Roblox is a bad game and is actual trash. Yes, Children love Roblox, The blocky lego characters, But that's what Roblox is showing to the children. Behind the scenes, Roblox is shady and is a garbage dump.

How is Roblox "a bad game and ["] actual trash. Where are your sources? Roblox is simply a program for the purpose of entertaining and is somewhat preparing kids for society. Think about it, Kids decide to spend their hard earned money on something they really want. This is somewhat how society works. You proved that children love Roblox, But how is that bad? That just means Roblox is doing its job correctly.

I have yet another question for you: how is Roblox shady and a dump from behind the scenes? Is it a place for illegal trading, Or hacking. Sure, Some people got hacked, But most games are like that. Even people from Debate. Org get hacked. Hacking is not a rare thing. I'm not supporting hacking (don't get the wrong idea), I mean it's still bad, But how can you classify a normal game as trash and garbage?

To answer your question, To "how is Roblox shady", First, You don't mention the child predators and online daters. There are tons of online daters, Scammers, And child predators on Roblox. If you don't believe me, Search up "roblox uncanny valley", Its the spawning area of online daters.

You say that "Kids decide to spend their hard earned money on something they really want. " do they really "earn" that money? " https://www. Reddit. Com/r/roblox/comments/5ho6si/6_year_old_son_just_purchased_200_dollars_of/ " is a great example of kids using their parent's money to purchase an insane amount of "Robux".

The main marketing strategy of Roblox is that you can make your own games. That's correct, You CAN make your own games, But to actually make one takes a lot of training. Roblox uses "LUA" to power their games, It's completely different from other languages because LUA can only be used in Roblox. Yes, Kids are happy, But Roblox the actual game is a rotten horseradish.

There are thousands of scammers, Daters, And child predators out there. It's almost impossible for games to stop these people from coming. It's just not Roblox's fault. All games have these people who just wish to torment and annoy these little kids. Plus, Most people aren't criminals. The FBI clearly states that 29. 5% of adults have a criminal record. Roblox is just a normal game considering all these things.

You also mentioned that LUA is used in Roblox creating. LUA has been used in Amazon Games, SimCity, Autodesk Stingray, And more. On "https://www. Quora. Com/What-is-Lua-used-for" and engineer from Corona Labs stated "Lua is scripting language that supports every kind of programming like procedural programming, Object-oriented programming, Functional programming, Data-driven programming, And data description. Lua is used in many frameworks, Many platforms even built with Lua. " Most programming languages take a lot of training too, I don't understand how that's bad.

Lua is used in some games, Sure, But the possibilities are very little, If you're going to learn a programming language, You're better off using all that time learning C# or Java.

Yes, I agree that there are thousands of online daters, Child predators, And scammers and no game can prevent them, But the thing that really shows why Roblox moderation is trash, Is that they focus on many minor things instead of preventing online dating, Etc. First, Instead of banning online daters, Etc, They spend their updating the picture of their website and writing forums about banning memes, Etc. Second, The report system is very, Very slow. Getting banned usually takes weeks after the initial offense.

Then there is the removal of popular features. First, Tickets, The only currency kids could gain for free without cashing out $10 to get a virtual bucket. Second, Forums and comments, The place where players know what they're playing.
Lastly, The front page, Now just replaced with staff preferences.

Even though LUA is only used in some games, It's still very useful. You could spend your time with Java, C+, And LUA. There are many languages a programmer needs to use and LUA can be very useful. The problem with banning all predators, Is that they don't know who the predators are. The predators can create multiple accounts, And keep on joining. It's not that easy. The report system is very slow on all games. You need to report, Then it contacts a moderator, Who is basically programming something else. By the time the moderator receives the message, They need to code something to remove the user, That takes weeks.
If Roblox made everything for free, That wouldn't make a profit, Therefore causing the whole game to be taken down. It takes a lot to code something that big and hard. So you wouldn't even be playing the game. Every game has in app purchases that help it to create better environments. Forums and the front page weren't even taken down, Search it up.
Roblox is a normal game.

@Kvng_8 Jesus, It's a meme, It's a funny internet joke. Go commit read the rest of the comments.
Stop making a huge deal out of it, There's a reason it's not "Go kill yourself" and it's "go commit not alive".
If you want to see some examples, Google "roblox grammar memes" you'll see why it's just a joke.

Wow, Telling people to commit not alive (basically commit suicide) isn't funny. . . No wonder you see suicide as a joke

Become part of the corporation. I repeat do not try to finish the stuff in the museum. It takes too f*cking long. At the end of it you would be glad it was over. I don't want you to experience what I did or maybe try to finish the museum or I think it is the recreation centre and stop when you don't like it anymore.

Haven't played FTL but heard it is really difficult. I think it is still worth trying.

Hey. The memes are funny.

It is basically children being so isolated that they have created their own version of English in Roblox. It is really fascinating to watch the memes because why would I play Roblox when Minecraft is better?
