Roblox is definitely one of the most well-known and trending gaming platforms around. It was created by Roblox Corporation in 2004 and later released in 2006.
However, the games on Roblox are not created or developed by Roblox Corporation and are mostly developed by other gamers on the platform. This provides it with a wide variety of authentic titles ranging from role-playing, action, and fashion offerings all the way to horror games.
Roblox was originally intended to be a gaming platform for teenagers and adults and hence has a bunch of games made for them and also by them. Many of these games are "13 years+" and tend to consist of gore and violence due to the preferences of the playerbase they're meant for.
On the flip side, there are also Roblox offerings that do not involve any violence or bloodshed and can be played by young gamers and may even help them develop certain skills.
