Minecraft is a sandbox game created by Markus Persson, a.k.a "Notch". It is inspired by many games, especially Infiniminer. It has over 400,000 registered players.

There are 6 modes:
Creative: makes you build anything you want, single-player and multiplayer
Survival: a very basic version of Indev, where you have to defend yourself from monsters
Indev: a version which added a number of new features, including crafting and more monsters
Infdev: same thing as Indev except this version added an infinite playing surface

Multiplayer is a part of Creative mode, which allows you to build with other players in servers.
Unfortunately, there are "griefers" that destroy creations including yours.
A survival multiplayer was created in August 2010, which allows players to play Indev with other players.
A typical Minecraft conversation when a griefer comes to a server:

coolguy10: supergriefer54674 is greifed my house!!!!1111
supergriefer54674: lololololololhahahah
supergriefer54674 is banned!
Builder8: Pwned.

A very fun game, most would say, and some people say it's another "drug", because it's so addicting. Minecraft uses Blocks/cubes, and they are pixelated. Why? Because every block uses some java, and the higher the texture, like realism HD, would make a shit ton of lag.

Anyway, minecraft is very fun because you can build any building, or pixel art, you want. There is no planned mission you have to do, like in Halo or C.O.D... You don't always have to build some huge kick-ass thing. There is also survival mode, with peaceful, easy, normal, and hard difficulties. There is also other game modes. Creative, and adventure.

Minecraft was made by "Notch" but is now being coded by "jeb_". C418 made the music and soundtracks, and Dinnerbone is another coder.

Person 2: "Can't, I'm fighting the Enderdragon..."

Person 1: "Minecraft is gay."
Person 2: "You just don't have a creative mind."

Person 1: "WTF is the point of play minecraft?"
Person 2: "It's fun, dumb-ass."

Person 1: "Why the fuck is everything a block, and pixelated??"
Person 2: "Cause if it wasn't, it would have a shit ton of lag, and the computer would overheat."

A game where you pop up in a big square world, punch some trees, jump into caves, and make a big wooden house. This game is known to defy the laws of physics (dirt in a square block, etc...)

A code word for the illegal but hopefully soon to be decriminalized drug marijuana. Minecraft which is a video game, relates to weed in a earthy way.

The best game in the world. Screw WoW, Minecraft is just freaking awesome. It's blocky.

There are four main modes:
Survival, where you gather resources and build a house, go down and mine for stuff, go to the nether, but you have to fight mobs along the way. The unofficial goal is to get to the End and defeat the Ender Dragon.
Hardcore, which is survival except it is set to the hardest difficulty. You cannot change the difficulty, and if you die once the save is deleted.
Creative, where you have unlimited resources and can build whatever you want. You cannot die unless you fall into the void. Mobs will only attack if provoked. You can break any block with one hit, unlike in Survival or Hardcore, in which you have to hold down the mouse button on the block until it breaks.
Adventure, where you cannot break blocks or build. This gamemode is rarely done without a pre-made map, and you have to use cheats to get into the mode. You cannot start out with adventure mode on a singleplayer world.

You can also go on servers made by other Minecrafters, so you don't always have to be alone! On the servers you can play with other players. (duhh) They are normally developed in a private server and then the server IP is publicly released. However, sometimes the server cannot be accessed because of either your or the server's connection.

I'm such a nerd XD

A over-rated sandbox game made by Notch that only got its fame from the talentless Yogscast. Minecraft is mainly only played so people can make their own unoriginal piece of shit Minecraft based YouTube channel. It is given much more credit than it deserves, and has to put unfunny references everywhere. Its fanbase consists of 8-12 year old kids, and wannabe YouTubers.

An over-rated indie game that is made for kids/casual gamers.
Real Gamer: I'm going to play some Dark Souls.

Every single kid in the world: OMG U STPD FAGUT, WHY U NO PLAY MINECRAFT. LOL LE FUNNY OVERUSED MEME, U JST JELLY OF NOTCH SKILL AND SWAG #YOLO.

A really cool sandbox game. In it, you can build anything using blocks. You can play in survival or creative. The ONLY REALLY BIG PROBLEM is that it has been taken over by 8 to 12 year olds. All they want to talk about is minecraft. It gets really annoying. The majority of minecraft Youtuber's subscribers are all squealing fanboys whose life revolves around the YouTuber even though they are actually funny or good at making videos. So. A good game just overrun by little kids. I enjoy minecraft but when most people hear the word they think of squirts whose life revolves around it.
(1)
Overly obsessed fanboy: OMG! did you see SkyDoesMinecraft's new video on YouTube today??!!!!
Normal minecrafter: Yeah but you don't need to go on and on about the game
(2)

Minecrafter 1: Here, come take a look, I built a massive castle that took two months to make.
Minecrafter 2: That is really cool.
