I used to play this lame ass game, it really touched my social life to where i would want to stay home instead of go make out with girls at the movies or something sweet. I managed to quit and I havent played in about a year and i really dont miss it. Don't even try it out, if you see an ad with runescape on it close the damn page. I even paid to become a member, and my friends never found out i played because if they did i would become a loser. since i quit i gained 53 pounds of muscle and have a really hot girlfriend, and am a sophomore in high school playing varsity basketball, all because i quit and found better things to do in life. Seriously in this game they all call people noobs which makes them sound like a homosexual, you go into this place called varrock where in the center you will find people paying runescape money for someone to be their girlfriend, only to be crushed when there "girlfriend" runs off with the money or turns out to be a boy. I actually saw a case where in the back of some block looking castle (aka lumbridge castle) a dude had payed 3m gp for a girl to become his girlfriend. heres what i saw
boy: i gave you 3m gp so i guess your my gf now
girl: i have to tell you something.
girl: IM A BOY! YOU'VE JUST BEEN PUNK'D
*girl runs off with money*
boy: i spent 3 months fishing to get that money!
i seriously fell off my chair laughing
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.
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!
Game Critic: This game is horrible, I didn't give it a good chance though.
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 and are much more convinient to achieve than real life goals are what make this game addicting.
Luckily, the players are in Runescape are starting to decline in terms of maturity and decency, which is helping to draw some players away. But this is not enough. If you want to quit playing, it has to hit you. I sat on my rooftop on a cold Decemeber night at 3AM after playing for hours and reflected on what Runescape does for me. The answer is it doesn't mean a god damn thing, even though those skill goals are drawing you back to the game. The thought of wasting hours to fuel a ridiculous addiction plagued me, and finally i said fuck it. I wanted to go back inside and play the game so badly, and I did. This time i took EVERY item and owned and dropped it. Made a bogus and lengthy password and recovery questions by typing in the answers while closing my eyes and my addiction was cured.
That was four months ago. I have not been back, and never will be back. My account is locked by my own doing and will forever be lost. This game came close to ruining my life, had i not taken action. Bottom line: if you are addicted and know you have to quit, do it now while the thought is fresh and before you are thrusted back into the lies of Runescape. Act now, destroy your account, and you will be cured.
