I really enjoyed Minecraft from 2011 - 2013. Played on PC exclusively, me and my friends had a server and the community is what kept it going. Building towns, exploring together, creating rail networks to each new settlement we created. Bar all the silly drama that happened, it was a fun experience.
The community faded, and generally, friends would get bored of the same map. We reset the map once a year to reinstate interest, but there's only so many times you can start from scratch until you realise there's not much else to do unless you turn to modding.
I've not played Minecraft properly in a long time now. It's still weird to me that this game - once popular amongst internet-savvy young adults - became an icon for young kids. To this day I see Creeper beanies and grass-block backpacks. I was possibly playing the game before they were born.
Regardless of all that, it's good for MS to have at least 1 successful IP.
