I have to be honest; my first introduction to Minecraft on PC was not a positive one. My friend at university linked me the game and I tried it. I didn’t like it at all, from the blockiness to the pixellated graphics and an unknown purpose. I died by mining straight down.

Girls don’t play video games…or do they?

This is a myth.

Of course there are girls who don’t play video games but same can be said for boys. Some people have no interest in them no matter what gender they are. The truth is, you can say that just about anything. Sports, gardening, hand crafts, cars, etc. Video games is nothing different. It’s just the marketing that has thrown society off to believe that video gaming is a male dominated industry. Continue Reading
