I been playing minecraft for a long time, first Vanilla, than on to modded. This is a great game due to fact you have total control of everything that you do. From the blocks you use to how you want to play it.
Now the Minecraft community is huge. There are conventions for it, one of the biggest conventions is called MineCon or Minefare Earth. They offer fans a chance to see great builds and meet some of youtubers they been watching.
There are even servers out there for those who like to play with others. I also know the website www.aspergersexperts.com has its own private server for those who are signed up to their site.
