Reasons Why Minecraft Is Better Than Terraria

ikerevievs

The Top TenXW

1Better Graphics

Graphics should not be used to determine a game's quality. As long as the game is playable, graphics shouldn't matter (unless they are somehow ruining your eyesight, you might as well reconsider your choice of video game).

They Made the graphics like that on purpose, when you're moving with solar armor the shield is at an angle to show it's not just a bunch of big pixels, and plus if you still disagree it's honestly sad that terraria looks so, SO much better than minecraft with "bad" graphics

Never will Minecraft beat terraria in graphics Minecraft looks like a 1970s game but terraria has a lot more colour

Excuse me? Minecraft is nothing compared to Terraria's graphics, not even close - amenyoussef

2Bigger Worlds

So? You really want to lose your house because you went to explore and lost your way?

Although there are bigger worlds, there are hardly any uses for them. Rarely, you'll find someone who will rob 15 different villages, fish in 20 dofferent oceans, mine 1500 stacks of diamonds and mine every single tree in the world.

They've updated it and now the large world takes 45 minutes to WALK across in terraria In Minecraft 15

This is the only reasonable one on the list

3Better Characters

If by "characters", you mean protagonists in both games, Terraria takes the cake. Actual dialogue and quotes make Terrarian npcs actually worth talking to. However, if you mean character customization, Terraria is still pretty good, with 30+ types of dyes, 50+ vanity sets, 100+ vanity items and a large selection of haircuts, eye colours and clothing. Also, not everyone in Terraria looks the same (why does every skin in Minecraft have to have a fringe? )

Really? When I play minecraft I have a tiger skin, and I see lots of other tigers. In terraria, everyone's starting character is different. What if they are the same? Well, over 40 vanity clothes and armour sets should stop everyone in the same server looking like each other. Terraria is better than minecraft no matter what - astroshark

Does minecraft even have characters? Because unlike minecraft terraria makes the NPC's have personalities

Characters? What?

4More Popular

Popularity does not define a game's quality. Sonic '06 got a surprising amount of sales, would you say it's good?

Because the 5 year olds found out about it

Just because its popular doesn't mean its good. example a popular kid gets low marks and the least popular gets high marks

Terraria is still better

5More Expansive

It'd be nice if some actual reasoning was put into this argument.

I think that because of the small updates to minecraft, it makes the updates for minecraft way better, then that terrie or however you spell it

More expansive means it's worse...

Which makes it worst

6Came Out First

If a game's age is used to determine a game's quality, I assume Pong is the best game I've ever laid my eyes on. Am I right?

It came out first yes but they thought of the idea before Minecraft thought of theirs and it took so long to produce cause it's a big game with more items by the millions

Actually Terraria came out first - uros

Terraria came first

7Its In 3D While Terraria Is In 2d

It makes pixel art building WAY easier you don't have to climb over your creation and your size of the building is mildly limited so when it comes to building Minecraft kicks terraria's butt

Bubsy 3D is in 3D. If this is your reasoning for a better game it MUST be better than Super Mario Bros. 3.

Invalid reasoning. I guess sonic boom is better than all of the classic games combined.

3D is a hell of a lot better, because you have 360 degrees which means you can build amazing stuff, in minecraft

8Better and More Recognizable Characters

At least terraria has characters

Terri A has so many characters, too many

That does not mean Terraria doesn't have recognizable characters either.

9It Doesn't Have Complex Tasks

I actually have no idea how this is a point. If players nowadays expect everything to be handed to them on a silver platter, I'm disappointed.

At least it gives you a challenge other than 'open your inventory! '

Getting a saddle is a complex task because it is really rare. Minecraft PLAYERS ARE
NOT LAZY AT ALL SOME OF THEM CAN BUT OTHERS BUILD HUGE CONSTRUCTION
AND REDSTONE MECHANISM THAT TAKES DAYS, WEEKS, OR EVEN YEARS.

10It Has Creative Mode

You can get creative mode for Terraria via mods. Also, some of the Terraria staff are actually considering adding official creative mode to the game. However, unless you want to make giant pretzel dragons in the sky or building a full scale model of the mona lisa, there's no point in getting creative mode in Terraria. It only takes away all of the challenge.

Yeah but in Terraria you need the mod for creative mode.

Yeah but terraria is easier to build on so no need for creative mode

This is the only real thing on this list

The Contenders

11Minecraft Has a Lot of Mods

Terraria has mods too. And if Minecraft needs mods to compare itself to Terraria, that's sad.

Wow you guys. MODS?! Terraria has mods too, plus mods just means the game wasn't Good enough for them

Terraria may have won the battle but Minecraft will win the war.

Terraria doesn't need mods

12Vanilla Minecraft Has More Items Than Vanilla Terraria

Terraria has well over 3,000, that's right, THREE THOUSAND items. While I'm sure minecraft struggles to reach 500.

Check the wiki because I have nothing to say

I agree. Terrarians always say that they have more items but we have literally infinite items. You want an atomic bomb? Rename a piece of obsidian "Atomic Bomb". You want an iphone 7? Rename an iron bar "iphone 7".

13It's About Building and Exploration

It's a sandbox game.

In all of it's simplicity, Minecraft has no goal. I think of it as a good thing because you do whatever you want with no rpg limitation. Of course terrria has more swords items etc. BUT Minecraft doesn't need this Minecraft is about exploration and building without any sort of rpg. So here's my point: if you prefer adventure play terraria if you prefer building go out and let you're creativity to build something.

Terraria:Win the exploration Minecraft:Win the building.

Usually I would say terraria is better but in this case I say its about what type of person you are if u like building Minecraft action terraria

This is why it's awesome it's not like well finished the game better go get a new one

14Armor & Weapons

Terraria is better with armour

Minecraft makes it more challenging with weaker armour

1st thing, do you need mods for good armour because if so, terraria would still win and anyway terraria has more armour and weapons than just one which has another colour

How about the armor in Minecraft mods

15You Can Fly

You can glide in Minecraft, not fly and terraria has mmore types of flying anyway

It is changed. You can use elytra to glide over the air in survival in 1.9 update.

You can also fly in terraria in and Minecraft the only fight u get in survival is falling of the edge of a cliff

16Better Creativity

You can build almost anything on Minecraft. On terraria you are very limited

Can you summon a leprechaun in Minecraft and keep it as a pet?

Uhm, have you seen Terraria? Minecrafts swords and weapons are just the same style except a different colour. Terra rua has from swords that shoot laser beams to swords that shoots rainbow cats. Terra rua is obviously more creative than mine craft.

Can you name a hostile mob in Terraria?

V5 Comments
17Better PVP

In Terraria you need to aim and shoot magic projectiles. Mine craft? Spam clicking a sword.

Can the character in Terraria fight a zombie with bare hands?

Minecraft pvp: strafing and aiming
Terraria pvp: depends on your weapon on armor
No hate I love both if these games

18Vanilla Minecraft Still BetterV3 Comments
19More Combat

Terraria also has thousands more enemies than Minecraft and loads more bosses - FennikenFan9

Mods are NOT the same as terrarias vanilla. If you're implying that minecraft + mods = terraria then WHOOP-DEE-DOO

This was done by a kid. Terraria has much more combat. MC FANBOY ALERT! this is just invalid

If you get the more animals mod you have way more combat than terraria

20Better for Kids

Better for kids who call h4x every time you win and are annoying squeakers
