It's official. There is no stopping Minecraft. Some time overnight, the indie gaming phenomenon passed 10 million downloads. That figure doesn't include the units bought and played on Xbox 360.

Minecraft has only been available as a full-version download since November 2011. Since then, the brainchild of Swedish programmer Marcus "Notch" Persson has becoming one of gaming's most remarkable stories. At $26.95 a copy, and given that Persson largely bootstrapped the development, the success has no doubt made him a remarkably wealthy person.

    Yes been playing it since it came out, and bought when it was only 15$. The graphics are 8 bit styled because it was made by a single person originally , and there are a lot of detail into the game itself, if you want nice graphics download a mod, the game is open source and mods are supported as that's how it get better. There are texture packs, game mods, sound mods and make your own character skins ( I used to have pedobear). Easily one of the most customizable games out there, not to mean the amount of languages its in

    Best video game ever, and addicting beyond belief. As a matter of fact, I even got a shoutout from ChimneySwift11 in one of his videos while on Minecraft.

    If you do then dont compain about the graphics because at first there was only one person to make minecraft and it is 8-bit to make it looks like a new world from our world. Sure it may be not free but you can try demos or play on the website of the old verison, that is what i use to do. And also there are mods which expand ur world and make it more, well like the mod's title is. I personally like the Mo Creatures and other life like mods to give it more of a real life demonstration. Also it updates with new items with the 1.6 update on may 3. U can earn and sell to villagers in the game for items and in multiplayer they have shops and chest markets.

    I play Minecraft a lot. I enjoy it, and I'm glad to see it has become so popular, rather than some shooting game.

    However, I still very much ejoy The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

    It's not a game, it's a level editor/chat room, without a good way to save the levels, and complete lack of game play once they are created.

    I play it pretty much to the exclusion of all other games, since Feb 2012. (Okay, I pass the time with some games on my phone, but only when I'm away from my laptop.)

    I didn't mean it's free to buy, but it's sort of an open game and it's free with what you can do.
