Definitely the first years of Minecraft's peak. I feel bad for anyone who never got to enjoy that good decade of gaming together as children or less grown adults.

I can't say for everyone when I say this, Minecraft was the main part of my childhood. Me and my friend group of 5 played survival and the "Minigame" tab with "Battle" and "Glide". The memories I made with them will never be forgotten. Though it just makes me wish things could last for as long as we wanted to, I hope they're in a better place now.

What other game made y'all aspire to be a gamer and make collective memories to strangers online?
