Minecraft is what’s called a sandbox game. The player creates the game themselves by manipulating the world within it.
Where players have unlimited resources to build and the ability to fly.
It is a game where you dig and craft different kinds of 3D blocks.
There are no specific steps or goals so everyone playing the game is having a different experience.
