I personally spend lots of money on virtual TF2 items myself, so I'm not in the best position to judge an 8 year old's virtual expenses. But... JESUS CHRIST is that game making money hand over fucking fist from retarded children and appeasing parents. It's insane, unfathomable. To put this whole thing into perspective imagine how the typical character skin for Minecraft is. Now, edit that however you please and pretend you can sell it. BOOM. You just made 60 bucks in one hour. Now try again but really try to fuck it up and make your design blatantly shit. You just made 90 bucks.
I asked his father just what the fuck was the appeal and he said he didn't know. But he was concerned that his son bought a really rare item and traded it for one quarter of what he paid for it minutes after getting it because he's buying items purely on impulse with little thought to what he's getting. Again, imagine unboxing an unusual in TF2 and then selling it for 2 craft hats just because you liked the other designs better.
tl;dr: I just don't fucking know anymore, /v/.
It's honestly a really good "Baby's First Script".
The amount of scripting and building that go into a level is actually pretty nuts. All of it is user made content too. It has gone to shit the past few years, but it still rakes in the dough and entertains kids.
NO IT'S NOT
It's been forever since I have actually taken a look at this game, but I remember it running like fucking shit on any computer.
Also, all of the ads are from users advertising their creations, but since all of the users are under 12, they're all shitastically designed in MS paint so it made me laugh.
I remember this game.
It came out ages before Minecraft and before all the user generated content on the shops it was pretty okay.
The lua scripting let users create basically everything.
The mods in this game are also hilariously negligent and griefing is way too easy.
Get on my fucking level
And holy shit it's been years since I checked up on roblox
Played the game for almost 8 years, i managed to find something enjoyable in this sea of shit. Mainly being a bro with building shit for little kids or just mess with try hards.
Here you go faggots
Im not normal any more because of you, ive become a dick sucking faggot sissy boy. Thank you /v/.
How hard did all of you cringe knowing you probably watched this?
My account got deleted for messing with those one-way Lego builders, but I remember some fun to be had in being a dick

I fucking remember this shit, I played the actual game for about a year and then I got bored, but I found out about the forms and went into the /b/ section (Off Topic). Holy fuck I remember everything
I still check on it every once and a while
Sometimes my mates and I still dick around in it. Fucking with little kids is hilarious
There was a group of 70 v members playing and building shit. I almost organized a war against some mlp war group. Since I design maps for these "guilds vs guilds" I could easily belkan mlp and rig it to favour us.
Yes an mlp group
I used to play the shit out of that game with my friends back then and I had a blast.
It looks like trash, it probably is too, even my dad made fun of me for playing it, but hell, somehow it was fucking fun.
I miss those times, /v/
It's always been shit. I remember playing it for a few days in 2008 for whatever fucking reason and I have some 2008 visor on my account. I wonder if that shit's rare and if I can trade it for real world shekels.
rate me fags, yes this is actually my character
I'm so ashamed to have played this game.
miked's places were fun as fuck, though.
Combination of secluded childhood haven and the internet
Thats why we look af 07 as a fun time
You aren't og if you didn't play this
Don't you have to be a member to do that? I got a billion shit from the early days that's worth a fortune but can't sell it; not that I play this shit anymore, like happy wheels it's stagnated and just constant remakes of already done levels.
How does this work? Is this an offsite thing like those Chinese WoW gold farmers? Do kids really ask their parents to drop $2k on a virtual hat?
>getting all those sex levels saved
I was an edgemeister back then
How I did it was finding the right connections and buyers. Me being bigger jew asked for the money first, then sent the goods overs. Simple as that.
I could of scammed that kid.
But yeah I sold my gold shit because it was the same attention as wearing a pewdiepie shirt, in a gamestop durning a cod release.
Yes you do need membership to jew kids.
>mfw finding out the leader of Vak is a ginger, irish neckbeard
>Been on those forums for years
I can't remember all that shit anymore but I know I was around there when that went on.
I can't remember any good memories of being there, I pretended to be a girl.
With all the colours available these kids go for monotone colours with black+something. Fucking disgusting seeing kids build places that look like modern art
Look at the typical edgy groups places, its all dark and red.
Fuck kids need to learn to diverse

>You will never play fun simplistic dog fighting games, obbies, physics maps, building games, or brick battles again

