I've always had a strange relationship with Minecraft, a 3D sandbox game from Mojang, that sells a deceptively simple premise buried under layers of complexity birthed by the creativity of its players. Over the years, I've come to appreciate the game as a therapeutic, relaxing experience; something that I could put on to unwind, and just unleash my inner architect. In the beginning, though, things were much different. Minecraft exploded onto the scene, and I was perplexed at its sudden popularity surge. In an age of video games pushing state of the art graphics, groundbreaking gameplay, and looking to the future, how could Minecraft - a complete opposite of these achievements - leave a deeper impact than any other? Let's explore why Minecraft might be the most influential video game of this decade, and the impact it continues to leave on the gaming world.
