Roblox offers a wide variety of games for all ages. Children can participate in creating, exploring and interacting with other players on this platform, which helps to develop their imagination, creativity and social skills.
However, Roblox is not completely safe for kids. Although Roblox has taken a series of measures to help children play games in a safe environment, including strict moderation and regulation mechanisms, and prohibiting games that are serious physical or psychological abuse, pornographic, violent. There’re still some potential dangers for kids while playing Roblox.
Parents need to keep an eye on child’s activities on this platform.
Roblox has banned a lot of games, such as the original version of Shedletsky's Dirty Place, MeepCity, which are filled with adult contents. But we can still find some inappropriate games in this platform. The following is a list of horror, violent, and pornographic games that are not suitable for kids and are still not banned in 2023:
Dead Silence is one of the scariest games on Roblox. It is a story-based multiplayer game. Players play the role of investigators in this game. The task is to find out the truth of a murder. The game is full of horror elements, giving players a more immersive experience. But younger kids might be intimidated by it.
Alone in Dark House is a horror adventure game. Players play as detectives in this game. They can play this game alone or invite other players to join them. The task is to find out what happened in each murder in the abandoned house. Players will also discover a scary secret about a family during their investigation. This game combines story element and walking mechanics with a lot of scares. I think it is one of the inappropriate Roblox games for kids.
Don’t be fooled by the cute name of this game. In fact, this is a horror game and inappropriate for kids. In it, you play as a policeman who must find the missing George Piggy. However, George becomes a murderous pig and he will hold you hostage.
Concos in Roblox is a sex game. Player in the virtual space can talk about inappropriate content such as sex, drugs, alcohol, and they can even have virtual sex in it. Exposure to adult content in childhood and adolescence is bad for young person’s physical and mental development.
Centicon is one of the inappropriate games on Roblox, which is for 18+ users. Kids in this game just have a dance party first, but they don't just dance. Players can also do a variety of dirty activities. For younger children, they may not even know what they are doing in the game, but this inappropriate play will undoubtedly have a long-term negative impact on them.

Combat Wariors is a fast-paced fighting game on Roblox. The game inspiration is from Blood Flow and Criminality. Players in this game gain experience by killing other players in gory and violent ways. Fighting games are fun, but I think Combat Wariors might be too violent for young children.
Survive the Killers is a violent and horror game created by Slyce Entertainment. In this game, you will be randomly selected to be a survivors or a killer. If you are a survivor, you need to evade the killer and save your teammates to escape together, while if you are a killer, you need to eliminate as many survivors as possible before they escape or the timer runs out. That sounds interesting. But it contains high levels of violence and terror. The game is inappropriate for kids.
Mortem Metallum is also a fighting game on Roblox. Players use weapons to kill other opponents to gain the victory. This game is a bit bloody. The violent behavior in it may also bring psychological problems to children.
Phantom Forces is a first-person shooter game developed by StyLiS Studios. Is it appropriate for kids? The answer is definitely no. There is too much violence in it. In this game, players use various guns, grenades, knife and even machetes to kill others. And it is one of the bloodiest games on Roblox.
As parents, it is important to monitor and guide child's gaming activities on the Roblox platform and ensure that they only play kids friendly games. Participating in games that are inappropriate for kids may lead them to imitate violent or inappropriate behavior in the games, negatively affect their mental and physical health, become addicted to online games, etc.
