A widely known MMORPG created by Andrew Gower and Jagex with over 9 million players worldwide. 800,000 of the players have membership and pay roughly 5 dollars a month to gain access to much more than non-paying players can. You control a character in a medieval realm and try to advance skills (woodcutting, mining, magic, you get the idea.). There are quests to complete as well, ranging in difficulty and stupidity. Unlike other games, you can only play as a human, beginning at level three combat and can eventually become the highest possible, level 126.
The game is contantly frowned upon by many because of its poor graphics, amount of lag, and requiring simply clicking on random objects to achieve goals. It is also described as being HIGHLY ADDICTIVE, and can steal your life away fairly quickly. My advice: Never play if you haven't yet, you are the lucky ones. If you do play, have LIMITS! No more than three hours per day. Even that is too much. Always hang out with friends or go to a party (if given the chance) rather than runescape. Play when there is absolutely nothing to do. I play runescape, I follow my rules, and I like my life. I am an adept hockey player, one of the few who have had a 4.0 for many years in school, a golfer, a guitarist, and party enthusiast (involving crazy sex and jackassness). Overall, Runescape can be a rewarding experience when it is your last resort for something to do.
"Hey dude, let's go to the party at JJ's!"
"Sounds cool. I'm getting off runescape right now."
"Sure, I'll be waiting by the car."

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 my aunt (which also lived in new hampture)to basicly kidnap me and sent me to florida on a plane. i even almost got arrested at the airport trying to run away. i was so depressed and torn up,so messed up with illness and confusion i thought my life was truly over now,not only did i have no life,no freinds,no education,but i had no computer!! after about 3 months with no computer i started slowly coming back. 4 months i could see the change,and right now im on my 5th month,and i can proudly say i hate runescape. im not fully back yet no, but im doing a hell of alot better than i was.im starting to get my life back on track.now and i only have one thing to say about runescape. never ever get into it!!! it will completly ruin your life! if you think that i just took it to seroiusly or played to much then your worng. i started just like any other noob. i played nonemmeber about 1 hour a day,then soon 2 hours,then 3,and fianly at the end i played members up to 18 hours average a day!i think what hurt me the most is the withdrawl of it. you see what happens it you acualy get mentaly addicted to it,and your brain only realeses the chemical to make you happy when your playing runescape. when you stop and go back to real life,(withdrawl) it makes you feel as if somthing sad has happened and you cant even try to ba happy! its acualy not how nerdy or lifless you are but acualy,its a matter of luck whether your brain will kick into the addiction. i think personaly that runescape is a very dangerous game!everyone playing it should stop imeddeitly. to tell you the truth i would give my life away right now if i could put an end to runescape. i dont want this to happen to any more people. i have read stories from all over the world saying its taken there souls too,and we should do somthing about it! so im here to tell you my story,and hopfully you will read this before it happens to you too.

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.

Runescape is a game that just sucks up your soul and spits it out as a nerd version of yourself with no life. Too many imature 12 year olds playing, also geeks, people with no lives...and if you click the "down" button, that just proves my point. For all the people that think Runescape is an old laggy java game with too many imature middle schoolers, and click the "up" button, I pronounce you as 1338...
Runescape is:

12 year old = "Hey can I have your armor?"
26 year old (very sad eh? but it happens)= "No! My gold crested.true warrior rune armor is worth way too much!"
12 year old = "Please?"
26 year old = "No."
12 year old = "OMG you stupid f***!!! IM going to reprot you!"

Imagine this:
You do something.
You do it again.
You do it again.
You do it again.
You do it again.
You get the picture. The most repetitive game on the Internet, you just do the same thing again and again and again and...
You start playing it as a normal person, but eventually you have no life and no friends.. well, no friends that you've actually met anyway.

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.
DON'T PLAY.
It's like...drugs.
I forgot to eat because I was playing RuneScape.
