    A Guide to Having Fun on Roblox

    As someone who has been playing Roblox since 2011, I'm going to give a brief walk through of the main page and show how ANYONE can find something fun on the site!


    Hello! If you're first starting Roblox, and your first impression is from memes, then it'll be really difficult to get into it. This is amplified if you just play the first game you see on the main page. In this article, I'll be giving you steps and tips on how to find genuinely fun games and communities.

    The Games Page


    When you first click 'Games', you'll be shown a page that starts with Popular and Top Rated games. However, the algorithm used to determine if a game is "Popular" or highly rated is just based on current players and overall likes to dislikes ratio. A lot of games will exploit this to get on the main page by having a couple thousand, sometimes up to 100k, bots join the server. They aren't real players, but they add to the "Total Playing" count, so the game will be placed on the main page. This is the same with Top Rated, however, instead of bots playing the game, they're liking it instead.


    This isn't to say that all games on the main page are bad, just keep this in mind when you're wondering how a game where all you do is step on buttons made it to the front page. There are gems sprinkled around the first two sections, so take a look through them once in a while. However, the next section, Featured, tends to be where the best new games are. Featured games are hand-selected by Roblox mods and developers, so more often than not, genuinely good games can be found there. Some are short, physics-based games, but others can be well developed, long, and surprisingly fun.


    Something to consider too is the type of game. The most common games you'll find on the main page are tycoons, obbys, and simulators. This is because a game or two got popular in each of those categories and then a bunch of copies started storming to profit off of the originals. Again, there are still some super fun games of these types, but a majority of them follow the same basis:


    Tycoons: You step on buttons to purchase things, after purchasing the said thing you gain currency to buy more things. The exceptions to this are games like Theme Park Tycoon (1 and 2), Restaurant Tycoon, and Retail Tycoon where the final product isn't premade and you can customize most of the game.


    Obbys: Short for "Obstacle Courses". Most of these are jumping from platform to platform for a couple hours. The ones that are "Escape the ___ Obby" is this but with themed platforms and occasionally a render of the character/object/place you're escaping. The exceptions to this are Flood Escape and Block Hunt, which don't really follow this format but are still listed as "Obbys".


    Simulators: Oh boy. It's hard to pinpoint who started this trend, but after it was made, hundreds of games flooded the main page. On Roblox, "Simulator" does not have the same meaning as most other games. You click to gain and object, sell said object for currency, walk around the map to get more currency and upgrade how fast you gain the original object. Some games put a twist on this though. For example, in Bubble Gum simulator, as you upgrade your bubble, you can jump higher and higher, discovering floating islands with perks and chests. There's also a somewhat addicting pet system. Another great game is Bee Swarm Simulator (not to be biased with my love for bees) in which you collect pollen with your bee friends, convert it into honey, and get more bee friends! There are many side quests and power-ups scattered around the map as well. Not to mention, you can fight hostile bugs, bosses, and a whole game mode to fight against ants. On top of this, there are so many special events. Sprouts will appear, which, once you grow to the max level, will give tons of gifts. When it turns night, glowing bees will come down from the sky and bare presents! You can collect moon charms from them to level up your bees or get an amulet.


    Sorry to go on a tangent, I just really love Bee Swarm Simulator and I recommend giving it a play, just to try!


    Anyways, if you're looking for a GOOD game, generally avoid games that are set up to be a clickbait tycoon, obby, or simulator. Again, some are fun! But if you're looking for something engaging, try something on the Featured list!


    Groups and Communities


    Not all Roblox players are there just for the games, some are more interested in making friends and joining groups. Groups offer a great way to bring people with similar interests together, and a lot can be done with groups.


    Clothing groups: Some people start groups to make clothing brands. This is because groups can sell "Merch", or, in this case, their brand. This is a great way for people interested in the same fashion/style to meet and get to know one another.


    Business groups: A fun way to join a community is through joining a business! Examples of this are cafes, hotels, and restaurants. After joining the group, you go through training, and afterward, you can work on the main server while other players come in as customers.


    Roleplay groups: Every social network has them. If you're into roleplaying, whether that just be through text on the group wall, or in an actual game, there are tons of groups to sift through.


    There are tons of other groups that don't fit into a category, and some groups will have a link to a Discord server where you can connect with someone you met on Roblox.


    Building


    If you don't seem to be having a great time finding a game or community, or you get a creative spark, Roblox is a great place to build and create. Through the Roblox Studio, you can quickly pick up how to create models, and there are tons of tutorials online for coding in LUA. There are even tutorials on how to do specific things for Roblox! Developing a game can be stressful, so it isn't for everyone, but for those interested in coding and building, Roblox is a great place to get started.


    I hope this helped someone who was looking to get into the game! Remember, not all games on Roblox are great and most won't be your cup of tea, but there are some hidden gems! Mine is Bee Swarm Simulator, for others, it's the Labyrinth, some Meep City, a couple for Fashion Famous, and many more. There is such a variety of games that I bet anyone can find something they enjoy!