A-At least there's Rblxdev
I don't know how old I was when I just fucked off and quit, but I did it when most of the people I actually had fun with left.
Things were alright.
I frequently play Pilgrim Islands Reborn.
Are you telling me if I buy a membership I can spend 2 hours making a shirt and make more money than I make at my minimum wage job?
What are the odds of not making shit if I start selling things?
this game is so fucking trash now. it isn't even about blocks anymore, every modern place looks like a voxel abortion and there's so many fucking hats now holy shit. I still remember the onslaught of hats that started in 2009, before then you were lucky to even get a hat for a few months. that's when the game went to shit.
What difference would saving this image larger do? Honestly, if you care so much about someones "picture saving habits" you should be concerned about yourself.
>babby's first Fender bass
>it's LEFT HANDED
>that a perfectly triangular pick
>holding a fucking pick like a dorito
>using a FUCKING PICK to play bass
Fuck thumbnails, why would you save that abomination in any capacity?
I still play with my little brother sometimes
>Examining his pictures to the tee, complaining about a weeaboo image
I was called Chibi_Chao.
Same name on the Toribash forums and Animal Crossing Community.
Anyone remember me?
i kinda fuck with my character a little. just looking a some of the shit i had.
god, i remember listening to the gurren laggan sound track while playing this game all the time.
never remember having this green hat, though.
Who are you, anon.
If I don't recognize you I'm going back to the forums to bully you.
I remember this game, jesus christ it ran like shit on ANY PC you ran it on. Not to mention all the servers are basically the same reskins of "ESCAPE X" or "SLIDE DOWN Y" or "Z TYCOON" shit.
Nope, haven't seen you, not even once.
Holy shit kek I played roblox for 3 years before this. I think my name was royhatake or someshit. with numbers at the end probably.
I was this Hitler.
How hard did you nostalgia at this?
I'd expect as much.
Now tell your name.
No idea how I got into this game but I remember having a lot of fun with it. Especially with a level called "The Wall" or some bullshit, where you had to destroy parts of well...a wall to get inside of it. You could ride planes shoot bazookas and shit. Really mindless and simple but also fun.
That other poster wasn't me but I was
I could think of a few people it could have been.
Sadly I don't know your name, but you know me.
That shirt wasn't cheap.
So, how did you guys find roblox? I needed something to fill the void after runescape fell to shit and I stumbled upon it. I'm a sucker for games with tradeable items and holiday events. The 2013 egg hunt was the best
What did you guys do for fun? Build places? Learn lua scripting? Invest in items, then trade out for USD?
I make like $300 a month just making shitty pics for "game devs" to use as advertisements. Its probably because everyone else on the site is an 8 year old, but I'm worshiped as a god for my shit stain art (pic related)
I used to just play on tycoon servers for hours until I maxed out every item and then went to another one. And while i waited for money to farm I would play obstacle courses because the winner/admin zones were the shit.
I could cash out for $8000 USD whenever. Its so fucking easy to make money on this game, you just need to learn a mediocre skill like building or art. You can make even more if you learn scripting and make games on your own
My freinds son does this all fucking day and I've told him his sons autistic and he got pissy. And when he isnt playing it hes watching youtube videos of other people playing it and laughing with his extra chromosome huehue
Feel bad cause kid gets fucked with constantly at his school cause hes not right but my freind refuses to acknowledge it
Things have changed a lot since then anon
I dunno why i made my guy look like ness when i never played earthbound at that age. smash brothers?
But that's what makes them so fun to mess with, anon.
I second this question.
If I take all the time I fuck around on 4chan and spend it making shitty things for autistic kids to buy and I could make more than I do now then how the fuck do you do it?
You're all still shit.
Theo is still shit at the harmonica.
See you all next summer.
Its insanely easy to piss off kids in the forums. Anything even slightly controversial will set them off like a tumblr landwhale on father's day. Anything will work really. Telling them that roblox is a rip-off of minecraft really seems to get under their skin
I remember getting 100,000 in game currency for some shitty hat I didn't want to sell for two years.
