The game Minecraft never requires an introduction, as almost everyone is aware of what it is, on some level. The game has seen a rise and fall in popularity through the times, and right now it’s back on the rise again. This article is going to talk about why everyone seems to be playing Minecraft once again, and why it’s regaining popularity.
Here Are 5 Reasons Why Minecraft Is Really Popular Right Now:
1- It Suits All Ages
You’ve probably heard both kids and adults talk about playing the same game, and that’s because Minecraft is a very child-friendly game that doesn’t have anything that needs to be censored for kids, while still providing a fun experience for both children and adults. The game itself is entertaining and there’s nothing that stops either age group from enjoying it.
2- It’s Trending
Right now, the biggest YouTube channel has taken a turn into putting out Minecraft content. With the channel having over 100 million subscribers, the influence it has on the game is vast, and it brings forth a tsunami of people also looking to enjoy the game. With media outlets covering the latest events at all times, it provides a lot of publicity to the game constantly.
3- It’s Easily Adaptable On All Platforms
The reason why Minecraft has become so popular is that it’s available on all platforms. Minecraft is available on many different platforms, including iOS, Android and Windows. You can even play Minecraft on Linux while enjoying cross-platform gaming to join the immersive world with your friends, no matter what device they’re using.
4- It Has Both Single & Multiplayer
When you start playing Minecraft, your personal preference is always respected for what you want to be doing. Much like real life, if you don’t feel like interacting with anyone and you just want to spend your time exploring alone, you’re free to do so. The same goes for when you want to interact and go on an adventure with your friends or just random strangers online. You’re free to decide if you’re feeling more introverted or extroverted, even inside the game.
5- The Open World, Is Appealing
On the topic of freedom from the last point, Minecraft doesn’t only offer freedom when it comes to device usage and/or single/multiplayer options, it also offers freedom in gameplay. You can pursue anything you want while playing Minecraft due to the sheer vastness of the game. As an open-world game, you’re free to do whatever you want, create whatever you want, go wherever you want at any time you want. That’s what makes the game so appealing, the freedom in creating whatever you want just depends on your creativity.
Minecraft has a lot of similarities to real life, as you still have to feed both your character avatar and any other pets that you may have. You can have farms, barns, towers, apartment buildings or whatever you decide to create. With an all-inclusive feeling to the game where anyone can play it with no restrictions, its popularity isn’t so unexpected.
