In this episode we’ll take you on a trip down memory lane to a game you probably played when you were younger: minecraft. We take a qualitative analysis of how the game has provided us with nostalgic memories and impacted our lives for the better. We explore different ways that the game has affected us past and present, and how minecraft can spark collaboration and creativity.
