There are few games that hold as much nostalgia and fond memories as RuneScape. This titan of an MMORPG was the first time many players had experienced this genre and it would help set the standard for MMO's in the years to come. But what was it about RuneScape that made it so addicting and fun? Why Was RuneScape SO AWESOME?! Only one way to find out....

So what I'm gathering is that RuneScape is popular because it's easily accessible. That's a fair point. I've never managed to get into it, and I suppose that's because I played MMOs long before RuneScape was even released. So to me RuneScape was always just a really watered-down version of something like Ultima Online, and the rest just seems to boil down to nostalgia and subjective opinions. But that accessible is unmatched in those early days I suppose.

Oldschool runescape isn't the same game from years ago. It would have been smart to outline that the original RS game moved onto the RS3, and then there was a lot of protests and people demanded an older build back which has morphed into a side-game of oldschool that was divergent from the original Runescape .

It really is awesome how everybody has some different experience to look back on when playing RuneScape. I was in 7th grade back in 2007, and played with two friends from school. We really wanted to get better gear, but didn't know how to get a bunch of money. So we just stood around killing cows at lumbridge collecting the leather. Then we'd give it all to one person and send them to the GE to sell to crafters. They'd come back, we'd split the money and keep killing cows. We were eventually able to upgrade to all Addy stuff. Then we found out about the giants and selling Big Bones, and kept doing it there. When I think of RuneScape, I think of my half assed, child labor slaughter house I ran with my friends

The game was so real and lively. And as a kid you had a different, naive prospective of the game where you didn't really know anything. That was my favorite time as a kid, playing this game.. Doing castle wars as a straight up noob, dueling other noobs in the duel arena and getting reported for calling them "stupid Def n00bz".. Lmao I still play on and off occasionally, but it's not the same feel as when I was young

I got on OS RuneScape recently for shits and giggles and to get some nostalgia and some dude in chat just asked what 9 + 10 was. I jokingly responded 21 while others were saying 19. Then the dude just said “yo you won” to me and told me to trade with him. So I went and traded with him and he put 1 million coins on the table and instantly accepted. I thanked him after that and he was a hella chill guy. Little me would have gone absolutely crazy lol

I met my wife on Runescape. I logged in one day after years of not playing just to reminisce and troll some people. I had the Chicken Suit equipped, a rare item from the 2007 Easter Event, and was just kind of messing around when I bumped into another player wearing the same rare suit! We ended up talking and playing the game for the rest of the summer. Great memories. Runescape, man...

Some reasons: 1) Inspired by D&D, Tolkien etc. ., and not modern day nu-male fantasoy. 2) No sublimal political propaganda due to oversocialized California soy-male developer needing to insert his beliefs into the game through dialogue. 3) The focus of the game was on the grind and the social aspect, as opposed to other MMO's where the focus rather lay on skinners box gratification mechanics.

I miss when games were like this, and not soiled by the metagaming and min-maxing. There was something so wholesome about discovering a new game, not sure what exactly is all even possible. Now, every game gets gutted and min maxed in beta and everyone just googles the best builds, etc. Between how connected everyone is now, and datamining, games get absolutely ruined.

Ever play "Furcadia" back then? :P Somehow i didnt play runescape hmmmm We used to play worms at school. I remember going to the computer class and all the boys would running to the computers that had worms installed basicly pushing eachother out of the way lol. And the girls just laughed and used whatever computer they didnt care... If you didnt get one that could play worms then your stuck with talking to the girls on MSN and ebaumsworld or whatever the websites with games were..... My fav was the trials bike one. This may have all been slightly before runescape2's time not sure.

i started playing osrs like 6 months ago and i havent played for 2 months because i started watching some tv series and my bond is now gone I spend 5 days on osrs and because of the wilderness i couldnt earn any money and eventually a guy who helped me do a quest gave me 4 mil gp and i bought a bond immediately.But because of my sister,she made me started watching avatar and after a week i was so shamed to even go back to osrs after wasting that bond.But this video gave me the nostalgia that i needed and im starting playing again thanks to you and i will never go to the wilderness until i have enough money to buy a bond again...

Just started playing Anarchy Online again a few weeks ago for the first time since like 2007 and that is the only game I've been playing. Totally hooked on that again.

I am so grateful and happy that my parents recognized the worth of that game for the little kid I was. They willingly paid for my membership because they saw the potential that game had. Socializing with others, learning to be suspicious of strangers who want to scam you, learning English, opening up books to learn about all the different skills, etc. RS2 will always hold a special place in my heart.
