Dude's five-year 'Minecraft' game comes to an unfortunate end


Ending five years of anything is hard, but you'd ideally like to go out in a blaze of glory. It's not quite the situation that saw the unlucky end of a five-year run of Minecraft, reportedly the longest known on the game's hardcore permadeath mode.

That's how I die?" said Philza as the screen suddenly flicked over to'Game Over.' "Of all the things, I knew it was going to be something stupid." Playing for that amount of time in permadeath mode -- once you die in the game, that's it, no respawning and the world is reset -- is truly impressive feat, but that doesn't make this moment any less brutal.