    “爬行者?”
    “苦力怕?”
    “老兄!”
    “喔,不要提起他好吗!”
    所以回到矿山
    我们进入矿坑
    让我们的镐从一边摇摆到另一边
    拿着十字镐准备挖矿
    左右并排...
    这里挖挖,那里挖挖
    这是一项艰巨的任务,希望今晚,晚上,晚上都能找到钻石。
    有个艰苦的任务-希望今晚能挖到钻石,就是今天晚上
    今晚有钻石...
    钻石之夜〜
    小心
    抬起头
    您听到声音,转身抬头
    你听见声音,转身并抬头
    彻底的震动充满了你的身体
    汗毛竖起,瞳孔放大〜
    哦,不,又是你,我永远不会忘记那些眼睛,眼睛,眼睛
    喔,不!又是那个家伙,我永远都忘不了那双眼睛,那双眼睛,眼睛
    眼睛,眼睛,眼睛...
    那..那双..那双眼睛
    因为今晚宝贝,爬虫正在试图再次偷走我们所有的东西
    宝宝们,因为今晚,苦力怕打算再次偷袭我们
    造成今晚的宝贝,您再次抓住镐,铲子和螺栓,再次螺栓(获得)
    宝宝们,因为今晚,翻箱倒柜还是只有破铜烂铁,破铜烂铁
    然后运行,直到完成,直到太阳在早晨升起。
    跑,再跑,继续跑,直到他停...停下来,直到太阳升起
    因为宝贝,今晚,爬行者试图再次偷走我们所有的东西,再次偷东西(获得)
    宝宝们,因为今晚,苦力怕还是打算试着再次偷袭我们,再次偷袭我们
    当您认为自己很安全时,从后面听到一些嘶嘶声
    当你以为安全的时候,嘶嘶声却在背后响起,就在背后!
    对,就在后面...
    在...在背后...就在背后!
    那是你的美好生活,可惜现在,时间,时间都结束了
    虽然这种生活也不赖,但是羞辱总得结束啊,在...在现在...就在现在
    时间,时间,时间,时间...
    在...在现在...就在现在
    炸毁,然后健康栏下降,您可以使用1-up
    轰的一声,你的血量掉了一大截,你最好吃点东西回点血
    进去,不要迟到
    最好不要吃得太晚
    所以现在你被困在那里,剩下半颗心,但不要死,死,死
    你现在倒在那里,扣了一般的血差点就要挂掉,要...要挂了...差点就要挂了
    死死死...
    要...要挂了...差点就要挂了
    因为今晚宝贝,爬虫正在试图再次偷走我们所有的东西
    宝宝们,因为今晚,苦力怕还是打算试着再次偷袭我们,再次偷袭我们
    引起宝贝今晚,您再次抓住镐,铲子和螺栓,再次螺栓(获得)
    宝宝们,因为今晚,翻箱倒柜还是只有破铜烂铁,破铜烂铁
    然后运行,直到完成,直到太阳在早晨升起。
    跑,再跑,继续跑,直到他停...停下来,直到太阳升起
    因为今晚宝贝,爬虫正在试图再次偷走我们所有的东西
    宝宝们,因为今晚,苦力怕还是打算试着再次偷袭我们
    “爬行者,你是我的,哈哈”
    “苦力怕,你是我的了,哈哈\(^ o ^)/〜”
    “挖出钻石,手工制作钻石,制作一些盔甲,让它变成宝贝”
    “拿挖到的钻石,制成盔甲和武器,得到它们”
    “像你一样,像你这样锻造,MLG pro,钻石制成的剑,所以来找我吧,兄弟。”
    “去发掘就像你这种,MLG pro,这把剑可是钻石做的,所以现在阔以计划攻略了”
    Hu
    哈哈
    “在手电筒下训练您的房间,磨练这种形式,使您为大战做好准备”
    在房间里火把的火光下训练,为了即将到来的战斗做准备
    “每一天和整个晚上,Creeper都会发出警告,嗯-好吧”
    每日每夜,这段时间爬出来的所有苦力怕
    “看着我,看着你,报仇,这就是我要做的。”
    看看我,再看看你自己,复仇时间到,我要做我该做的事
    “我是个勇士宝宝,还有什么新东西吗?我的刀片会撕裂(因为今晚的宝宝,)穿过你,把它拿来”
    我现在已经成为一个战士了,你准备尝尝被碎尸万段的滋味吧
    爬虫试图再次偷走我们的东西(“把所有东西都拿走吗?”)
    宝宝们,因为今晚,苦力怕还是打算试着再次偷袭我们(准备好了吗?开战吧!)
    “是的,让我们夺回世界”(是的,今晚宝贝,)
    耶,来吧!(宝宝们,就在今晚)
    “哈哈哈”
    哈哈
    拿起你的剑,盔甲去
    拿起你的剑,穿上盔甲
    “开着”
    去吧
    报仇(“呜呜”)
    去复仇吧
    啊啊啊
    嗷嗷嗷嗷〜
    所以战斗,战斗就像生命中的最后一晚一样,生命(ahhahah)向他们展示你的咬人
    所以战斗,再战斗,让恶梦结束,让它结束,让他们消失在你的人生里,给他们点颜色看看瞧
    “呜呜”
    哇喔〜
    因为今晚宝贝,(“ Ahhhhahaahaaah”)爬行者试图再次偷走我们所有的东西
    宝宝们,因为今晚,苦力怕又尝试偷袭我们
    引起宝贝,今晚,您再次抓住镐,铲子和螺栓,再次螺栓(获得)(“呜”)
    宝宝们,因为今晚,翻箱倒柜还是只有破铜烂铁,破铜烂铁
    然后运行,直到完成,直到太阳在早晨升起。
    再跑,继续跑,直到他停...停下来,直到太阳升起
    造成今晚的宝贝,爬行者试图再次偷走我们所有的东西(“ C'mon,向'em C'mon挥舞着剑,只显示'em all'”)
    宝宝们,因为今晚,苦力怕又尝试偷袭我们(去吧,挥起你的剑,给他们点颜色瞧瞧)
    “呜呜”
    “哇哦”
