Yeah. People say they "miss Minecraft" which is confusing considering that the game is still active with tens of millions of monthly players, and that number is rising BECAUSE of the nostalgia.

But to a point it's not even about Minecraft. It's about the innocence of childhood. It's about a simpler time in our lives when we just had fun and the world didn't seem quite so daunting. I'm sure every generation preceding us, and every one after us, will have similar memories to cling to (Although I'm still dreading the "God, remember Fortnite? My childhood" days). It's not about the game changing, it's about us changing.

Interestingly enough, the years 2010-2014 weren't particularly good ones in my life, and I don't miss being a kid, yet a part of me still understands.
