Top 10 Reasons Why Minecraft is Better Than Terraria

The Top Ten
1 Better Graphics

I see your point. Terraria's graphics seem to be better when you are far from the screen,
HOWEVER if you're really close to the screen, Minecraft is better.

I notice that Minecraft has smoother graphics than terraria.

Of course. Terraria is just pixels.

Minecraft in a nutshell: Blocks.

2 Bigger Worlds

In Terraria, the game pretends to show exploration, but if you're me, the only exploration you ever do is (A. Across the surface so you know where the dungeon, corruption/crimson areas (B. To find the jungle temple (C. To find biome-specific things to spawn bosses. Meanwhile, in Minecraft one has to explore to find many things, such as finding Strongholds, Nether Fortresses, and End Cities. Strongholds and Nether Fortresses are required for reaching the Ender Dragon and End Cities are a necessity for getting an Elytra. People say that the Minecraft world can be walked across in 10 minutes, and they are talking about Console edition. Console edition is the runt of the litter, and even Pocket Edition has worlds that span 16000000 blocks from end to end. While there aren't a plethora of generated structures, there is no guarantee that you will walk across a stronghold in 10 minutes. In Minecraft, you actually have to explore. In Terraria, everything is generated in front of you.

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.

You won't lose your house if you either bring a compass or a map! It really depends on the player, if they like exploring or if they just want to beat the game and get it over with.

Minecraft is bigger imagine a endless world!

3 Better Characters

Having a talk with the guide makes it sad to kill him just to advance. In Minecraft, killing villagers is the best part about them

Have you ever heard of vanity? Terraria has dyes, clothes than can match Shrek... and you say it doesn't. Salt.

Whilst normally I would see this as a valid and understandable reason to prefer Minecraft...
He isn't in that either.

What does this have to do with anything?

4 It's In 3D

It makes building structures a lot more complex, meaning more ideas and better quality the builds are. And that means you can get around it unless it extends to the world border (a transparent wall with blue stripes)!

That is probably the biggest thing. I have never played Terraria but in Minecraft you have beautiful 3D worlds, alongside beautiful music. But I also quite like the retro, pixelated imagery of Terraria.

3D is better. The games you guys reason is horrible not because it is 3D,
the gameplay itself is totally horrible. 3D can actually make a game better.
because in Terraria you can see a mob coming behind you but in Minecraft, seems like
a horror game and makes it pretty challenging because it is 3D.

This is why love Minecraft more.

5 More Popular

Minecraft was ranked #1 streamed game. Terraria missed the list by like 500 places.

Everyone in class would go crazy if someone hated it.

6 More Expansive
7 More Fun

I love Minecraft more then Terraria and I amit Terraria is fun, but I find Minecraft more fun. Maybe it's because I have played Minecraft longer or it's just I like to relax and build nice structures without getting attacked by a slime ever few seconds.

Terraria gets boring after 5 minutes of beating up slimes an digging mindlessly to the bottom of the world, or building boring, stupid, useless, 2d structures that only take 5 second to complete. Which ever you prefer you terraria loving losers

Does Minecraft take over a year to complete? No? Then I think you know who takes the cake here.

Minecraft is much harder to beat, and on top of that, the mobs in Minecraft are deadly (silverfish, endermen, creepers, ghasts, cave spiders) and also, you can do way more in Minecraft.

8 Better Creativity

Minecraft allows for the player to express themselves in a way that is a little more difficult to do on terraria, terraria is a fun game but it is more for those that prefer a challenge or enjoy game progression and stuff like that, Minecraft is about building or finding more efficient ways to work around problems like Redstone which can also be used to enhance a build.

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.

Minecraft opens a world for creativity. In terraria, you have to do more.

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

9 Less Complex Tasks

Actully, you don't have to do the complex tasks in minecraft or terraria. You can sit back and Bulid, go on a fishing trip, Try and survive in hell (Nether or Underworld) and set your own goals. That is what's exciting about the game! You can create your own path and follow it!

Man, I can make full iron armor with a diamond pickaxe and sword on the first day. So easy bro.

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

Making it more dedicated to building structures, which I like more

10 More Recognizable Characters

By character it means your appearance and skin. This makes sense cause in minecraft you have hundreds of pixel to work with if not thousands. And I know some will say that minecraft has two default characters but when have you seen more than 5 steves standing in a giant serve of a 100 players. Minecraft is a game that encourages player creativity so it allows the players to make their own characters rather than have a million skins to choose from.

Disclaimer: the following gave reference to java edition only!

Minecraft takes the cake here. There's no way I can forget all the people with naked skins looking for a girlfriend XP

Oh hi fellow villager, oh sorry clerk, I'm looking for blacksmith, have you seen him

The Contenders
11 Better Multiplayer

Very true. Every single time I try to go on a server in terraria it crashes. And due to the fact that you equip the same character, It messes up your terraria gameplay. Minecraft on the other hand, is better and more efficient, because there are actually admin who care about the server and not stuck in survival mode trying to get an item for 2000 years. Minecraft servers are better.

To be honest, I think that this is the only suitable reason why Minecraft is better than Terraria. Other reasons are not supportive enough.

It has so much more depth, many more possibilities, more people actually use multiplayer.

Minecraft haters keep forgetting about multiplayer which is fun

12 It'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.

True Minecraft has better building but terraria has some building aspects that Minecraft could benefit from like being able to change block's shape with the hammer and has many versions of the same block and changing any block's coloring with the painter. Raiju92

Minecraft has no goal and its roots are giving you a 3D virtual world for you to build your awesome things on, while Terraria focuses more on RPG stuff and fantasy.
Like building structures? Minecraft.
Like adventures and story? Terraria.

While terraria is basically a game that forces you to go out and fight mobs, bosses because of it's story. It'd be great if you could choose your story in terraria.

13 It Has Creative Mode

The thing is, minecraft is more of a building-oriented game whereas terraria, is more of a adventure-oriented game, so not having a creative mode isn't that bad for terraria, also, getting building resource in terraria isn't that hard, so you doesn't even need creative.

Mhm. True. And it is actually a great gamemode and a great idea. If you want to take a break from survival and adventure, why don't you go to creative? In terraria, It's basically the same idea over and over again. It gets very repetitive and boring. Minecraft easily has won!

This is very true, terraria is really dumb, (in my opinion) sometimes people want to be killed a stuff my monsters in survival, other times you just want to have fun and build whatever you want without those worries. #teamMC4lyfe

In Minecraft, I can go on a creative world and build a nice house. On Terraria, I have to install stinky mods.

14 Better NPCs

The NPCs in terraria don't just have amazing items for sale they have personality and feel surprisingly human for game characters and we can't forget how they help you. Minecraft has bland copy and paste NPCs who sell junk. Raiju92

In Minecraft there are villagers that you can have fun killing cause they have bad trades and weird noses, in Terraria there's just normal people, booorrinnggg...

Yes NPCs who sells useless junk for emeralds is way better then NPCs who sell you helpful items.

I agree. Have you ever had mutiple npcs at a village in terraria? No. 1 just spawns at a bed like someone was pregnant there.

15 Sexier Villagers

Minecraft Comes Alive is a mod that lets you marry villagers (which now look like regular humans).

This is the only thing on this list which is actually correct to be honest

The only valid reason

16 More Mods

Only real reason, terraria has stupid mods that just add more items, Minecraft has mods with items that make ones from normal Minecraft look weak and puny. Hardest video game bosses in my opinion, let's go rahovart vs everything in terraria, rahovart wins!

Mods are updates to make the game better just like terraria gets updated to make it better. Mods are completely valid.

It has more mods that adds a bit of content in Terraria one single mod adds what a Minecraft modpack does and I can't believe when I found a mod named "wooden shears" rly one useless item mod!?

Soon more mobs will come at the future to minecraft about 2016-2018?

17 More Combat

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

18 Better Armor & Weapons

Minecraft has amazing and glorious armor and weapons.

19 Command Block

It's very helpful for anyone wanting to learn how to code and what not which I can agree which Minecraft does do better.

But I don't like how you cannot get it through even normal creative mode. You have to actually type out its spawn info just to get a good number of them which I don't really like... Same goes for the mob spawners...

This is something amazing, which terraria does not have. You can basically spawn a creeper, with a volcano sitting on it's head, which is puffing out smoke made of sheep.

Minecraft is better than terraria.

This is why Minecraft doesn't need mods to be fun. You can literally create anything with these. But in terraria you can't.

A good start to learning how to code a computer. Makes custom maps powerful and like a minigame.

20 More Original
21 Infinite Possibilities

You can do working automobiles in Minecraft. What about Terraria? Plus, you don't NEED wings to fly. (creative mode people! )

22 Better Mods
23 More Awesome Things to Do

Can you ride a magical unicorn while fighting off enemies with a sword that shoots nyan cats in Terraria?
No. In Minecraft you can do that and even more!

Build an awesome modern city.
Lots of comments and people still can't let go of those RPG crap.

24 Better Building and Mining Root

Please... say this is a joke

25 Easier

Kind of too easy the game has no real assent you just go from weak to strong in a day. But terraria you go from being weak to a god over a longer course of time never feeling too strong and getting cocky. And the mobs are just plain old weak they can't open doors unless in hardcore mode by then you just sleep though the night the only time when mobs spawn thus skipping danger all together. And the final boss is just weak and bland just use beds that takes away from the challenge and fun of a boss fight the boss fight becomes a chore where you just spam click without trying. Raiju92

Minecraft is harder

Well, in that case, Super Mario Bros must be miles better than Super Mario World
