10 Lies That Stopped You Playing Awesome Video Games
We’ll start off with what is likely the biggest misconception in video games: that Minecraft is for kids. Though, these days that title is up for competition with the likes of Fortnite as the new hip thing. Minecraft released to the public around 2009 and became huge as it made its way into the next decade, hitting consoles and later being sold to Microsoft. When looking at Minecraft's lifespan in length, though, it’s actually quite difficult to pinpoint how and why exactly Minecraft was seen as for kids.
Perhaps it was the thousands of YouTubers pandering to a younger audience with Let’s Play Minecraft, Part 472. It may also have been the fact the game was marketed as being limited by only your own imagination and of course, your journey to adulthood is only complete when you're devoid of all imagination.
The game is colourful, creative, a true sandbox in every sense of the word and weirdly enough, hasn’t slowed down since release. Now being produced by Microsoft, Minecraft’s popularity and content doesn’t show any signs of stopping. In fact, it’s hard to find someone who hasn’t played the game in the last decade and I feel that more than debunks the assumption that Minecraft is only for children.
