It’s honestly hard to imagine that many people viewing Minecraft content over the years, but here we are. It makes it the most viewed video game on the platform. To celebrate, YouTube’s logo currently contains a little Minecraft animation, and it’s also set up a special page featuring a range of different Minecraft community stories. There’s a cool video to go with it, too.

The game’s appeal has continued to grow, even since Microsoft bought Mojang in 2014 for $2.5 billion. “Minecraft is more than a great game franchise – it is an open world platform, driven by a vibrant community we care deeply about, and rich with new opportunities for that community and for Microsoft,” Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said at the time. Microsoft and YouTube said the game has steadily grown since then.
