So about a week ago my 9yr old asks me if he can play Runescape, I was distracted at the time and didn't really listen and dismissed... But today he was watching his kids cartoons and being that season period and me being bored out of my brains I sit down for 2 seconds to watch some very very very very very s*** Ben 10 (seriously I don't get this crap) and a Runscape Commercial comes on TV...

2 Things surprise me about this....

1. This game is still going
2. They are advertising during kids prime time (get em while they are young).

How many of you creeps still play this s***?

Yeah Runescape is still going pretty strong to this day. They have actually overhauled the entire game with actual classes now, new combat and some updated graphics. I think the company behind it, Jagex, is bringing out a space game soon though I haven't paid much attention.

I still remember my old level 99 mage/wizard thing that would tell new players to come into the wilderness and we'd gank 'em.

Typo in subject makes it sound like an MMO about food-poisoning.

I was once involved with getting 15,000 accounts banned from runescape, and that's my story.

Well I fired this game up yesterday to give it a run over.

It has improved in the last 10 years, it's still a piece of turd.

I won't be letting my son play it purely cause I don't want to explain why its a non responsive piece of buggy crap.

I'm sort of a 2D-4eva kind of guy on this one, unsure if biased or if it actually is easier to just make things out in the simpler version as I think.

I remember playing this casually during my VCE (2001/2002) back when it had the simpler solid colour graphics. I remember committing genocide on cows, starting fires, cooking (and burning) meat, gathering grains, grinding flour, buying bowls, turning flour and water into dough; combining it all then baking (and burning) them in ovens just so I could give myself and mates meat pies for health points!
