The aim of this research is find out the effects of minecraft videogames on creativity. Eight undergraduates were assigned to experi-mental group and control group for recording of the brainwaves while playing minecraft video games and other videos. The results showed that the average of brain waves from different sub-bands for Minecraft games is higher than other games. The dominant of delta waves at Fp1 & Fp2 showed that the subjects are paying high attention and improved their decision-making levels. High T3 & T4 on Alpha( Minecraft's)wave indicates that it stimulates the brain to activate both parts of the brain. The results showed that Minecraft is able to increase high-level thinking. The core cognitive mechanism during playing minecraft video games was the attention network collec-tively referred as fronto-parietal attentional control network. This is indicated as sub-network known as executive control network, de-fault mode network and salient network in the previous research.
