Old Roblox player: “Roblox has been through many changes past its time. I have played for about 6 years and I remember when we had old maps and two types of currency. Roblox was hacked once that basically broke the site itself.The things I love about roblox would be creating and scripting my own games I’ve made and I love to play many types of games. I think Roblox is a great game because it’s fun and enjoyable but it has its risk of playing with hackers or having game bugs.”
New Roblox Player: “I’ve played roblox for about 2-3 years. I don’t do much besides play games. I love to play games like Adopt Me and Royal Highschool. My favorite thing is roleplay games. I think Roblox is a great game because it’s child friendly.”
