Minecraft has taken the world by storm and is one of the most popular games of recent years. If you haven’t tried it then you should and here are five reasons you may love it.
5. You Have Once Liked Legos
Made by Mojang, Minecraft excels at bringing the enthusiasm and simplicity that many would associate with owning a Lego set as a kid. Many children I know had owned at least one set, and swiftly abandoned it as they entered their troublesome years of pre-adolescence. Minecraft, however, might be your ticket back into that juvenile happy place you’d visit whenever you would touch your treasured lego set. If you are among the particular group of individuals this last paragraph refers to, have no fear – even though Minecraft may have somewhat of a learning curve (particularly if you refuse to play the tutorial), it’s very easy to play once you’ve got the hang of it, and the title gives you amazing, fun tools to breathe life into your ideas that concern cliff-face mansions, castles and much more.
4. You Have Ever Considered Being An Architect
The tools players utilize in Minecraft are the closest I’ll be to the toolset that landscaping firms and talented architects utilize to do their work. Indeed, I feel awesome knowing I’ve just spend a whole hour of my life working at defacing a mountain and preparing myself to further mutilate it until it can’t be recognized anymore – all that whist having the great addition of being able to live and breath in a world with close friends of mine makes the title even more interesting. While it probably wouldn’t mean much if you said ‘Minecraft Extraordinaire’ on your resume, you’ll be able to refer to yourself as a very accomplished ‘Achievement Getter’ that the world has seen. Why not try Minecraft for free.
3. If You Have Once Questioned Your Creative Abilities
Minecraft deliberates even the hardened rule-stickler or a hardened literary buff – offering an opportunity to test their stiff mind. This is an important test – one which has been resonating in your mind since you said no to a lego set as you were younger. It becomes very apparent to those who play the game that it features a very large environment in which you can have full-reign over the world’s ins-and-outs – giving a great opportunity for anyone’s creative potential to shine.
2. If You’ve Been Outside The Gaming Loop For A While Now
Of course, it may be a bit hard to set up a server in the beginning, for instance, but if you’ve been outside the loop of gamers for a while now, the game should take you with wide open arms. Pleasantly rewarding both the hardcore and the casual player alike, the game won’t require you to open a FAQ once you learn how to do things for the first time – it all becomes very clear and intuitive after you’ve done it at least once. The best advice I could give to you as a new player is to take it slow and enjoy the learning experience – perhaps play it with someone who already knows how things work, since it’ll save you plenty of time and grief, and allow you to have more fun.
1. If You Have Friends Who Play Minecraft
They have probably been pestering you for a while now, saying you should play – and they are right. Really, there is nothing to lose, so go and give it a try. It is a very enjoyable gameplay, in a fun open world. If you decide to join it once, you’ll likely enjoy it and find yourself questioning your integrity as you play it for hours and hours on when you should be doing homework or meeting deadlines – the truth is, Minecraft features something developers strive for, players pursue, and publishers try to evoke – simple, pure fun.
