Relax as I battle the mobs around my castle. I'm relatively new to Minecraft and I'm learning how to play so please have patience with this old man as I work to better my skills. Feel free to give me tips and pointers in the comments section. Your input is appreciated.
I began playing Minecraft in my spare time in June of 2017. At the time of this video, this is the only Minecraft world I've ever built and I did it entirely in survival mode. I am a newbie and the only thing I know for sure about Minecraft is that there is much to be learned about Minecraft. In my first two Minecraft videos I showed you my castle and mining outpost and all subsequent Minecraft videos will be gameplay videos of me learning new things, trying out your suggestions, and trying to stay alive and prosper.
See all of my Minecraft videos with this handy playlist:
Concerning "survival" mode. I don't know much about creative mode other than you don't have to worry about anything happening to you, or to the treasures you've accumulated through hard work. Survival mode is what I prefer, and please keep in mind that this is only my opinion. You see, for me, there needs to be the element of "loss" involved in any video game I might play. In Minecraft, I am compelled to build and gather in order to better my life within the game. I think this aspect of the game is brilliant because it is our human nature to want to "make things" to make life easier and better. Survival mode brings in another element of real life, an element that keeps us alert and vigilant, and that element is "consequences of our actions".
Like life itself, in survival mode, Minecraft has consequences, though thankfully not as devastating as those sometimes encountered in real life. The thought of having my Minecraft inventory lost all because I carelessly decided to tangle with a Zombie on my way back to my home base, is enough to make me avoid the Zombies until I have safely deposited my haul of gold, silver, diamonds, and coal, into a storage chest back home. So, more than just the decision of where to place the next blocks, the decisions one needs to make in order to survive are what seems to appeal me. Minecraft is much more forgiving than real life though, probably because in order to survive and prosper in Minecraft, the right decisions seem so blatantly clear, and more importantly, easy enough to execute. Where as in real life, for different reason, things aren't always as clear for people.
My message to everyone: when it comes to real life, think about what it took to get to whatever point you are now. Think of the hard work, the sacrifice by you, and perhaps by someone else that might have helped you get to wherever you are in life, and don't blow it...don't carelessly roll the dice with the Zombies when the consequences can be devastating.
My videos are best enjoyed using headphones or earbuds.
The videos on my YouTube channel portray some of the typical day-to-day activities that I do for relaxation. This video was produced with relaxation in mind and hopefully has some ASMR qualities. Too much stress is harmful to your well-being and in today’s fast-paced world, stress management is more important than ever, and so I hope this ASMR video acts as a stress reliever for those watching and a sleep-aid for anyone having a difficult time falling asleep.
