I am going to compare these two good games and you choose which you like, this will be decided in 3 parts, prices, community, final thoughts. Each category has two parts. May the best game win!
Pricing Part 1:Roblox
Roblox has many different "BCs", or upgrades and you need to buy something or you might as well not play.
BC is 5 bucks per month and a good starter choice but maybe less appealing to those who want to be more involved and known in the game. TBC is the next thing and is 10 bucks per month, this is one for newbies who decided they need more ingame cash than BC can provide. OBC is 20 bucks per month and give the highest allowances in the game, this is something I reccomend after playing the game for atleast 3 months and if you decide you like it then go ahead and buy it.
These prices are monthly so you end up spending hundreds no matter what, lifetime is available but it costs from 200 bucks to 500! The price is very high and it ruins the game for many people, but irresponsible players cost them bandwith with thier hundreds of alts and they are forced to do it or shut down the game.
Pricing Part 2:Minecraft
Minecraft has a appealing price which is only 14 dollars and you get the game forever (the price will go to 20
when it is fully released so buy it fast!). The game is not overpriced and they planned it well and the creators of minecraft have made millions from thier constant stream of money from people buying the game. The only thing you can say about the prices are...EPIC!
Community Part 1:Roblox
The Roblox community is a majority of kids then teens and a few adults. There are friendly people but in the forums or people with a higher BC than you are stuck-up and constantly attempt to show that they are superior in an online world that doesn't matter. The forums are constantly hunted by mods and dozens are banned everyday, I once got banned for saying to a friend, "Hey I got Portal!". They need every penny so any mention of another game, even if you insult it, you get banned. Yes you can be a guest in Roblox but the little kids who are constantly bullied by teens or adults with better bcs take thier anger out on guests and kill them at every opppurtunity. The Roblox community is in ruins.
Community Part 2:Minecraft
The minecraft community is not perfect but it is pretty good, people help you out and it is easy to make friends and play, I have only had Minecraft for a week so I am not so sure about the forums but you guys can tell me about it in the comments. Minecraft is also fun because while you save up to buy it you can play the free mode and still make friends!
Final Thoughts Part 1&2
Both games are good and Roblox might have been able to win in my opinion if it didn't go crazy with prices and bad community. Minecraft is a very good and fun choice, you can build huge structures and survive wave after wave of zombies and teleport to a mysterious world known as, "The Nether." Roblox has about 2 or 3 million people since 70% either never play, log on once a year, or are just alts. Minecraft has about 7 million who bought the game and are playing it with millions more a part of the community. Minecraft wins in my opinion but I guess you guys choose.
