My first reaction to minecraft was "Why's everything cubes? I'm guessing you use the arrows keys to move (like most other games). Oh... I'm wrong! It's left handed controls! This is a great game!" I'm now great with redstone, a great builder and a player who's beaten the ender dragon.

I thought, "What is this pointless game with terrible graphics?"

Then I watched a playthrough on YouTube and fell in love.

I'm a senior compared to you people! I started back in November 2010, only a few months after the first alpha release. I have seen Mojang shape the game and I bloody hate them for the villagers but I love all the new building and mob additions. I guess the first time I didn't really know what it was but a friend let me use their account and it started from there.

I started off on a Toshiba laptop getting about 30FPS which I later upgraded to give me about 100. I have changed to this Acer and I am getting at least 200FPS. :3 I feel sorry for you guys.

I have despised CraftBukkit for late updates and Mojang for constant server overloads, which is going on right now and I am bloody angry as a cause of it.

I joined right before jungle biomes were added.
My first reaction was,"Okay, I made a world and I'm playing it, now what?"

Hey! When I first started playing minecraft, it was in Beta 1.8

The first world I ever made I had no clue what to do. It was one of those maps where you spawn in an ocean biome (As a matter of a fact, it was actually a survival island world) Anyway, I spawned on this small island having no clue what to do. I saw tall grass and I punched it. Occasionally it would drop seeds but after clearing the entire island of tall grass, I only got 3 seeds. So I said to myself "Maybe you can only hold 3 of an item at a time....."

There was a tree on the island.

I had no clue how to actually break blocks, so I kept button mashing the mouse trying to break the tree. (Fail)
Finally I figured it out. But then came another issue. How to craft stuff. I didn't know how to make a crafting table, so I only used the 2x2 crafting area in the inventory. So I thought I was screwed and would never make it through the first night. Stranded on that island, I saw.... Squids. I thought they were evil octopuses...... So i punched it (Hey its pretty legit with those sharp teeth :P) I got an ink sac and had no clue what to do with it.

I stayed on that island the whole night. I thought my hunger bar would go down but it wasn't. I thought (hmm... maybe it doesn't deplete when you aren't doing anything vigorous...) Night time came and I was flipping out. I knew about endermen, and was scared ­less of them. I ran around on the island frantically. I had no home, no food, and no weapon. Well fortunately for me I was on Peaceful mode and had no clue that I was even in that mode. After realizing what happened, I closed out of that world and started a new one.....

To be continued :P

I started playing Classic and was hooked.  I then played on a friends account and could not stop playing.  Got an account 2 weeks later.  I started playing around Alpha 1.2.1_02.  Right after the Halloween update in November of 2010.  Haven't stopped playing since.  

My favorite update is definitely Beta 1.7.3.  Perfect terrain, Colors were pretty.  Mountainous and full of trees.



Posted 11 December 2012 - 01:15 AM

I first joined in 1.3.2,I started playing because of my friends,thought i'd give it a shot.My first reactions where-This game is so fun 0_0  . Then it got dark-Hmm,whats that noise?*creeper blows up*



Posted 11 December 2012 - 02:19 AM

For me it's a LONG story. So I went down to the basement with a bunch of other kids. One was playing Minecraft. But this is what the person said: Its a game where you have to kill animals to survive. So I didnt try it ( since I love animals ) but I told my cousin . He got MC PE lite then me. Then we got MC PE, then Minecraft PC.

Version: 1.2.5
Edit:that was the short version
