25 Weirdly Awesome Things You Should Know About Minecraft

Some—probably very few—people might be wondering what Minecraft is and why you should care or know anything about it. Most of you, especially the younger generation and most likely their parents as well, are aware of this Lego-style adventure game that has been considered the most addictive PC game in the world for the past few years. With more than 100 million registered users worldwide, Minecraft has become a global pop culture phenomenon, and according to some reports, there have been cases of parents seeking professional help to keep their children away from their computers because they have become obsessed with the game.

In addition, some YouTubers who had the brilliant idea to make channels that focus exclusively on the game have become rich and famous and have millions of subscribers.
