Today we take a look at the recent surge in popularity of Minecraft, how Pewdiepie revived Minecraft and made the game popular again. Or did he? Google Trends suggest it was already coming back but Felix's push may have helped tremendously. We analyze this and more in today's video. There are many Minecraft channels doing really well right now - JackSepticeye following in Felix's footsteps, even James Charles, who surprisingly is very good at the game - and of course with major events like Minecraft Monday, it feels like the phenomenon created by Notch in 2009 is not going anywhere even a decade later. So let's sit back and enjoy the ride. Just like Pewdiepie riding Joergen towards the setting sun. Or like Sven riding the minecart into the tunnels beneath Felix's Minecraft mansion. You get the point. Anyway, enjoy the video and follow ya boi on Instagram ok? Thanks.

  • There are so many Lazarbeam simps in the comments section saying "LaZaRbEaM sAvEd MiNeCrAfT" even tho Felix first uploaded in June and Lazar first uploaded in July. Get your facts straight kids.

    • Lazarbeam started his Minecraft series after Pewdiepie. And check SocialBlade. Pewds got more views than Lazar. Only after Pewds gained popularity with Minecraft did Lazarbeam start. In other words, Lazarbeam ripped off Pewdiepie

  • Former Minecraft SLworldsrs in Mid-Late 2019 (who left because Fortnite was mainstream and/or Minecraft wasn’t): Hello..... again.

  • In A Nutshell: Felix started to create his own Minecraft series. Minecraft was all of a sudden number 1 on trending for gaming instead of Fortnite, because you know, over 90 million subscribers. Felix uploaded more and more Minecraft videos and the game continued to be number 1 on trending for gaming. Everyone noticed this, and realised Felix wasn’t going to stop soon, meaning Minecraft was gonna continue to be number 1. Felix’s Minecraft videos (re)popularised the game amongst his fanbase. Everyone started talking about Felix playing Minecraft. The SLworldsrs realised that people were gonna hop ship to Minecraft because Felix was repopularising it. Hence, they hopped aboard the Minecraft trend, and Minecraft regrew. To put it simply: The game regrew because the world’s biggest individual content creator started playing it. Sure, Lazarbeam may have made it trend at one point, but he was not as big in popularity as Felix, so it was impossible for him to make it mainstream. Since the second largest SLworlds channel was posting Minecraft and saying it is cool, of course everyone would start to think the same and post their own Minecraft content in order to remain relevant.

  • Minecraft is made in Sweden. PewDiePie is a Swedish SLworldsr. I believed PewDiePie’s favorite game might be Minecraft I assumed? The Minecraft creator from Sweden (now living in Beverly Hill, California, USA as retirement) name is Notch might be good relationship with PewDiePie back in Twitter. Here is a comparison. Both Notch and PewDiePie are from Sweden, both were strongly famous, and both were richest celebrities.
