Roblox is my game for fun and education

Roblox is my game for fun and education

By Elrond Abram G. Esplana

Roblox is one of the most integrated or what we call as “all-in-one” development engine online games in the world. It has a built-in physics engine and free cloud hosting. You can build and launch your game simultaneously on PC, Mac, iOS and Android devises.

There are hundred to thousand games that you can play in Roblox. You just have to select your game choice you want to play. Also, the system will teach you and show you how you can play the different games. There are two ways to access and play Roblox. Either you register or not. But if you will not register, you cannot save the games that you want to continue, so you can build your knowledge in playing the games next time. So, it is important to save all your things, especially the skin or image of the character you want to represent yourself in Roblox.

My favorite segments in Roblox games include: Tycoon or business-building games, Survival games, Natural Disaster games, and Hike and seek games. Here are some things I learned in Roblox while I am playing the games such as: 1) I improve my patience in doing things; 2) I also learn to relax and lessen the stress in studying; and 3) I also learn new English words and abbreviations of words commonly used while interacting with fellow game players, such as: GG or good game, THX or Thanks, NP or No problem.

I believe that computer game is not only for fun but all also for educational purposes in building your knowledge, attitude, and right perspective in life on what to do, and how to do things using online games platform as a vicarious experience (e.g. like becoming a superhero, becoming a lumber business entrepreneur, food-chain business tycoon, etc.).  If you want to know more, you can visit the Roblox website at www.roblox.com or you can go directly to: https://www.roblox.com/games.
