It IS sad guys. Allow it.

Im 19, its so lame of me to play RS a lot of the time. theres so much to do at this age. Id say RS shouldnt be played by anyone personally because there are almost no positive influences on your life. and people who say its fun, is it really? is it as fun as skating down a hill, or poppin a wheelie, or getting some love? no.

im gunna try and quit in the next week cos im moving to france an wanna make the most of it yeah, i know i dont have much fun anymore, other than it being like a second life.

i personally think anyone playing over 6 hours a day at weekends is damaging their lives, no matter what age. i think your lying to yourself if your 138 and playing 10+ hours at weekends. Ive spent 250 days on my account. Do u no what i couldve done wit that? like io just started guitar and am playing like 3 hours a day. i couldve played 6000 hours of guitar and be absolutely killer now! to be fair i probally wouldve spent 1000 hours watching tv but yeah whatever.

but look, if you have kids and oyu play on rs thats something i have a personal problem with. becuase your not just ruining your life, ur ruining thers. I used to know someone with 4 kids who all played rs, from like 6-12. the mother played 10 hrs+ every single day. she encouraged the kids to waste their life, making them nerds/socially inept and ruined her own.

im gunna assume that all the people that grind will all have the same thing, even if their in denial. you may not cancel things to play runescape, but your more inclined to turn it down, or have a night in.. i think runescape is escapism at its worst.

like i said im 19, i havnt played for the last year (just started again) and my life significantly improved. in the past week or 2 ive been out a lot less, got a lot less done in general (am unemployed so its pretty important i actually do something) and had a nocturnal lifestyle. and ive acheived practially nothing in game! its taking me like 15 hours to get from 82 dung to 85. and that gets me the ability to make 4m an hour, except i dont ahve yac. which would take like 100 hours more grinding. its just silly.

i think the older you get the sadder it gets playing, i dont understnad how a 40 something year old couldnt understand this.

if anyone has an argument about why its not sad to play at 40, or if anyone genuinely plays in moderation (like 6/7 hrs a week) id love to hear from you. or if anyone with kids can tell me why its not detrimental to their childhood to play with them.

truth be told, this guy ^ just called it how it is

speaking as someone who once played way too much RS and WoW, took a long break and enjoyed RL only to get back into them when i stopped working - it aint cool yo

YES - you can balance your playtime and enjoy a healthy and productive lifestyle whilst playing RS, but due to the fact that mmo's are addictive by nature it requires a modicum of self control that many people seem to lose when they get 'wired in'

thankfully i start work again on friday, and i'm hoping i'll be able to employ this self control - else my studies will suffer and scape will once again have to go

THAT BEING SAID - it gets easier to be an 'older' gamer [with less time / more responsibilites]when you've already played the game through your youth and already developed decent accounts - you can just hop on for an hour of pking or staking and hop off again without having to worry about the lifesucking grind - whether there are 'better' recreations you 'should' be enjoying in that hour instead of scape is a murky area with all sorts of arguments to consider...

Everybody has their hobbies. If I enjoy playing a game more than knitting, why should knitting be more acceptable just because of my age?

yeah i just said i find it more fun than runecrafting. are you quite old then?? i personally dunno what i think about over 65s playing runescape.. i might well, i dunno. im still sure its better for you to be active at that age than play RS. like my gran is 78n and she bikes everyday, walks, hikes, gardens you no shes jus healthy. but my grandad (rip) couldnt really walk by 70 because of his lack of exercise after about 60, he jus sat and watched tv, which just made it worse.

if your talking about knitting i assume ur like 65-75.. i dunno. if you want the last years of your life to be invested into a game then fair enough. i mainly have strong opinion that 20-50 is a terrible time to play rs obsessivley, or more than 2 hours a day. hell read my other post, i said most of what i think lol.

the only time i ever think its acceptable to no life tho is if your badly disabled.

I'm 23 and I'm in a clan for 18+ only. We've got about 150 members now, and that's after recent member sweeps.

Yeah, I'd say RS is for adults too.

Runescape is like smoking. It's addictive, easy to start up, and is tougher to quit once you hit adulthood.

I'm 19 and have been playing members for 2 and a bit years now.... Most of my friends on my RS list are 18, 19, 20+ I mean - Enaid, Obt, Octarine, Drazhar44 and on and on are all roughly my age give or take.

TBH also this new censor removal does show that Jagex are trying to move Runescape to a new, more mature and older audience.

Also I don't let RS get in the way of my studies at university and can still play it on the weekends to just try and take my mind off my hangover.

Reacting impulsively and saying what's on your mind feels oh so good.. for a little, until you realize you just started WWIII.
