This past week, I decided to purchase one of the most popular online games: Minecraft.

I have been a fan of Minecraft for a couple of years now, but never actually played it on PC. I have played Minecraft: Pocket Edition, but this is my first time purchasing and playing the game.

Before playing the game, I watched other people play the game. I didn’t watch a whole lot of people, just mainly two gamers on YouTube: iHasCupquake and Pewdiepie. I knew how the game worked and the basics of it.

Now, watching people play and actually playing the game myself was a completely different experience for me. I saw people playing the game like it was no big deal, making it look easy, but once you’re the one collecting wood and fighting off zombies and skeletons, it becomes challenging. At least for me, a beginner.

I decided to just play on peaceful mode, so I didn’t have to worry about any mobs attacking me. People might think that playing this game on peaceful mode is boring, but I honestly enjoy it since I can focus on building my house and farm without worrying about a creeper blowing it all up.

I currently have two Minecraft worlds I play in: one in creative mode so I can build anything I want without having to hunt down for materials, and one in survival mode that I share with my best friend. In the survival mode one, I am at our base tending to our animals and garden while they are out hunting and mining.

It is a nice way to distract myself from what is going on in the world right now and a nice way to interact with my friends. It’s also a great way to forget about all of my homework from my online classes.

I have really enjoyed playing the game this past week and love building in the game. My friend recently told me he was very proud of me for building everything I have built so far since I am a beginner in the game and just trying my best.

My favorite thing to do in the game is collecting different flowers and trees. It’s a nice way to have some variety and decorating the house in the game.
