Minecraft - The Greatest Video Game of All Times

What do you call a classic that is still very much in vogue? Well, we don’t know if Oxford or Merriam-Webster have a name for it, but Minecraft qualifies the criteria.

For those who live under the rock, Minecraft is a sandbox video game that has sold over 200 million copies. And it is rightly crowned the Greatest Video Game of All Times.

Minecraft is a wilderness survival game where players survive and then thrive in a 3D world. Players start with a premade village that has village dwellers and mineshafts that are full of monsters. And after they are done surviving, they can unleash their creativity to create a world of their own.

And what started as a bare-bones sandbox game has now grown and evolved into a full-fledged franchise. With spin-off games, officially-licensed novels, and a documentary to its credit.

Minecraft is a game that grabs player attention and inspires creativity like no other. But its impact and applications have been widely discussed outside the gaming spectrum too. Especially in CAD (computer-aided design) and the education sector.

And that’s not all. Several games, with striking similarities to Minecraft, called clones, have been launched. A LEGO set is based on Minecraft, and the merch is available at Jinx, an online game merch store.

Plus, Egmont Group, a children’s book publisher, has signed a deal with Mojang (the Swedish company that owned Minecraft) to publish Minecraft handbooks, magazines, annuals, and poster books.
