Terraria is best enjoyed at a 1280x720 resolution, anything higher makes the sprites way too small. A higher resolution isn't always better. (Of course this can also depend the size of your monitor and the distance at which you sit from the monitor.)

I'm an avid player of terraria on 2560x1080 resolution. Native monitor size is always the most natural-looking for a game played in fullscreen. That's kind of the intention.

I generally like to have my games at the native resolution as well. Terraria and older games where the HUD doesn't scale are exceptions. Take this image of Hitman: Codename 47 in 4k for example:

Look at how small that HUD is in 4k! Personally I believe options for Codename 47 in this case to have it set at 720p and turn on supersampling to smooth out the jagged edges so it looks more like this:

That game looks like it was designed before developers anticipated people to get bigger screens. Terraria looks really good in 2K.

I think most RPG games* based off the legendary Dragon Ball Z anime shouldn't ever been a thing!

Prepare to be more pissed off than the freaking Angry Birds at me for saying this in a Mario-theme PG-13 forums:

SEGA's puzzle game, Puyo Puyo, is better than Dr. Mario because it has 90's anime-like GFXs!!!! FIGHT ME

Did I ever, in the history of this SMBX forums topic, say that the SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis game, Mega Man The Wily Wars, is the best port of the original Mega Man games? Despite me never getting any better at it's 16-bit port?
