Happy Sunday everyone! As you may know, I love video games. One of my favorite games is none other than Minecraft! It’s almost like a virtual version of legos, but there is so much more to it. Minecraft is a great game where you can create, build, explore, survive, battle, relax, and have fun! There’s so many possibilities in this game and I wanted to tell you why it could be worth your time to check out and play yourself.
In a nutshell, I love playing Minecraft because it’s fun to be creative and build your own village, explore the many biomes & caves, and be immeresed in your own world. I’ve played Minecraft for 2 years now. I’m still ‘new’ to the game despite it being out for so long, but I’ve learned enough to enjoy it for what it has to offer. Minecraft is available on the PC, Mac, PS4, XBOX, and many other consoles. On the PC there’s single player, multiplayer, and realms. Realms are sort of like a private world that you can buy and use with your friends. Single/Multiplayer lets you interact with other users online and see what they’ve created or trade resources.
There are two main modes of this game, creative or survival (there’s also peaceful if you like the idea of survival with no monsters, for chickens like me haha). In survival you must make tools, collect resources such as food and wood, and try to survive the night by either sleeping (creating a bed) or fighting off monsters (i.e. zombies, witches, spiders, skeletons, endermen, creepers, silverfish, etc).
In creative you have unlimited resources at your fingertips and can make anything your heart desires, which is fun if you’re more interested in the artistic side of it. For me, creative can sometimes get boring which is why I like the element of survival. You can build a furnace and cook stuff, build a hoe and farm crops, or even raise your own animal farm. There’s cows, chickens, pigs, llamas, squid, etc. You can kill them for food or raise them for other necessities.
Another great thing about this game is that on consoles you can buy texture packs or on the pc you can get them for free! It can modify your world to look just the way you like it: realistic, modern, medieval, kawaii, you name it! There’s a texture pack for everyone! You can even customize the way your character looks.
For those wondering, I’m using a texture pack called Cute Craft – so far it’s my favorite.
In the beginning the game may seem difficult to get used to, but in time you’ll soon realize the magic of the game. This game transports me to my own world and lets me create and explore like none other. Maybe you won’t like it, but just maybe, you’ll love it. Hope you all have a happy rest of your weekend, maybe now you have something new to try in your downtime. 🙂
