ROBLOX: The Father of all Metaverses

Roblox is the THE major player in the Metaverse Industry. What shaped an idea is follow by many others.

Sometimes we gotta think back at how things started and they obviously started with Roblox shaping the vision of a Metaverse into something real.

[ ... ] Our vision from the start was to build an entirely new category of human coexperience—nothing less than the realization of the next phase of human interaction. We imagined an online space where people from anywhere in the world could share experiences with friends, just as they would in person. [ ... ]

Following this quote, I can see Core, Crayta, DotBigBang and other in this idea of a Metaverse. We do this to shape the future of gaming, to create a world that is connected, a world which you can live in as you would do in real life, except you got superpowers and super cool visual effects and can fly and fight baddies and get hyper rich and lead your own empires and anything else super amazing you cannot do in real life.


The only real ehancement of the Term Metaverse that's left to achieve, from my perspective, is connecting all those big metaverses with each other so we get a real Metaverse: "In futurism and science fiction, the metaverse is a hypothetical iteration of the Internet as a single, universal and immersive virtual world that is facilitated by the use of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) headsets. In colloquial use, a metaverse is a network of 3D virtual worlds focused on social connection."


Let's be honest, there is no comparable Metaverse that does the Job to be it as good as Roblox. Started some decades ago, Roblox became THE thing in gaming scoring Top Placements in all kind of categories. We should not abandon the Idea that we, most Metaverses, origin from this huge Project that took over the world in a glimpse of..well, in several years. It takes effort, time, ambition and love to what you do to achive such a big success like Roblox did and any other Metaverse should not try to compete with the Father of all active Metaverses, but standout of the crowd with something that Roblox was not able to create. Keep in mind on whos shoulders our Metaverses are built.
