Roblox has been called “the world’s most popular game you’ve never heard of”. It is by far the most popular gaming platform for children under 13, MTO News has confirmed.
The massive multiplayer online game recently even surpassed the number of Minecraft users. While the game may seem like an innocent digital playground for kids, there are frightening issues within his online community.
And one game in particular upset parents. The game allows children to impersonate mass shooters. In the game, children take a gun inside a school and kill as many of their classmates as they can.
MTO News has learned that parents are organizing online to pressure Roblox to remove the game from its platform.
Here’s a video showing the game in action:
Roblox is a vast online platform where children can create and interact in what its creators describe as “immersive 3D worlds”. Players have the option of creating an avatar (player) for themselves and they are allocated a small amount of digital money to rent a house. Money to furnish and decorate the home requires real-world money, with costs that add up quickly.
