I believe it. He is very famous, so people all over the world would want to know about him. I'm sure plenty of people reading that page are not fans of his though.

I think I've heard of it, but I don't know what it is. There are so many video games with huge followings now...I tried Clash of Clans, World of Warcraft, Super Mario, Halo, Call of Duty, Zelda, Grand Theft Auto, Tomb Raider...if you're not into video games, I can't imagine how you'd know Minecraft is at the top of the list.

I've never played it. It rang a bell when I saw the answer, but I could've gone another 15 minutes and not guessed it. For some people, playing video games is their thing. For others, especially those who grew up before there was such a thing as video games, there are plenty of other things that constitute enjoyable recreation.

It's not really a cultural phenomenon the way Super Mario Bros, Tetris, Street Fighter, Pac-Man, Pokemon, or even World of Warcraft were. Pretty easy to not know about.
