Roblox made its official debut on September 1, 2006 and has since grown into a very popular MMO (massive multiplayer online) game. In 2019, there were over 90 million active users on Roblox each month. Similar to Minecraft, Roblox allows users to stretch their creativity and build worlds and their own games. The Roblox team also creates worlds and games for users to enjoy.

Most of the oldest Roblox games were created by the Roblox team and were fairly popular. Unfortunately, most of these classic games are no longer accessible through their original listing. However, some of them are uncopylocked so that users can take copies and their own twist and make them playable again.
