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.
