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.
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.
