Roblox is an amateur game-maker/-player system for Xbox, PC, tablets, and smartphones. Although it looks visually unappealing compared to professionally made games, it attracts millions of young players to play online together because of its varied and unusual games its makers have created.
In the UK and Europe, PEGI rated Roblox as suitable for those 7 years and older for frequent scenes of mild violence and scenes which younger children may find frightening.
The Video Standards Council expanded on the PEGI rating by saying, “Violence is very mild and consists of blocky, action-figure and stick-like humanoid characters competing in various child-friendly games. Armed with fists, swords or guns they can hit each other until they fall apart and disappear. Blood and injuries are not depicted.”
Parents should watch out for user-created games that fall outside the ratings and do include more blood and violence than the rating suggests. Care is also warranted about friending other players who may be strangers of any age and can communicate with children in the game.
