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.

The meeting place of all annoying 10-12 year olds. Nobody knows what they are talking about because they are speaking in a very broken English that scientists suspect are from the child being hit in the head so hard that his head slammed into the keyboard.

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.

An amazing sandbox indie game developed by a small Swedish company known as Mojang AB. The Current devs on minecraft are Jeb, Grumm, and Dinnerbone. The game was originally coded by Markus Persson, he goes by Notch online.

Minecraft is also popular for how easy it is to mod its code. Mojang has even come out by saying that they support the modders. Minecraft mods cannot be compared to mods for other games because of what Minecraft mods are capable of doing to ones game. Take a look at the Applied Energistics mod or Buildcraft. These mods completely reinvent the way the game is played.

Unlike most games such as CoD. Mojang doesn't have a Public Relations department. Minecraft got popular strictly by word of mouth.

Minecraft is the most played game on YouTube. A lot of famous YouTubers make Minecraft Videos (AntVenom, ChimneySwift11, and direwolf20, to name a few).

Minecraft is also in active development, and it's likely to be that way for quite some time as Minecraft is still very popular in the internet gaming community. Each update usually adds new items, blocks, biomes, mobs, and bug fixes.

Minecraft is also known for its community. Its community is full of creative people who love to show off their awesome creations. There is also the modding community where new modders can go and talk code with pro mod developers. (minecraftforge.net, minecraftforums.net)

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...)
