Would I get more hours out of this game then Terraria?

I mean, it depends, Terraria is more of a boss rush sandbox, while DST is a survival sandbox, so youll likely get more hours if you enjoy it more, as both have around the same hours of content

I find progression in DST to be a lot slower than Terraria, so I personally have more hours in DST. Terraria has one main focus which is combat, where DST has combat and survival. In terraria you don't have to worry about starvation so you don't have to spend time to make a food farm on top of getting the next tier of weapons and armor. 

That being said both great games

This is like asking "Would I love chocolate over cake"... we'll at least need some sense of your tastes and preferences before we can help you with it.

 

In other news, chocolate is ALWAYS better than cake ;-)

Or no? :)

This is easily my most played game on my Xbox so I would safely say yeah? But it really depends on what you enjoy playing- I love don’t starve & don’t starve together, but they arent everyone’s cup of tea- these can be some brutal and unforgiving games, you will die and you will die often... but that’s just part of learning so you get better to (maybe not die?)

P.S. I still die anyway, so hours played = nothing :lol:

I've been playing both darkest dungeon and Griftlands over Don't starve together more than recently. I'll probably return back to dst when I get the chance to do things but those two are pretty shorter in runs(telling me when to quit).

I've got double the amount of hours I do in DST to Terraria. So you could definitely get a lot of hours into the game if you really enjoy it. Although, even though the two are sandbox games, they're still fairly different in progression and such. Terraria is much more combat focused, and DST is much more focused on survival (although combat does play a role in that, but terraria does it better imo.)

For me personally Terraria is a lot more of a short burst while DST is more long-term. I remember when I first got Terraria I played upwards of like 12 hours a day for a week or two (don't judge me :lol:) while DST I find myself hanging out on my worlds a lot longer. So i'd say DST, but yeah I am probably quite biased lol.

I don't think so. Terraria is a game based on crafting. You craft things to craft more things and it have so much content which the best part of it. Terraria is winner in content and replayability.

Don't Starve have an awesome atmosphere and art style. It's based on surviving, not killing bosses. Content is not much as terraria but it's better and more detailed.

They are pretty different games but you will waste your time so much if you like it.

I haven't played Terraia, but if you enjoy the base building aspect of this game then my vote would be on DST. I platinumed the game years ago, and still can't put it down. There's always a new build project I get interested in.

If you play all the classes in terraria then terraria is probably more replayable, in addition to all the good mods that completely change the progression of the game. DST progression is a lot less varied than terraria's progression IMO

There's no microtransactions in terraria either, which automatically makes it better imo. All the cosmetics you can get are in-game. :D

Not to mention, terraria has much, much more content and with the added bonus of none of this "you have to be online to get the skins you paid for" nonsense that this game is fond of. You will always have access to Terraria even if you have internet outages.

There's also not as much lag because it doesn't force you to make a server + caves.

I personally like Don't Starve Together's progression system, it's a lot slower than Terraria's but more satisfying, but that's just my personal preference.

I highly doubt it. Don't Starve Together gets insanely repetitive, and even when you get tired of all the Terraria bosses & builds/items, there are mods that add tons of more high quality content. Both great games though.

Mod argument applies to both games.

To be fair though, Terrarias have a lot more expansive giant DLC sized mods. I have yet to see anything thatd be like a Calamity mod equivalent in DSTs workshop.

Yeah, compared to Terraria this game has nearly no mods. If there were a ton of mods that each added as much content as there already is in the entire base game + RoG + ANR + RoT the mod situation would be more comparable. Most of the mods on the Workshop just add a single character or something while it's commonplace for Terraria mods to add hundreds or even thousands of things to the game.

incredibly easily

I notice you're making a forum post about your playtime while the game has "STOP" instead of "PLAY". Intriguing...
