I was introduced to Terraria by my brother who was introduced to Terraria by his friend. we had so much fun playing for the first time (also the old mobile dim light in dark areas pls bring that feature back)
my favorite thing about the game is beating the bosses and progressing in general

I started playing terraria because I saw a youtuber playing it and it seemed cool. I play since 2017. My favorite thing about the game is exploring the underground.
 
I think it was a Let's Play, YouTuber by the name of PaperBat VG.

Honestly, I'm still not sure exactly why I chose Terraria over Minecraft (two of the games he often played), because I still remember the Aether Mod being the reason I was gonna finally buy/ download Minecraft, as... it was cool and everything, but not necessarily the type of game I'd personally enjoy playing myself, until I saw that particular Mod of course. 🤔🥤

I wanna say that, maybe it was because Terraria was a familiar formula to the style of games I already enjoyed (Kirby: Superstars, Super Ghosts 'n Goblins, Super Mario World, Castlevania)?? I hate that this memory draws a blank for me, because I'm sure I still didn't like Terraria's art style around that time, as the sun still had a smiley face... I think?

There was also like... this Starbound vs. Terraria beef that my brother was heavily into, so it could've easily been him as well who introduced me (or made me aware if Terraria's existence), as I'm 1000% sure he's the one who taught me how to set my controls by manipulating ini/ cmd files or whatever...

It was a lot going on, especially me getting into indie games. I don't wanna go on and on, but here's the boxes games like Terraria checked for me, seeing as how times were a LOT different back then.
  1. AAA games and their companies/ developers were really screwing their audience in many ways at the time (i.e. Capcom).
  2. Also, around that time, I was looking to start dating "gamer girls" and Terraria seemed like a unisex game (I know it sounds pretty dated, but I was mostly an FGC guy so... yeah). 😏 🤷‍♂️
  3. There was a LOT of pseudo protesting and boycotts happening around this time as well concerning AAA companies, so looking for more indie titles tended to be a concerted effort on the part of "real protesters", like myself.
I really don't know exactly, I wanna chalk it up to being a perfect storm-type situation, but the only thing I'm the most sure about is that PBat convinced me to buy the game... somehow... I think, or maybe it was my brother??

my nephew first introduced it to me back in the earliest release of it... didn't see much of it, but it stuck in my mind until i came across it on the PS store.

that was quite a surprise, cause i wasn't even aware it was coming to console.

of course, there was also totalbiscuit and jesse cox's playthrough of it... endlessly re-watchable, and quite funny.

favorite thing... not entirely sure i can decide on just one thing.

i guess just the fact that it has such passionate developers willing to go so far to make it enjoyable in so many ways. :dryadhappy:

My MOTHER, of all people, was the one who introduced it to me on the day it came out.
My favorite thing about Terraria is the fact that even though the updates are few, ALL the updates have quality.
As for my mother's her favorite thing is the fact that, unlike most video games, NPCs can fight back.

If I recall, it was seeing videos of it from a group of high school friends. Terraria 1st came out during my final year of high school. And yes, my 1st impression of it was that it was "2D Minecraft". It caught my interest at the time and it looked fun, but I didn't buy it yet.

Later it was gifted to me by another friend and I started with 1.1. I didn't get super into it at first, but then at a slightly later time another group of friends wanted to play it, so I played with them and from there I got heavily absorbed into the game, researched everything about it through the wiki. And from there played a lot to where its one of my most heavily played games of all time. Followed every update since then to this day.

My favorite thing about Terraria, has to be the sheer amount of items you can obtain, along with how visually exciting all the biomes of the game look with the enemies and blocks within. The sensation of mining to craft and upgrade new equipment and weapons along with occasionally getting cool items from defeating difficult enemies and bosses never fails to get me excited. The way the Corruption and Crimson works is also something I enjoy that is hard to get from a lot of other games. The idea of a dark environment acting as an invasive force that corrupts everything around it overtime.

I... actually forgot. But, the first Terraria channel I've watched is Chippygaming. I've watched him before he even made his second channel, and that's really long ago. So yeah, I don't remember.
Also, I think I knew about Terraria about the time when Minecraft was falling in popularity, so that could be a factor. But I don't think that's the reason how I knew of this game.
But whatever made me know Terraria, thank you, you've given the best prize ever.
