Terraria. I bought the game a while back and I’m still struggling to get it. Yes, it’s like Minecraft, but only in the same way Bad Company 2 is a shooter like Black Ops is a shooter. They’re very different games.

I think perhaps my lack of interest is due to a lack of time to invest in the game mining for minerals and learning what to make. 99% of my gaming is done after 9pm, by which time I’m generally exhausted. How’s about you? Has Terraria grabbed you by the proverbial goolies and won’t let go or did you just walk on by?

Regardless, here’s some reading for you: the getting started page on the Terraria wiki and a beginners guide from PC Gamer.
