Finally, I’ve got the opportunity to compare these two undoubtedly great games: Minecraft and Terraria. Although I have already been playing Minecraft for a relatively long time and I like this game, I still can’t say that it is better or somehow equal to Terraria. I just can’t. At least, because of Terraria being represented as a usual 2D platformer game with many different funny items and monsters, while Minecraft is some kind of an exploration simulator, in my opinion.
There are practically no friendly NPC’s, no numerous enemies, mobs or minions, etc. If you don’t play with friends, Minecraft is going to get you bored in a couple of days. Yes, Minecraft receives updates more often than Terraria, but they seem to me as something that worsens the game, as if the developers want to make the gameplay duller and slower.
Plus, there are many cheaters and generally toxic people on servers, and that scares me. Of course, this kind of players is mainly represented by school pupils and brainless children. While in Terraria, you can transfer the fully geared-up character with all its items in the inventory to the multiplayer server, in Minecraft you need to start it all from “zero”. And it is good if the server is playable, without the admins who are only traders. That’s not rare for those traders to offer some gameplay improvement items for donation nowadays.
