    Even then, I would have thought that the number would be even higher than that give the type of reach the game has for effectively any age group.

    I've been really hooked on this game again lately. Not only have I been using it to keep my streak going, but I've also been enjoying actually playing it and have a kickass legitimate survival world going. I've spent the last week or so building an underwater / underground railroad that spans about 1,000 blocks to take me from my house to a village that has a ton of raiders nearby. It's always fun to head over there and help defend against the waves of raids.

    Fun game. People like to hate or judge it because of how it looks, but it is hours of fun if you can get lost in it.

    Hands down one of the most brilliant games ever created. It’s not surprising that it’s the most sold game of all time and anyone and everyone can get enjoyment from this game.

    That's good for Microsoft, since they paid something like $2.5 billion to acquire Minecraft smile
