Yes, as well as any other video game where you spend hours playing and achieve pixels.

It's your style of play that defines what Runescape is to you.



If you are a Hardcore Runescape player, it can be considered Geeky/nerdy.



If you are a moderate player, it can be considered another video Game.



If you don't play too often, but still do play, it can be considered a time waster.

this is what dictonary.com has to say on the topic of nerds:

1. a stupid, irritating, ineffectual, or unattractive person.

2. an intelligent but single-minded person obsessed with a nonsocial hobby or pursuit: a computer nerd.



in number 2 it clearly states that the person is intelligent.



so runescape is geeky.

Are you saying that people that play runescape are [developmentally delayed]ed or stupid? Are you making fun of me?

i consider myself a nerd only to a small degree. reason is, i'm not smart, i don't have that annoying accent, my acnes almost 100% gone, and i don't become overly obsessed with fantasies and technology. so in theory, i'm not stereotypically fit for a nerd but i don't have a lot of friends and i rarely go outside...



anyways, since we're talking about runescape, i guess it is kind of nerdy. but i don't care if anyone will insult me for playing a game i enjoy. and i don't regret spending 4 years of my life on it. i would rather continue playing runescape then get a life because that is my choice.

We're all nerds to a degree for playing RuneScape. Is that bad?

(nerd) refers to a person who passionately pursues intellectual activities, esoteric knowledge, or other obscure interests rather than engaging in more social or popular activities.


It seems to me that runescape is neither an intellectual activity nor an obscure interest (given its popularity).



I suppose knowing a lot about the game and trying to find the most efficient strategies might be "pursuing esoteric knowledge".



Either way, being a nerd is not a bad thing. I'm a physicist myself (physics being a stereotypically nerd subject). I assure you that in the real world, nerds are often highly successful.
"Noob" is an insult. "Noob" is overused. Be polite. Try to say "noob" less than once a day.
Thank you.

It sort of is but is it realy a bad thing? As long as Runescape isn't the majority off your time I'd say your fine.

I'd say it's seen as childish as opposed to nerdy. After all, most people learn of it and most of the target audience are middle/jr. high school children.

If the CORPORAL beast is this hard, imagine how hard a GENERAL or COLONEL beast would be. a corporal is not even an admirable rank in armies that use that ranking system.


Yeah, it is a pking minigame, so any arguments anybody makes will probably be biased.
The best way this will end :Everybody just says,"I'm not arguing with you anymore, goodbye."
The worst way this will end: I don't really know, psychological warfare? Worldwide thermonuclear war? Pie eating contest?

Hehehe WoW is more nerdy, because that is just 100% fat 40-year olds that can't get out of the computer chair. So, no its not the nerdiest thing out there, but its nerdy. Look at me \<img src=/' /> \<img src=/' /> \<img src=/' />



Nerds ftw :D



I agree that it is seen more childish then nerdy, but you'd be surprised how many older people play it. WoW is just full of pedo's though. Like for example...

Omg rofl love this image :D



Just so you people know, I don't really fit the nerd group. I go out often with friends, I am only high average at school, not genius (I'm REALLY lazy when it comes to schoolwork, only barely getting it done most of the time), I do spend a lot of time on Runescape but I also participate in sports, I jog, and I keep fit. So, I'm only part-nerd :P

It's really all how you define nerdy. For me, I don't think it is, I see it as something I do to pass the time at night when I have nothing to do. It's no different then someone watching TV to pass the time.
