I'm 22 and there was only one time I got some funny looks for playing. That was last year when I was working an extra job during spring break and the bosses son saw me playing on my laptop on my lunch break. He though it was weird someone "So old" played but then asked me all this advice on it. Other than that there was only one odd look from a co-worker when we were discussing the updates. :P



But hey teens have always had it rough. Just point out it requires far less commitment then WoW or some other MMO's and is twice as much fun.

I wouldnt say that, since none of my friends play MMORPGs...

But I didnt know that. The only other MMORPG Ive played is MapleStory (cuz my friends played o.O), which is really childish....

most people I know simply don't ask =D> a few people know I do, but most play rs.

but I try and hide that I play. I have one idiot friend who keeps asking "how do I train my range???" so he came up to me at lunch, and I'm like, "stfu, I'll ttyl about this :evil: " and he shut up

but I try and hide it.



P.S. not to hijack forum or anything, but how do runescapers find eachother??? I always find other people who play runescape somehow.

Two of my real good friends play runescape because I got them to play again. We usually talk about it openly in class and get laughs out of people but not anything mean. I met a couple kids who played and one kid in class sent me a note asking if I really played because he thought it was weird that I would play but he too played.

Most of the people on my friends list are aged 16-25+



I've kinda quit for a while though, Ill start up when I'm done with school (this is my last year).



People formed this grudge against RS early on in my grade at school, basically all the WoW [bleep]s ganging up on us. Tbh, I don't really like WoW it's way too complicated and I found it boring (I've started a few new accounts and played on my friend's lv80 account). The combat is just [cabbage] and clunky.



I apprieciate RS for it's style and simplicity, it's an original appropriation of it's genre, albeit not perfect.

It's ok, it gets better when you're older. In college people only make fun of you if you can't drink, they dont care about rs, (i'm pretty good at both) \<img src=/' />

Nobody but one person knows I play RS, and that person isn't exactly popular city (he's one of my best friends though) And he actually played WoW for a while, so I can threaten him with that if he wants to tell others. Most people don't even know what RS is in my school though, so yeah.

personally i dont think theres anything wrong with playing rs. its much more simple than other mmorpg's, way less expensive, and in my opinion, a hell of alot more fun. im 16 and only a very few people know i play, mostly because im more a part of the "in-crowd" who tend to think games such as rs are only for nerds.. but ya know what? i have a life, and i spend much more time in that than i do in runescape. so i dont really care what others think about it.



the other thing i wanna point out is that a few kinda nerdy kids (no offense) in my 6th period play wow, and they know i play rs, and they make fun of me and try to tell me that its more nerdy than wow. i have a good laugh everytime that happens. then i shake my head and flirt with all the girls in the class :D it tends to shut them up.

Yeah. I think it's quite annoying how when somebody finds out that I play runescape (I'm not hiding it from anyone) they all laugh and think I am the dumbest person to walk the planet. I only get to play 3 hours max a week! Jeez. The usual response goes like this, "WHAT?! You still play that? (all my friends used to, only one still does) Get a life!" Followed by laughing and smirking.



Why is runescape so hated by the gaming world? Nobody gets made fun of for being obsessed with xbox 360.......

Generally, people who play WoW are looked down upon. RS is looked to be the cheap and even lamer version of WoW. I can see why people would ridicule you.



I avoid it if it's not necessary. People ask me what I play on my comp, I say MMOs, FPSs, and RTSs and end it there. If they ask what MMOs, I say "fun ones" :roll: But I'll admit to playing RS in the end.
