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

Overview of chances of encountering a screaming 8 year old:

FNaF: 99.97%
Undertale: 98.72%
Minecraft: 75.32%
Terraria: 32.27%

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

In Minecraft, nothing is a struggle, because you are the predator. But in Terraria where thousands of demons and creatures lurk around every corner, you become the prey, which makes Terraria at least ten times better than Minecraft.

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

Terraria's 1.3 update literally destroys minecraft. - FlyingFridge

3 Way more combat

This makes it a whole lot better. - Deqfarah

Mana, need I say more?

Lol, Minecraft combat is so boring and repetitive. Also in the 1.9 update when they had a cool time for a weapon it was supposedly unhackable. But guess what? Hackers made a anti cool down hack!

If you have ps3 add me DIMENDsniper '' I have all items map

4 Over 100 guns/weapons/powers

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

Can't beat the guns. - Deqfarah

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".

Why do they even compare this like for real minecraft dickeating off of terraria because terraria has guns minecraft tryna get guns and u say oh minecraft has horses and you can ride a pig terraria has mounts you can ride a unicorn a bunny etc. And minecraft think they can win by making the game 4k but they only have updates ever if anything they need more bosses minecraft need to dickeat more and catch up especially since mojang sold the company that's how u know in 2015 because they KNOW they can't compete with Terraria.

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

Terraria was released after Minecraft became relatively popular, but before Minecraft was out of beta. - ClovertheAverageCat

By that logic, Superman 64 is better than The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

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.

Who doesn't like creativeness. - Deqfarah

Terraria is not 2D or 3D. It's in-between.

Terraria is STUPID

Just put in your opinion with no evidence. You make Terraria look better. - Theco

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

It's not 100% square, but still good enough so it looks like a block. Minecraft doesn't even support grass on sides. - Theco

8 More enemies

Over 15 bosses, and 150+ enemies. - Deqfarah

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

There's so many monsters in Terraria. It's way better than Minecraft. - Catlover2004

9 Less lag

More like no lag. I love Minecraft but it lags

Minecraft I play with 2 players I can't move

Terraria lags more. But other reasons outweigh this.

I have NEVER seen Terraria lag. But Minecrap, that lags A LOT.

10 You can fight a gigantic mechanical santa

Robots are cool. Giant is the adjective of awesome. Santa is fat. Lets say it together... "Lets fight a cool, awesome fatty! "

Its presents are elf meter and chain gun!

A santa tank what more can u ask for what he does is he kills people so he doesn't have to deliver so many presents and you can fight him all year round

Even is Santa is fake, you must believe in him afterward. - Theco

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

I love the fact that this kid going threw out the entire thing and writing "Terraria is STUPID" is just proving our point.

Way better community. I believe that terraria wont lose its happy community due to the fact that it is better than minecraft to begin with. the pegi 12 rating brings in more mature people to play it and the oblivious 7 year olds are entertaining to us, we don't want to be like them.

12 Better mods

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

Terraria mods are much more enjoyable and difficult, like Prefixes for Enemies, Spirit, Calamity, Thorium, etc.

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

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?

Fight a literal god. - Theco

So true

Easier things :
Minecraft zombie : 3 kinds ( not includee baby and pigman)
Terraria zombie : 10-15 kinds?
Easier way to find out

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.

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

I can get diamonds on the first day

I once cheated in Adventure Mode by giving myself diamond tools to mine stuff. Guess what I found? Diamonds. - computerfan0

15 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

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

Even most mods for Minecraft get so boring after awhile.

Did you know that Terraria is rated T - Charmedyeti

16 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

You're not SUPPOSED to bring your gear from singleplayer onto other worlds. Like multiplayer. - mattstat716

17 You collect costumes

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

There is no better feeling than defeating the Moon Lord with a fish costume. - ClovertheAverageCat

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

Skins : awesome
Skins + armour : what
luckily clothier sold familiar clothes

18 Terraria has more items

Try and get the rod of discord before saying you got everything. Did I mention the extra 150+ items? Also, did I mention Minecraft has 10-50 items? - Theco

Fun facts that in mobile version after you made a world you eill get 0-6 dirt ( try it if you don't believe me )


Terraria is STUPID

19 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


So u want Minecraft skins, that can be realistic to the the point where u can wear a hoodie and get a foam Minecraft sword from the toilet store, or do u want color filled masterpieces of armor that is like no other. I mean seriously, if u don't believe me talk to your theripist about the situation.

Character customization is limited in Terraria. Armor is EXTREMELY limited in Minecrap - Theco

20 Better boss battles

Just because its in 3D doesn't mean its way better. And wall of flesh actually takes strategy, like if you do not prepare for the wall of flesh by bringing health potions and clearing a big path, you will die instantaneously.

Minecrafts boss battles are great ideas the only problem is that THE BOSS FIGHT SUCKS. The ender dragon is not hard or fun at all all you do is wait for it to come and spam click it that's it it's like a game of spamming a button -_-. Now Terraria boss fights are also great ideas but the boss fights ARE ACTUALLY FUN even the 1st boss fight is more fun the Minecrafts bosses COMBINED now hate Minecraft fans.

Sounds arnet better in boss battles in Minecraft terraria even has its own bos music Minecraft is just boring piano

I personally perfer 2D boss battles WAY more than 3D ones. Not saying BotW's were bad - Charmedyeti
