Gamers have always existed in a plane where playing opens up a whole new world of freedom. In the virtual world, you can be any character and create legends and be limited only by your imagination. This way of gameplay has opened up a niche called sandbox games and many game companies are developing new and innovative ways to create worlds of your own. Still, there is no forgetting where it started and that is with Minecraft.
One of the best-selling games in the world right now, Minecraft presents gaming in a different light, trading in lush graphics and modern fares for a purely gameplay-driven experience. Minecraft is famous for its blocky, low-resolution style visuals that resembles Lego bricks with extremely exaggerated pixel sizes.

As cliché as it sounds, sniper scope glares from afar will cue you in to sniper locations just like they do in the movies.
