Roblox and Minecraft are both based on creativeness. Minecraft lets you create structures and places with blocks that are only cubed, and has a small amount blocks that aren't cubed. Roblox lets you create blocks with any desired shape or size.

Minecraft has a very limited amount of entities compared to Roblox which lets you make your own entities. Roblox has 1,024 different block combinations for textures, get technical and you have over 1,000,000.

Roblox also HD textures, compared to Minecraft's pixelated textures, and you can easily switch to different types of textures using blocks without detail if that's not your thing.

Well then, I'll state again the arguments I just stated.
Gabe1e

Con

1. "Roblox lets you create blocks with any desired shape or size."
Minecraft lets you do this as well. Well, not create blocks, but create castles, and other objects as well. Roblox and Minecraft are alike because they can both do this.

2. "Minecraft has a very limited amount of entties compared to Roblox which lets you make your own entities."
This sentence really depends on the type of Minecraft. If you are playing with mods, there are WAY more entities. If not, then yes, Roblox has more entities.

3. "Roblox also HAS HD textures, compared to Miencraft's pixelated textures, and you can easily switch to different types of textures using blocks without detail if that's not your thing."
This also depends. If you have a laggy computer, sometimes people put their sliders down to 1, which makes Roblox pixelated and blocky. So, this really depends. as well.

Now onto my arguements.

You are focusing on building in Roblox Studio... you haven't said anything about the players. Roblox is a kids game. Same is Minecraft, except more teens play Minecraft. If you join a game in Roblox, most people there are 14 and under. Most kids in Minecraft are about 13-16. In fact, I see 20 year olds play Minecraft. You do not see 20 year olds playing Roblox anytime. Also, there are annoying people on Roblox and Minecraft. Roblox has its "Guests" and "Noobs", while Minecraft also has "Noobs" and "Griefers/Trollers."

In Minecraft, there are MANY servers. You can make a server and play with your friends. You can build HUGE creations! [1] It's really fun on survival too because you can mine and build a house. I personally like going on "Hard" difficulty for a challenge. Now, I know that Minecraft is pixelated and blocky, but so is Roblox. Roblox isn't pixelated, but it's blocky. Also, on Roblox there are ADs and annoying games. Also, people try to hack and scam you for Robux and Tix. It's really annoying. That's why I stopped playing.

So as you can see Minecraft has the advantage so far, you're up Pro.

Sorry if I'm not doing this right, I'm new to this website.

"Roblox lets you create blocks with any desired shape or size."

Minecraft lets you do this as well. Well, not create blocks, but create castles, and other objects as well. Roblox and Minecraft are alike because they can both do this.
Sorry, I don't think I was clear with this argument. I meant to say that you can configure the blocks to any shape or size so that you can build structures and other things with great aesthetics and accuracy. Therefore, you can create structures in Roblox that look better than structures in Minecraft. Proof:
Minecraft Eiffel tower: http://next-games.de...
Roblox Eiffel tower: http://t7.rbxcdn.com...
Minecraft Statue of Liberty: http://static.planetminecraft.com...
Roblox Statue of Liberty: http://t0.rbxcdn.com...

"Minecraft has a very limited amount of entities compared to Roblox which lets you make your own entities."
This sentence really depends on the type of Minecraft. If you are playing with mods, there are WAY more entities. If not, then yes, Roblox has more entities.

Like I said, in Roblox you can make your own entities. Technically that means you can make the same amount as in Minecraft because you can make entities in both. However, it is easier to make them in Roblox than Minecraft, because you need no coding to make one in Roblox, and you need to learn how in Minecraft. In Roblox you can easily make a dragon that follows people around and kills them in less than five minutes.

"Roblox also HAS HD textures, compared to Miencraft's pixelated textures, and you can easily switch to different types of textures using blocks without detail if that's not your thing."
This also depends. If you have a laggy computer, sometimes people put their sliders down to 1, which makes Roblox pixelated and blocky. So, this really depends. as well.
Some games do not require having a slider set up to 10 to look good, as I personally went to this place: http://www.roblox.com... and saw that it barely changes if you set the slider to 1. The only thing that changes is the lighting. Also, setting a slider down to 1 does not make it pixelated and blocky. It simply changes/removes the textures. Look here, I took screenshots of a place (http://www.roblox.com...) and I have screenshots of with the slider up to 10, and at 1. The only things that change are the textures, and some of the lighting.

"In fact, I see 20 year olds play Minecraft. You do not see 20 year olds playing Roblox anytime." I'd like to see your sources for that. Just because people do not say their age, it does not mean that they do not have an age.

"Roblox is a kids game. Same is Minecraft, except more teens play Minecraft."
I do not understand how that is an argument. The fact that more teens play Minecraft does not make it better than Roblox.

Also, there are annoying people on Roblox and Minecraft. Roblox has its "Guests" and "Noobs", while Minecraft also has "Noobs" and "Griefers/Trollers."
Again, I don't see how this is an argument.

"In Minecraft, there are MANY servers. You can make a server and play with your friends. You can build HUGE creations!"
In Roblox, there are MANY games. You can make a game and build HUGE creations with your friends, by creating models for your friends and putting them into the game. You can collaborate with strangers around the world and you don't have to worry about your place because you can always save it.

"Roblox isn't pixelated, but it's blocky."
I know Roblox is centered around building with blocks, but you can use many other parts to build such as wedges, cylinders and spheres. Also, Cframing. It lets you rotate/resize/move blocks into other blocks to make something look amazing. You can create an arch using only cubes.

"Also, on Roblox there are ADs and annoying games. Also, people try to hack and scam you for Robux and Tix. It's really annoying."
I don't see how ads are bad. They are not interfering or showing up over anything on the website, and really aren't doing anything. You can also download an adblocker to block them if you really have trouble with them. The annoying games don't show up on the front page anymore, they only have the good games. People hack in Minecraft too, I doubt there's a single game that is hack-free. Same with scamming, some people try to scam you with server donations and other things that don't actually end up working.

On to my arguments. (I think?)

Groups.
Roblox has groups that people can create, and use them for many, many things. People create war groups, and fight with them to collect clan points. You can see who has the highest clan points on the leaderboard, and get hype and fame from it. You can be respected as a Commodore or whatever rank you are. People make groups to chat about things, and interesting facts. You can organize a large group of people and control battle plans against the enemy, for people who like war. If you like to roleplay there are many, many roleplay groups and places specially designed for that.

You can make money off Roblox. You can build your place, have people visit it, and convert your earnings to Robux, and convert that to real money. Someone even made $10,000 in a month.
http://blog.roblox.com...

Roblox has Gameplay that you can fully customize in your games. I can name many games that have completely different objectives. I'll name some here.
-Play as a bee, pick up nectar and avoid spiders
-Murder enemies without being shot by the sheriff
-Build a boat, and if it floats, fight enemies using either a sword, or a gun.
-Build a base, then buy guns and fight.
-Ride several roller coasters at an amusement park.
-Build a cybersuit, then fight other's cybersuits in an arena.

Wow, that's really long.
Okay Con, go ahead.
Sorry again if I did something wrong in my argument.

Minecraft is way better. it has mods that add way more than Roblox. Only thing Roblox has is many players in one server without the players having slow games.
