And the 1000th rant goes to ---

"Eww! You play runescape?"

When I started playing runescape, it was the kids I babysat for that introduced it to me.

I never told them I made an account... they were annoying problem children.



I never told anyone at my school I played, I figured nobody cared which video game. Plus, with everyone else addicted to Halo or Wow or the 100s of other games, why would they care which game I played.

Now that I'm in college, pretty much everyone knows that I play, and they even reminisce about their old accounts. I keep telling them they need to sign on, they need to check it out, its totally different, but rarely do they ever get on.



The one thing I thought this rant was going to be about is another player in runescape calling you a nerd for playing runescape. As if they have to prove something because they've got a life IRL. That sometimes annoys me, but then I've learned that if that's their only beef with you, they've run out of ideas.

99 dungeoneering achieved, thanks to everyone that celebrated with me!

You are at an age where what the world thinks about you is pretty important. Once you get older, you realise that what you think about yourself is more important. If you don't want to project the image of a person playing RS, then lie about it. If you can live with what people think about you, then face the hate-storm and tell the truth.

I still play on a regular basis, but if any rs convorsation comes up and someone asks me I say I gave my pass to my stepbrother who lives in florida. And then I will try to change the topic a.s.a.p. not because i don't like the game but I am 16 and i don't want to be ridiculed untill I graduate for this.

Why do you let it bother you? So you play RS. So what? You're having fun with it, and that's all that matters. Whether or not they like the game is their opinion, but you should never let it bother you.

...Alright, the Elf City update lured me back to RS over a year ago.

Ah, to be young and insecure. :D



I'm with Langer on this one. I don't care all that much what people think of my hobbies. But then, I'm approaching 30 and have long since lost the insecurity of youth. :lol:

Most of my friends think Runescape is for 12-14 year old kids. So they laugh at me. I'll just shrug and laugh with them.

I'm 16, all of my friends know that I play Runescape they don't laugh sometimes they role their eyes if I have a huge fit because of an annoying noob. I don't generally talk about it because it's not a topic anyone can join into, I also don't tell people randomly that I play RS, but if they ask then ofcourse i'll say yes. You should never feel ashamed! :P

I avoid talking about RS IRL, it's something I did as a teen that I never got out of the habit of doing. Or at least, that is the way I look at it. I really don't know what I would say about it. It would be very akward. It does get addictive at times, but it has never lead to any problems, or interfered with anything and I want it to stay that way. The people closest to me know that I play it, but they don't ask many questions, or talk about it, probably becasue they see it as just some game.

Well it happens sometimes... But they keep repeating the same question so it doesn't matter anymore what they think. Heh, once someone asked me just like that: "LOL! You play RS? :lol: " Then when no one was there he asked what's my str lvl :D

Anyway, i don't care!

I don't know if this thing only happens in the USA or not because I live in Australia and no one cared or cares that I play Runescape. And I'm 23. Everyone around me just sees it as another game and as my choice to play it or not. One thing I have noticed is that it’s mainly WoW players that have a go at Runescape players for still playing. In reply to them I just say, what? You call me a geek for playing a cheap $5 a month MMORPG while you sit at home playing an MMORPG that you spend $15 a month on!? You call me a geek yet you pay $15 a month for just a game?

That normally shuts them up lol :thumbsup:

Yeah, everyone who asks me if I play RuneScape asks me about my combat level and if I have any 99s.... I just realized that now.

Never really had anyone bother me about Rs, as no-one i know irl plays. In my eyes, it's just another game. If i wasn't playing this i'd be spending my spare time playing on some other game so it doesn't make a blind bit of difference really.

I'm guessing cause RuneScape is just a grind game with minimal skill involved, mostly just your effort. A lot of people just think that's dumb and games should be on skill not time invested (especially the amount in RuneScape).

I'm too secure/confident to really care what other people think.



A few people in my inner circle know I play runescape and every now and again it gets brought up. We laugh about it for 2 minutes or so and then move on.
