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!

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!

Minecraft is a game written in Java created by Mojang AB in 2009. Minecraft has two current variants - Classic (which is free) and Beta (which you have to pay for).
In Beta, the main goal is to survive. At night, monsters spawn (but not in Peaceful mode) and attack you so you need to craft items and tools to help you survive. You also need to eat regularly.

Minecraft has gone through many development stages:

Classic - the oldest version. It is still playable and has multiplayer. In Classic, you have an infinite amount of blocks, no health, and no mobs.

Survival Test - Part of Classic, very basic compared to the Survival we play and know today.

Indev - Added a number of new features, including crafting, torches, and tools.

Infdev - Added the ability to have an infinite playing surface.

Alpha - Added biomes, nether, sneaking, and much more.

Beta - The current version of Minecraft. Added beds (which can skip the night), more mobs such as endermen and wolves (which can be tamed with bones and attack monsters), and many more.

Multiplayer is in both Classic and Beta, which allows, well, multiplayer, duhhhh

The single most addicting game in the world, side effects are anti-sociality, fear of light, explodingpenisphobia, a fear of the Creeper, occasional dreams only in blocks and thinking Minecraft is real.
