The game's popularity cannot be overstated. With over 10 billion copies sold, it is the number ten best-selling game on PC and the number seventeen best-selling game of all time. The game's popularity and fanbase is so large that Microsoft bought ''Minecraft'' for over four billion dollars in 2014. Part of the game's success can be credited to its deep and open-ended gameplay that encourages creativity and exploration: there's no set "story" or narrative, and players are given utter freedom to decide how they want to interact with the world.

The game's popularity cannot be overstated. With over 100 million copies sold, it is the number one best-selling game on PC and the number two best-selling game of all time (behind only Tetris). The game's popularity and fanbase is so large that Microsoft bought ''Minecraft'' for over two billion dollars in 2014. Part of the game's success can be credited to its deep and open-ended gameplay that encourages creativity and exploration: there's no set "story" or narrative, and players are given utter freedom to decide how they want to interact with the world.

In ''Minecraft'', nearly everything in the game is made up of similarly-sized cubes. From dirt, to rock, to tree trunks. The "world" of ''Minecraft'' is nigh-infinite and constantly generates new and unique landscapes as the player explores. Players can scale blocky mountains, swim across bodies of water, or explore any one of the many caves winding through the ground underneath them. The world is bound by unbreakable "bedrock" at the bottom and a height limit at the top where players can no longer place blocks. There are also two alternate realms players can travel to: the "Nether", a hell-like dimension, and "The End", a barren land where a terrible dragon awaits.

The three main modes in ''Minecraft'' are '''Creative''', '''Survival''' and '''Hardcore'''. In Creative the players can destroy and place blocks with a single click. They can use any block in the game, cannot die, and are able to fly. For the most part, it's focused solely on building, and can be used to easily make very large structures or pixel art. Survival, on the other hand, forces the players to manually collect the blocks they want to use, as well as giving them a health bar and the possibility of death. It also introduces a crafting system, [[WizardNeedsFoodBadly hunger system]], day/night cycle, and hostile monsters. The players are forced to scrounge for supplies, building up a base to protect themselves from monsters while also mining deep underground for valuable materials. Players must craft various equipment to help them survive, such as pickaxes to make mining blocks quicker, or swords and armor to help fend off the monsters that come each night. Hardcore mode is almost identical to Survival. Except for the fact that [[HarderThanHard the difficulty is locked on hard]] and if you die, [[FinalDeathMode your world gets deleted]].

The game is notable for its frequent updates. The game was originally created by Swedish programmer Markus "Notch" Persson as a SpiritualLicensee to a [[FreewareGames freeware]] game from ZachtronicsIndustries called ''Infiniminer''. First released in 2009, ''Minecraft'' started out very basic and only had the equivalent of Creative mode. Various other modes, such as Survival Test, Indev and Infdev were slowly added in and refined/renamed, as well as many of the now-standard features (like the day/night cycle). In the summer of 2010 it was updated to [[UsefulNotes/BetaTest Alpha]] status and moved to Beta status later that year. Despite the game being "officially" released in 2011, many new features have continued to be added. In 2014, Microsoft bought Mojang (and thus ''Minecraft'') but assured fans they planned to continue the game's ongoing development.
