For an example entry, GamesBeat Culture Editor Sebastian Haley has opted to share one of his most memorable moments:

“I hadn’t really followed the initial Minecraft craze so when I started playing, I just ran around punching cows and getting killed by skeletons. Then it dawned on me: dig down. And dig I did, and the game finally clicked. That was a pretty cool moment, realizing there was literally an entire world underneath the top layer. Also, the name of the game made a lot more sense. …”
