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.

 

 

 

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 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.

 

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".

I'm 20. Perhaps we should start an Old Men and Women of Runescape Alliance. :thumbup:

 

HAHA this ^

 

i'm 25, and i got friends on my list i talk to regularly that are 35-40...

Tweens don't know any better yo :shame: I just ignore them


I don't know which mod did this. I don't know why they did it. If they're looking for money, I can tell them I don't have any as I'm a student. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over 4 years of RuneScape. Skills that I have worked hard for and people like them can't take them away. If they give me my particles back now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for them, I will not pursue them. But if they don't, I will look for them, I will find them, and they won't like what'll happen

I'm a 12 year old girl and I play RS, are there any other 12 year olds who want to-- no, just kidding :lol:

 

 

I'm not even barely the oldest ones but here goes.

 

My name is Sydan, I'm 18 years old and I play RuneScape. :)

 

To be honest, one of the other games I've played for few years is Travian, which also gets called "the kids game" alot. However at the alliance discussion boards/skype etc I hardly ever reckon seeing anyone younger than eighteen. Majority of the players is atleast 25-30. Boys, girls, men, women, grandpas and grannies altogether. I've bet I've got half a dozen friends there who are two or even three times my age. And we get along just well.

 

Actually speaking, in pretty much every game that I play, I end up meeting (and making friends with) alot of older people than me. And like I said, we get along just fine. Kids are kids and I know what it's like. Back in the 2001 when I started (9 years old!!) I could've sweared that no one older than 13 is playing this game. How wrong I was. :lol:

Don't worry mate, I'm 26 myself and I stopped telling those kids how old I am.

So tired of the reactions I'm a no-lifer or an idiot for playing child's games.

I've tried many many games and still I keep returning to RS.

It has everything I need in a game.

It's nearly impossible to have achieved/done/seen everything there is in game.

So I don't mind whatever they say. In 5 yrs I'll still be around, but I doubt they will be :)

Just enjoy the game and don't bother bout those kiddo's :P

I knew some people in my old clan who were quite old, they had a section of the clan devoted to people over the age of 30 and there were at least 15-20 people in it

I am 19, and most of my RuneScape friends are either my age or older, ages ranging from 14 (by far the youngest, and the only one under 17) to 57.

Hmm I doubt many of the high level accounts (130+) are people under say 14-15. All the folks on my CC are 15+, mostly 17-20, but I've talked to loads of people who are much older. 19 myself. :thumbsup:

I'm 19 and have been playing since around 14/15ish. I have noticed that over the years that Runescape is becoming more and more appealing to people over the age of 18.

 

e.g. The graphics are getting better, some or the creatures/monsters are harder to kill/survive against (requiring more patience), some of the jokes in quests have more than one angle, some more mature humour but in a subtle way and some of the items are starting to look a bit more sinister (such as the new Cyclossus mask).

 

I personally don't care if a younger player starts "lol-ing" at me for being a "nerd", i am sure that most of the users on here are not "nerds" we just enjoy the game. Its funny that if you play Runescape your in the "nerd" group however if you play call of duty or halo then you aren't, they are both games...

its because runescape takes yeaaars of gameplay and 100's of DAYS of playing to be good. CoD or Halo takes a few hours of playing to be decent and a few days to pro, and its a lot less restrictive you can call people any name imaginable for the most part.

 

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'm 13---yes, dem tweenz---and I have no problem with whoever plays the game, whether they are 10, 20, 30 or 40. They like it, they can play it. It's not all tweens who are idiots, just about 60% of them :)

i'm 19, and i'm more disappointed with the fact that you used the wrong "you're" in your title than your age.

 

The title is ironic. It's supposed to be a 12 year-old talking.

 

I could type when I was 12. :/

 

I shouldn't talk, I'm 14, but really, who cares how old one of us are, we all just play, lol.

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.

I hate those guys who say RS is for kids, to me actually worse than PJ'ers or spammers. Those guys are probably 8 year olds who should play club penguin instead (which in my opinion is one of the worst game ever), or they are WoW fanatics going to RS to convert others to playing WoW.

I think WoW players are too busy playing WoW to do that.

I'm 31 years old and have been playing Runescape since I was 23 or 24. I still watch cartoons, eat cereal, play board games, colour, eat candy, play in the snow, and smack my best friend with a foam noodle when he isn't looking (hehehe). Why? Because it's fun. If I want to play a pixelized game on the computer, I will. And maybe it's just me, but I've noticed that the older I get, the higher the age for being considered "old" gets. :wink:

 

Now someone please tell me where I left my walker. :P
