For the uninitiated, the long explanation is that Minecraft
is a popular independent video game based on an open-ended cube world where the player gathers materials, creates and crafts objects, and builds constructions in a free-roaming, anything-goes world, and also has to fight zombies, skeletons and other evil creatures. The short explanation is that Minecraft
is a massive waste of time but one of those really amazing, satisfying wastes of time. Much like internet dating, there is no winning or losing Minecraft
; you do it to fill a void in your soul.
And also, according to creator Notch Persson, to really gay things up
In a recent blog post, the original creator of the video game said that despite the main character being designated the aptly named “Minecraft Guy” and that he once jokingly referred to the character as “Steve?” the main character has no gender, nor do any of the animals, who can all reproduce with one another (within their own species). This being said, he draws the conclusion that everything in Minecraft
is gay, which rationalizes the excessive examples of gigantic penis buildings.
