You Won’t Believe These Epic Minecraft Creations

The beauty of Minecraft ”“ which is released on the PlayStation 4 today ”“ is that it can be as simple or complex as you want it to be. If you just want to build a serviceable fort and protect yourself from hordes of creepers, that’s fine.

Alternatively, you could dedicate your life to create jaw-dropping masterpieces that’ll earn you global adoration (or at least from people who play Minecraft) ”“ as the people in this post have done.

(WARNING: trying to recreate any of these Minecraft creations could result in the loss of your job, your relationships and any kind of social life. It’ll be totally worth it, though).

Westeros from Game of Thrones

Most people who enjoy Game of Thrones read the books, or buy the odd t-shirt. Jacob Granberry decided to build the entire continent of Westeros in Minecraft, including brick-by-brick recreations of every forest, town and castle.

Although he enlisted the help of other Minecraft players, Granberry says building Westeros took thousands of hours. That isn’t too much of a surprise considering Westeros is about the same size as South America!

The Shire and Minas Tirith from The Lord of the Rings

Ever wanted to chill with the hobbits from The Lord of the Rings? Well, here’s your chance: a group of players has recreated the Shire on a dedicated Middle Earth server!

Think that’s impressive? Check out this recreation of Minas Tirith, the location of one of the series’ biggest battles…

Rapture from Bioshock

This recreation of the underwater utopia from Bioshock would be impressive enough if it was built on land. However, the creator has gone to the trouble of building it entirely under the sea too.

The Taj Mahal

The real Taj Mahal was built by emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved third wife, Mumtaz Mahal. The Minecraft Taj Mahal was built because…erm, it looks cool.

A level from Sonic The Hedgehog

Yep, that’s a fully playable 3D version of a level from Sonic The Hedgehog, although you control a clunky looking man instead of a turbocharged blue hedgehog.

Galactica from Battlestar Galactica

This is one for the proper nerds: a life-size recreation of the main spaceship from Battlestar Galactica. It took over 4 million blocks to make (and, presumably, a lot of free time).

If you’re planning to buy Minecraft on the PS4, or simply want some money so you can quit your job and become a full-time Minecraft architect, why not sell your unwanted games with musicMagpie?
