Roblox Game – Among Us, GTA, and Other Mind-Blowing Game Remakes
Roblox has exploded in popularity recently, and its massive user base has recreated games like Among Us, Fortnite, GTA, and others on the platform.
Roblox has recently gone through a renaissance, taking it from an awkward, LEGO-like experience into a gaming phenomenon that now rivals viral successes like Fortnite. The platform is built upon the creativity of its millions of users who have the ability to build custom games that they can sell or give away for free on the Roblox games store. Some of the most dedicated creators have even remade versions of other popular titles.
Roblox‘s popularity has ballooned over the past few years, taking its user base to more than 160 million monthly users. That has led to an expansive library of unique games that can’t be played anywhere else and fresh takes on existing franchises. It has become an online Pandora’s box.

The platform has been around since 2006, but some of the most stunning recreations of classic video games were created in recent years. Roblox has allowed its users to create such a wide array of content that they’ve made everything from a 3D version of Among Us to a rendition of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Here are five mind-blowing Roblox renditions of existing games.
Roblox Game Recreations: Among Us
The rise of the indie game Among Us proved that a simple, well-executed concept could become just as popular as any AAA launch. The original’s charming 2D art style has fueled a slew of Among Us fan art, but Roblox developers Wizard Studios decided to go the extra mile and remake The Skeld map in 3D.
Amongst Us lets up to ten users play a replica of Among Us on Roblox. Impostors can vent, Crewmates can call emergency meetings, and players need to use the in-game chat room to determine who’s the murderer in the group. It has done away with the game’s signature armless astronauts for more lifelike space explorers, but its popularity is still booming. Amongst Us has been played more than 183 million times since its release in September and is consistently being updated. Maybe once Among Us‘s Airship update arrives, Roblox players will get a rendition of it as well.
Roblox Game Recreations: Half-Life 2
Valve’s Half-Life 2 changed the way developers weave narratives into first-person shooters forever. The 2004 release is considered one of the most influential achievements in gaming history. Roblox developers’ team by the name Primitive Polygon has paid homage to the science fiction title by recreating snippets of it.
Half-Blox 2 features two locations from the original’s campaign, including a shot-for-shot reconstruction of its iconic opening sequence. It even comes with three multiplayer maps that Half-Life 2: Deathmatch fans will remember fondly. The only thing missing is a rendition of protagonist Gordon Freeman’s Gravity Gun, which let him fling objects at enemies.
The remake was released in February 2020 and has been played more than 3.5 million times since. Primitive Polygon announced that it would no longer be expanding the Half-Blox 2 and has shifted its focus to new projects.
Roblox Game Recreations – Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
While most Roblox experiences are somewhat limited in their scope, user WestCoastOshawott has single-handedly crafted a vast reimagination of Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. It includes three cities modeled after Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Las Vegas (including GTA‘s Grove Street), making it one of the largest Roblox projects.
The game allows up to 33 players to explore and wreak havoc across the virtual West Coast. Players can roam from city to city in the original vehicles and loot the same guns from the 2004 GTA launch. There aren’t any NPCs in this custom Roblox game, but gamers have total freedom to do anything from role-playing to large-scale shootouts. San Andreas has been visited more than 63,000 times and is an ongoing project that still receives updates today.
Roblox Game Recreations: Portal
Valve’s 2007 release of Portal is among one of the most beloved puzzle adventures of all-time. The original’s creative use of physics and environmental storytelling made it a must-play solo experience, and now it is one that’s available on Roblox. There’s even a version of the game that lets friends play together, just like in Valve’s sequel Portal 2.
Portal and Portal Together were created by user Homemade_Meal in 2020, and they’ve both been play millions of times since. The environments for both titles are simplistic, but the portal gun and portal animations are some of the most stunning Roblox assets in recent memory. Portal Together even allows for lobbies of up to six players, which is three times the number of users that can play Portal 2 simultaneously. This remake provides features that aren’t possible on the original release, which shows the level of attention that can go into custom Roblox games.
Roblox Game Recreations: Fortnite Galactus Event
While there might not be a comprehensive recreation of Fortnite in Roblox, the ItsODRJR Fan Group reenacted the entirety of the Marvel Galactus Event that took place in December 2020. Fortnite – Marvel Galactus Event [1/2] is the first half of the world event that transported the massive world-eating villain Galactus to the battle royal.
Players had a limited time window to log onto Fortnite and experience the comic-book mayhem, which means many people might have missed it. The Roblox recreation allows anyone who didn’t have time to see how Epic Games altered Fortnite for a day. Its Roblox counterpart has been played more than 2.3 million times since its release, and its creators are currently working on part two. The current version only lets up to five users view the Galactus event at once, so it won’t be the same as experiencing it with 99 other players in Fortnite.
These games prove that Roblox players can use the platform’s tools to make premium gaming experiences more accessible and even improve them in some cases. Their graphics and world design won’t surpass that of hundreds of developers at AAA studios. Still, these remakes are a promising sign of the type of jaw-dropping custom games Roblox‘s budding fanbase will create in the future.
