Game Theory: Minecraft's Ending, DECODED!

    READ the ending of Minecraft ►
    When Minecraft first came out, players were confused about one thing...THE ENDING. Minecraft's ending is a 10-minute scroll of philosophical text that everyone either wrote off completely or LOVES to HATE. And I'll be honest, when I first saw it, I thought they were right. This weird, philosophical conversation/poem/mumbo-jumbo confused everyone and seemed all wrong for Minecraft, a game that technically is ENDLESS! But looking at it more closely, the ending of Minecraft hides an amazing story about the game, the universe, and how awesome WE are as gamers. After doing this episode, I'm a fan, and I think you will be, too.

    I do you know a reason about Life (there are lots more from where this came from) to experience what life is like a dream that you don’t wake up from until it ends (basically you wake up when you die)

    In the more recent updates of the game when bone blocks were added, it was discovered that they can make up huge skeletons buried in the deserts of skulls and ribcages. It was revealed that they were “ancient beings” that used to roam the world, but nothing else was really discussed about this. This possibly connects with the two beings communicating in the ending. Minecraft is truly beautiful, it’s seen as a kids game but it goes so much deeper than that. It’s like a beautiful world, one that’s healed long after an apocalypse that destroyed everything and you’re meant to rebuild it however you may please to fit your beautiful vision. You’re alone, but you don’t feel alone. Not because something else is there but because loneliness is nonexistent. The world is yours, with endless possibilities. It’s magical in a way. You can make the game whatever you want, from a peaceful, lighthearted gameplay where you build your little house and farm to a world where you can get together with friends to do a speed run and kill the Ender Dragon as fast as you can. When you think about it, Minecraft is just the foundation of what you want to create. But isn’t that was life is, or what it’s meant to be? You can do what you please in life, and you shouldn’t feel the need to fear for anything because the world is yours and it’s simply how you craft it to be.

    There is still a way to read the garbled text. It's just using §k to make it garbled, and then §r to return it to normal. Try it in Minecraft. It works.
