Game Theory: Minecraft's Ending, DECODED!

    READ the ending of Minecraft ►
    When Minecraft first came out, players were confused about one thing...THE ENDING. Minecraft's ending is a 10-minute scroll of philosophical text that everyone either wrote off completely or LOVES to HATE. And I'll be honest, when I first saw it, I thought they were right. This weird, philosophical conversation/poem/mumbo-jumbo confused everyone and seemed all wrong for Minecraft, a game that technically is ENDLESS! But looking at it more closely, the ending of Minecraft hides an amazing story about the game, the universe, and how awesome WE are as gamers. After doing this episode, I'm a fan, and I think you will be, too.

    Before he started talking about life being a dream, I was thinking, “what if life is just a really, really long dream, and when we go to sleep at night, we can temporarily “escape” from the long dream of life, and it also ties into the multiverse theory, even though we see a different “reality” each night, what if we are seeing reality from different perspectives, each in their own universe, and that we are, for some reason, trapped in this dream we call reality?”

    Well, the 1.9 update ended the end saga as I call it. The endedmen attack you to so you kill them and get their pearls so you go kill the dragon who is keeping the endermen hostage, notice the endermen some times attack the dragon yeah, they hate him. Don’t know what the shulker are about but they have the teleport ability like endermen and inhabit these cities which might tells us something.
    Anyway, the war of villager and pillagers as I call is the next part. The vindicator and the evoker join the world in 1.11 and create woodland mansions. Then the recent 1.14 is adding the pillagers and the ravagers, who raid the stupid villagers with the vindicator and evokers and witches even for the villagers valuables. In response to this the villagers recruit iron golems to defend their villages, they upgrade their city’s so they stand a chance against the pillage. Hope we get more on the village and pillage war
