Minecraft was such an awesome idea (I know it's not the first of such games, but it's the first I saw) that I had to buy it, but after 2 weeks I had my fill and returned to more challenging games.
Now I see this new game called Terraria and it looks interesting, very similar to Minecraft but looks to offer a more refined experience and probably more challenging. I say "more refined" mainly because I'm guessing you can at least play Terraria without using a Wiki. In Minecraft if you just start to play, you'll probably end up digging rocks out with your hands and never learn to make even a work bench.
The Minecraft community seemed filled with little kids, not too intelligent. It only takes a few, once 10% of the community is incapable of making posts longer than a sentence, any worth while discussion gets pushed aside. Especially in contrast to communities like Arcen has built. Hopefully Terraria doesn't suffer from the same inept community, but it's not looking good from my initial peruse of their forum.
Any one played this game? What did you think?
