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.

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.
