Runescape is a very addictive MMORPG, or Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game. It has become quite popular and has millions of players that play each day. HOWEVER, be smart - don't start.

I used to be addicted, got to level 90-something, played for about 4-5 years and then just stopped. I wasted so much time. Don't start playing unless you want to have NO social life at all. Play a FPS instead like Counter Strike or America's Army or something, because they're not as addictive.
Kid1: Hey let's hang out!
Kid2: Nah i'm trying to get my mining to level 60. I need to mine 4000 more coal until I level. Then I can get in the mining guild!!!!
Kid1: Whatever loser.
Kid2: Please come back! It's not my fault i'm addicted!
-no answer-
Kid2: Ok, I quit runescape!
-6 months pass and Kid2 has all kinds of friends-
I'm so glad I quit runescape!

Based on a true story! xDDDD

Sweet Game that is really addicting. Play if you want something that is time consuming when really bored. Don't fall into the buy members, then you get really addicted.. But its pretty good. Bad graphics, but then again they have been trying to improve them. Well I'm addicted. Give it a try.
Noob: Give me free stuff.
Addicted: Go work for it.
Noob: But i want you to do it for me
Addicted: I got my stuff by working so you work! GOD!

Runescape (rs2/rs) is a very very addictive game! I played it for well almost 2 years. It is a great game but I had become addicted to it as well as other friends that i knew in the "Runescape" world. Try not to become addicted to it or, you will have a hard time getting back to your real world life.

A very addicting game on the internet. There is no clear goal or point in the game, all you really do is try to get as much experience in each skill as you can, and wear nice expensive rune or dragon armor. Runescape consists of a free world, which is not very large, and a member’s world which is gigantic, and includes more weapons, armor, items, skills, ect. It's only $5 a month to be a member.

There seems to be some competition between Runescape and World of Warcraft (WOW), in which most of the people you talk to will say WOW is better. However, WOW is somewhere around $15 a month, there is no "free server" (As far as I know, please correct me if I'm wrong) and takes up a ton of memory on your computer. Runescape seems to be the better alternative because you don't have to go to the store and buy expansion packs for it, and you can play for free if you choose.

One big problem with Runescape is that many people create what I call “Auto Noobs”, which are accounts that people make that repeat the same task over, and over, and over again all day long without anyone having to control it. People do this to make millions without having to lift a finger, and it’s really annoying. They are easy to spot, they are almost always very generic, tan shirt, green pants, black hair, and usually under level 5.

I advise you never start playing because you won’t be able to stop. Before you know it, you and your kids will call into school and work with ridiculous excuses just so you can play Runescape all day, and let your brains rot for the Hulu aliens to eat.
Matt: "Well, it's time to go to work, but I really want to play Runescape."

Matt calls in sick.

Matt: "Hello boss, I'm afraid I can't come into work today, me and my family were in a terrible plane crash. My whole family is dead, and I'm now a vegetable. See you tomorrow."

Meanwhile, the Hulu aliens slowy eat the reamins of his brain which rotted away from the many hours and hours of Runescape it had to deal with.

runescape, really bad game that has consumed many souls
Starting Runescape was the worst decision i ever made. It is a shity game full of scammers, hackers and just all round cock-smacks. 99% of playars are overweight 12 year old loosers or 40year olds trying to add you on myspace. This game slaps dick so hard....
...if u disagree with me you are a knob head, cause this game is extremely lame, the most expensive item in the game are paper hats called "party hats" people sit their clicking on a rock or a tree to get enough resources to sell them to buy these items. However due to the amount of how quickly their price increases it is now almost imposible to obtain one.
Pking-Player killing, this doesent work beacause if someone is about to die they will porbably just teleport. In free version the wildreness is full of pure mages that pray on new players(noobs) to make money. This never works but because the noobs will usually be holding worthless items.Pking isnt even fun because huge clans will just come and kill you. Even if you are in a clan usually the leader keeps all the profits.
Scams-The game is full of scammer that you have to be weary of. The most popular scam in free version is the "gold trimmed amrour scam" where someone will claim they can trim your armour if you give it to them.
History-When i originaly started runescape it was ok, their was no members and far less 12year old nerds. The people in the game heped each other out more, the game was a game and people had more fun. Now players dont play for fun. People usually play till they reach a ceratin combat lvl (126) and quit or they gain a level 99 stat.
members-you get more "map" size, however you have to pay for the game, you also get some mini games, quests and skills. It makes the game much more addictive.
Players-Zezima-RS player that has all stats 99, this guy is a uni student and he obviously a looser with no life as he has 700m xp in the game.
Skills-Their is no skill required to play this game, it just needs time, and in regards to construction and herblaw, money. The skills are all second rate except maybe for fletching. One can make money faster per hour just merchanting.
Addiction-60% of runescape players are addicted to the game. Last month some guy killed himself becuase his friend stole an item called a
white party hat" of him. Serves him right, we got enough loozers in the world!!
Me-I am glad a quit this game. It took up alot of my time, i thought it was fun at the time however when i saw my marks dropping i quit on that day, now i am a happy everyday guy that you will walk up to on the street and say hi!!!

never and i mean ever play runescape. and if you do quit!

Runescape is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game, or MMORPG for short. It is subject to much flaming, from some people who like it and hate the people who don't, and some people who don't like it and hate the people who do.

The game has been put down for having a poor community and being all about doing the same thing over and over again to get better at doing the same thing over again. The fans of the game usually retaliate by saying that there is no RPG with a good community, and that not all the skills involve repeatedly doing the same thing.

The game is most frequently complimented for having no downloads, as you can play it in your browser window, and what are frequently acclaimed as some of the best graphics in the world of gaming. The game is also frequently put down for being too easy, it is very difficult to die unless you decide to go out into the wilderness, a location where players fight players.
"Hi there, Jimmy!" Jack waved to his friend.

"Oh, hi there, Jack!" Jimmy waved back.

"What are you playing there, Jimmy?"

"Oh, Jack, it's just Runescape."

"RUNESCAPE? That game is terrible!"

"Why? It has beautiful graphics, some of the best in the world."

"Well, that's true, I'll give it that, but it also has poor gameplay."

"Look, I don't really care what you think, but I'm having fun."

"Good point. Have fun!"

An online game that is highly addictive, i started around the end of 2004 start of 2005 and played on and off till mid 2009 (mainly on), whilst playing the game you feel you are benefiting, but honestly and i feel it now i deeply regret playing it, i having nothing to show for how long i played, and it kills me to even imagine how long i wasted on it, yes i can reminisce about it but at the end of the day you really dont benefit from it, if you can manage your time well and are self disciplined i do recommend it..but this game will take over large chunks of your life.
it kind of hit home how it kind of made me fall behind when we had family friends over once, they were saying how their sons and daughters (who were my age), were going on to great things and that they are high achievers, at that moment i realised deep down with a horrible gut feeling runescape was the reason i had gone downhill and hadnt lived life to the full, at that time i was 16-17 when this hit home, i am now 18 hoping to go to uni, with a long way to go yet to catch these people up i can say i am on route and that it is never too late to stop playing, i feel with me and other people it takes its natural course to boar you to stop playing it, but lastly it also makes you totally lose touch with reality and i found my self thinking about it at school alot
family friend: so what have you done this summer then?
me: i completed monkey madness in one day on runescape!!!!
