Top Ten Reasons Why Terraria Is Better Than Minecraft


The Top Ten

1 Kinder community

Anything popular becomes crappy at some point. I quit Call of Duty because of that.

Minecraft used to have a great community back in the day because it was "tighter" and less popular. I expect the same thing for Terraria, once it gets super popular (if it does), it will also have a community. - thebadscientist

I agree one time I press q instead of w and I dropped a OP sword which took ages took ages to get and some dude got it and called me a noob and he ran away. In terraria once Again I dropped my legendary star wrath some dude got it he had weaker gear than me (i forgot maybe post plantera) and he told me to follow him and took me to a cave and gave it back

You can easily rebind that button. But ask yourself this question, if you dropped $100 on the floor in a crowded street, will anyone try to take it? Of course they will. You can't blame the game. - thebadscientist

Minecraft community is filled with screaming kids. Terraria is less popular so not as many kids play it and it has a kinder community. - SammySpore

Only because less people play it dude. IF Terraria became as popular as MineCraft it would have screaming kids. - Finiteboy

Minecraft once had a kind community, but this was around the time that it was still in Alpha (so around 2010)... as the official game came around (2012 and onward) the childish community entered the scene and so began the "sequal" to the Sonic fandom, immature kids not accepting opinions and constantly dropping f-bombs, "mature" members that are the total opposite of what they appear to be, trolls that suck at trolling, servers full of griefing and cheating, etc.

Terraria came around in 2011 and, despite the few immature members here and there, has always had a kind community that doesn't irritate me in any way shape or form. - KennyRulz244444

2 More content/updates

Terraria 1.3 Added more content then Minecraft ever had it had more items, more bosses, more weapons, and more enemies

Terraria's got way more updates and more content. - Deqfarah

Minecraft updates - OH, look, 1 new mob and 8 new items!
Terraria update - OH MY GOD, 100 new enemies and 1000 new items!

Minecraft isn't about a load of items, it's about using items to create anything you want. - thebadscientist

3 Way more combat

This makes it a whole lot better. - Deqfarah

Yea about the combat... Who does not like having a challenge fighting a green walking exploding penis when they want to destroy your house!

Diamond sword has more damage than the other weapons in terraria in ratio of the person's health to the weapon

You guys always say that Terraria has better damage than Minecraft weapons.But compare the ratio of the players health to the weapons.Minecraft wins.

4 Over 100 guns/weapons/powers

Minecraft is really lame compared to Terraria when you think about the quantity of items and blocks in the game. Minecraft has only 8 different ores, and only THREE of them you can make tools and armor with. They only have basic weapons and tools. Nothing special. Terraria has probably like 20 different ores and tons of different swords and weapons that do awesome stuff and look really cool. - minecraftsucks101

200 damage meowmere compared to a 7 damage diamond sword see the difference?

Minecraft only has 6 ores, which you can only 5 of them including wood and cobblestone. Terraria has over 100 weapons, ores, monsters and way more things to do. It's also WAY more exciting and builds up more suspense than "Minecrap".

Minecraft has a couple of swords and bows that you can enchant, but they aren't really that powerful... seven damage... boring.

Terraria has (what the title states) OVER ONE HUNDRED SWORDS AND WEAPONS that are all either useless or incredibly powerful and useful! They are worth getting and can possibly last much of the game. - KennyRulz244444

5 Terraria was made several months before minecraft.

It is true that all of Terraria's bosses were made before Minecraft was out of Beta, and it is possible that Minecraft copied partly, but there is such thing as INSPIRATION. INSPIRATION is when you see something amazing and try to do something similar (reasons may vary - this is NOT a textbook ). But think about this: it is MUCH easier to program a 2D world than a 3D world: you don't have to design sides of blocks, you can just go crazy w/ pixel art, and you don't have to program the physics in a certain way. Plus, in Minecraft, a couple of blocks have different physics. Then when they add mobs and bosses, both parties have to program AI, health, animations, drops, etc. So basically, Minecraft may or may not be a rip off, and Terraria may or may not have a bit too much of Minecraft's aspects. But it's your choice to let it matter.

For all those people who say "Minecraft was made before". And "Terraria copied Minecraft". - Deqfarah

This is plain stupid. Minecraft Classic came out in 2009. It was officially released in 2011, but it was available for 2 YEARS before that. Terraria's development didn't even start until January 2011. - minecraftsucks101

It's true. It took a long time for terraria to be made

Not true really. Minecraft was being developed from 2009-2011. But Terraria was released only about 5 months after it started development. - minecraftsucks101

6 More creative

Why is this even here? Minecraft and Terraria are creative in different ways. You can build in 2D, and use walls and platforms to make it look 3D, and some people enjoy 2D. In Minecraft, you can build in 3D, which some people enjoy. Again, it's a split road between 3D and 2D.

You could create amazing buildings with over 100 blocks to choose from
Minecraft only has 40 plus block terraria wins by 20 miles

7 Better graphics by a landslide

Do graphics matter? I agree that Minecraft's graphics suck, but graphics don't count on determining the greatness of games. For example, Pokemon Red had crap graphics, but it's gameplay was more solid then Call of Duty: Black Ops III.

Graphics don't matter kids.

