An online adventure game that turns normal aspiring human beings into brainwashed robots.

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.

Where my social life went to die.
Example 1-
Bob: Hey, we're all going to the pool. Want to come?
Me: No, I need to get 99 wc.
Bob: Huh?
Me: Level 99 woodcutting. Believe me, it's important.
Bob: How long will that take?
Me: Well, a couple months overall. I'm in my sixth week of training, so it shouldn't be too long now if I keep playing at 10 hours a day.
Bob: *flees the vicinity*

Example 2-
Jane: Hey, what are you doing?
Me: Playing RuneScape.

Another term for, Runescape, which the makers of runescape (Jagex) tried to tell you in the first place to escape from the runescape grasp. And once you are in, only the strong ones can escape.

this game has affected my life since i was 14 and still haunts me to this day. this game takes you over inside i tryed to get ride of it in many ways but it keeps coming back. never start playing this game. never. it consums you and makes you crave to get more money its so so sad that this can happen to humans by a video game. this game is very similar to cigs, drinking, and crack. when you try runescape its nearly immpossible to get it out of your life it still haunts me till this day and i have been runescape free for a year
My friend (when i first moved to a new area): lets go on runescape
Me: ok
My friend 1 year later: What level are you?
Me: OMG dude i cant stop playing i threw my life out the window and i cant stop i have no friends because i moved to a new area and cant stop thinking about runescape fuck you!
My friend: Me too! im so sorry for ruining our lives!

An extremely addictictive game that actually will harm you.

I was introduced to runescape fall 2008, and from then on I was hooked. I played for hours and hours daily for 11 months until I noticed somthing was wrong. After a bit of investigating, I found that my iq had dropped by 20 points(I have been putting myself threw a sort of iq therapy that I literally pray will work), My grades, previously straight A's, had dropped to c's and b's, My behavior became uncontrolled and I developed bipolar disorder(no joke I have been diagnosed), my previously abundant ability to read, write and create has dropped(once again I am trying to put myself through a sort of therapy to solve this), and finally, I became a social butt.

This is NO JOKE. This game is dangerous to people minds and bodies. If you decide to play this game(which I advise not to), BE CAREFUL!
Before Runescape
Me: Hey guess what I got an A in Latin
Friend: Me too!

After starting Runescape

Friend: I got another A, how about you
Me:...I got a c, but managed to get a whip
Friend:.....

After quitting runescape and therapy

Me: Oh yeah!! look at my A!!
*Silence*
Me: Oh thats right, everyone hates me now
