Minecraft and COVID-19

The popular sandbox-style game known as Minecraft has various surges in popularity. This is brought about by various things, this most recent surge very likely being an effect of the quarantine and the coronavirus. 

Due to COVID, things have changed in the past year. Our ways of life and how we go about how days have been especially impacted. We’re cautious in public settings, and we spend a lot more time at home than we did before. The excess time at home means we’re going to find other things to occupy our time, perhaps one of them being reemerging ourselves in a game or community we grew up with. Most reemerging themselves into the game they grew up with caused a spike in its popularity; both in the game itself, and the content surrounding it. 

Minecraft is a game that’s been around for nearly a decade and that has grown and developed tremendously. It impacted the lives of many, and it tends to be a staple in one’s childhood. The popularity it has gained over the past year due to corona displays it’s time adaptable nature and the impact it has on a generation.
