So a while ago I heard of this game called minecraft seemed pretty interesting so I downloaded it and I was not disappointed it was so simple yet so awesome so later in the coming days I heard of a new game that was called terraria they said the game was inspired by minecraft and that it was a good game so I decided to check what all the fuss was about I downloaded it and quiet frankly the game is very confusing to me. Now some people say that terraria is a great game and that its simply amazing and that might be true but let me tell you some thing its not, ORIGINAL. If all games were really similar then the whole concept of gaming would change.This game is mostly the same as minecraft they have taken the bare idea of minecraft and presented it to people as a new game, but I think that they took the idea minecraft made a game and added so much useless stuff that it gets so confusing that your mind gets blown just trying to figure it out. You might think I’m exaggerating let me give you a list of “JUST” the monsters in minecraft and the monsters in terraria.
Now compare your self which one do you think is more simple and if you think that being simple is bad and that terraria is “fun” because of its complexity then I have a question for you why is the game 2D? If they wanted to make such a complex game then why didn’t they focus on graphics?
Terraria would have been an amazing game if it had not been 2D if it had the graphics of a game like metal gear solid of something like that it would have been an amazing game but I think putting so much stuff into the game while its 2D isn’t going to make sense compare out of the two which one do you think looks better.

Minecraft looks like it might be hard and terraria looks like a game for small children but they are the exact opposite. Both of these games are really interesting but I’m going to side with Minecraft on this well because they thought of it first it. I can sit here and argue for hours on how they aren’t similar or how much they are but at the end of the day its all about an idea which notch stole first from Infiniminer.
