Minecraft isn’t free. It’s a paid game. But why?
It’s not just because Minecraft is a successful game, but also because it’s such a unique one. I play a lot of games, and Minecraft is the only game that has ever had me obsessed with it for more than a week at a time. I’ve played thousands of hours of Minecraft, and have spent hundreds of dollars on additional content and mods over the years.
For many people, this makes them assume that the price tag is reasonable: $26 dollars per year is equivalent to around $1 per week for access to the full game. This isn’t necessarily true for everyone though, especially if you’re on a tight budget or don’t have any disposable income at all!
