Top Ten Roblox Game Genres That Shouldn't Exist

This is a list for the ROBLOX game genres that simply don't need to be on ROBLOX for whatever reason you so choose. Note that this isn't a list for games that shouldn't exist, but rather categories for those games.

Should you happen to come across one of these big steaming piles of wet garbage, taking up room on the front page, (or anywhere else for that matter) downvote it, and depending on the circumstances, report it. Eventually something will be done.

It is also worth noting that many of these games are a vocal minority, acting as shining beacons of hope that maybe ROBLOX truly is what everyone says it is. A website full of stale gameplay, a horrible community, and an overall lack of maturity.

If you do frequently play games that fall into these categories, I want you to take this with a grain of salt because these games are why ROBLOX still has this image that it has had for years.

As of creating this list, I haven't put these items into any spacific order of badness. It's a little helter-skelter at the moment. Casting your vote will help put it all in order, so I encourage you to do so.

I may use this for a YouTube video.
The Top Ten
1 Online Dating Games

These are those games that you see floating around the front page 24/7 that the admins don't do anything about, despite it being against the rules. Commonly populated by cringey-clothed NBC folk, the games are full of younger players who would rather pretend to be in a relationship and be scorned by the community and possibly moderated for it, than to make possibly close friends the way that most people, the ones who aren't shunned who actually have a chance of becoming part of the part of the community that many strive to be part of.

Before realising exactly what ODing on Roblox was, I played lots of those sorts of games. Roblox has become overridden with "roleplaying" games, which in reality, if you take one closer look, you find that the game itself is a mere excuse for ODing and ODing purposes. Games that encourage ODing include Boys and Girls Hangout, Adopt and Raise a Cute Kid, MeepCity, Roblox High School Roleplaying Games, any Town and City genres.

Not fair they ban us for saying a bad word, but they yes have their account just a warning.

Online dating is against the roblox rules

2 Misleading Games/Clickbait

I found a clickbait obby game called "Parkour Obby!" , it was made by hexagonal studio, which this group was set to private.

the thumbnail and icon looks like a boss baby obby, but in-game, it's a among us obby...

also, on stage 14, the red circles send you to a random obby/tycoon game, which is REALLY annoying in my opinion, and it has 10K+ likes and it shouldn't be.

There are many games that fall into this category. Many of these have names that describe what you do in the game in the title. Others that have thumbnails that you could swear that you've seen elsewhere. Whatever the case, if the title or thumbnail don't math what's really in the game, you, the player, like so many others, have fallen victim to one of the many games only intended to make the owner profit. Should you find one of these, report it for misleading content and there's a chance the moderators will do something about it

That's why roblox made it cost robux to change the icon for your game. Many people wouldn't pay to have someone click off once they realize it's not the game they originally wanted to play.

What's that, Skydive off a 9'000 feet building? Then tell me, why is this just a tycoon?

3 Obbies

Obbies are nothing, they are almost like jumping simulator. There are no challenging about it. They are making some cool thumbnails and botting their views and favorites. They also have fake gamepasses witch dosen't do anything. There are many scammers in it. And at the end they give you paths, speeds, and gears witch every obby has it. Obbies should be removed from Roblox.

Obbies are arguably one of the most well known genres of ROBLOX game that take little to no effort to make and get popular. With the primary target being new players to the site, it's no wonder that the people to play these games never seem to get enough of it.

Obbies suck and should be done away with! They're a terribly outdated genre! If you want to play a REAL Roblox game,go for one of the tyoons,simulators or role playing servers. Don't even bother with Obbies-they're just a pitiful relic of the past that needs to be done away with.

PlantinumFalls is the only one who has good “Obbies” because there are a lot of details and it is not only jumping... he has some hard things. I espically love escape the prison one, because it is an adventure. It is mixed with lost in space with prison, I love PlantinumFalls. Always play his obbies. Not only PlantinumFalls has good obbies. Crazyblox has also a very incredible good obbies. I enjoy his game called flood escape 2. It is about a flood is rising to lava, acid, and water, there are easy,normal,hard, and insane maps. And if you want a hard or/and good obbies. Go to Crazyblox or sometimes PlantinumFalls. Because Crazyblox has better obbies. PlaninumFalls is 2nd. Thank me later. Oh by the way. If you see any games called Fall 1000000 miles down or anything like that, don’t trust it. Because mostly of them are just jumping simulator. And it is hard to get to the winners by its boring made map... so... as I said. Go to Crazyblox or PlantinumFalls.

4 Tycoons

Why is tycoons on this list?
It is one of the best genres. I know 75% of all Tycoons are money hungry clones but the 25% are good ones like Resturant Tycoon or Water Park tycoon

Tycoons always the same, and are always money hungry with annoying you to buy gamepasses that don't even work. Sure, there IS some good tycoons, but they are hard to find, but still are repetitive. To be honest, the whole genre is repetitive.

