Roblox is indeed a MMO; however, saying it is a MMO game is kind of a stretch. For those who haven’t known about it, Roblox is a MMO platform which offers its own engine and tools for users to create their own games. It is available for PC, iOS, Android, Xbox One, and Oculus Rift. The “game” is extremely popular worldwide and according to Roblox’s shared data, it has 64 million monthly active players (which pretty much tells us how extremely popular Roblox is).
Since Roblox intentionally aims for children and families, the platform is quite safe and friendly for various players from kids to adults. In addition, it is a part of Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI) and Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). For more information, you can check out their site via this link.
Joining Roblox is simple. For starters, you can register your Roblox account via their site. After filling all necessary information and confirming your registered email, the site will lead you to your account page where you can customize your own avatar, along with other stuffs. When you are ready, it’s time to check out the Games section and enjoy a wide variety of games. At the moment, there are tons of featured games and it may feel difficult to pick out one. But don’t worry because now is the time to check out some of the best Roblox games 2017!

Do you like pizza? We do! Yet for most of the time, we don’t know how a pizza restaurant works (unless you have already worked for one before). Luckily, Work At Pizza Place is the exact opportunity for us to work as a team to build up our very own pizza restaurant. You can either be a cook, cashier, or delivery mule. Each job of course has different “mission” and interesting enough, all jobs are fun to do especially when running the restaurant with our trusted fellows. After all the hard works, we can use our earned cash to spend on customizing our own house and simply having fun with other co-workers. If you are lucky enough, you may get to the “Party Island” where all the fun continues wildly.
Murder Mystery 2

If you are familiar with board game, you probably know a particular game called Werewolf in which players have to analyze and find out the identity of the killers among their rank. This game is extremely fun and good thing is: we can enjoy this experience on Roblox with the game Murder Mystery 2.
In this game, a group of players will get to choose a map they want to play on. After that, each will be given a role: Innocent, Sheriff, or Murderer. The goal of Murderer is of course killing other people, while the Innocent tries to survive the day and the Sheriff has to find out which one is the Murderer. Both Murderer and Sheriff will get their own weapons, which may sound unfair for the Innocent. But in fact, the game is balanced, for example, Murderer can only have knife for melee attack.
When we put it like this, the game sounds pretty simple but it is surprisingly addicting. You always feels like keep on going for another rounds. If you prefer games with mysterious, detective, and slight-horror vibe, we recommend trying out Murder Mystery 2.

In short, Phantom Forces is kind of Battlefield or Call of Duty-type of game in which players are put in a map and shoot each other. At first glance, Phantom Forces may not feel as much. But as we experience the game, it feels extreme sensational. It is no doubt among the most advanced games on Roblox with extensive game mechanics. Shooting feels unexpectedly good; each map feels unique and fun to mess with. Not only that, it has in-depth class and gun customization system with detailed gun models and tons of attachments to choose from. The game also gets constant updates with new maps, guns, attachments, mechanics and gameplay. As the result, it is quite hard to get bored with Phantom Forces. So, if you want to look for new FPS game besides Battlefield and Call of Duty? It is probably time to get along with Phantom Forces.

To certain extent, we can consider Jailbreak as “Grand Theft Auto 5 of Roblox”. In this game, players are given 2 roles: Prisoners or Cops. As Prisoners, your job is to escape from the prison… obviously? Meanwhile, Cops are provided with a pistol, taser, and a set of cuffs and their job is to capture the escaping Prisoners. So what will happen if the Prisoners successfully escape from the prison? Well, successful escape does not mean game-over, rather, the game starts to become an open-world where Prisoners become Criminals and they will do whatever they can to avoid the Cops. At this point, the game is relatively a catch-and-chase game between Criminals and Cops throughout the open area. Jailbreak is a fun game indeed and it will surely worth your time.

Lumber Tycoon 2 is the sequel to the original Lumber Tycoon 2008 and it still maintains its core gameplay. In short, the game’s purpose is to gather woods to gain money and purchase more stuffs like vehicles, sawmills, and more… To some extent, we can say it is like “The Sims Lumberjack Edition”. The game is quite pleasant, yet still interesting with tons of wood types to chop and stuffs to purchase. It provides us quite a nice and pleasant time enjoying ourselves and building up our own “lumber empire”. Lumber Tycoon may not sound much, but as long as you prefer relaxing games, this game is going to be awesome.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) is probably the most popular FPS game in 2017 as players are thrown into a battleground where only a single person can survive. Natural Disaster Survival is kind of… similar to that concept; however, your main enemy is not other players. Instead, players will have to try and survive various natural disasters like flood or earthquake. All are specifically designed to kill and therefore, stay alert if you want to survive. This game is really exciting and fun to play. And who knows? Maybe we will learn how to avoid real natural disasters?

Some of us really like assuming the role of teachers and students. Luckily, Roblox High School is exact where we can enjoy our school-roleplaying. Basically, the game works similar to real world school with 8 distinct teams: principal, teachers, freshmen, sophomores, juniors, seniors, cheerleaders and athletes. Besides the school, the map actually features a fine town with lots of stuffs to do like dance clubs, swimming pools, camping, and fun events. In general, the game is nice place for school simulation and hanging out with other fellows. That said, the students normally do not exactly study at school (like they are supposed to?) and also, the game may have lots of people playing solely for dating purposes.
