I see a lot of people comparing ROBLOX and Minecraft and I just don't see why? I think both are great games, but they just can't be compared like people are doing it.

Con: They can't be compared
Pro: Yes they can (and if Pro wants to they can say which is better)

In my view mine craft is clearly better for many reasons and I think that they have completely different ideas and ideas for end results...

I accept this debate

Thanks for accepting Pro.

Let me remind you that we are debating if they can be compared, not debating which one is better.

One thing I like to think is that Minecraft is a game, while ROBLOX is a game engine. Let me explain. In the single player vanilla Minecraft you can either play survival and survive by gathering materials, building shelters, mining, and fighting mobs (or for those of you who don't know, enemy NPCs.) Or play in creative you build, a lot. Those are the mechanics of the game and the game modes, and it makes Minecraft fun. Plus, you access everything through the game.
ROBLOX seems like a Minecraft clone until you actually play for a bit. First, you go to a site to play the games. Second there are lots of games on ROBLOX. I use the ROBLOX studio to create games, and no, it's not like Minecraft. You have to build everything that's going to be in game, and then PROGRAM it. Unlike Minecraft, ROBLOX has lots of different games to play, FPS, RTS, RPG, Action, Horror, Building, Simulation. There are lots!
You see, Minecraft is a GAME with people using the game's tools to create things in game. There really is no ROBLOX game, there are games on ROBLOX using ROBLOX's game engine. This is why there is a lot more variety in ROBLOX, since developers aren't hindered to mechanics that already exist in game.

My opponent has failed to counter my arguments. So my arguments still stand.

Again, ROBLOX and Minecraft cannot be compared due to their different ideas

I think it is obvious who won this debate, thank you Pro and thank you voters!

I would like to remind the Con that this debate on whether or not they can be compared, not what the comparison is.

For those who don't know, ROBLOX is an online MMO/building game where players can build and script their own games and let others play them. At least, that's the basic fundamentals.
