TLDR; I Love Minecraft

I occasionally still get comments, questions, and even strong colourful accusations about why I do Minecraft content on my YouTube channel.  While I’m not obligated in any way to respond to these comments, I feel it’s important to communicate with any and all of my viewers who will listen, so I may clear up any confusion.
Thus, after reviving a comment purposing it was not my choice to make Minecraft content,  I wrote the following reply.  Feel free to read it at your leisure, but the short of it is: I LOVE MINECRAFT.

I understand you’re confused, but I’m only doing Minecraft because I love the game.  I’ve been obsessed with many titles before, such as Oblivion and Fallout 3, but nothing has ever kept my attention as long and firmly as Minecraft.
I bought it back in it’s early beta phase, and I have been obsessively playing it ever since.  So much so that it was eating into my time making videos over games which I USED to play four hours, specifically fallout and the like.  So when I deicide to join the Yogscast, it was a decision I made for several reasons. The association the Yogscast brand has with Minecraft being one of them, in addition to the great members who understand the struggles of being an entertainer.  (I joined for moral support too ok, working alone is VERY difficult ok?) However, I also knew that I couldn’t just switch from a gritty, mature, gun toting RPG; to a much more light hearted, voxel based, building game without suffering significant backlash.  However, I couldn’t keep making videos over games that just simply stopped holding all my attention long ago.  That would only result in bad videos.  I HAD to make minecraft content, it was a fire burning in me that I couldn’t douse!  With the game carrying a social stigma though, (oh GOD ur plyng shitty Minecraft now!!11!!) I had to get creative so as many people as possible would understand the new content.
Joining the Yogscast was the right choice for what I wanted to do, and am doing now.  Furthermore I had to work very hard to gain recognition and membership, an achievement I’m very proud of.  Thus the Minecraft content I make now is something I choose to do at my own will, and because I love the game.  It’s hardly been forced upon me.  Quite the contrary actually, it’s something I wanted to do for a long time.  Which is why you see so much of it from me now! =)

Were my words worth weight?
