Top 10 Minecraft Versions

This list will have some major versions of Minecraft. I might not have put in a version that is major, but I'll try to put in significant ones.

The Top Ten

1 Minecraft 1.8

I started pooingg on this version


Lol, it's just better than 1.9

2 Minecraft 1.5.2

best ever

It's the best!


Restone and Nostalgia

3 Minecraft Beta 1.8 "Adventure Update"

Villages, strongholds, new stuff. Mostly all awesome!

Except for one little nagging thing... NEW TERRAIN GENERATOR THAT RUINED Minecraft - SammySpore

4 Minecraft 1.7.2 "The Update That Changed The World"

We all know this is the best one yet.

Restored the awesome terrain generation from beta 1.7.3 but with many new biomes. Before 1.8 which added so many items and blocks that the original intent and minimalist were gone.

1.7.x I have to agree is one of the best set of versions with 1.7.10 having so many mods created for. I stopped playing MC when 1.8 came out and the combat mechanics changed then came back to 1.7.x after a few years to play some good old mods. Nostalgia man, who needs 100 different types of coral block or whatever.

A BUNCH of biomes were added as well as amplified option for world generation. Basically a lot of the worlds you have has changed in this update. - Coolguy66666

5 Minecraft Beta 1.6
6 Minecraft PC Edition
7 Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition
8 Minecraft Infdev

This version significantly changed Minecraft. INFINITE WORLDS. - Coolguy66666

I wouldn't put this on here, because when Infdev came out, it actually went BACKWARDS from what was in the previous version, Indev. No mobs, no day/night cycle, no crafting, you couldn't even get items except for the 1000 wood and glass that was automatically in your inventory. The version of Infdev that's in the launcher is the later version, which is MUCH more advanced, but the first Infdev release was crap.

9 Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition
10 Minecraft: Xbox One Edition

The Newcomers

? Minecraft 1.7.4

The Contenders

11 Minecraft Alpha 1.2.0 "Halloween Update"

Despite that they ruined the sword system, this update finally spiced up the End and featured the elytra.

This update has the Nether. As well as other mobs. - Coolguy66666

12 Minecraft: Wii U Edition
13 Minecraft 1.7.10

Definitely the best version for mods

As someone who loves playing with mods, this is my favorite version.

The best version when it came to mods. - humaid2003

Love this one, especially how well it works with modpacks - Wth

14 Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition
15 Minecraft 1.6.1 "Horse Update"
16 Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition
17 Minecraft 1.0

I feel like it improved on beta 1.8 just a bit while still being nostalgic. It doesn't scream "MINECRAFT IS IN BETA" but it also doesn't scream that it's too modern. I like it.

This update ruined Minecraft for me. They added a new terrain generator which was terrible! I now only play single player on Alpha or BET. A - SammySpore

The first release should always be mentioned - Coolguy66666

Not the first release, noob. The first full version release. Minecraft was around for years before this. I played Minecraft back in 2011. - FakeLists


18 Minecraft Pocket Edition

Now it is not called pocket edition anymore it is just called minecraft and it almost has all the stuff that is on PC and it is awesome!

19 Beta 1.7.3

Best of the best

20 Minecraft 1.13 "Aquatic Update"

This update makes my computer want to commit suicide. - CameronBinder

It's a HUGE update! - neehawgamer

Best update

It is the best update ever

21 Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition

Just the best portable version of minecraft

22 Minecraft 1.9 "Combat Update"

Most people don't like it because of the combat, but there's more things than just combat like elytra, derpy snowmen, boats and so much more

It changed the game for the better duel wielding and a cooldown it is one of the best updates

The new combat system is great in my opinion

This one really added a lot of cool stuff such as the elytra, plus it works decently with mods along with the legendary 1.7.10
