I first played Minecraft ten years ago, while I lived in my apartment in south Fargo. I lived there from January 2010 until mid-2011 so I'm going with 10 years...close enough!
It was loads of fun back then as I played on a server with a group of people that I knew at Microsoft. A few years after that I played for a couple months on a server that I ran, with my brother and a few of his friends joining in. And a couple months ago I decided to give it another try, with the goal of hunting down some achievements (hence Bedrock edition on PC) and beating "the end".
Achievement collecting has gone pretty well and has made me explore some game mechanics that I never would have otherwise--textbook good use of achievements. I haven't gotten to the end yet but I think I will get it done sometime. I recently saw a guy speedrun a random seed in 30 minutes or so which blew my mind.
