and difficult it actually is. But, overall, I would reccomend this game to anyone with a good enough PC to run it, because, it definitely does bring out the creative side in virtually anyone.