Terraria is still better anyway. - KennyRulz244444

At first the graphics are ok. But when you to different places especially at night. - Deqfarah

Sorta, minecraft makes my eyes hurt

8 More enemies

Actually there are more than 15 bosses

The enemies in Terraria look better than a zombie, a spider, some green thing that blows up, etc. - KennyRulz244444

Lol, 1.10 mobs ruining your ideas with zombie=husk, Skeleton=Stray

Hey the badscientist, I agree with there being like 7 reskins of the Terraria zombie, but still, Terraria has almost 200 unique mobs while minecraft has only 13. - astroshark

9 Less lag

More like no lag. I love Minecraft but it lags

Minecraft I play with 2 players I can't move

One thime in the survival games,2 seconds after the invincibility I got killed because I had a diamond helmet and people wanted it so badly and minecrap lags so much that I was killed in 7 seconds and I got no hits with my stone sword

There may be no lag, but I can't count how many times me or my friend couldn't join other friend's worlds or just lost connection and left.

Terraria is still miles better. - toptenzen

The Contenders

11 More mature community

The Terraria community isn't filled with bullies and immature kids that don't know any better than to swear and come up with very uncreative and overused insults. They also accept opinions more positively than anybody from the Minecraft fanbase would. - KennyRulz244444

Minecraft community: 90% kids. 9% teens and 1% adultsTerraria community: 15% kids 25% adults and 60% teens

12 Better mods

Terraria mods are like a free dlc which adds a extra 100+ hours of epic gameplay

Mods in Terraria have sooo much more content than any mod in Minecraft.

Are you seriously arguing this? Minecraft has a more dedicated and extensive modding community. - thebadscientist

Minecraft mods maybe added cool stuffs but
Terraria mods give you more challange after defeating moon lord (Thorium Mod)

13 A lot more mobs and monsters

In Minecraft there is 'bout... 10 mobs? And in TERRARIA there is about 1000 mobs! Can you see the difference?

14 Lasts Longer

In Minecraft, if you play for just 1 month, you've done everything. You have an enchanted diamond sword and have beat the ender dragon, and nothing else to do. In terraria, when I was just 1 month in the game, I had weak gear. We beat golem after two years of dedicated play.

I can get diamonds on the first day

Minecraft is simple. Eat sleep fight mine win. There you go! I beat five Minecraft worlds in one day!

Terraria is less boring than Minecraft, I managed to spend months and months on Terraria while Minecraft seems to take me a few days. - KennyRulz244444

15 You collect costumes

You can collect costumes in terraria, in Minecraft Only dyed leather armor

In Terraria I can be a fox with fishron wings who kills people with the Terra Blade. In minecraft I can be a dull fox with boring armour and a weak sword. - astroshark

Stupid why would we have costumes in minecraft we have awesome skins

Link outfit? Yes please
Mario and luigi outfits? Yes please
Leather tunic? Mmhnahh

17 You can save characters and go on other worlds

In Minecraft, you make a world and get a bunch of stuff, and say you want to move it to another world. There's a difficulty. In Terraria? No problem!

In Minecraft, when you go to another world / server, you have to redo all your "hard work". Unlike Terraria, you can save all your weapons, items and gear with you on another world / server. You can continue your journey in Terraria without having to redo all the things you did, such as fighting a hard boss.

And you can trade with your friends. For example, imagine you wanted to trade 50 truffle worms for the possessed hatchet, you can go with you saved items and give your friend the hatchet. Easy! In minecraft, you can't even trade much, AND you can't get your stuff in other worlds. If world hopping in Terraria didn't exist, I would've never got the scourge of the corrupter and vampire knives. - astroshark

18 Character Look

In Terraria, you see armoured players who look totally bada$$. In minecraft, you see naked weirdos who ask for a boyfriend/girlfriend. - astroshark

In MC, you see naked boys and girls. what BRUH. In Terraria, you see guys with wings, armor, and it looks like he is about to kill you. In MC, you see noobies that are hulk and just plain perverts.

19 Harmless mobs

Creepers are just stupid things to mess up your buildings so you spend more time on Minecraft when on terraria it doesn't make you want to curl up in the corner and die

I honestly think that Terraria mobs are WAY more dangerous than Minecraft mobs, for example a Creeper would stand no chance against a Bone Serpent. See my point?

You can see Terraria mobs from all angles, in Minecraft you can't. Creepers are a threat because you can't see them if their behind you. - thebadscientist

Eye of Cthulhu (weakest Terraria boss) would defeat the Ender Dragon (hardest minecraft boss) in a few hits. - astroshark

Can creeper defeat dungeon guardian wich gonna kill those creeper in 1 punch

20 Minecraft = Boring

Yeah, I know, lot's of people say, "Minecraft has kool mods! Derm! " But let's be real here... The only reason Minecraft has these "kool" mods, is because the game is so darn limited! "Oh, but there is kool looking' castles, and Mine Carts 030." come on people, let's be real. Minecraft is now becoming a corrupted compilation of everything the fans want, instead of an actual game. Terraria has never (and hopefully will never) have this problem

Even most mods for Minecraft get so boring after awhile.

Mods are hard to install sometimes and could contain viruses to mess up your computer big time

If you ask 10people if they think minecraft is interesting 9 will say no and the 1 yes is the mental kid next door.seriously minecraft sucks!
