So I've been playing Minecraft for a VERY long time. If I remember correctly, Alpha appeared when I just started grade 11.

It just hit me....

....I'm an old fart now!

Anyways, I was wondering. How long have you been playing Minecraft? I'd use a poll but I feel that would take away from the interactivity that forums usually create.

I've played Minecraft in the past about 8 years ago but I've only recently gotten back in to playing ever since the new resurgence of popularity on YouTube and all that kind of stuff.

I started playing around 1.7ish...? It was a long time ago, although I do like playing on the super old versions.

Since May 28th, 2011 on beta 1.6.something, back in the days when food healed instantly and zombies dropped feathers.

Since 2011-ish... I don't remember exactly but it was a bit before I moved in 2012, which was my 4th grade year- I'm a senior now, so that makes it 8-9 years.

I first started playing...proabably four or fiveish years ago? I started on ps3 console edition, and only at the pestering of a family friend, and only after I insisted I wouldnt try it unless he paid for it. He showed up to a family event one night and was like "Here ya go! I bought it for you!"

I know it was before we had comparators but after we got pistons. Also console edition was always funky compared to java and even bedrock. But I still made quite a few things I was very proud of and should find screenshots of. I just always got really depressed in my single player worlds and quit them after a while because I couldn't find a reason why I was doing it.

Youtube has kind of kept me going with MC this time around, since you always have a reason to keep building more stuff and doing more things. Of course, still abandoned the SP world since life is much easier on a server xD

the day was tuesday, august 4th, 2014

my friend who was 5 at the time, came over to play that day, then he noticed that my mother had a kindle and he shouted "a tablet! are you allowed to play it?" i nodded and he proceeded to beg my mom over and over if she could buy me and my younger brother minecraft.
after asking 23 times, she gave in. she was very reluctant at first because the app was $6.99, and she was not to keen on spending $7 on an app she knew nothing about

after that my friend showed me the works and i was hooked immediately. we used to play together on pocket edition all the time, he would bring his mom's kindle and we would use our mom's. (played via lan worlds since my mom hated the idea of sending an 8 year old on minecraft servers to play with a friend across the street) then around thanksgiving of 2015, my dad brought home an xbox one, and the first game that came with it was minecraft. i had so much fun on that xbox, i still do.

then on my 12th birthday, (last year) i got a gaming laptop for my birthday and you guessed it! a java edition account :D
this comment has gone far too long as it is so i'll stop here c:

Fantastic story! Minecraft is an a amazing game and I'm sad to say I waited until I was 20 to pick it up x.x

It makes me happy to know how many youngens (no offense) are playing and enjoying it.

Also, console fam for life

I bought the Java edition May 11th, 2012 (You can check on Mojang's website). I was a freshman in college, about to finish my first year.

Best twenty bucks I ever spent, I've been playing the same survival map pretty much since then.

I bought it on April 13 2011. However, I've been playing it since it was basically just classic version and free to play on the website. Classic is still that way but I think it's just wild that it used to be just that lol.

I found out about the game in like mid 2012 and watched videos on it and played pocket edition until I got a Java edition account in January of 2013.

I like all the different versions, however java edition will always be the best in my eyes.

I can't remember but I bought the game while it was still 16 dollars or somat like that. Hmm. Before the End was put in. Before Endermen. Ahh, I remember when there was speculation that they were from the Farlands! Fun stuff. But I have no sense of time so I have no clue how long ago that was.

That's definitely a while ago haha. Endermen have been around for a long time.
