Why Is Minecraft So Successful?

There shouldn’t be any gamer on Earth that has never heard of Minecraft before. The same line of thinking can be loosely applied to parents too, as it’s likely they’ll have heard of the game from their kids who will likely no doubt be asking them to buy it. The success that Minecraft has had is incredible, especially considering that the game has only been around for less than 15 years. However, once the gameplay and aim of the game are taken into account, it is clear to see why Minecraft appeals to children and adults alike.

If one were to go on YouTube and sort by the gaming category, the chances are high that a Minecraft video or two will pop up. This is because the game is one of the most popular examples right now, and has always been. One must only look at the bestselling games of all time list to see how much people enjoy it as it sits second. The demand for Minecraft content is there, and this is something that has never vanished since the game was first released to excited gamers.

Much of Minecraft’s success can be attributed to the overall growth of the gaming industry. The last decade has seen gaming reach new heights, and the same can be said for some other sectors in entertainment.

The success of Minecraft can be distilled into a single notion – its simplicity. Because the game is not particularly uninviting to new players, it is popular with new gamers and children too. In Minecraft, gamers are dropped into a world where their sole objective is to survive the first night as monsters come out to play. They can do this by building or mining a safe place to live in. This aspect of the game is relatively easy to understand, but the thing that keeps players playing the game past this point is the sheer freedom that the game affords to players.

Those who are especially creative will love Minecraft as this is a game where the only limit is a person’s imagination. They can create massive castles or build smaller-scale houses or cottages. Players can use Redstone to mimic electricity, creating contraptions such as automated farms or working railway systems.

It should now be clear why Minecraft is so successful, but there is another reason why it is still played by millions even today. The game has been continually updated since its release, and because it is an open-world sandbox, the developers are always able to add new, interesting stuff. This helps keep the game relevant and fresh, and veterans will agree that the Minecraft of today is very different from what the world saw ten years ago.

There is no doubt that Minecraft is one of the most loved games of all time. It may even objectively be one of the best games of all time if its sales records are anything to go by.
