Ah, Minecraft. Such a lovely game. Yes, we know a lot of people that adore it, as well as people that hate it. Despite that, Mojang’s unique title has managed to hit another milestone today, as more than 10 million copies have been sold on PC and Mac. This is revealed by the stat counter at the game’s official website, a counter that keeps on rising and rising. In fact, it feels like a mini-game guessing what the exact number of those sold copies will be after a couple of minutes. Go ahead, try it; you’ll be surprised how fun it can get.
And since we need to say a little bit more about this title (you know, in order to make this post longer for you to read), let us describe it for those that are not familiar with it. Okay, my guess is that most of you know what Minecraft is – as we’ve been covering it this whole time – but that’s a bit irrelevant at this point.
Minecraft is a game about breaking and placing blocks. At first, people built structures to protect against nocturnal monsters, but as the game grew players worked together to create wonderful, imaginative things.
As a result of that, we got some pretty amazing custom made maps; from recreations of a number of games (like Bioshock: Infinite and Doom) to recreations of films like the world of Lord of the Rings.
Anything can be recreated in Minecraft, and in our opinion this is the strongest point of Mojang’s title. The only limit in Minecraft is your own imagination.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
