PRETTY MUCH THE ENTIRE ARTICLE IS SPOILERS. JUST WARNING YOU.
So, the ending of MINECRAFT was not really one that the fans would expect. If you ask true MINECRAFT fans (Minecraftians? Minecrafters?), a good majority of them will rat on the game's ending, and the other majority will deny that the ending even exists.
In case you don't know what the ending is, after defeating the final boss of the game, the player is left with a ten minute text scroll between two deities (gods) about the meaning of life and the secrets of the universe.
However, the meaning of this text scroll is commonly misconstrued by the fans by one quote from it.
No. [The Player] has not yet achieved the highest level. That, [The Player] must achieve in the long dream of life, not the short dream of a game.
The majority of the people who played the game, who angrily fought the Ender Dragon, who built and destroyed anything and everything they could imagine, meeting the ending that they need to stop playing the game? That it doesn't matter?
No, that's not the ending. It wouldn't make sense why the makers of the game, who are making all of this money off you playing this game, would ask you to stop playing. Most of the people who saw that quote decided to go get tea or something, leaving and not reading the rest of the poem.... well as much as they can.
Some parts of the poem are scrambled and are unable to read. But, what they imply is left to be read.
Sometimes I do not care. Sometimes I wish to tell [the player], this world [the player] takes for truth is merely [scrambled] and [scrambled], I wish to tell [the player] that they are [scrambled] in the [scrambled]. [The Player] sees so little of reality, in their long dream.
Think of it like this. If both real life and the game are dreams, then aren't they both accurate places to use your time? The answer is yes. But then, if both reality and MINECRAFT are dreams, then what is reality?
Well, that sort of depends on your beliefs? Whether you believe in the spirit of the mountain, father sun, mother moon, ancestral spirits, animal spirits, Jinn, Ghosts, green man, gods, demons, angels, poltergeists, aliens, extraterrestrials, Leptons, or quarks (hidden Quote!), the Flying Spaghetti Monster, or anything else; it still fits in because as they say in the poem:
The words change. We do not change
They even go on to have an inspirational message about how everything we make in MINECRAFT or in real life is made of the same stuff, and it just depends on what we make with it. It's a call to keep making, then to make even more for the benefit of humanity.
And Personally, I think that this message is better than Shia Labeouf's. So, I guess it's time to wake up, no?
