If any gamer knows about any game, there is probably a high chance of that gamer instantly recognizing the well known and populous game known as Minecraft. With over 15,000,000 users who have bought the game, it’s undeniable that Minecraft must hold some form of essence that attracts old and new gamers alike.
So here ye, here ye! I present to you, the three reasons why I enjoy playing Minecraft.
1) The Opportunity to Expel & Explore Our Lusciously, Creative Minds!
Minecraft is what people call a sandbox game. A sandbox game is where the environment of a game allows the player to roam freely and freely choose how to respond to the surrounding environment. This way, every player’s reaction to the environment and vice-versa is unique. Don’t worry. If you didn’t understand that, just know that in Minecraft, you’re free to cut down trees and build a house out of it without anyone telling you what to do.
By default Minecraft offers two game modes, “survival” and “creative”. Survival is where you need to survive. In the day, you go can go hunting, fishing, building, or mining. But once the sun has set and it’s nighttime, these creatures known as “creepers” will come out to hunt you and kill you. So that is where the name“survival” comes in for this gamemode.
Where creative mode is the entire opposite. In creative, you don’t need to survive. You’re free to explore, fly and create the most wondrous of creations that lie deep in the depths of your mind without any “creepers” bothering you.
So due to all this freedom, you can play the game however you want. If you’re in creative mode, you can build a house with a top of the line security system. But if you’re in survival mode, you can go on adventures into the sand dunes of the desert and encounter the most luscious greens of the forests.
Basically, where ever you set your eyes of imagination to be, you can do so in Minecraft.
2) The Diverse Amount of Games & Activities
Another great benefit to the wondrous freedom that Minecraft offers is diversity. What I mean by this is that since you can create whatever however you want to in Minecraft, this allows to create custom adventure maps and games for you and your friends to play.
So it can be a Capture the Flag map, a battlefield, or even an arena.
But if you’re too lazy to build and create (Like me sometimes! ) and you just want to play, there are several servers out there that allow you to do so much more. Trust me, if you’re a newb (or new) to Minecraft, you’ll be amazed by all the different kinds of servers out there. Some offer PVP games such as the hunger games or factions. While others give you the opportunity to build with your friends. Here are some websites that’ll list most available Minecraft servers:
As well as some of my personal favorites:
MC.Uberminecraft.com – This server offers a great variety of games. Including hunger games, skyblock, and many others.
hub.worldofkeralis.com –If you’re looking for some inspiration in order to achieve the creation or build of your dreams, this server offers a great deal of wondrous and jaw-dropping creations. From modern mountain house to some nice cottages.
us.mineplex.com – This server offers unique games. Such as my personal favorite, ‘Super Paintball.’
Regardless, not only can you create in Minecraft. But you can bend that creation into the art and shape of whatever your will maybe.
3) Redstone Engineering
For some, this reason may not seam reasonable. But for me, I absolutely love it. If you love to engineer, program, or think in ways of logic, Minecraft offers that. You know those strands of wires and circuits that exist in our real world? Well Minecraft offers an alternative. It’s called redstone.
Redstone is basically the Minecraft alternative to an electrical wire. With the redstone wires, repeaters or comparators, you can engineer such greats feats of engineering. Basically, you can engineer your own form of technology in Minecraft.
There is also this special block in Minecraft called a Command Block. Basically, a command Block allows you to type in a command in the console (Kind of like code). Then, you can use that block and engineer it with your Redstone contraption. Basically, the command Block offers you the opportunity to add that nice little of code for you programmers.
So yes, those are my three reasons of why I enjoy playing Minecraft. I have the opportunity to freely explore and adventure my environment. As well as the opportunities to create and engineer some great feats of personal achievement.
So what about you? Do you play Minecraft? What do you enjoy about Minecraft? And even if you don’t play, does Minecraft seem to pull your attention? Why or why not?
