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'm pretty sure it means that Minecraft is an alternate reality, of a dream about a universe. Its saying that you went ahead and went further into the dream that anyone before and now you must wake up and return to reality.

    9:17 it's an idea similar to American gods and running water, that we create the gods in what we worship, by being slaves to the 5 day work week we created the god of Wednesday. And even if we don't worship a god like Yahweh or allah, we are still religious because we have given worship to other things. Alternatively it may be that these to entities have taken part in our dreams, comprising the computer programs around us, or they could even be rogue lines of code within minecraft
