Common sense would tell you that you shouldn't just go on random sites.

I believe a lot of the kids would fall for it, but the game's meant for older players right?



Well, most games are aimed towards the 12-16 year old players, and I think even Runescape is too. And I can even see some adults falling for it.


A lot of games have adult players in mind, runescape being the exception is aimed for 12 year olds, which a lot of us started when we were 12-13 and stuck around til were adult players


Runescape is not aimed for 12-year-olds.

That's what they want us to think.

My older brother actually asked me to play the game and check out how safe it was, because my Nephews were really into it at one point - he trusted my opinion on it, since I have been a gamer my whole life. I caught the bug, and was off to the races. 7 years later...nephews rarely play anymore(Xbox consumes their time), while I'm still plodding along.

I've taken breaks...tried other games...but always seem to return to RS. It's not easy walking away from something that you put so much time into. Of the clans I belonged to, 60%+ were older than 18.

So....CHEERS to all the old folks out there in RS land - you are not alone.

I wouldn't really consider anybody to be old until you hit your mid 30s. Both are my parents are well into their 50s and they were the ones who introduced me to video games, believe it or not. My sister is 29 and we used to battle each other on fighting games like Street Fighter II and Mortal Kombat to see who would win the competition out.

Now I have to admit, I do feel old from time to time. It's just sad that the things you grew up with and cherished so much are from years in the past. Now I see a whole new generation that hasn't been able to experience the same feelings I did. Runescape included.

bul[cabbage] its not. Until recently (or whenever MMG took over management) it was basically - for 12 year olds and proud -

Now they claim to support adult gamers but you can see the scars of the stronghold of security and player safety still visible

They already removed the security questions part in the stronghold of security, and I don't think you need to do a test thing anymore in player safety. You just get lamps now.

You still have to do the security exam and answer the questions in the SoS if you're under 13 years old.

And those under 13 years old are in the minority, no? Most people fake age anyways, mostly because it makes them feel cooler.

But one thing people don't realize is that it's more efficient to fake age above 13. You don't get the security/safety questions anymore, AND you can communicate in activities + dungeoneering, places where constant chitchat is a must. Not to mention it makes a more effective gameplay since you don't have to just listen to quickchat anymore - conversation is far more free and broad!

I'm going to go against the majority of the posts here, and say that, "Yes, I am too old for RuneScape."
This might be partly because of the way I played (I played a lot. Srsly, a lot.), but also because I saw RS from a different point of view. The simple things of skilling didn't interest me any longer, I had to have something to kill, something happening around me. I also felt as if I was distancing myself from the somewhat childish jokes that JaGeX endlessly incorporated into any aspect of the game that they could.
I'm 17 and quit this summer.

In real life I knew of some kids as young as 8 years old playing.

Usually they would see their older siblings playing and would join as well.

At that age they aren't ashamed of RS and tend to recruit their friends to play as well.

It shocked me at first when I saw this little kid controlling a char that was fighting in t'zahar especially because he had decent gear.

I did find it funny that their dad called the game "run" "escape".


I do think RS does crossover to a few different age groups though because if you just want to chat there is that feature or if you just want to skill or just fight.

Fact: The first person to ever max F2P total(Syzygy) is 45 or 46 years old currently, has been a while since I spoke with him.
I don't think this game has any limitations regarding age.

I know 8 year olds that play call of duty.

Must mean Call of Duty is developed for 8 year olds.

I've been playing games since I was physically able to, which was around 4-years-old. I don't intend on stopping. Nope, I'll be owning in future MMORPG's when I'm 60. Games can appeal to all audiences, just as music and television do.

I started playing when I was like seven or so. I didn't even know what the hell was going on. I mined like 4k iron I think and smelted it all without any rings of forging, then smithed it. This took about a week, heh.

Played a lot this summer, stopped near the end. I don't know if I'm just taking a break or quitting. I went off for about two years before this summer and over the summer pretty much doubled everything I had. Made my first mil, did a ton of quests, probably quadrupled my money.

Age shouldn't matter to be honest.
Although being flamed by a 12-year-old for being 19 and playing is annoying, there are quite a number of mature teenagers and adults in the game.

This I do not understand.

People usually played classic in their mid teens. The addiction carries on until mid 20s. At age 30, I would consider someone "old".
