Is Minecraft Kids Friendly?
The last line might have thrown off concerned parents reading this article. Minecraft, at its core, is an adventure game. Players can carry out several tasks, all the while trying to survive in the wild. From building houses to mining minerals, most of the game involves survival and world-building.
While at first glance the game might not be much of a concern, the problem arises when players traverse across the map. There are “monsters” or “hostile mobs” as they are referred to, that spawn on the map. These mobs then target players if they appear in close vicinity of them, and you can either attack and slay them or run away. Crafting weapons and enchanting them is a large part of the game dedicated to the same.
For concerned parents, Minecraft does contain mild violence. Players can also go off to the Nether dimension which is depicted as hell-like, with monsters and lava. This might be a point of concern for parents, however, the cartoonish player and world design really mellow down the effect of the environment and other concerning elements. The game also involves mating, which while displays nothing graphic, can lead to some awkward questions. Accordingly, Minecraft is universally rated appropriate for ages 7 and above.
