In early 2019, multiple meme formats based on Minecraft, such as Minecraft Armor Parodies and Minecraft Crafting Recipes gained popularity online, particularly on Reddit and Instagram. In the following months, popularity of Minecraft in the gaming community increased, with Google Trends statistic indicating that Minecraft searches surpassed Fortnite in May 2019.[3] The trend was accompanied with a series of memes which compared Minecraft and Fortnite, presenting the former game in a positive light and the latter in the negative, usually without providing a reason for this judgment (examples shown below).
