think of it like this: say your about to send someone at the store to buy you some games, and you tell them this: if there's Fortnite then then buy it, else if there's not fortnite but there's GTA 5 then buy the GTA 5 else just buy a carton of milk.

notice here, the first if indicates the preferred choice(in the example being buy Fortnite, the else if is the second preferred case if the first case cannot be satisfied(in the example being buying GTA), the else is basically the last resort if any of the previous cases cannot be met.

another example:

if Jailbreak is better than Mad City then


elseif MadCity:HasMoreContentThan(Jailbreak) then

Play(Mad City)

elseif MadCity == Jailbreak then



print("There's no fun games on roblox")


put the emphasis on the fact that you can have multiple elseifs

elseif (not else if) should be used when you want another condition before running code else should be used when you don't want another condition before running code
