no runescape is'nt nerdy.

nerds are smart.

runescape is geeky, geeks play video games but they dont have to be smart.




but there are different types of nerds. like computer nerds and anime nerds ect ect the list goes on forever


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] or stupid? Are you making fun of me?


i never said that you were developmentally delayed i just said that a not all runescapers are intellgent.

Runescape is nerdy, but i'm not a nerd. Most people that play are just 12 year old kids... (like i was when i started)



It's just a habit that i got into 6 years ago, and i haven't really stopped. Some might call it an addiction, but for me it's just a better way of spending time i would have otherwise spent playing xbox and watching tv.

Who cares if it is nerdy? It's fun and that all that matters.

RUNESCAPE FTW!

Honestly, only teenagers obsessed themselves on the term "nerdy".



When your older, it starts to matter less because you really don't give a !!!CROPS CIRCLEZ!!! about what others think. People who are older and are STILL obsessed over insecurity issues are often unemployed or working at low wage occupations.



You can put the word "nerd" in anything in life. There are times I use the word for fun like when I call one of model friends a "fashion nerd" or one of my gym buddy's who's more fit than me a "fitness nerd".



So you can pretty much "nerd" anything in life. It's just a term saying your knowledgeable on something. Used mostly "negatively" apparently.

Nerd and geek are such childish immature terms.



I'm smart, I work hard for my grades, I revise hard for exams, I play computer games.



Big whoop, that only makes up like 5% of who I am as a person and even then most of it will be irrelevant post education and I'd rather be a nerd or a geek and y'know get qualifications and make something of my life than be obsessed by being "cool" and end up working in mcdonalds like permanently.

Depends how you play.

Like any game you can read into the gameplay and learn some of the maths and logic behind it to win or you can simply ignore it and do want you want.



To be good at RS requires some brains and some basic knowledge of maths otherwise you'd end up spending ages with nothing to show.

No such thing as nerds. Only smart people and idiots.



Thus, being a nerd is irrelevant to Runescape, thus, Runescape is not nerdy.

Totally true, but since there are a lot of teenagers playing this game, it's not surprising to see them asking for advice on personnal insecurity issues on these boards.

The best advice I have for them: grow it out, it won't matter in a couple of years.

Yes. I would never reveal to anyone that I played Runescape. I have special set up with my computer so that people can't see my screen from an angle, and that gives me time to hit a keyboard combination and change the window if they are coming towards me or entering the room.



I always play runescape on my laptop in my back room, and usually only when my girlfriend is out. She is grateful that "you're not conrolling and you let me do whatever I want", but I just use the time to do all of these wierd little nerdy things that I like doing.



Another one that I do is when I read books, I keep the book in a shallow desk drower that I can quickly push in if someone enters the room.



i do not think that this is childish or immature, or any of the other descriptions that are being used to describe it by these selfish elitists who keep saying such things. I think that we all have things that are better kept concealed, and in my opinion, it is selfish and immature to reveal them.

I'm not nerdy, it's just, I don't have any other passtimes, I don't have any friends (thanks to a backstab of my 2 best friends some years ago...) and I don't like sports.

So the only things I really can and like to do are visiting parks (those with roller coasters, I don't know the English word for it, in Dutch it is pretpark), going to the movies and being busy on the computer.

And as the two first can't happen that often, I'm mostly restricted to the computer.

Bit sad, but hey, it's a kind of a lifestyle. It doesn't mean I'm nerdy/geeky, but what else can I do?

Yes, I hide to others that I play RS, because otherwise, they THINK I'm nerdy/geeky.

I think I'll log in and do some pking with my combo ags/ddp++ but I don't want to risk my Dh gaining EP in hotzones with my brawlers. After I get some cash selling my artifact drops, I'll port to the GE where I'll buy up some ranarr and make some ppots, merch some third age, get some willow seeds and check my tree's health, get some branches. Ranarr are on a 180 day average rise of over 50%, according to the G.E spread, so I'll have to buy up some for sale later on or so I won't have to pay as much.



No, not nerdy at all. :ugeek:
