Why this game is the better
I love this game and do you know why?
This game is really fun and you can actually play with your friends so that is awesome.
in this game, you can create something so but.As part of Family Zone’s many helpful features, we can block Roblox from your children’s devices, without blocking other games they may be allowed to play. Our team of Cyber experts has identified this game as being completely unsafe for children to use. The lack of moderation in the chat feature and uploaded user content leaves children at risk of exposure to a huge range of inappropriate adult content, bullying and susceptibility to online predators.
At Family Zone, we understand that navigating this journey as a parent is difficult. But you're not in it alone - our team of Cyber Experts can help you sort out what apps and content are appropriate for your child, and provide you with the tools and resources to help you protect your children online.
Parents need to know that Roblox is a game-creation site where users design and upload their own games, as well as play other games in a multiplayer environment. Some of the gameplay is advanced, and many games include weapons. The site offers a safe-chat mode for those under 13, as well as a parent login that lets you oversee your child's use of the site. There have been reports of users thwarting the chat and exchanging inappropriate/predatory messages with young players; although we haven't encountered that directly during our extensive use of the site, parents may still want to be wary when their kids are using the site or connecting with people they've just met. There are in-game currency items called Robux that you can use to unlock additional items, but you will either earn these slowly or pay for additional cash with real money. They can also sign up for a membership for extra content and can insert in-game ads into their created games, potentially making large sums of money off their unique ideas.
Additional purchases are not the biggest issue with this game however, the social interaction amongst players is. The purpose of the game is for players to interact and make friends with one and other. This is achieved by wandering around the online world and stopping to talk with other players. The discussions take place within an unmoderated chat feature. Like any online multiplayer game, there is little to no control over the types of people or age limits of those playing the game. This means that your children are susceptible to being groomed by online predators.
Unfortunately, within the online gaming world, where there are games marketed to children, there will be online predators looking for an easy avenue to make contact with children. Games like this are often used as a platform to lure children away from the game and onto other more dangerous and invasive platforms such as Facebook, Snapchat and even in some cases Skype. This is the most dangerous aspect of Roblox. The game is most appealing to younger children, under the age of 12 and therefore a very easy targeting zone for predators. Children of this age are an easy target as they lack the ability to comprehend when another player is making inappropriate requests of them.
The game allows players to invite each other into their online bedrooms and to engage in sexualised behaviour. Whilst this is all very superficial and no “simulated” sex acts can be depicted within the game; the insinuation is there. More advanced players, are able to create their own online worlds for other players to enter which often means that pornographic content can also be uploaded for children to see. The game is not safe for children under the age of 12 and even then, Family Zone does not recommend any children play the game.
