When you're like 16-17 you try to deny playing it when friends ask you. Eventually there's a point when you just say f it and don't care who knows.... They'll just have to get over it.

When I was 16-17, most of my friends also played.

Calling someone a nerd for playing a game loosely translates to "I think the game you like is crap therefor I am insulting you for playing it."


I like this however it should be...

"I don't understand the game you play, and when I tried I failed horribly. I'm also a little bit jealous on how perfectly formed your [cabbage] is" <--- cabbage being the actual word in this case. Don't we all grow cabbages for sport?

I'm 40.

My wife makes fun of me for playing runescape.

Mostly because she knows all the young kids in the neighbourhood play runescape. That includes one of my children.

I don't care. I like playing the game.

I've been playing since 2004 and I'm 22. I always end up coming back after a break because of how RS is built. Sure, I played LOTRO, RoM and PWI for a bit, but RS blows them out of the water as far as I'm concerned.

I do feel a bit old now I'm 18, at University, and still playing. I got the "LOL I played RS when I was a kid" reaction from my new Uni mates when I told them but otherwise they don't mind. Since I fish a lot, I've come across quite a few people who are around 18+. Woodcutting and Fishing are heavenly skills for those who have a lot of reading to do :P

I was called a 12 year old the other day at a TET event for making a load of your mum jokes but bleh :P

I'm 30 years old and have been playing since the start of 2005. I was already old when I started playing. I never bother telling people my age in game anymore since I get alot of you're old, what are you doing playing the game type comments. I usually respond by saying when I was a teenager I never wasted my time playing game, I was busy having fun with real life(getting girls/doing the fun underage drinking thing/etc).

Now I'm not an old man, but I'm the only 30 year old I know that has gray in his beard(alot of gray :(). I still have fun playing the game so if I'm too old for whoever has a problem with it, oh well. I'll play this game until it dies. That is all.

My uncle is 34, plays RuneScape and is a little grey here and there too, so no worries, you're not alone. ;)
He's actually the one that got me playing when I was younger. I am 19 myself.

I got some gray hair up in my head, but it's so little that you wouldn't notice it. I'm 20.

Do you have any white spots in beard area? Like white skin?

P.S The shoe salesman rocks!

First, a curiosity: did u realize most of posters have +19? Thats because the "mature" part of the rs players tend to use forums. Not everyone, but the major part.

I'm currently 20, and played runescape for several years. Sometimes, myself ask myself if i'm not too old to play (usually when i rage about soloing stomp). Then i realize: who cares 0o

Tbh, thats one of the few things that make me like wow over runescape. In wow, majority of people you gather with are 20+, lots of women and old guys, lots of married ppl and ppl with kids. And yet, they can nerd as much as a 15 years old boy, even more sometimes.

Honestly? That is just about the rudest thing I've seen in a while... and yet the most common. I agree with you totally...

Some kids are really dumb. I'm 13 and a ten year old called ME old. What does that make you lot, ancient? Just kidding. But this stuff seriously ticks me off for many reasons, not the least of which being it gives younger players a horrible name with older ones. (Not saying the name isn't deserved, but there's always someone who doesn't fall into the stereotype.)

Solution: (Practical joke) if someone tells you runescape's only for kids, you say: Compared to me, you're a baby. Therefore, you shouldn't be playing. At all. And you shouldn't be insulting people with more brain cells in their skulls than in your underdeveloped cranium.

(Actually, I might just try that out myself. Interesting to see what answer I get. XD)

I'm almost 16, and I've had lots of friends who played and then stopped at 12-13. One kid told me just a few months ago that he ragequitted after he died and lost his granite platebody and dlong. Lul

While I totally agree with your sentiment, truth is, the "kids" are more likely to have more brain cells. The brain starts losing neurons as early as 17 in some people. :)

I'm 22, I've been playing RS sporadically since 2002. I don't feel old, though it is frustrating to deal with younger people sometimes.

I made this comment on a similar thread in the general discussion forum, and I thought i may be appropriate here:

It's always funny. People look at my combat level (138) and the gear I'm wearing and usually tell me, "Nerd. Get a life."

That's the point where I usually reply: "I've got a husband, three kids, a job, a house, a mortgage and a monthly car payment. How much more of a "life" do I really need?"


:P

I've talked to Runescapers on Teamspeak and stuff, and the truth is that in the better organised clans, there's no shortage of "wrinklies" :P

I'm a 14 year old guy who played runescape for 2 years. That makes me one of them?

But anyways, yeah I'm kinda disappointed of how RS players nowadays act so childish... then again this isn't the first time this happened.


You sound like one of the decent teenagers to be honest. I started playing in 2003 when i was 14. I didn't have any issue with older people playing the game with me, for that matter my closest friend iv had on runescape was in his 40's. It didn't matter, we were both playing a game, we both had a good maturity (him obviously more than me :P).

But now its 2011, im coming up to the age of 22 so you can imagine, i have grown up with this game always being something to fall back on be it if my xbox gets boring, had a rough day at work... i can come play some relaxing, nostalgic gaming with mature people holding the same intent. The generation of teenagers who play now, as a whole i struggle to get along with mainly due to they always have something to hold against me, even if i had not said a word ingame.

If anyone feels like adding me in game feel free, i know how hard it can be to find decent people to play with on here if you dont already have them befriended.

But yes I fully agree with OP, Your never to old for anything.

I think people that are 18+ should have something recognizable.
Me and the wise old man go way back.... he was a foolish boy back then.
