If I may interject with some sense...
Yes, I dislike runescape. I'm not thick enough to mindlessly sit slumped on a chair whileing away the hours watching my 'character' endlessly hack at a collection of blocks that is meant to be a tree. However, I do not try to force this view upon everybody. Not everybody who plays runescape is a nerd. Conversely, not all nerds play runescape! I used to play runescape and I met some genuinely friendly people. But I did also meet quite a few d*ckheads.
My view is, weirdly, that you are entitled to your view. However, PLEASE, PLEASE, consider your own wellbeing - runescape consumes your entire life!!
I have met some runescape addicts in the 'real world' (an idea that many of the aforementioned addicts find hard to understand) and I was stunned at their lack of intelligence. One in particular (naming no names) would always come up to me and start talking at me about 'rs' as if I cared. So, not wishing to upset him, I would drop him hints to try and make him SHUT UP (it was really that exasperating). A normal person would most likely have understood, but he just plouhed on, blissfully unaware of the fact that I was within inches of grabbing the nearest metal girder and clobbering his head until he ceased to be. Other nerds I have met seem unable to grasp the concept that I might actually *gulp* HATE their beloved runescape. The example below demonstrates.
In conclusion, Many people who play runescape are friendly, popular people. Unfortunately, the majority are brain-dead, square-eyed, friendless, lifeless, irritating, boring, miserable, freaky and altogether pathetic wimps, nerds and geeks.
Now, about that example...
Me; I've told you many times before, I don't care about what kind of virtual armour you have. I HATE RUNESCAPE!!!
Nerd/Addict; But I've got full rune!!
Me; Do I look like I give a toss?
Nerd/Addict; It's really cool, see, cos I've got like, like, 200k!
Me; I DO NOT CARE!
Nerd/Addict; But I've got full rune!!
Me; AAAAAAAAAAARGH!!!!!!!......

Too many people grow too addicted to this game It chews things up and spits 'em out. Every account that starts will one day be banned, and many people have gotten banned accounts, some people are so obsessed that they cry about it, others say, "Oh, well, it was getting boring anyways..." But that's usually not the case. Everyone I know who has gotten addicted to runescape lost friends and other things because of this wretched game, I give great advice to all who play runescape, STOP PLAYING IT!!!! Parents don't even know what they're kids are saying and learning on there...
Kid gets home from school, sneaks upstairs to play runescape. Mom calls for dinner.
Mom: Dinner!
Kid: Mom, let me finish this up on runescape!
Mom: O.K. Five more minutes!
Kid writes on runescape: My mom is a living devil, I g2g soon, For, "dinner"
Long time later
Mom: I said it's dinner time
Kid: Mom, i'm almost done
Mom comes up and turns off computer
Kid: Mom, i hate you and im never looking or talking or listening to you again!!!!!!

End of Story...

A pretty good game, which was created entirely with Java. It's three dimensional. The object of the game is what makes it so good, because the whole point of the game is whatever you want it to be. You can make friends, do quests, or train in various skills, such as mining, smithing, crafting, fishing, woodcutting, etc.

The only complaints about this game that I have are that almost everything is limited to members, such as most of the quests, the map space, and alot of other cool stuff. Also, everybody calls each other a noob for some reason. The graphics might also not appeal to all people, but if you look past the graphics, you'll see that its a pretty fun game, but you need to know when to stop playing.

(By the way, I might become a member by next month!)
Immature player: 5hu7 up n00b!
Newbie: plz give me stuff i died plz
*** Newbie attempts to trade a level 79 repeatedly***
***Level 79 gives newbie full bronze armor and walks off***

My name in Runescape is Lord Arcane3, feel free to add me to your list.

An entirely dumb as hell game created by Jagex Ltd. that encircles lives of children. Basically everyone that plays this game hasn't seen sunlight in 4 months besides walking to their school busstop, and constantly talks to their friends who really don't care about how they leveled up and are training their crafting skill to make dragonstone jewelry. Most of the time, kids playing Runescape have never seen a better game online, and enjoy thinking that they can get a girl other than their "GFs" that they give online gifts to because it's their one way of escaping the reality that they can't get a date.
OMG dude I just got 72 smithing!
Good for you, I don't care about dumb-as-hell Runescape.
Shut up or I'll own you in the Wildy!

runescape has to be thee most bastarding addictive online game in the world. i began playing it a couple years back and it soon became my life. all i did was eat, occasionally sleep and play runescape. i lost contact with my friends & family. my family began calling me a recluse because i never left the house except to go to school. my friends began to think i was scared to leave the house or something, that i had mental problems, when all alone it was the addictiveness of that game.
i was only free of the game when my computer broke for over a month and i was no longer able to play the game.. i know steer clear of that game as much as possible!!

runescape is full of little teenage boys who have obviously not discoverd porn yet, and they go around thinking they are big hard men becuase they have a combat level of 100+. there are now over a hundred different servers/worlds to play in as thousands of people all over the world love to play it. its pathetic and im ashamed to say i played the game, even though it has to be one of the best ideas ever..

so i both love and hate Jagex for their fantastic and mind destroying game..
Bob: you playing runescape again?

Bob's Girlfriend: yes, i need to get my fishing level to 100, sorry but you wont be having sex for a couple of weeks. ive only got time for 2hrs sleep and a couple of meals a week.

Bob: fine *sighs*

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: pAYING 6000 GPS FOR CEX!
Iamcoolknight: THAT WAS MY $#%$IN COAL NOOB!
pwnerguy11: Lol u only lvl 10
Iamcoolknight: I HAVE LEVEL 108 BUT HE BAN! NOOB! MOTHER *&^#IN NOOB!
pwnerguy11: Lol you $%# I pwn you
pwnerguy11:F
Pwnerguy11:U
Pwnerguy11:C
Pwnerguy11 K You noob!
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.

A game with addictive gameplay to some. To others (me) its just plain out boring. I really don't see whats so entertaining about doing the same thing over and over and over again. To some people thats their whole life. Same go's for Counter Strike.
