Rune scape is a highly addictive game that I myself have played and takes place in Old World Europe. The player controls an avatar who gains money, raises skills, fights monsters and other players.
I began playing in 2004 at the begging of my cousin when I was 12. All I remember is that i saw that every one was better and or had better stuff than me, and this drove me crazy for a year I spent doing nothing other than raising skills I remember waking up at 4 am and going to bed at3 because I was playing this game. I got to lvl 70 combat with 3 mill in assets. Then I got hacked and every thing taken I was so depressed I quit at the beginning of my freshman year in high school. However Late my junior year I was bored during thanksgiving break and I played again allot had changed, but it was still addictive as ever all I wanted to do was have the best Armour possible so I could show it off and feel good about myself, Which I did. Then I tried for a skill cape and I got halfway there when I realized WHAT THE FUCK AM I DOING! Im spending hours a day doing something I hide from my friends just so that other losers I don't know will praise me, So I stopped seriously playing. I still play sometimes but only if I am really bored and want to play a mini game or hunt someone down in pvp. I can honestly say once and for all I have kicked the addiction, and if you are like me I hope you can wake up and see what really matters and live your life not Jagex'es cause when your,e dead no one will remember your rune scape account.
