Lots of people argue about which is better, Minecraft or Roblox.
This is my opinion about this subject and my ratings on the two games.
(Don't hate me for my opinion, just post in the comments your opinion)

I can't fix the writing format, sorry :( It'll revert back to this.

Roblox
A game made for people that like building projects and game that don't have enough money to buy programming tools or don't have time to get a tutor in programming. [Based on Legos]

Minecraft

Sandbox-voxel based-indie game made for people with creativity (until the adventure update) and don't know how to or don't want to program everything into a game. [Based on other voxel games]

Differences
Graphics- Minecraft has simple 16x16 graphics (without texture packs) so it can run fast on mostcomputers.
Roblox has 1 color for each brick (block) in it. Runs very fast.
Edibility- Minecraft can be modded, it's textures can be changed, and a whole lot more. Basically,every thing can be edited in Minecraft.
Roblox can't be modified except for your character to my knowledge. (Making games and making things in games don't count)
In-game Creation- You can create almost anything in Minecraft with some limitations.
Roblox, you can make almost anything if you know how to use Java.
Gameplay- Minecraft is survival or creation, plenty to explore and create, has a fast paced andstrategy filled gameplay. It's good if you like creating games and fighting monsters.
Roblox is based on what the creator of the game wants it to be.
Community- Minecraft has multiple websites where creations are shared and most of them areoriginalcreations.(Creations, not designs) Lots of different people and different stylesof creations.
Roblox has a lot of unoriginal maps (Ex: Call of Robloxia, Survival Disaster, BaseWars)and there are a LOT of kids just saying "noob," "yolo," and "swag." Lots ofpeople that tryto date others based on there character too.
Overall Rating
Minecraft
9/10
Good for people that like creating games and adventure but has some limitations.
Roblox

6.5/10
Great for creating games but has a bunch of children and you can end upspendinga lotof money editing your character and buying special privileges.

What's your opinion on these games, leave it in the comments below.
Note: I won't read or reply to extremely long paragraphs.

Also for Roblox, the reason why they only celebrate American events is because it is an American game. If you took a poll, most people on roblox would be American. Because Minecraft is Swedish, you have a bigger European player percentage.

@Steven295695 That is true, but ROBLOX has nothing to do with Lego. Minecraft is better in some cases. For instance, Minecraft is boring without friends, it is all based on your train of thought, and why would anyone want to be fiddling with blocks? ROBLOX has all these noobs, but when you get around it it is pretty much a fun game. Once again, your reason is true. Every person always says, "ill reportz u becuz u kild me >:O" But besides that, it is a fun game. Like Minecraft, ROBLOX is based on your train of thought. The building on ROBLOX is harder, Minecraft makes it easy. Both of the games set a main target to make the game a fun game. @[]Levi08[] I also agree with you. You talked about the bright sides about ROBLOX. I truly cannot choose what game is better. ROBLOX is full of noobs and random adults. Minecraft is full of little kids crying and teenagers being creative. So, it will take me a while to decide.

ROBLOX sucks. There's a lot of reasons why.Oh boy, hang on to your seats: Immature community (omg i wil reprot u becuz u kiled me), filled with idiots (evidence a few words behind), you HAVE TO PAY FOR ANYTHING (you have to buy BC to make a freaking shirt or some pants), they all think they are cool by using image macros, poor moderation (go to Off-Topic.I DARE YOU TO.)

Lemme catch a breath...alright, here we go again: hackers and exploiters everywhere, graphics are bland as hell (A brick: just a colored brick. They removed the "studs"), places are less than decent, you can't do anything to modify it except some "decals" and finally, to top it off, it's all about AMERICA. They only celebrate AMERICAN events, like Christmas, Halloween, and Thanksgiving. What about other countries? Do you care about them at all?

A few things, first of all Roblox does not have solid colour textures. It has any amount of textures depending on how much effort the creator puts into it, I've seen maps with a lot of texture. You cannot create "almost anything" in Minecraft. They are a lot of limitations due to block size, it having cuboids (and slabs) to use as well, whereas in Roblox you can you triangular prism, you can use a lot more things as it is not strictly stuck to using cuboids. Also Minecraft is not strategic, unless you are playing some sort of custom map or you are leading a big well organised faction, it is not strategic. Try playing a game like Sid Meir's Civilization and then say Minecraft is strategic.

Overall it is decent, although I would have liked you to compare with screenshots, noted dynamic shaders in Roblox, have video of them, show off some things you find attractive and repulsive by both. The more content (that is relevant) in the blog, the much more in depth you can go.

Thank you for the suggestions, I'll try to do some of these things if I make another blog.
Just to clear some things up:
  • [size=10pt]When I said Minecraft is strategic, I meant like when you are fighting bosses like the Ender Dragon where you have to plan a way to defeat him or you would just get knocked off and die if you just rushed in without any idea of what you're doing. :P[/size]
  • I haven seen more than one color on most bricks (not counting pictures) in Roblox, so thanks for telling me this.
  • First blog, I made lots of mistakes.

If I sound like I'm getting smart, I don't try to, it's the way my mind replies to answers that I haven't explained well enough.

Seeing as it is your first blog its pretty neat, try going further into it, but personally I don't find things like fighting the ender dragon strategic, just like boss battles in many other games it is just planning ahead, but that is just me and I find it hard to classify a game as strategy unless it is a strategic game where thinking ahead is the only way to play.

But glad to see you are an open minded writer, it is hard to find someone who is good at writing and can accept another person's opinion. Keep up the good work.

Also, Roblox is super, insanely laggy, and there are no good original games. Unlike Minecraft that has things like Supper Craft Bros., mods, and everything you could think of, also there is a basic layer of Minecraft under all of the fancy building, and coding. Whereas Roblox is just a physics engine.

i personally feel like roblox is aimed more towards a younger audience. Not to say that minecraft doesn't have a younger audience but minecraft has a majority of its community 14 or over. Also, i feel like roblox was a much harder to use system, I remember playing it when I was younger, i was always confused on how to use the building tools, compared to minecraft's building system, which is as straight forward as right clicking. One last thing, I agree with you that roblox has a horrible community, compared to minecraft which is a lot better.
