The Minecraft: Story Mode Game Adds Plot and Characters to a Classic Game

The Minecraft: Story Mode game pretty much manages to do the impossible by taking a classic but extremely simple game and turning it into a full-in, immersive video game complete with a plot.

Although the original Minecraft can be fabulously fun to play for both adults and children, the fact of the matter is that this game doesn't have any plot or characters, which would seem to suggest that it isn't suitable for plot-based games. However, the Minecraft: Story Mode works because it takes the existing visual aesthetic of the game and adds in a whole plethora of new characters as well as an engaging plot that makes you feel part of the action.

Ultimately, this game proves that classic video games can indeed have a second coming if developers are brave enough to breathe new life into them.
