Next Gen Video Game Theory

Why Did Minecraft Dominate a Generation?

Why has Minecraft exploded on YouTube? And that’s a question I’m going to ask. Minecraft is one of the first games that relied on shareability and being able to create shareable content.

It was based upon creativity and the ability to create something that is all about the creative endeavor of it all. When you make something, you want to share it. And this is what crowdsourcing stuff is, but Minecraft came along at the perfect time.

It came along when YouTube was starting to take off. So people were able to share their videos. If you look at a lot of YouTubers who just started YouTube, they were Minecrafters Minecraft was the perfect spell as to YouTube and shareability and creativity and allowing those things to be changed and shared all the time, and that’s why Minecraft exploded.

It is a neat thing that this game was able to become so popular. The first time I saw it, I didn’t think this game was that great. Although I was missing the point of what Minecraft was, Minecraft was a lot deeper.

It was about creativity and being able to create cool things in a world, and there wasn’t anything like that unless you were a game developer at that time. It was revolutionary to give that type of creativity to a player. I think that’s why Minecraft has been so successful throughout the years; we’ve seen other games come along that have mirrored what Minecraft has done.

Nevertheless, Minecraft continues. After all, it has such a vast base because it had the shareability of a game, unlike anything else at the time.

Sometimes we underestimate games because we don’t realize how shareable some games are not very good, but because they’re not very good, many glitches and errors happen. Then they get turned into videos making them more shareable in the long run. So this has happened previously and will probably continue to occur in the future. The gaming community can also make a game work or fail. If a game doesn’t have a good gaming community or the gaming community is toxic, the game will probably be forgotten because people are going to be worried about sharing content. This is not the case with Minecraft. Minecraft has a very good community that is supportive in most cases and that’s really what you need to have a successful game you need to have a positive community.

An additional factor that allowed Minecraft to take off is the community’s love to create mods; the modding community got into it, and the game was able to take off even faster.

And in the end, developers need to create shareable games that can take them to the next level in this day and age. That can be in the form of YouTube shorts and clips in your game that can very easily be shared on Tik Tok or other platforms with a shareability approach. To them.

In conclusion, the ability of Minecraft to create content that is creative and has a great modding community is what led to Minecraft’s success. Additionally, people could share Minecraft on YouTube at just the right time when that platform was taking off. And it just caused everything to explode when it came to this game.
