Re: X-box for an 8 year old child?

Can anyone explain the appeal of Roblox to me? My nine year old just started playing it. The graphics are garbage, the game control frustrating, there doesn't seem to be a goal. It's just a piece of shit. What is the appeal?

It is the new Minecraft. My kid is into it too.

But it's shit. When I was nine I played Metroid. What's the allure of a game with horrible graphics?

You are trying to rationalize something that kids like. Good luck with that.

Roblox is just a platform. There are hundreds of different games on there. I do agree that a lot of them are awful. Just look at the appeal of minecraft. The graphics suck but kids love it.
