I adore this game and having played nearly 15 years I've not once got bored, it's my relaxation, my escape, my freedom from real life, I enjoy almost every bit of it, I say almost as I can't for the life of me boss, I'm to rubbish and die but even without that I'm never fed up or bored, always lots and lots to do, so THANK YOU to everyone!! And may it continue for many more years to come
This was a refreshing comment to read . This comment reminded me a bit of myself when I used to play regularly. I no longer play RuneScape and am often critical of Jagex… I have to say though that if this game makes you as happy as it made me 10-15 years ago, then I think that's a good thing.Long retired from this game, to any of my old friends - I hope you are doing well .
I definitely agree with what you have to say, Azka. Although I've just recently started playing again after a few years (having stopped due to unforeseen circumstances), I have to say that the game is still full of the spirit that I've come to love about it. The progression that I've seen since I started in late 2007 is nothing short of remarkable. The game has changed significantly, but I would say that that is mostly for the better.
Forum Tyler, it's so easy to fall back in love with this game, the secret is treat it as it is....a game! don't take it to seriously, don't get yourself to a point where your mad/frustrated at it, just relax, have fun and enjoy it for what it is, just an amazing game
Cakebeard I adore Runescape, one day I could be having a good old natter with new people on the dock fishing the next day I'm trading my home grown farm animals with someone who lives half way around the world, the following day I'm on another planet (Runespan) sucking out the runes of strange creatures, it's totally different every single day! I love finding out where people are from and their way of life, fascinates me
While it's great to see someone refer to runescape in that relaxation and freedom from life way, it saddens me because that is very similar to how i once viewed this game but now it just feels like a hindrance and addiction that no matter how hard i try. i just can't let it go and some strange force seems to make me log in.
Don't get me wrong, i love this game, it is a massive part of my life but i also have a very deep and dark hatred for it because at 1 point something happened to me and how i felt because of this was not fair and i found it really disturbing how an online game could take over so much of my life in ways that nobody would believe.
But i am happy that it works for you and you can possibly control your emotions better than i could.
