Roblox is an enormous platform with a diverse range of games to choose from! We understand it can be overwhelming and difficult to find a fun game, so the “Roblox Thoughts,” featuring Sophia Nakakura ’25 (purplmurplsuprturtl), Julia Frazier ’25 (paulblartmallcop2000), Maria Herrmann ’25 (god_maria1600), West Lenart ’25 (abidingwesty613), and Luca Calgaro ’25 (PillPopperzKaren), were tasked to rate each game out of 5, and share their thoughts on different popular Roblox games to figure out which one stands superior. The five games featured in this article are Murder Mystery 2Shark BiteFashion FamousEpic Minigames, and Arsenal.

Why Should You Listen to Us?

The members of Roblox Thoughts are a group of skilled and experienced video game players, especially when it comes to the platform and games on Roblox. The core five members of Roblox Thoughts have been carefully selected thanks not only to their experience with video games but also for their insightful thoughts and charming personality, hence the name “Roblox Thoughts.” 

Game 1: Murder Mystery 2

Murder Mystery 2, the reboot of the original game Murder Mystery, is considered a Roblox classic. With approximately 6 million likes, 17 million favorites, and 12.5 billion visits and counting, Murder Mystery 2 has become one of the most popular games on Roblox.

In this fan-favorite game, one person plays the murderer and another plays the sheriff, the rest of the people are innocents. The innocents must run from the murderer to stay alive. If the sheriff shoots the murderer, the sheriff and the innocents win. If the murderer kills everyone, the murderer wins. Finally, if the murderer kills the sheriff, the gun is dropped, and an innocent can pick up the gun to eliminate the murderer.

Here is what we had to say about this game:
