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
I found a new game the other day, its really good, only problem is i fear its becoming the next runescape. You, know, over-priced , half-done and laggy as hell.
1. A Brittish version of World of Warcraft, Final Fantasy, Midevil Age lifestyle, stereotypes and the world's population of 12 year olds put into a blender.
2. gateway for 12 year olds for online dating
3. Mindless clicking processes put into one game.
4. Slang for a really poorly made game.
5.A new Japanese Fad (Possibly, yet still undefined.)
Background and review:
You are only able to be a human adventurer, seeking all the natural human needs. You have access to many minigames, over 20 skills and only so few actual things to do that are entertaining.
Due to the lack of any form of creativity from the Jagex Studios, many of the things in their game involve WoW knock-offs, ethnic stereotypeing, hallucinogenic 12 year old plot engineering and of course lack of physical limitations and logic.
Most originality is composed of the Japanese college students with too much time on their hands. This is literally traceable everywhere. Even from the most European influenced culture there manages to be easily identified as "Made in Japan". In example there are axes the size of surfboards that weigh in at 200 pounds, and a Sword possible bigger than weighs more. Each of them swung like they are feathers.
The game is a Java browser game, meaning the game is limited to the amount of graphics it can display without killing your computer. a 2000 person limit is made for each server, in this case there are 160 servers. Therefore, 320000 people can play at once....
Runescape is an addicting game it consumes the young mind evry child who goes on it cant come off its very annoying trust me i know i have been addicted to this game for 2 years. but i have stopped now
Jordan:wow look at my new totally cool runescape account with 30 mage and 1 strenth
School bully:im going to kill you so much you pee blood
An awful MMORPG where you pay $60 a year for GRAPHICS! Why do you people throw your money down the drain?? It's addicting, too, but somehow I got pissed off at the game and left the game for a few months, so now I don't play it anymore.
Boy: Dad, can I become a member on RS?
Dad: First of all, what the hell is RS, and how much is it?
Boy: RS is, Runescape, the best MMORPG in the world, and it costs $5 a month. If I become a member, I will PWN!
Dad: *thinks to himself* "So that's why you are always in your room, getting fatter every day." Son, I have to say no. I won't waste $60 a year on some extra graphics on a game just so you can show off. I advise you to quit the game, because you don't get exercise while you are glued to the PC. Why don't you go outside?
Son: Aww, man! Well Dad, since I can't get what I want, I'll just go kill some goblins on RS to wear off my resentment to you.
A crappy online game which is only popular because of its free status.
"They updated runescape yesterday! The graphics went from stick figures to claymation! oh yeah!" *high fives*
An online game that, quite literally, could be cultivated and sold to crackheads because of it's massive addictiveness. Also, the graphics look like they were ripped directly from any game for Super Famicon or Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Populated entirely by people who think that by playing that they are socially superior to everyone else, while in reality, they are all just total n00bs. 5 out of 5 medical professionals agree that Runescape can cause extreme loss of sense of reality and immense n00bishness. Anyone who already hasn't had 3/4's of their brain devoured by this uber-lame "MMORPG" should go out and play Kingdom of Loathing...And, if by chance, you have started playing, I suggest you kill yourself and put yourself out of your misery.
