Minecraft is the first game to have one trillion views on YouTube.
The game is on the same list as Grand Theft Auto and Tetris. Meanwhile, Minecraft has reached a new milestone, which no other game has ever done.
On Wednesday, YouTube announced that this sandbox survival game had officially surpassed one trillion views. Meanwhile, 1 trillion views is a huge number; however, given the popularity of Minecraft and its views on online streaming platforms, this comes as no surprise.