Tycoons are generally considered one of the most mundane and outdated genres of game. You wait around for your money to accumulate, and when it does, you spend it on meaningless decorations for your button-covered baseplate in the sky.

It is the best games in roblox history

5 Five Nights at Freddy's Ripoffs

Now, don't get me wrong. Five Nights at Freddy's is by no means a bad game. I'm not saying it's the best indie game ever made, but a game that I can understand putting time into completing. Now, ROBLOX Ripoffs on the other hand, they're 9/10 times free modeled poorly built games full of people who seem to have never played the real game for themselves, but rather watched Markiplier, lord and savior of Five Nights at Freddy's Let's Plays do it. The shear fact that even though words having to do with the original game are censored, and people are being banned for making games about it, the games are still being churned out and played by a selec few who have managed to find a way to get around the ROBLOX admins obvious not wanting Five Nights at Freddy's content on the site.

The night shift enough said

Fnaf is a good game sreie, but this ripoffs are just disrespectful

Just horrible

6 Free Robux Games

Its terrible honestly, their just scamming people and most of the time, their kids. Its trying to take your personal info and use it against you. If not personal info, then its usually information about your roblox account so they can hack it.

I think that Roblox should delete every game that says "Free Robux" because a lot of people fall for it..

I'm not even gonna say the name.

I tried and they just a a scam

7 Hangout/Roleplay Games

Now before you burn my house down for insulting roleplay games, I will say that there really are some really good roleplay games out there. I will admit to my fair share of it once in a while. I'm talking about those morph ridden, free model filled, scriptless, generic Boys and Girls Hangout, FNaF Roleplay, etc. Games that really make you wonder about the why he ROBLOX building standards have fallen so low even in this day and age. It seems that games like [insert any random adjective here] Town of Robloxia keep getting more popular by the day.

Role-play games are very nice, at least most are. It just depends on who's playing them at the time.

I hate roleplay games since they unrealistic to what actually happens IRL

I don't really think they should be deleted but there are SOOO many ODers!

8 Murder Games

The very first ROBLOX murder game came in January of 2014. Murder Mystery by Nikilis. It was derived from the popular Gmod gamemode sharing a similar name. Clonetrooper1019 made a similar game entitled Murder, which was arguably the better, more in-depth game which was closest to the original Gmod inspiration. It didn't get the attention it so desperately desired. In the wake of the popularity of Murder Mystery came The Mad Murderer by loleris. It took ROBLOX by storm staying on the front page for weeks at a time. Seeing the "2014 Murder Craze" smaller developers tried to feed off of the popularity to no avail. The murder genre had become a monopoly until about late September of 2014 when taymaster made Twisted Murder. Since then, Taymaster and Loleris have been fighting for dominance since. For better or worse, Loleris has been fighting an uphill battle simply because his game is older and the ROBLOX community, even though it can be fed the same gameplay for a seemingly infinite ...more

Murder games on Roblox are not really fun. But when it comes to Murder Mystery... *Cough

Murder mystery is the best and murder is stupid because you can't get a knife or gun

I love murder games like murder mystery 2 and Arsenal because it's also killing.

9 Simulators

simulators are fun but once you get everything or everything is too expensive or costs robux they get crappy definitely should take money simulator of that aren't crap.

Simulators are nothing but trashy cash grabs, sure there are a few exceptions such as Bee Swarm Simulator, but simulators are just bad in general.

Idek why I used to like 'em. They're just you doing one or like 2 actions over and over to rank higher than other people.

Hey wanna play WIZARD SIMULATOR UPDATE 420! (New World To Waste Your Time)

10 Game Ripoffs

Omg. So basically. You guys (ALL) know adopt me. It's basically just Adopt and raise. (I don't like either)

The Contenders
11 Clickbait Games that are Crappy and Misleading

It's full of lies and not fun to play

Nope. I hate 'em.

12 Paid Access Games that Require You to Pay Using Robux

It so horrible when that happens because everything on roblox should be free I acthally got bullied because of this :((clothing plus robux) p.s Bloxberg is cool but why 25 robux!

Roblox is supposed to be free. I understand because and the catalog, but paying to access games? Now THAT'S a cash grab. (Except games still in beta mode, paying for early access is the only thing that makes sense).

I hate these because I finally find games that look interesting AND IT COSTS ROBUX DAMMIT!

why mint tycoon 100 robux

13 Greedy Games

Imagine, your a player that just wants to play some games for fun, but there is this one feature that you really like but you have to spend robux on it. You decide to buy it since you really want to try it out, but after you use it you become bored of it, so tell me, was it really worth the money?

