How did you find out about Minecraft? by MangoSmoothie_ May 15, 2015 at 7:05 AM UTC

I found out about Minecraft through the Pocket Edition and I first thought that MC was stupid ._.
Then I actually realised how to play XD

Same. My cousin and my brother were playing Minecraft PE, and I was against it for a few months, then finally gave in.

I found out about it by a friend of mine who was into bukkit development. He told me it was good money so i got the Mac version and i have ever since been hooked to it.

For me, I was influenced into buying the game after seeing Minecraft merchandise everywhere, noticing several kids in my year level buying it and other things in society. Best $20 I've spent so far.

I played Runescape, but I quit cause I lost all my stuff. Then my brother told me about Minecraft.

In 2011 my friend made me buy it. Worth every penny. It was only 15 dollars :D

SnowSX3 May 15, 2015 at 10:05 AM UTC

My cousin introduced me to it.
I first got Minecraft on my I-pod touch back when the Pocket Edition was only in 0.2.0

Now, I own Minecraft on all available platforms.

My friend showed it to me a couple years ago. I first started playing PE, and eventually made my way to the computer version.

Well I was at summer camp (don't ask) and my friends there were talking about minecraft so once I came back home I gave it a try on my computer playing the Demo Version. Cool part was there was this glitch before 1.4 minecraft that let's you have infinite demo time even though it says you have two hours.

About 2-3 years ago, my 2 closest friends started talking about it but I didn't show much interest. One year later, my cousin let me play it on his iPod an I got hooked, that same year my school gave iPads to all 8th graders taking Algebra and I used it to play Minecraft in class. Later in the summer, another friend and I finally got the PC version.

It was turning up on the internet, everyone was talking about it, merchandise was beginning to sell. I looked it up on youtube and found CaptainSparklez, watched some lets plays, and now here we are (y)

edit: This was in 2012 I think, got it for my bithday

My friend introduced me to it in early 2011. I had the cracked version for a while, before that same friend bought me an account (with my choice of name).

YTMangoYT May 15, 2015 at 3:05 PM UTC

I have about 2 accounts 1 of them i forgot the username and password so idk where that is now ( problay hacked) then when i was bored after school i opened up my mums laptop and found minecraft installed on it then i was hooked after that i spent a whole summer watching captainsparklez jerrys tree video and got really fat and then i lost weight and played it all the time with mtdew and doritos ( and running every other day )

I started on MCPE to!

RIP_Avicus May 15, 2015 at 7:05 PM UTC

Me and my friend Jon(BloB_Gaming) went to our friend George(SBMous)'s house and they said we should play some Minecraft. At the time, I had no idea what it was, so I was allowed to borrow a spare account. We started playing survival and I have been hooked ever since.

My friend showed the Xbox version to me

Porkyyy May 15, 2015 at 7:05 PM UTC

I was at my friend's birthday party, and one of the guys that she invited showed me Minecraft.
After I played Singleplayer for a few months, I got into Multiplayer.

SirCyaniide May 15, 2015 at 8:05 PM UTC

I saw how to bully a kid in mc on youtube (my friends watched it). Years later I heard other friends playing it, then I gave in.

Nebbsy May 15, 2015 at 9:05 PM UTC

My friend bought me a gift code for my birthday :) subscribe to him: TheEnderFriend, he doesn't post often though.

My brother used to let me play various steam games on his computer, and then I noticed he had Minecraft. I played it for an entire summer. Eventually, I bought my own account and I've been playing it ever since!^-^

MLGtino May 15, 2015 at 10:05 PM UTC

I was eating some KFC then I decided "Hey, let's play some Minecraft!" using my first account.

_Stormz May 16, 2015 at 12:05 AM UTC

I knew it ever since Alpha. I just never bought it until Trexychan started playing with me.

Mathematical May 16, 2015 at 2:05 AM UTC

Friends introduced it to me, YouTube videos taught it to me, and my birthday brought it to me! Oh and a friend also told me about MCZone, thats where my pvp journey began :)

Emmaye May 16, 2015 at 3:05 AM UTC

A friend showed me the PE lite version, so my first game of mc was the Lite on the phone, then MC:PE back in 0.4.0 Alpha. Then  I got the Xbox version, then PC.

Same. My cousin and my brother were playing Minecraft PE, and I was against it for a few months, then finally gave in.
Same story but just it was my close friend and he kept pestering me until I gave in.

GalaxyBen May 16, 2015 at 3:05 AM UTC

Now, I was at my friends house(TheCampingRushe), and he is just like, I will go play some Minecraft.
I had no clue what Minecraft was or what you did on it. My friend was playing on Avicus, but back then it was skywars.co. He gave me like 1 minute on it, and I shot someone with a bow(best shot ever). Ever since then, I have been addicted to it. I got it on my birthday 2012, back in I think 1.6.2. Since then, Minecraft had been a good game. I quit it in early 2013, but got it back late 2014. I now think it's my second favourite game.

Mehrp May 16, 2015 at 6:05 AM UTC

5 years ago I went to my cousins and I saw them playing it. Love at first sight.

I started watching Minecraft around summer of 2012 (april) and i was just in my room playing w/ my Lego race track then i heard my younger brother laughing so much in my parents room so i went to check and saw he was watching a Minecraft LP by KingDaddyDMAC (whom today i still kinda watch) and after watching a couple episodes i started following his LP series, then i soon decided i want to try it out myself, i tried telling my parents to buy me the game but they wouldnt, so i started out w/ the cracked version, got into building then i started pvping around june 2013 when i found a server called Craftrealms, played their famous PvPWar and started from their, soon after i started watching Survival Games when i watched an SG vid from Grapeapplesauce (whom i still watch for fun) then i started watching and subbing to really good Pvpers (SG, Badlion, Kohi, Factions, Mini-games, etc.) and after 2 years since i started watching and playing the game, i finally got my acc which was bought by my friend since i made him 3 Custom PvP TexturePacks (yes i do TexturePacks) and yeah!
