Top Ten Reasons Why Terraria Is Better Than Minecraft


The Contenders: Page 2

21 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.

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

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.

Terraria has millions of bosses and minecraft only has wither and enderdragon which is 2 bosses

Terraria also has awesome music for each boss
Minecraft has boring over world music which is just boring piano

Terraria has 2d worlds to fight in which makes it harder and can go through blocks

Minecraft has huge 3d worlds so the noobs can hide in their house while it's in front of their door until they blow it up and they die

22 Cooler 'creepers'

You may not remember these - the things that fly around the brain of Cthulhu? They are actually creepy and don't make you rage when on Minecraft the creepers just look plain weird and just ruin your house, and you life

23 It's 2-D

I get motion sick from Minecraft

So for all the triggered peeps, you saying sonic 06 is better than sonic 1? NO

Since it's 2D, you can see the danger a mile away

2D is sucky

24 Better mechanics

Even though Minecraft has got command blocks (which takes forever to learn how to use). Terraria's mechanics are simple I have made myself a mechanism which teleports me away from boss' attacks.

Its awesome with mechs seriosly statues that spawn items/enemies
Does Minecraft have that in survival nope so they're a dope

25 It's going to be part of a trilogy with Terraria Otherworld and Terraria 2

What would be cool is if they had after moon lord is defeated a portal opens and you go to different world and u can go back and forth and the cycle starts again with a ton more items

26 More of a challenge

The only challenge in Minecraft is to not get blown up by a walking penis

Minecraft has no real challenge, since terraria has a challenge it just makes the game more fun


27 Easy to Navigate

I agree! I lost my house so many times on Minecraft but on terraria I never lost it

Minecraft is supposedly 'infinite' (which it isn't just HUGE), and being 3d makes it almost impossible to navigate and safely get home without being killed or lost. On Terraria you only have to worry about how far your house is and how deep you are!

I hate it when you lose a house in Minecraft

Lol if you lost in terraria then you r a noob just use magic mirror

28 The Ores and Armor

Minecraft's ores consist of coal, emerald, gold, iron, redstone, quartz, and diamond... they are all "easy" to find and are often useless. Terraria has plenty of ores (I believe twenty plus? ) starting from copper to chlorophyte! - KennyRulz244444

MC no mods ore= BARELY Terraria no mods= A TON; kill WOF, 4+ more ores! Minecraft has crappy armor while terraria has more than 10 sets of armor!

29 There's always something to do

There are always huge updates which contain new bosses and stronger weapons. Minecraft adds new blocks. Minecraft needs mods to be good.

Terraria is more creative with building, and as one user stated, with every update comes new content such as bosses, bug fixes, and more weapons and tools. Minecraft just adds more boring blocks and often pointless crap that doesn't get you anywhere. - KennyRulz244444

Terraria? No. Minecraft? Yes.

30 Actual Classes of Weapons

Terraria: Hey I'm doing a Mage play through and I hope I get the Mage emblem when I defeat the wall of flesh so I get stronger water bolts so I can keep killing it until I get the sword my friend wants! I also want armour that gives my magic power a boost and by mana amount increase!

Minecraft: ehh I have a bow...not much else with archery tiers...meh..

31 Retro Graphics Styling

Playing Terraria makes you feel like you're playing a classic retro video game, even thought it's modern and is always adding new features and updates

To the comment below:
My dad (who was born in the 1960's) said that Terraria looked like a game from the 80's.
Just some cool info I thought I'd share...

Terraria looks like an early-to-mid 90s game for a Super Nintendo compared to Minecraft which looks like any ordinary 3D game. - KennyRulz244444

32 Actually organized servers

I joined a server and they kicked me because they didint like that I got more stuff so they kicked me and in terraria when no one asks for stuff I give them not hey give me that

No trolls. No griefers. No idiots trying to deafen you via mic. No children who beg for items and higher ranks. No children who accuse you of being a "n00b" or "[email protected]" after winning a fight. No hackers in every nook and cranny. No annoying players who spawn millions of monsters inside your base. No traps everywhere. Need I say more?

33 More fun

Terraria makes me get imaginative, creative and violent. Those always make me act like an idiot and it is always funny! Terraria for the win!

Terraria is stupid people who like it are dicks

Terraria: Awesome Single player,Great mods(Terraria mods are like a free dlc) Good multiplayer has spleef, has mount races,and more Nice people (Minecraft has 5 year olds who call you a hacker for killing them).

In terraria,you got more creative stuff,you got enemies like mimics,zombies,skeletons,rune wizards... you got RAINBOW SLIMES! Plus terraria is more like a tale rather than a realistic world,you got the evil corruption,you got bloody,gored crimson,you got nice hallow with unicorns and fairys,you got desert,you got caverns,and even underworld/hell! Making it more of a evil than nice world and,of course,less squeakers!

34 Awesome bosses

The Wither would stand no chance against The destroyer. He would just get ripped apart in like, two seconds

Less he wouldn't even want to spawn haha

Bosses like WoF and the moon lord (and like 15 more) obviously beat The Ender dragon Wither, and The elder gaurdian.

35 It's cheaper

Minecraft costs 29.99$ whereas Terraria costs 5.99$

Especially on steam when there is a sale

Yes and terraria you get your moneys worth big time

Minecraft isn't worth your money, it was 17.95 when I bought it. Terraria is 3.99/5.99 and has much more content. - KennyRulz244444

36 More fantasy based

Yeah! Kids are loosing out on not being more connected with fantasy and sci fi!

37 Way more pets

You can get a lot of pets I got a elf a mini skeleton head and a cupid

Pets are so cute

Hey, at least your pets don't die in Terraria. - astroshark

Minecraft u get a wolf but u can't call it back if its annoying you

38 Terraria has music and sounds for each biome

Every biome has a unique tune Minecraft doesn't have that

39 NPCs that actually do useful things

Squidward-like NPCs do nothing but trade rare gems for crappy items, human/creature-like NPCs sell useful items and are often helpful with other things. - KennyRulz244444

Npc's in Minecraft: hey give me a rare gem and I will give you a piece of leather.
they also do not speak and there is no big loss if they die. (they also look alike)

Npc's in terraria: can speak, all look different, losing them give you a temporary disadvantage as you lose their service, tons of health, can defend themselves, have personalities, respawn, have to be unlocked, gives you items that are ACTUALLY USEFUL AND ACTUALLY WORK. some require it to be a certain time of the year. give you a fair amount of money if you sell things to them.
