I don't know how many years I have played this wonderful game. I think I started back when 1.1 was released. I don't have the best memory, but I do remember playing before 1.8. Minecraft has been a great part of my life.

I purchased it in early 2011.
I remember that evening.
The beta days were superior.
I miss watching my big brother play Minecraft.

I started playing when it was Halloween update AKA. version alpha 1.2.0.
Almost 9 years!
Question for Lemon-Lime_chill... Which 1.1 release it was? Alpha, Beta or full release?

So, thats makes it almost years if you started with 1.1 full release. But at least 5 years (according to 1.8 release date).

Nice thread!

Boy, I still remember it like yesterday... I started playing in March 2014, and it was on a Friday (but I don't remember which). There are two reasons why I remember... first is because I have a few screenshots from the very first "building" I made on a server which I discovered the next week, but second because we had an awesome evening that day...

My gf had been playing with MC for a while and she figured I might also be interested in all that. So she showed me the whole thing. At first I wasn't really interested or better put: was wondering if this would be something I'd enjoy. What to do, how does it work, etc... So confusing (this was 1.7 btw). So she put me into creative mode, showed me that you could turn lamps on and off with redstone and that was the beginning of the end for me; I soon discovered (by accident!) that you could turn off torches and then i realized that I could actually build TTL circuitry (logical gates, AND, NAND, OR, etc.) which was an insta-hit ;)

We ended up playing survival together (my gf created a new world and used the share lan on her laptop) and well.. it was morning (got light again) when we figured that we might want to get some sleep :D

This was also when I learned the differences between creative and survival :P

Started with 1.8.x and it didnt take long to 1.9 come out. Hmm thats errr over 3 years or so playing
Well, game was bought mostly for my kid tho :D he is little over 11 now
He still plays several times in a week java version on PC and sometimes PS3 (got it from friend)
I take long and short breaks every now and then as i do not play regulary
Kid plays with mods, survival, few servers, and ftb&at. Me just builds stuff on PC; creating different kind of maps for him to play with. Some have builds, others do not. PMC has been really helpful for us and it will stay so ^__^ ps. kid loves the project section....

I've been playing since 2014. I got the demo in July, and bought the game in early August. Can't remember what exact date it was, but I keep on thinking either the 2nd or 13th.

To give another idea of when it was: 1.17.10 was the latest version. I'm not a very old player, but most people I meet seem to literally have just joined the game a year or two ago.

I started playing when beds were added in Beta 1.3, though I didn't get an account until 1.4.2 for Christmas. I never made an account prior because you didn't really need to as cracked versions were super common. Ever since those early days though I've always loved snowy taiga biomes because my first house was in a snowy taiga with a friend.

Gosh! I can't even remember! I was introduced to Minecraft Java on mobile when it was called 'Minecraft Lite'! I can even recall memories of how it worked. It was essentially hardcore on every world, you play on it, and you lose it. My fondest memory was watching Youtubers such as VintageBeef playing it with his friends, except there wasn't a way to join others in Minecraft Lite, so I mistook a zombie for an actual player! Even though the app came out 3 - 5 years ago, it really feels like 6+ years!

My brother first introduced the Xbox 360 version to me in around late 2011, and I did play it every now and again when he went out for about 6 months, before I started getting serious with it in around mid 2012

I started at 1.5.2 and have been doing commands ever since not soon after. With 1.13 on the horizon, restructuring all commands and also my education really kicking off into the programmer's direction, I decided to focus on learning code instead of the new MC commands. Now it's 1.14.4 and I have a little more time in the weekends because of an internship I'm doing. No more weekend homework for a bit :).

I now know how to make datapacks and posted my first couple after 2 years of inactivity.
