What is Minecraft?
What is Minecraft? Minecraft is a fairly popular computer game, a lot of people have heard of it, but they do not know what it is to its full extent. Minecraft is an internet game where you are put in a world of blocks. Everything is made up of blocks. These blocks resemble the real world. As in, you have grass blocks, dirt blocks, stone blocks, coal blocks, and hundreds of other blocks that you can use inside the game. When you begin, you start out with nothing. You must then go and collect resources by mining different blocks. So for example, if you mine a wood block, you will get a piece of wood. You then can craft that wood to make tools and build things. This game is about creativity, you can build and do whatever you want in this world. Earlier I have mentioned that the worlds resemble the real world we live in; but there is also a fantasy aspect to this game as well. There are mobs that you have to fight and you can also gain resources by killing them. Certain creatures drop certain things and you can use those things to your advantage. You can make this game anything you want it to. It is fun because you can play with your friends or you can play with others online, you can get together and build or you can play mini games that are available. This is an endless game, so it can occupy someone for hours. The things you can do are endless. The more creative you are, the more fun this game becomes. This game also takes some knowledge to play. To craft certain things and access certain things, you need to know the materials you need, how to obtain them, and then the pattern you need to put them in the crafting table to be able to craft this object you desire. A crafting table is something you make out of 4 pieces of wood, and when you place it down, you can basically craft anything. When you click on it, you see a bunch of little boxes that you can place stuff in. You must place the correct materials in the correct pattern to the get exact object you desire. It might take some time to learn all this at first, but once you get the hang of it, the game becomes so fun.
