I am thinking of returning to Runescape, its made some big changes since I was last on it about 6/7 years ago. Graphics have gotten alot better and the game play looks a lot better to. But im a father, im 31. Although it shouldnt, I cant help but think im playing a kids game. But I dont want to feel like that, so if like there are people at my age group or older, id feel alot better to wanting to come back to this game. Just wondering how old are you guys that play this?

Moved to appropriate subforum.

 

Anyway to answer your question, I am turning 25 next week :).

Mod MMG shared these statistics 2 years ago, I imagine the average player has become older as there're not many new players.

 

 

I'm 22 btw ;)

I'm 10 this year! Ugh, elementary school sucks. Can't wait for middle school, yeah!

Games being associated with "kids" is silly. As a critic and person C. S. Lewis had the right notion: "childish" is a term more associated with children wanting to be adults, rather than adults doing things kids also enjoy. Also his reader-response criticism method is one of the only forms of literary criticism that isn't genuinely absurd; he could be a horrible person and I'd value him greatly just for that, but luckily he's a bit more deep than that.

So far, you're all just young'uns. I'm 38, and I know there are many others older than me who still play. I've no idea what kind of age range my clan mates are, but I'm not entirely sure it matters. Having grown up with video games, I've never really considered them "just for kids".

 

Now get off my lawn dagnabbit, I'm trying to nap! :P

Coincidentally this very subject came up in my cc last night and it turns out a lot of them are in their 20's as well.

26 in 2 weeks. Been playing RS since middle school. I wonder how much longer this game can last?

And the games been "dying" since 2007. As long as Jagex doesn't do anything catastrophically bad they've got many years of runescape ahead of them.

I'm 19, but I'm turning 20 in about two months.

 

I'm pretty sure I've been playing RS since I was in...5th grade? I know it was 2006 that I started playing, so elementary school.

I'm 27. I've been playing RuneScape since 2001 so 15 years ago. That means I started RuneScape when I was 12, but the game is still fun to play even now :).

I hope so. As it seems to be Jagex's sole venture right now, they will probably do everything in their power to keep it afloat. The news of them possibly selling out to a Chinese company doesn't bode well. I still remember what NCSoft did to City of Heroes, the only other game I remember with some nostalgia besides RS.
