One of my best friends sent me a link to the game and wanted me to play, at first I told him I'm not clicking one of his random ass links, but he finally got me to play. For the first bit I felt the game was rather stupid, but I played it with him anyway, and realized it's probably one of the best damn PC games ever.

Saw it on YouTube, back in the days when you first saw minecraft, it looked and made you feel differently than you do after playing it for a while. I wish I could re-live that feeling...

My friend was playing back before alpha.  Watched him play a few times and then decided I should play myself rather than watch.

I was browsing for games on the internet and took a chance on a beta. Glad I did.

I brought the alpha during that Minecraft server outage, back in 2010. The one that caused the surprise free-to-play weekend.

Youtube while browsing through ROBLOX videos. Posted Image I know, I can't believe I played that game...
Anyway, that was in Alpha 1.1 I believe.

September (or maybe August) 2010, my friend starting talking about this game. It sounded pretty awesome so I listened to him talk about it, one day he invited me over and we played it. I then went home and bought it myself.

My friends asked me to play and got me addicted to it. Youtube also contributed to that addiction as well.

Found about it long long time ago (I believe still in Alpha, not sure what was the version) through friends. I remember I bought it as it was cheap at the time (and they did mention that when the game was ready it would cost much more) but never really played it that much (I used to play a lot of FPS...) until like 6 months ago... Now its the only game i have played since then...

A friend of mine showed me it last year on my birthday.  He downloaded the pirated version of single player just so I can see if I would like it or not.  Few days later he bought me the full version of it.
