I watched my bro play MC when it was just updating from B1.8 to 1.0. Then i was like: I need a account. When i first went into the world i didnt know what to expect (i never heard of a creeper,enderman, or silverfish before), until i got murdered by a creeper. then i upgraded my account. After that this only went through my mind when it came to minecraft: best game ever.
When I first heard about minecraft, I was like "Omg this game sucks, lego is for little kids". But when my friend let me on his minecraft world, I was hooked immediately. I started playing minecraft in beta 1.4, right before 1.5. The multiplayer was great, and I still love the game as much as I loved it back in those days
I had heard about the game from a friend at work, and I did some youtube video watching to see what the fuss was about and was intrigued enough to try it, watched a few minecraft basics videos to get the gist of what I should do in this game and the basic mechanics of it. When I first played, it took me some getting used to the controls and moving around. And my first whoa moment was "what? it's getting dark already and I hear zombies.... Not good! Must build shelter or dig a hole to hide in till morning" Come a long ways since that first day playing but have become addicted to this game like the rest of us on here. I've learned a lot here and on the wiki and through experimenting in the game.