Then I lost it because I traded an item for 20,000 instead of 200,000
No fucking warnings, no nothing.
It's a literal cash-cow
>he was concerned that his son bought a really rare item and traded it for one quarter of what he paid for it minutes after getting it because he's buying items purely on impulse with little thought to what he's getting
Better get him checked out, he should know basic math skills by now.
I see my brother get into this shit. Constantly talking about all theses game modes. Really want to give him some quality vidya, he's into all the shit kids today are. So here's my question, is that new Natuto Game that came recently any good
Fun fact: You can get payed for Roblox.
Not $50 a month, $5G+ a month.
All you have to do is know basic lua...or exploit their terrible community of autists who want to flush themselves down a toilet or play a GMod Clone
Learn how to script in lua
Its a lot harder than learning how to invest in items, but if you make a fun game you can earn anywhere from $1000 - $15000 per month. Its insane
LET ME GET INTO THIS
2007 IS WHEN I STARTED, IT WAS BEAUTIFUL
THE COMMUNITY WAS STILL SOMEWHAT SMALL BUT BIG ENOUGH TO HAVE ENOUGH CONTENT TO PLAY
THERE WERE SEVERAL TOP DEVELOPERS WHO MADE ORIGINAL AND FUN CONTENT
BUT THEN IT ALL WENT TO SHIT
IN 2008 THERE WAS A MASSIVE SURGE OF PEOPLE JOINING THE GAME AND ALL OF THE CUSTOM GAMES JUST DIED
UBERUBERT MADE A GAME CALLED BREAD TYCOON WHICH WAS PRETTY FUN
BUT GUESS WHAT
500 PEOPLE JUST TOOK THE SCRIPTS OFF OF THE COMMUNITY POOL AND MADE SHITTY RESKINS OF THE SAME EXACT GAME
THERE ORIGINALLY WERE A COUPLE OBSTACLE COURSES
BUT GUESS WHAT
10000 PEOPLE JUST TOOK THE SAME SHITTY OBSTACLE COURSE SECTIONS AND REARRANGED THEM WITH NO THOUGHT OR ORIGINALITY
THE GAME WAS FUCKING AWFUL AND THERE WERE ONLY A COUPLE GOOD DEVELOPERS STILL OUT THERE, I WAS ACTUALLY FRIENDS WITH ONE OF THEM
BUT IT GOT WORSE
NOW I'M NOT TOO SURE WHAT HAPPENED FOR THE MOST PART IN THE GAMES, BECAUSE I SPENT MOST OF MY TIME ON THE OFF TOPIC BOARD ON THE FORUMS (AKA CHILD FRIENDLY /b/) BUT LATE 2008 THE "CAFES" AND SHITTY SOCIAL CLUB WITH NO THOUGHT PUT INTO THEM STARTED SHOWING UP
ONLINE DATING TOOK A PRESENCE
AND THE SITE DIED
EVEN THE FORUMS SLOWLY BECAME A SHADOW OF IT'S FORMER SELF
IT'S FUCKING DEAD
NOT TO MENTION THE MODS BECAME INCREASINGLY FASCIST AND I'VE GOT LIKE 50 BANS UNDER MY BELT BECAUSE NIGGA THEY GEY
Its ok anon, embrace the autism. fester in it.
>these are the people browsing /v/ now
I just started trying to learn it like a week ago and I can already do some intermediate stuff. I've been learning from a friend who's REALLY good at it. We made $250 off this game before Halloween ended and popularity died out.
Here I am. And yes, I wear my fedora proudly.
One time my account got deleted for helping an admin of the site fix an exploit that let players buy any non limited item for 70% off. Another admin banned me immediately after finding out I bought like 20 high priced items. The admin I helped out was pretty nice and went out of his way to get my account back.
My little cousins are crazy for Roblox, too. I don't know what the appeal is, but then again I was obsessed with FreeArcade when I was a kid, and I'm sure that in hindsight those games were pretty shit even though I loved them. I kind of admire how kids can have fun with something so simple and primitive.
I've had like 3 alt accounts, 1 probably has 5 bans, one's permed, and I don't even remember the third
And my main's actually been IP banned for a couple days
I'm the only person that I know of during the '07-'10 period that's been IP banned and came back
The only reason my main isn't deletes is because I mooched off of builder's club for the 3 or so years
Also I'm pretty sure the bans don't count pre-2009 for some reason
And who was the admin that you helped? Anyone from 2010 or previous? I might know of him
You think that's bad?
>11 year old cousin comes visit with his family for a week
>it's his birthday

>he plays it for 3 minutes
>doesn't play it again

>tell him no
>tells his dad
>uncle tells my mom and she bitches at me
>buy him a game double the amount I spent the previous day out of mom's request
>after they leave he spams me on steam every single day asking for TF2 items

>threatens to tell his dad
>continue ignoring him

>the spamming goes on for a month
>mom gets mad at me again and tells me I need to be more courteous to him.
>back to the spam
>few months later gets so fed up that he gets angry at me and deletes me
the 2000 kids are literally fucked in the brain
i still come on once in a while to play semi fun games like whatever floats your boat and murder mystery and shit
You smell underage, just like anyone in this thread
