Harakiri Posted October 11, 2009 Share Posted October 11, 2009 Folks, you might have sat down at your computer one day to go on Youtube and look up Runescape Machinima or something Runescape related. Most Runescapers who are also daily searching the 'tube might have discovered Bob, Runescape: Gods Exposed, and the Runescape Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto Music Video.These videos gained a lot of popularity, and would soon lead to Machinima buying into the most popular, Tehnoobshow's, show and take it over. This is where I noticed the steady decline of the Runescape Machinima, and it's not because Bob IRL was was a lame attempt to create a rip-off of Arby N' The Chief, it's because WoW players found that Machinima quit using WoW as a means to create videos, and instead Machinima cashed in on the Bob craze. The videos were fine, but the comments suddenly became a means to laugh at people who played Runescape. We are either premature children who have not grown pubes, or overweight people who can't afford to play WoW or just plain [wagon]es. Yes people, it seems we are all fat kids who come from poor families and can't get past first grade because we are so stupid. But of course, WoW players don't realize that while the twelve year old stereotype has been around for a while and I have heard multiple people call me a child for continuing my play of RS, that WoW has stereotypes as well. And we can't mention those though. Those are instantly wrong and the people who play WoW are all twenty-somethings who make millions of dollars a year. And why do people look down on RS? So what if it's graphics suck and it costs five dollars a month to play? I especially love the whole argument about the story of WoW being so awesome and RS having no story. I started to play WoW, but was turned off by the sheer fact that you spent most of your time killing animals on quests and you never felt like you achieved anything. Your name wasn't in the lore, it was always someone else. Sure WoW has a lot of story that they threw on their website and make you read in over-priced paperbacks written by authors with minimal talent, but it is not integrated as much into the game. Runescape has a progressive story, and while it is never that awe-inspiring, it is much more exciting to do a quest where you use a magic sword of lore to kill a demon then be told at level fifteen to run to the Caves of Evil and fight Fetid Rats twelve times in a row. So, long story short, Runescape Machinima has exposed more people to Runescape and now I see a lot more people bashing it then ever before. I blame Machinima more then anything else for allowing people to post their times for parties instead of actual Runescape Machinimas, because it just gives haters more to laugh at when people are using Machinima as a means to advertise their 99 cooking party. So does anybody else feel that Runescape Machinima is helping bring in a new group of haters who never put their opinion out there? Because I get annoyed when I tell someone that Runescape has players that are much older then 12 and I get ten replies telling me to quit doing something with my parents or being a [developmentally delayed], or being poor. I know it's just like everything else on the internet, but I think it's stupid that WoW players fight when their game has just as many problems as Runescape.
