Opinion: Minecraft is Better Than ROBLOX

We’re all familiar with the two popular games Minecraft and ROBLOX. Most of us have played at least one of those two games. Some of us prefer Minecraft, and others prefer ROBLOX. In my opinion, between the two games, Minecraft is way better compared to ROBLOX. It’s not just because of reasons such as, “Minecraft has cool servers and stuff.” It’s also because of safety reasons and so on. Let me give you reasons why I think people should play Minecraft instead of ROBLOX.
I first got ROBLOX about a couple of years ago. I only got it because lots of people have been playing it, and it’s gotten popular within the gaming world. I wanted to try it out and see why so many people were obsessed with it. After downloading the app and logging in, I was ready to play. I got really disappointed when I learned that I couldn’t customize my avatar without having to pay. There’s the first reason. In ROBLOX, in order to get cool avatar clothing or gear, you need Robux (the currency in ROBLOX), and in order to get Robux, you need to pay. To be honest, I’m the type of person who wastes money on games. So, knowing that I couldn’t customize my avatar because I couldn’t purchase Robux got me really upset.
On the other hand, you don’t need to pay in Minecraft just to get a cool skin! There are a variety of free apps just for Minecraft skins, and they all contain an infinite amount of skins. You just need to look up a skin of your choice, import it, and you have your own skin! It’s as simple as that.
In ROBLOX, once you join a minigame, you get exposed to random online people. This risks your chances of being exposed to inappropriate topics. When I used to play ROBLOX, no matter what game I joined, there was always that one person who would swear all the time, and even worse. You also get cyber bullied a lot on ROBLOX. In Minecraft, most people are nothing like that. According to me and other people, there are only a couple of people who aren’t as good, but that’s it!
Lastly, you can only play on games that other people made unless you PAY to make your own game. Meanwhile, you can make an infinite number of your own worlds in Minecraft without paying! You can also invite any of your friends to that world.
In conclusion, Minecraft is best preferred for various reasons. I honestly think that ROBLOX requires you to constantly pay money. Minecraft is safer and much more fun.
