Roblox’s surface is simple, but there are many subgenres that offer real-world lifestyles and experiences. One of the most popular and overlooked role-playing subgenres is that of Hood Games and RobangGames.
- Hood Games focus more on role-playing, which allows players to submerge themselves into Roblox’s equivalent of the hood and play out stories of their choosing. This could be finding a job, making friends or going to school.
- RobangGames leave role-playing behind and opt for more stereotypical and played-up hood-related activities. These include fighting for territories and causing chaos wherever it is possible, as well as the formation of gangs.

This list also includes a role-playing entrant. South London 2 (SL2), has become a fan-favorite hood game since its release in early 2020. Roblox’s SL2 hood game is the only one that can be played across the pond by US residents. It’s a fun part of the game for players.
The role-play activities within SL2 are endless—open businesses and hire employees or work for someone else, commit crimes to gain money and fame or enforce the law as a police officer, make friends with your neighbors or stay a lone wolf—the choice is yours!
Incorporating aspects from both Hood Games and Robang Games, The Hood allows players to role-play while also sticking to the more wild and dangerous side of this crime-ridden experience. Da Hood is the Hood’s main source of inspiration. The Hood does allow role-playing but focuses on guns, fighting and crime. Although the Hood has a lot of active players, it doesn’t have nearly as many as Da Hood. The Hood is still a great backup plan for when things get too crazy in its older predecessor.
