It starts by showing off character customisation in Sea of Thieves, but then goes on to describe the player’s gameplay journey.

What to play next: games like Minecraft

What to play next: games like Minecraft

Seven years ago, on December 20, 2010, Minecraft released in beta, already a huge success.

By then it had been bought more than 500,000 times – chump change compared to the 122 million it’s sold as of 2017 – and was well on the way to becoming the mainstream icon it is today.

Since then, it’s seen countless updates, spin-offs, parodies and clones, but a lot of them don’t quite capture the magic of the original. Thankfully, if you’re looking for something new to play after all these years, there’re plenty of games like Minecraft that take at least one part of what makes it fun and adds a unique twist.

Platform: PS4, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo Switch (Early 2018)
