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.
Typical Runescape screen messages

dragonslayer67: plz b my gf. give gps
girliemage78 (who's really a guy)K
dragonslayer67: (gives GP) K now gimme cex plz
(girliemage78 runs away)
As you can see, the scene is disturbing to say the least. Everyone is either spazzy 10 year olds, 50 year old perverts or horny teenagers who can't get it in real life so have Runescape "cex". Even the nicest person will have a ton of people either in game sexually assaulting them or calling them noobs. Not so pleasent.
If that doesn't kill it for you, this will. Tim* was an athletic, fun to be around guy when me and my friends started playing this game. We all quickly moved on to more fun, less addicting MMO's. Not Tim though. Tim became sucked into the game. At first it wasn't too bad. He still had a girlfriend, was on the soccer and basketball team and hung out with us. This began to change. First, he stopped hanging out, going to movies etc. Then he dumped his girlfriend for the sole reason "She took up too much time." He dropped out of school teams for the same reasons. All Tm would talk about is his Runescape character, his smithing level and his "Runescape GF" who we eventually found out was a guy. (I know, gross.) He stopped eating, to the point where he would eat maybe a meal a day up in his room. He stopped washing himself, and the acne that developped was horrendous. He stayed home from school to play. Tim's parents eventually found out what was happening and took away his computer. Tim told us he wanted to kill them. He stole a labtop to fuel his addiction. Tim lost 50 pounds. A good looking guy was now completely hideous. He failed seven subjects on his report card. Eventually, his parents found out about the stolen labtop. They were furious. Tim was kept in his room for two weeks, under supervision to make sure he hadn't smuggled in a labtop. He tried to escape three times. Eventually, we managed to coax him into going cold turkey. Tim was lucky: he only threw away four monthes of his life. He has returned to normal now, and is an Honour roll student and captain of the Soccer team. But there are other people that haven't. Don't start.

Runescape is the worst MMO I have ever played.
Runescape is mopre addictive than crack cocaine
this game reminds me of people playing snkae on cell phones. once youve played it and you get bored later, its the first thing you think of doing. you know its a waste of time but you cant stop. i advise you to NEVER play this unless you want it to consume your soul... i wish i hadnt gotten into it...
runescape has a better chance of taking over the world than hitler had...
Only one of the current Free Massively Multiplayer Games. It it probably the most easy to find and start. The most monotonous and oddly additive game I have come across so far.
A "runescape" is what you call any game that is just a knock off of anything else.
You can call anything a "runescape" if it has any of the underlieing problems:
1. over crowding
2. Too many 12 years olds on all the time
3. General lag or bad graphics.
You know, this game might become like runescape too , with all the overcrowding and lag.
Runescape is a very addicting game. I used to play Neopets which i thik is gay now. But this game brought me away from everything, my friends and family. Now i go upstair and the first thing i do is play runescape. I now give my self more time to spend with my family. This game is addicting and before you play you should no when its time to stop.
Dad:hey lets go play some b-ball
son:No, i am working on runescape maby later.
three days go by
dad:now can we play some b-ball
son:No im still working on runescape
dad: you have been on it for days its time to stop!
dad turns off pc
son:i hate you i will never speak to you again!
Ignoring all the other comments, this is seriously one of the most addicting things (not just games) that I have ever done. I seriously recommend that you never start playing. Recently a kid sued JaGex for $5000 because he didn't go to school or anything, he just played this game. Seriously from someone who is actually addicted to this game and has been for over 2 years: DON'T PLAY THIS GAME!
The most addictive game ever created, its gotta use subliminals
An MMORPG loved by some, hated by others. Most people who critisize this game don't give it a good chance. I personally did not care for it the first six months of playing. I would've stopped if i didn't get addicted. Now after about 1 1/2 years, I'm really starting to like it. And also, people who complain about the graphics arent true gamers. Graphics do make up a game, but not COMPLETELY. I personally would give this game a 9 out of 10. I pay a few hundred dollars on gamecube and ps2 games a year, and I still end up liking runescape better. It's also free =)
Addicted player: Runescape is awesome!
Game Critic: This game is horrible, I didn't give it a good chance though.
An online adventure game that turns normal aspiring human beings into brainwashed robots.more...
I myself know from experience; i played this game for over 4 years starting in 2002. Let me tell you, in my 19 years of life, those 4 years were the darkest, most desolate years ever. I quit soccer two years ago to make more time to play. I ditched guitar. At this time two years ago, (1:37AM), my "rune night" would have begun and continued well into the afternoon of the next day.
The feeling while playing this game is ironically satisfactory. While playing, you think of nothing but the game. Personal and worldy affairs don't mean a thing. In fact, the most important thing on your mind is when and how you're going to get that next combat level. A news report about a bridge collapsing in Minnesota and plunging 50 cars hundereds of feet into the Mississippi river won't phase you. If you're away from runescape, i.e. in school, you find yourself thinking and fantasizing about the game, as if you're going to have sex with an incredibly gorgeous woman when you get home. Oddly enough, after playing, you feel a a feeling of resentment, from yourself and the declining number of people you know, regardless if those people you know play Runescape or not.
The addictive quailities in this game are stifling, as simple movements of the finger are ONLY required to play this game. Yet the game is a drug. The fact that goals in runescape are extremely infatuating to achieve an...
