So I’ll cut straight to the chase. I have been playing Minecraft for a very long time. I mean like a really long time almost Seven years now in fact I started playing Minecraft when I was 15 which makes me feel Really very old and when I first started playing I went up to my mates and I’d try my best to explain to them what this awesome game that I’d just discovered was I said that it was a game made up of randomly generated worlds made up of blocks, and you could you could break those blocks, and you could place those blocks and you could you do other fun stuff build things and everything like that and Although it probably wasn’t my most eloquent description. I wasn’t really expecting the responses that I got which was that looks absolutely terrible the graphics look awful. I don’t really understand what the point is. Now I know that Visually Minecraft isn’t exactly a market leader, it doesn’t have the best graphics of any game it’s not exactly visually stunning is it? but I hoped that they would see past that and They would play it with me. Still I didn’t really care I kept playing I was doing my redstone bits and pieces and I was just in the process of kind of working out if I wanted to start up my YouTube channel. But then while that was happening something very very strange happened probably around about six months later Minecraft begun getting popular like seriously popular! Suddenly everyone of my school was talking about this brand new game where you could have randomly generated worlds of blocks And you could break them you can place them, you could build things. Do fun stuff I kept quiet about it because I didn’t want to be that guy who goes ohh I was playing that before it was cool. Even if even if I totally was playing it before it was cool There is something very satisfying about being in total control of how you play If you want to build a castle then you can, if you want to adventure And carry all of your items and resources on your back without any home or base to go back to than of course you can if you want to horde as many resources as possible by building gigantic industrial farms, then of course you can and if Like most teenage boys have already discovered you want to build a giant megastructures of Male genitalia Then there’s nothing stopping you from doing that either Minecraft is real creativity in its simplest form it’s not complex like cad software It doesn’t cost money like building and designing things in real life It doesn’t need trained professionals advisors or a strong understanding of engineering, maths, and physics to do cool things, the scope of your project Depends on how much time you’re willing to put into it and of course yes, it does take some skill and practice, But what doesn’t? So the reason that I still play Minecraft is that it’s a constantly evolving outlet for me to be creative So I come up with ideas and then I have to put those ideas into practice using skills that I’ve learned over many years of playing the game. And Now the best part for me is is that I didn’t have the absolute pleasure of sharing these things with you These ideas that I’ve come up with and constructed and spent many many hours on, with the Incredible community That exists around this game. And you guys give me feedback instantly some of it is good Some of it is not so good, but that’s just all part of it now before I go, I just want to ask you guys a little bit of a question, and that is why do you still play Minecraft? I mean I’m sure everyone has different reasons for it one set of people will have one specific reason Another set will have another specific reason I would just love to hear all of your thoughts And I would love to see all of that happening down in the comment section. We’re gonna have a proper discussion going on right here. Now I do understand that this video has been a little bit different to my normal style of things and I can promise you it will return back to that on the next redstone video, but I just thought this is something that I wanted to throw out there as Something to think about. But anyway if you did enjoy, please be sure to hit that like button if you really loved it, then make sure to subscribe But thanks for watching guys. This has been Mumbo, and I’m out, I’ll see you later.
