Reasons Why Minecraft Is Better Than Terraria


The Top Ten

1 Better 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

Terraria has WAY better graphics then minecraft

Minecraft Sucks

2 Bigger Worlds

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

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.

3 Better 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

Characters? What?

You mean the twerking 5 year olds and the villagers with their penis on their face?

4 Minecraft is fun, Terraria is not

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

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

Proof? Exactly.

5 More 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

Terraria is still better

Sometimes less popularity is better - Yatagarasu

6 More Expansive

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

Which makes it worst

I think minecraft is better than terraria

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

7 Its 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

Yes but in terraria you get grappling hooks and literal wings. - JustSomeGuy123

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

That makes Terraria better. Minecraft: I just mined 200 diamonds, looks behind himself, gets blown up by a creeper. Terraria: In a little bit further, I'm gonna smash a demon.

3D and 2D is both good. Terraria is still better though - Yatagarasu

8 Terraria is just a sandbox

And minecraft is a dirtbox

9 Came 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

Mincraft came 2006 wile Terraria was made 201w Bam

10 Minecraft is overhated

Because it's filled with 6 year olds that scream into microphones... Like you?

The Contenders

11 You have survival mode in Minecraft

Terraria is only survival mode? Without mods, that is. - JustSomeGuy123

12 Better and More Recognizable Characters

At least terraria has characters

Okay yea, everybody looking the same with steve and alex is super boring. - Yatagarasu

Terri A has so many characters, too many

Um... yeah the characters are more recognizable cause there is only 2!
and Terraria has way more and better ones with over 12 different npcs

13 You have prisons in Minecraft

Prisons? What for? I haven't seen any prisons in minecraft. - JustSomeGuy123

14 You can make bottomless pits in Minecraft
15 It 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

Right. I'm just gonna go and find a dungeon, fight two zombies, and take a thing I'm gonna use to ride a horse. Not hard. A huge redstone mechanism is a waste of time. - Yatagarasu

Terreria doesn't have as complex tasks. NOT

16 It 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.

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.

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

This makes minecraft the best lololo

17 Minecraft Has a Lot of Mods

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

Minecraft needs mods because it has very little combat-related combat. Plus, most are crap. In Terraria, we have mods that, 1. Are only needed when you've played for YEARS, and 2. They add immense amount of content.

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

Because minecraft is limited and you need mods to make it "cool" - Yatagarasu

18 Minecraft has the best characters

What characters? - JustSomeGuy123

19 Vanilla 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-I don't even

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".

But, those are just renaming an object, does the object have the same purpose? Yes. If you name an obsidian block "atomic bomb" will it do what an atomic bomb does? Nope. It will do the same thing as an obsidian block. - Yatagarasu

20 Minecraft has the ability to do anything

No it doesn't... - Razzorz
