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...)

Minecraft is a game originally created in 2009 (but it's "full version" was released in 2011).

It is a game about building, destroying, mining, cold blooded murder and even more building!

You only need to play once to become addicted....and once you are....you'll never see the daylight again.... It's sort of like a legal alternative to crack.
EXAMPLE 1: Asking your pal to go to the bar with you (featuring JackSepticEye)

Jack: Top 'o' the mornin' to ya laddies my name is JackSepticEye and welcome back to Minecraft!

Jeff: Hey Jack, wanna go to the pub and get drunk?


EXAMPLE 2: Horribly Failed Science Experiment (Featuring Dan and Trayaurus from the Diamond Minecart)

Dan: What have you done here Trayaurus?!

Dr Trayaurus: Hmm.

Dan: You've possibly broken the entirety of minecra- Oh my goodness. ALL OF THE BLOCKS ARE GONE!

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)

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
