A game where everything is made of 1 meter cubed blocks.
There are 4 modes:

Survival: Gather resources, build a house, fight health and hunger, kill the Ender Dragon.
Adventure: Same as Survival but you can't destroy blocks.
Hardcore: Survival with no respawning
Creative: Build anything with unlimited resources, free flying, and no health or hunger.
Minecraft is awesome
Current version: 1.3.2
The new 1.4 update in Minecraft will have leather armor and wolf collars that can be dyed, cobblestone walls, item frames, new potions, carrots and golden carrots along with potatoes and baked potatoes, beacons, zombie villagers, bats, witches and more!!

The BEst Game you wil ever play. It is a game where you can fly around and build HUGE awesome things. You can also slay monsters with a sword. If you don't like it you suck.

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 1: "Hey...Dude, u wanna smoke some weed?.."
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."

' Minecraft Is What Minecraft is, so DONT FUCKING FORGET '

Minecraft is a sandbox'ish' indie game created by mojang, who was originally lead by Marcus persson or 'notch'.
The game had no real objective but to survive and have fun doing an almost infinite possibilities untill update 1.1 ( non-beta ) with the realease of the ENDER DRAGON, a mob named after an earlier mob, endermen.
In its alpha release in 2009, it gained some attention as a game with exponential promise as a game. In 2010 it became beta and well-known, and in its final beta stages in 2011 is was a world-famous game. It left beta in early 2012,
leaving the beta tag and going to ' 1.0 '.

in early 2012, notch left the minecraft crew to do another game, which i wont say. He left ' Jebb ' his roommate, to own the game. Most people say Jebb ruined minecraft, but ill let you decide 'yes' or 'no'
Minecraft is an ' indie ' game though some strongly disagree

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
