One of the most popular gaming platforms on the Internet is completely closed to any romantic representation
Roblox is one of the biggest video game phenomena that the Internet has embraced in recent years, supporting millions of users who come together every day to enjoy its vast line of experiences . Also, being aware of the great community behind their name, from Roblox they emphasize wanting to create a safe place for everyone … even if that means eliminating all traces of in-game romance?
Roblox blocks the romantic component with the intention of protecting its community
“Roblox is a safe place to meet friends online, chat, and collaborate on creative projects, but we prohibit content that seeks or promotes romantic relationships , such as:
- Animations of kisses, shaking hands or other romantic gestures in a romantic context.
- Experiences that show romantic events, such as weddings, dates or honeymoons . “
Although it can be a somewhat radical guideline for its users, there are those who have seen it logical (and of course I also) when you take into account that Roblox has a large children’s audience . This means that due to the insecure nature of the Internet, you cannot be 100% sure who you are playing with and what it entails. As much joke as this decision may generate, you can understand where it really comes from.
In any case, it does not seem that decisions like this are going to affect the future of Roblox too negatively, especially when a few months ago it already exceeded in value some of the most prominent companies in the video game industry . Whether romance will ever return to Roblox is still unknown, but what can be guaranteed is that the platform will continue to grow.
