Minecraft has been a brand name that has achieved heights that perhaps only a handful of game franchises ever get to see. Most game franchises might achieve great success and popularity with the fanbase, but it becomes increasingly hard to stay at the top for long.
After peaking for a while with great sales and acclaim for a few months, many games often fade into obscurity and quickly forgotten about. Not Minecraft, as it has been able to withstand year after year of new releases and has still been a major force to be reckoned with.
Perhaps what makes Minecraft so popular is that the game is accessible to just about everyone who picks up the game. Minecraft is extremely easy to get into, and it's hard for players to put down the game once they get the hang of it.
