RuneScape is a Java-programmed MMORPG made by Jagex. With over 9mil free players and more than 850k paying members, RuneScape is among the most popular online games in the world. RuneScape offers both free and subscription content and is supposed to be accessible from any location with an Internet connection, the farther away, the more lag you receive.
RuneScape is divided into the Kingdoms of Misthalin, Asgarnia, and Kandarin, the tropical island Karamja, the Kharidian Desert, the Wilderness, and some other areas. Players can travel throughout the game world on foot, using magical teleportation, gnome gliders, spirit trees, fairy rings, and other methods of transport. Each place has different types of monsters, materials, and quests to entertain and challenge players.
Players can engage in combat with other players or with monsters, complete quests, or increase their experience in any of the available skills. Players can also interact with each other through trading, chatting, or playing mini-games.
New players begin in a secluded area populated only by other beginners, Tutorial Island. They are led on a set path where they learn most of the skills needed to succeed into the real game. In this tutorial, you can get all the non-member skills up apart from RuneCrafting and Crafting. After completing the tutorial, players can access information from tutors located in the towns they explore. These NPCs can replace some basic equipment items if necessary. Since it tak...
Warning: This game sucks.Seriously, if you want to throw your life down the drain, there are better ways. Like heroin. You play it once, think "OK, this game has shit ass graphics, horrible gameplay, the worst lag I have ever seen in my entire life, but there's lots of things to do." So you continue playing it, until you become completely obsessed. So obsessed, some people bring ther labtops to school to play runescape at lunch and spares, stay up until three in the morning playing runescape in their closets and actually pay money to play. If you play Runescape, stop now. There are better things to life.
Defintion: A game developped by Jagex, affectionately refferred to as "Fagex". The game itself is a jumble of terrible graphics, awful gameplay and the most repetetive skill system I have ever seen. All you do is click on things! But it doesn't stop there. Oh no. The community is the worst I've ever seen, and that includes MapleStory. Let me paint you a picture.

a very dangerous,addicting,life ruining game!!!
runescape has ruined my life permanently. i probably have the worst case of it here.i lost almost all my freinds,and the ones i didnt lose are so close to being gone they basicly are. i had the worst social life ever. soon my grades dropped so severly i failed the 9th grade,the first time in my life staying back, soon by the next year i dropped out and became depressed not knowing why the hell i was doing so bad at life. i would come home and sit on the computer all day to regain my happieness not knonwing runescape was the one causeing this in the first place. i was a lvl 101 with 85 mining 99 fletching 99 cooking 80 smithing 4 santas,knew almost everyhitng there is to know about runescape,basicly the lifless nerd. i sat on my computer all day and thought that i was just bored and liked the game.soon after my first year playing runescape i got arrested for trying to be my social self again and acting cool to gain freinds back. after tho i realized that i would never be my true self ever again.i knew i needed help but i didnt know where to search,i didnt know runescape could acualy be addicting it sucked me in way to fast with a tight grip.the only thing i had on my mind was suicude, i thought i had a mental ilness that coudnt be cured. i thought my life was ruined and could never be repaired, i thought the only way out of this misery was to kill myself.well my mom which lived in florida(i lived in new hampture with my dad) found out about this and was so pissed she sent m...more...
Let me put it this way.
I pressed random on urban dictionary, and it led me to this.
I hadn't played in THREE YEARS. I had forgotten about RuneScape. And then I spent seven hours straight playing yesterday.
I forgot to eat because I was playing RuneScape.
An extremely addictictive game that actually will harm you.
I was introduced to runescape fall 2008, and from then on I was hooked. I played for hours and hours daily for 11 months until I noticed somthing was wrong. After a bit of investigating, I found that my iq had dropped by 20 points(I have been putting myself threw a sort of iq therapy that I literally pray will work), My grades, previously straight A's, had dropped to c's and b's, My behavior became uncontrolled and I developed bipolar disorder(no joke I have been diagnosed), my previously abundant ability to read, write and create has dropped(once again I am trying to put myself through a sort of therapy to solve this), and finally, I became a social butt.
This is NO JOKE. This game is dangerous to people minds and bodies. If you decide to play this game(which I advise not to), BE CAREFUL!
Me: Hey guess what I got an A in Latin
Friend: Me too!
After starting Runescape
Friend: I got another A, how about you
Me:...I got a c, but managed to get a whip
After quitting runescape and therapy
Me: Oh yeah!! look at my A!!
Me: Oh thats right, everyone hates me now
Formerly a great game, with all kinds of mature people and interesting things to do, now after jagex partnered up with
, a website whose target viewers are 8-12, it's become a disaster area. I can't count on my fingers and toes the many times I was either called a noob, the many times I was challenged to fights in real life, and the times I was just literally treated like shit. Come on, I went there to get away from shit I have to deal with in real life, and put up with twice as much if the shit. It used to be where you could discuss all kinds of real life events, like religion and politics, now its
"Dood, u get the new yu-gee-oh cardz"
"Ya, dere totaly awesom!!"
Jagex just loves to baby...ahem, I mean, cater to the newbs and remove the things that made Runescape a fun game to play, to a game that even a newborn could play. I can't even smith in peace now, without being called a noob or teased or something like that.
Another thing. Everything awesome is for the members only. I was a member for a short time, and hell, it was a GREAT experiance. Almost everone was mature there, had some sort of decency, then it ran out. And I was awakened to how FUCKING HORRIBLE free play is. Nothing there but
"Free stuf plz, I juzt died,"
"Looking for hot, rich bf/gf,"
"Can u get me quest itms plzzzzzz?"
Now I don't mind
Dear god. I just read 15 pages of "definitions" and I'm utterly shocked. 99/100 people are being haters. Runescape isn't a black hole that will butt rape your soul into oblivion. It's something you play when you are bored.
To the losers who actually have grades drop from it, you are pathetic. I find no addictive quality in it, whatsoever, unless you are some crackhead or just plain lonely.
Not everyone goes around saying: Fr33 st00f pl0x :D
It's something that kills time faster then nearly anything except for Xboxlive (which still freaks me out the time warp in that shit, seriously...) I know quite a few people who play, and I'm in highschool. Not a SINGLE ONE has had a grade drop or lost any friends.
I log on to merchant an item or two, check on my kingdom, and occasionally do a holiday or limited event. Every now and again, like a weekend or vacation where nobody is home, I go on for maybe 2-3 hours to wait for people on Live
Addictive? One time I quit just to see how long I could take it. Wasn't hard at all. Give the game a shot, and if you already are the ignorant assholes you seem to be, your grades won't change for shit. But if your just the normal go with the flow stereotype, go for it. It's a nice way to kill time, not kill friends.
Runescape- a decent enough mmorpg
with a failing community, but all in all a nice way to kill time or relieve boredom. Give it a shot, skeptics.
