Runescape is a MMORPG which was created by Andrew Gower who founded Jagex Limited in 2001. While in development Runescape's previous name was DeviousMUD. When Runescape was released it had 2D graphics, however sometime around 2004 they released Runescape 2, which is the version of Runescape you can play at present day. The graphics were re-vamped into 3D graphics and gameplay value was better as Jagex had started bringing out new skills, The first of the new skills was Runecrafting which was very popular at the time and changed the way people played Runescape forever.
Despite many peoples views about this MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) I personally think that this game is a good game to play as it is fun, enjoyable, it passes time, some players in game are very competetive and finally, it has hundreds of quests to complete and 20+ skills to train. I have played Runescape since march 2003 and I still play. A lot of people seem to mention an addictive quality about Runescape. Personally I think Runescape isn't addictive I just think it is a good game that hooks you and entices you from the beggining moments that you start playing (That's a sign of a good game eh?). Overall Runescape is a GOOD GAME despite what people say (Or why would Runescape have over 100,000 members?) and I think it is worth giving it a try.
People with a low attention span should NOT play Runescape.
People under the age of 13 should NOT play Runescape.
People looking for BF/GF should NOT play Runescape.
People who have bad attitude problems should NOT play Runescape.
Runescape is a good game, there is no denying that. Yes you are entitled to your opinion, but your opinion doesn't mean anything seeing as Runescape has over 200,000 players and has been going for 7 years.
I am fed up of people saying that 'people who play Runescape are all nerds'. You get 'nerds' on MSN, Myspace, Wow, Youtube, HL2, CSS, Gaia, AIM, Xbox Live etc and I bet most of the people saying that use atleast one of the above.
