[HOT] : Minecraft has racked up a trillion views on YouTube (PART ONE)

Minecraft is the most played video game in the world today. Initiated by a simple alpha version in 2009, Mojang’s title attracted a very curious audience from its inception, and its history is also closely linked to that of gaming on YouTube. Obviously, with endless possibilities for creation, construction, design and other customizations, the cubic game has met as many inspired content creators as it has passionate viewers.

Today, the video platform celebrates the trillion (1,000,000,000,000) cumulative views for videos with Minecraft as their main theme.

You can watch the retrospective of the evolution of Minecraft on YouTube, an offer that has always grown and at the same time diversified. The strength of Minecraft has been to offer drastically different content on the same game called “sandbox”. Whether they are speedrunners who finish the title in less than ten minutes, survivalists who try to last 1000 days in hardcore, architects at heart who produce ever more gigantic creations, or even computer fans who reproduce a computer in Minecraft …

Note also that with ultra hardcore mode (UHC), Minecraft is technically the first to import the concept of battle royale into the history of video games, and this a few years before H1Z1.

The dedicated timeline created by YouTube also allows you to go back to the different creators of Minecraft content since 2010 and to see their evolution. On the other hand, there is hardly any mention of the very important French community on Minecraft. In any case, it makes us want to go back to 2011 to review a little guide to TheFantasio974.

Minecraft smashes new record on YouTube

For twelve years now, many players have been playing Minecraft, the game launched by Mojang, which was swallowed up by Microsoft at the end of 2014 for no less than $ 2.5 billion. Twelve years of playing therefore, but also twelve years of videos posted on the YouTube platform, which is currently celebrating a new record for the game.

The trillion!

Indeed, the video platform was keen to celebrate a very special event, namely the trillion views for Minecraft content. This goes through a small dedicated website, but also through an official video, posted on the YouTube account. For the record, let us remember that a trillion corresponds to 1 000 000 000 000, that is to say a trillion. Yes, it is huge.

Concretely, Google has gathered no less than twelve years of regular downloads of videos related to Minecraft on YouTube. Videos generated by thousands of creators around the world, and whose cumulative views now exceed this staggering trillion views. Google explains that Minecraft is far from losing momentum, so the threshold of two trillion views could be reached quickly.

“As our data shows, it took about eight years for this community to generate 500 billion views, but only about two more to double that number to reach the trillion. We can only guess at future records to come, but like this milestone, it will be fun to take a look, ”YouTube says.

For the record, Minecraft is today * i the best-selling game in the world, with no less than 238 million copies sold, all versions combined. The game is ahead of the indestructible GTA V with 155 million sales, as well as the unforgettable Tetris, which you inevitably had on Game Boy in the 90s, with its 100 million sales.

Minecraft becomes the first game to break this record of views on Youtube, Mojang gives thanks gifts

Game of all records, Minecraft continues to reap in its bag. The proof today * i with a symbolic level exceeded on Youtube. A record that pleases the developers of Mojang Studios, who decided to thank the community.


Released in 2010, Minecraft has since achieved many records. The latest figures, dating from 2020, mention 200 million copies distributed around the world making Minecraft the best-selling game of all time. In addition, figures from last August evoke 141 million monthly active users: a community probably maintained by the creative freedom offered by the game as well as the many updates made by the developers.

But today * i, Minecraft has just set a new record: it is the first video game to exceed trillion views on Youtube. It was Youtube which announced the news, by publishing on its site a very well-done modular retrospective to better understand the progress made by Minecraft. We can see that 2021 recorded 232.5 billion views, or 635.6 million per day.. A trend that has increased year by year:

As our data shows, It took about eight years for this community to generate 500 billion views, but only about two years to double that number to one trillion. We can only guess what highs they will reach in the future, but like this stage, it will be fun to watch them.


The community therefore always responds to the creators of Minecraft content on Youtube. A gesture that Mojang Studio and the platform appreciated since they dedicated to thank her with the following gifts:

  • The YouTube home page gets a Minecraft makeover for 24 hours.
  • Fan favorite Minecraft videos over the years are automatically featured on YouTube.
  • A YouTube Creator Skin Pack is available for free at the Minecraft Marketplace for one year.

Minecraft (for PC) review: full test and 2021 review

Our full test & review

In the gaming spectrum, hugely successful Minecraft sets and dominates a category of its own. It has no story, no particular genre, no characters, no dramatic scenes, and graphics that one could politely call “retro”. Instead, Minecraft lets you shape the blocky world around you with your digital hands, and has proven surprisingly compelling to a legion of fans. Because of its playful and creative aspect and the designs it inspired, Minecraft is an editor’s choice and is among the best PC games.

Before starting

Do you have an electronic device? He can probably run Minecraft. The game is currently available for $ 26.95 for PC, which I’ll review here. Minecraft looks great on a high-end gaming PC, but the rest of us surely appreciate its performance, even on a standard desktop PC. You can even play on a Raspberry Pi, if you like that sort of thing. Each version of the game is slightly different, but the basics are universal.

Since 1982, PCMag has tested and rated thousands of products to help you make better purchasing decisions. (Read our editorial mission).

Minecraft is also available on consoles. Versions are currently available for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 ($ 24.99 on Amazon), PlayStation Vita, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One ($ 24.99 on Amazon).

For the phone obsessed, there’s Minecraft: Pocket Edition for iPhone, Android, Windows Phone, and Amazon Fire. Note that the Pocket Edition is the most drastically different of the bunch, and that a game you start on one device won’t be available on another type of device.

When you download the game, you actually get a launcher app that lets you maintain multiple separate installations of Minecraft on your computer. You may, for example, need to maintain an older version to play a specific world you’ve created or to run a particular mod. All you need to do is create a new profile, select the version of Minecraft you want to run, and you are good to go. If you are interested in the world of Minecraft mods, be sure to read our recap of the best Minecraft mods. Everyone else will just press play and start playing the most recent version of the game.

I’ve been playing Minecraft since 2010, and I’m still shocked at how much the game has changed and continues to change over time. Swedish developer Mojang avoided the sky-high prices of big games by selling copies of Minecraft long before it was “done.” New features continue to come out at a fairly steady pace.
