    Are you inferring that it's possible to enjoy Runescape?

    You're saying that RuneScape isn't fun. RuneScape is hell of fun. I have played it for years and I'm 13. You'd be surprised that most of the people playing RS are between the ages of 13-17.

    I've always loved RS and actually was addicted to it for a year and a half. It's not a dumb game if you think about it

    Epic awesome me

    The only times I see people playing Runescape (at the library) or talking about it - are all kids. I was actually surprised when I found out that ANY adults play that game.

    I started playing it in what.... 2002?  I was 10, and I really enjoyed it until I was about 14.  But things did start going downhill in 2004.

      I am going to tell you a little story. There was once these kids who loved a game called rs. Then the kids grew up to 13 years of age and relized that Jagex had the worst decisions from the list of options they had. So the kids stopped playing the once great game.

                            Based on a true story.

    I started playing only a few months after the game had first released, there were only a few skills in the game and global PvP had just been turned off and restricted to the Wilderness.

    Jagex's failures began long before 2004. The dragon items debacle is being repeated and is exactly the same thing they did with Rune armor. First it was "oh we'll only release a few pieces" then it was "oh we won't release the WHOLE set" then suddenly Rune armor was a staple and you were considered worthless if you didn't have at least one set.

    Initially PvP had a very heavy focus in the game as well. I believe it was Jagex's original intentions to create a purely PvP game (indicated by the way they handled the crafting system and dropped items on death) but at some point they decided that it was too "hardcore" and removed it all.

    They had a good thing going, and they needed PvP to help keep the economy stable. Now people just buy whatever the new flavor-of-the-month best-item-in-the-game is and hoard money for the next one. Nobody ever DOES anything anymore, and it's depressing. People will literally grind a single skill for months (even the totally useless ones like firemaking) just to get the cape or the prestige of having another capped skill.

    Personally, I haven't played since they added the Dragonfire shields. The day they came out, I went down to the Black Dragon caves at the chicken shrine and got my draconic visage, had a friend fix it to my shield and then went and charged it up myself on blue dragons. Last I checked that shield was worth 25 million and it took me all of 6 hours to get it. People are more willing to cut down trees for 6 weeks than kill dragons for 6 hours, because they don't want to risk their precious equipment. How sad is that?
