2006 runescape vs. 2011 runescape?

Recommended Posts

2006 was the period where I played RS the most. My activity declined a lot in 2007 and completely quitting just before 2008. I just started again a few weeks ago, and the game just doesn't feel the same. It's still great and I still enjoy playing it, but it just doesn't feel the same as it did in 2006. For anyone else who's been playing since then, how do you feel about current RS vs. 2006 RS?

If the last 5 years of updates never occured, I doubt I'd still be playing.

I don't the game itself was any better in 2006. I just think the memories I have make them better. Remembering the old days makes everything seem better than what it really was.

I played off and on repeatedly from like '04-'07(or later late '06) and I just came back short of a month ago. And let me tell you I've been having a blast, this game is still as much fun as it was then, your interest is still not there more likely.

IMO, 2006 was better.

But really, the earlier the better.

I would take a previous version of RS over the atm RS.

Typical responses so the forum thinks your "cool". If you want to state that 2006 is better then today's game then give some reasons, otherwise you might as well post +1 and call it a day.

I agree. People get too worked up over nostalgia. If you people are really serious about it, go ahead and play Runescape Classic.

We do not have to give you reasons, the OP asked for opinions on what we thought was better.

Hm, 2011. Not that i've played much yet this year.

Personally i'd want to go back about a decade, damn, that was a fun time.

This is supposed to be a forum thread, not a poll. Maybe we should stamp "Discuss..." at the end of every topic.

...Really? The OP asked your opinions, yes...that's what the reasons are called...

 

I think the game itself is better now, however I'd love to go back to '05 just for old time sake.

I think that if people started to play 2006 rs without all of the new convenient updates that have occurred since then they'd be pretty damn aggravated.

I probably enjoy the current RS the most. Levels are easier to gain, money is easier to obtain. 2006 was fun and it seems better now, but I think this RuneScape is probably the best.

People don't realize how far the game has come. No grand exchange. No lending system. No assist system. The walking backwards bug. No good bosses. No summoning and so on. The people on this game are ridiculously nostalgic. I'd rather go forward than backwards.
