Minecraft has been around for more than a decade, and at that time, diamond axe and creeper and Steve’s bulk became ubiquitous. They are also all over YouTube, and today the platform is celebrating more than 1 trillion Minecraft video views, which contains some impressive statistics on all creations to date. I spent a lot of time watching Minecraft live broadcasts, building guides, etc., but these were not the most popular Minecraft videos of the past decade. All the while, the most viewed Minecraft YouTube video was not even made in Minecraft at all.
To commemorate this milestone, YouTube brought together some Visual performance The largest Minecraft video of all on the platform since 2010. They are divided into the categories I expected, such as “survival games”, “survival multiplayer games” and “speed pass”, but also added “role playing” and “animation”. Although popularity varies by country (and YouTube shows this), the category that has dominated for many years is animation, with close to 5 billion views in 2020 and 2021.
The animation tag is a a lot of Of the different Minecraft videos, the largest of them is not actually made in Minecraft. So far, the number of views reached 178 million is an animated short film, in which Minecraft meme cryptid Herobrine has various monster families competing to see who is the strongest.
127 million views are the 2018 video about the stickman Fight against the cross-section of the Minecraft world, Reminiscent of the popular old Animator and animation video People of my time may remember. There are also real-life crossovers, both in real life and in real life in Minecraft.
Then came the music video era, during which CaptainSparklez dominated the most popular Minecraft videos for three years with imitating popular songs and fashionable 3D animations, and its style looked like the world and characters of Minecraft.
I am fascinated because even though I have played Minecraft for a full ten years, I have never watched one of these videos. Minecraft was launched when I was in college, so my nostalgia is all about opening a server with my first group of colleagues and using it to hang out with friends who moved across the country. In 2014, I saw players my age grow up in the hardcore world on Twitch.
However, we may not be the ones who made Minecraft a global phenomenon.This honor belongs to those who watch Minecraft and Freddy’s five nights across the border Parody songs of 2017. They will definitely experience nostalgia in the comment section of the video.
No judgment-I mean sincere. Compared to the equally silly Flash animations popular on early YouTube, these Minecraft videos are very beautiful. Remember when you could quote this as the height of lunch room comedy?
