A Minecraft player shares a recent video of themselves interrupting an intense conversation between two villagers.
As with other people who have played Minecraft, a new video shows a player and two villagers in an odd situation. These village-dwelling mobs are best known for their ability to trade items with players, but they can also interact with other villagers. Villagers in Minecraft can talk to each other and do business by making strange sounds and staring at each other.
Since villagers were added to Minecraft in 2012, players have been able to trade items with them and use them to populate their own towns. By placing specific job blocks, the profession and appearance of these villagers can be altered, as well as the items that can be traded with them.
In this video uploaded by u/Lachie mat3281, the player can be seen exploring a typical Plains biome village. A pair of nearby villagers appear to be engaged in conversation. The player approaches the pair just as the villager fisherman departs from the farmer. This crowd only travels a short distance before turning on the spot and returning to the farmer. After briefly locking eyes, both villagers slowly rotate to face the player, almost as if to say, “Mind your own business, u/Lachie mat3281.” Even though this is only a 14-second clip, it does an excellent job of demonstrating the amount of personality that these villagers can exhibit in the game.
Villagers, despite their apparent simplicity, have complex behaviors and patterns in Minecraft. This includes socializing (times when villagers stare at each other) and gossiping (moments when villagers share memories about players). The latter have an effect on how the village as a whole views the player and can either increase or decrease the price of goods. This amusing scene is probably representative of one of these interactions between villagers.
Especially for players who spend the majority of their time in private worlds, the villages bring much-needed life to Minecraft’s overworld. Villagers, despite not being perfect, have their own schedules and interests, making them excellent additions for those who want their own town to feel more alive.
Nevertheless, villagers can be somewhat rigid and irritating. Frequently, these passive mobs can be found staring intently at players, becoming infected by zombies or being killed by other mobs. For those seeking perfection, the villager falls far short. Regardless, this player demonstrates how peculiar and amusing these creatures can be.
