an awesome game released in mid 2010 by european indie developer "Notch."

the main hook of the game is its presentation; imagine if the world was made up of one meter cubed blocks which represented different materials, such as wood, stone, sand or diamonds. now imagine a world like that that is eight times larger than the surface of the earth and has zombies, skeletons, tarantulas, and zombies riding skeletons that emerge at night, plus a bizarre nether world populated by zombie pig people that are docile until you attack, and giant, firespittting jelly fish. imagine all that, then add the ability to dig deep into the earth and harvest materials. then also add the ability to take these resources and build a plethora of objects, such as houses, pickaxes, and furnaces. then add multiplayer, and you have minecraft. in short, it is awesome, and you will sink hours into it, wanting to find rare blocks lik e gold, diamond, or red stone.
Mike: Hey Jim, have you ever played Minecraft?
Jim: Hell yeah, I even found a vein of red stone 12 blocks large once. I was able to create a whole rail car system that spanned my Minecraft world!
Mike: Awesome!

The single most addicting game known to mankind. Unlike World of Warcraft and other MMORPGs, you pay about $20 for it and it's yours. Those who've broken a previous addiction can stumble upon this and start a new addiction very easily. This drug usually causes anti-sociality, fear of light, explodingpenisphobia, the fear of the exploding penis enemies (creepers), and occasionally having dreams only in blocks.
Bob: Dude, I had the weirdest dream last night.
Tim: What was it?
Bob: Everything was in blocks and this giant green exploding penis came up to me and blew me up, next thing I knew I pissed my bed and I was scared out of my fucking mind.
Tim: Have you been playing Minecraft lately?
Bob: Yeah.
Tim: Well there ya go.

Minecraft is a game where when you play it once, u will never go outside or get excersize again. It is like a cheap drug in which you build and remove blocks to make awe inspiring structures.
Friend: Hey dude lets go to a party. Lots of hot chicks there.

Friend: What? Server?

You: Minecraft party's have to b on servers!

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.
