Roblox is more fun because:

1. More physics.

2. More Items and gadgets

3. Can have up to 20-50 players in 1 server

4. Different Games in every server

5. You can create games

6.More monsters like Slenderman, Jack the killer, Mummies and many many more.

7. You could be the monster.

8. More friends to be explore.

9. You can dress up your virtual player.

10. You can create more.

11. Crop pictures of you and place it in your game


Minecraft is a better and more enjoyable game, and argument I will begin with rebuttal.

1; Physics, first of all, aren't inherently fun. Nor do they make a game superior. The minecraft engine allows blocks to stick together independently of gravity, without a welding tool required, such as in Gmod, a sandbox game that would be the obvious substitute if you really cared about physics.

2; Roblox items must be bought, something I'll touch on later.

3; Minecraft isn't solely a sandbox game, if you want large numbers of people per server messing with physics tools, then Garry's Mod 10 is the recommended game.

4; Minecraft has two basic options. Survival and Creative. This doesn't prevent different server games. Hide and Seek, Hunger Games, races and pvp.

5; You can create games in Minecraft as well. You can also host your own server, unlike Roblox. I will touch on this again along with point 2.

6; If enemies all do the same -animations and attacks, it's just a re-skin of the same Lego mini figure knock-off.

7; There are ways to be the monster in Minecraft, this will be one of my own points later.

8; Google translate proved unhelpful in translating that statement. Please rephrase your eighth point clearly.

9; PC minecraft players can design their own model. Xbox players can choose from a surprisingly large selection ranging from Marvel to Halo.

10; Minecraft literally has worlds that are millions of square kilometers (no pun intended)in size. Practically infinite. With a 256 height limit and a wide selection of blocks which a pc player can re texture, and the creative mod option, building is much more viable in Minecraft.

11; How are selfies a benefit. Why would -you need to place the pictures in-game? Just screen cap it and post it online if you're so vain.

Advancements of points 2 and 5; Now, Roblox is a free to play, and while it may seem nice in the short run, truthfully, how many times did you use real money to buy in game currencies? How many micro transactions did you undertake? Worse still, How much advertisement for these products did you experience? Minecraft lets you pay once, and then enjoy the full game, without psychological bullying. Since you own the product you purchased to some extent, you can play offline, something the DRM of Roblox prevents, forcing you to remain online.

Point 7 in detail; Minecraft's PC version also arrives with the boon of modifications; space adventures, vehicles, new weapons and gameplay styles. It's a custom built game for every player. Roblox is moderated to prevent this kind of expression occurring.

Now, another issue I'd like to address is appearance. Minecraft is loved for its simplistic yet aesthetic charm. Despite being blunt and lacking in detail, Minecraft's squareness keeps a consistent style across each model and texture by its system. Where Minecraft is compared to the look of Lego, Roblox is Duplo. The plastic and inconsistent build of the models as well as the hideous smile of the models gives the entire game a knock-off Lego feel, where Minecraft allowed players to create in the same way they would with Lego.

Minecraft is a better built game, which keeps a great artistic style running and doesn't force free to play elements like micro transactions into gameplay. This forms a better experience for the player, which makes it the superior game.

Also worth mentioning is Minecraft has plenty of very well made Mods. Almost +15 hours adding on to the limitless hours of gameplay of Vanilla Minecraft.

Apologies for missing the last round, I have been travelling in France which provided little in decent wifi. I will post a brief response here, but it may have errors as French keyboards do not use qwerty format.

Firstly more features does not mean better quality. Better features means more quality. You showed the features you thought made Roblox superior, and I gave rebuttal you have yet to address. These "extra" features don't enhance the gane to the point of superiority if the entire game is a knock off crossbreed of Minecraft and Garry's Mod.

Now, while there is a lot more to this, I understand that free to play games limit gameplay and features because it limits the dopamine frequencies of the brain. It prevents you from developing a resistance to its releases even as you do the same thing repeatedly. This illusion of having more fun is due to the game itself deciding how much content you can have, and forcing you to pay to have the rest. If you wanted to achieve the same result, just take a 15 minute break every half an hour of playing a game and spend the 15 mins thinking of playing.

To conclude, Roblox is an inferior game and uses the free to play system to trick you into thinking you are enjoying it more, rather than standing on its own merits.

See you next round.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro forfeited more than Con. Further, Pro never responded to Con's rebuttal case, and seemed to drop the whole thing in favor of the "more features" and personal preference arguments, neither of which, in their bare asserted state, were particularly compelling to me. As always, happy to clarify this RFD.