Like Military simulator. It's a simulator so why should you have to pay to play? or you have to join the group to be a sercurity. mostly for gold diggers.

these games are just like BC and TBC and OBC games

14 Adopt and Raise a Baby

The balloon is 5$!Don't judge a book by the cover.It's offending me and quit sending mean stuff.You are ruining the early years of my life!Stop that or I'll put bad revews and this dumb site will get deleted and so will the list,posts and comments.

This game genre needs to stop... its not even a real family so what’s the point of having a fake family, also it’s another gosh darn ODer game... there is morph magic to turn into usually a dog or a baby but you could also be other things like a cat or a snake, but the snake is pointless because the controls are terrible. Thank god the original game got banned for good... BUT THERE ARE STILL CLONES LIKE LIFE IN PARADISE AND ADOPT ME! Well, Adopt Me has some thing WAY TO GOD EXPENSIVE! $100 FOR A HOT AIR BALLOON THAT YOU ARE PROBABLY GONNA FALL OUT OF! Seriously... This genre needs to stop right now... Roblox if your hearing this, BAN ALL ADOPT GAMES!

Every Adopt and Raise is the same. Which is why I HATE adopt me.

Its horrible I just hate it I don't know why...

15 BC Only Money Schemes

There are many games that fall under this category. Just glancing at the because Only section of the games page will reveal countless utterly horrible excuses for games ever to crawl out from the depths of some money hungry BCer's vault of unwanted, unnecessary money making schemes. The because only section of the games page could have worked quite well if the place visit award wasn't ten times as much as the normal games that let in all players, regardless of their because status. Not to mention the fact that you need because to make one. If you're a BCer there really is no reason for you to be discontent with how much money you make. Even because - the cheapest form of because - gives you over twenty times what an NBCer gets every time they login.

16 Jailbreak

Jailbreak is the best game prison life sucks since you can't rob, all you do is escape and kill cops jailbreak changes everything.

Listen, the idea of jailbreak isn't bad, however, I consider this to be a copy of Prison Life, an older Roblox game. Sure, Jailbreak may be more upgraded and advanced than Prison Life, but Jailbreak just doesn't deserve the popularity it gets on a daily basis. Prison Life came out before Jailbreak, and had the general idea of Prisoners escaping jail and Police arresting criminals before Jailbreak. If you want my honest opinion, Jailbreak shouldn't be popular like it is, or be in existance.

Its overrated

17 Grand Theft Auto Copies

There's many grand theft auto rip offs like jailbreak

18 Meepcity

Meepcity is roleplay and is a rip-off of adopt me.

19 Roleplay Cafés/Honestores

Argh. I once had a job at a 'Hotel' here. Why did they even need to use grammar in the 1st place? Now, my friend works there. I just join them and leave for them to know what I might need them for something, or I have a question. There's no way I'm going to even talk in the hotel, 'Demoted for grammar' 'No Refunds warning after you buy something' like wut the hecc

These games always are the main game of roleplay corporations, the likes of which usually are real companies, who use copyrighted logos and names to sell their virtual coffee or shirts and pants of varying quality. Much of the time, the players of these games stand in hoards saying things like *sips coffee* or advertises the store opening times of the game that people always have access to. It is generally suggested that you don't go anywhere near these games as the staff usually go mad with power, (or just kohl's admin,) and treat everyone who isn't an "HR" like trash. The corruption of the owner(s) of these games is comparable to that of war groups. Deep rooted and unpleasant

20 Build to Survives

These games used to be easier but now they suck before you place a block wherever now it has some stupid thing to confirm where the block goes.

This kind of game can come in many forms. Mostly the same free-modeled ones that people have been using ever since the first free modeled Build to Survive made its way onto the front page. The genre could be a really fun and addicting one were it not due to the endless stream of them coming from all sides. While many new players may never stumble across the horrors of one, they still pop up from time to time in the Popular section of the games page. They may be one of the oldest forms of rehashed garbage on ROBLOX, but they still find a way to anger many players to this day.

No, Just not, Please. Let this genre die.

I build two blocks. I just survived, WHATS THE POINT?

21 Pokemon Brick Bronze Copies

Brick Bronze is a great game, but then Pokemon Breeze, Loomian Legacy, and other games showed up being dumb copies of brick brpnze

22 Extreme Roleplay Games

They're too unrealistic, they bring unrealistic to the max.

23 Cart Rides

Cart rides are all the same thing and half of them don't work right. They always have like 16 game passes with flashing colors. Most of the time cart rides actually get famous too.

Cart rides games are very boring

"xLEGOx" or "stravant" made his train cart model around 2008, people took his Free Model and used it to build train rides. It was all fun and games until people started placing gamepasses and other bullcrap to make money out of free models.
