Minecraft vs terraria
After mining for hours and hours to get that diamond I heard everyone talking about I was fizzled, I didn’t see what everyone saw was so cool about minecraft, but when they came out with creative mode I figured it out, the fun was in building! And it wasn’t in digging, or at least that’s how I saw it. Well I can say minecraft doesn’t have much to offer accept building, which honestly when you don’t have big epic dreams of a star destroyer flying above your world you don’t have much to build… I played minecraft for many many hours and tried and tried to find what people saw in it but I couldn’t see it, and than one day it hit me, it wasn’t building it was building with other people! I was sure that had to be it, but sadly not knowing anyone with the game I couldn’t test my theory, and my enthusiasm for minecraft died a final time.
When I first started my world in Terraria I was a tad perplexed, what was… this guy doing here, minecraft didn’t have people! I talked to him and learned a few things but after a scant moment I was on my way chopping trees and killing slimes, and I felt it, what everyone had said in minecraft that wonder and amazement, and best of all I didn’t drop everything when I died! No matter how many times I died as I dug deeper my enthusiasm couldn’t be squelched, I loved every minute of it. Than I heard rumors about a dungeon and decided to venture that way, as I went on my long journey, long as it was because I chose the largest world, I fought through slimes, zombies, and floating eyes, but when I finally made it those sparkling blue bricks looked amazing, sadly my first encounter with skele<<< ummm whats his face (-_-) did not go well I was batted around by long skeletal hands until the moment my head popped off and went rolling down a hole. But still I went on excited, I dug even deeper and got more gear, deeper and deeper so deep in fact I hit the underworld! I know it seems like a bad idea to go there before the dungeon but that’s where I was and so I killed and fought my way to the nearest chest, in it I found Sun fury! After I finally died in lava I returned to the dungeon and bashed skele--uhh that dude, face in. after that I retired from the game for a time, and have only just returned with the latest patch, I beat the wall of flesh quickly, but a unicorn still manages to skewer me.
My conclusion is that Terraria is a far better game even if its only in 2d, minecraft might be a bit more fun with more people, but I havent had the pleasure of experiancing that, plus Terraria has multiplayer to! And with the way they seem to be going it wont be long before it’s a full RPG, with all the elements of races and classes, which will be amazing!
