    posted a message on The Mojang Team Should Play Terraria
    Ever since I got into playing Terraria awhile ago when the 1.2 update came out for it, I've felt like Minecraft has less of a purpose and I really can't see any other way of playing the game other than building stuff. I wish there was more to it than that because even the exploration and mining all seems like a means to an end, and that end is building artificial structures that don't really serve a purpose other than looking pretty.

    Sure it's satisfying to dedicate yourself to a build and watch it form, but whereas in Terraria, there is a logical and addicting progression to things that give the game focus and playability. In Terraria there are bosses to conquer, difficult areas and enemies to overcome, and incredibly cool items and loot to obtain that enrich the experience and feel genuinely rewarding to obtain (wings that let you fly, magical weapons with various effects, and accessories that let you climb walls, double jump, or grapple with a hook onto surfaces).

    I know Minecraft is about freedom and all, but I really wish it didn't require you to make your own fun; at least give us an option that is more fun than reaching The End. The game also desperately needs at least an item, armor, etc. that makes vertical travel quicker and more fun than just making block stairs. When I finally got a grappling hook in Terraria, it felt like Christmas morning.

    Here's a few suggestions that I feel could make Minecraft better while preserving its spirit:

    1. Strata: Make the world deeper and add layers to the earth; adding more difficult enemies and unique cave terrain at deeper layers.

    2. Bosses: Add more bosses to the game that drop rare and valuable items when slain. You could summon them, or they could come after you when certain conditions are met.

    3. Accessories: Terraria has a catalogue of awesome and interesting accessories that enrich the gameplay experience and make it feel different. A grappling hook for hooking to surfaces and travelling vertically, wings for limited flight, boots and claws for climbing walls, and various other things that make things less of a hassle and more fun once obtained.

    Very excellent update Mojang. It makes the world of Minecraft far more robust and explorable. Yet, ever since I got into playing Terraria awhile ago when the 1.2 update came out for it, I've felt like Minecraft has less of a purpose and I really can't see any other way of playing the game other than building stuff. I wish there was more to it than that because even the exploration and mining all seems like a means to an end, and that end is building artificial structures that don't really serve a purpose other than looking pretty.
