You've stated your opinions, now it's my turn.

Your opinions are a waste of time.

My opinions matter very much :P

But seriously, I just don't get Runescape. I made it to lvl 26, and then I thought "Why am I still doing this?" Really, it's just a generic MMORPG with a bunch of "OMGliekIcanhaslolzburger!" kids.

thirded.

Its a good looking JAVA game, creators would have wasted many many hours making and fixing it, but its not interesting, just like every other MMORPG, but with little kiddies who's favourite word is NOOB and spend 4+ hours a day wasting their life, full of bots and scammers, etc [/cutout3hourlongrant]

Meh. Let's be honest, anything video-game-related is a waste of time. Battlefront 2 modding is a waste of time. Not to say it's not enjoyable. I played RS for about a year, year and a half, and enjoyed it just cause I found a good community (in tip.it forums), just like I've found a nice community in Gametoast.

Not to say I'd go back to it, but I can completely understand people playing it, simply because they've already committed time into it, and most anything, when you've committed time into it, only gets better.

Ok, I'd just like say some things.
1. Mav's right. Every game is a waste of time.
2. I don't play for "leveling up lol omgawsh". I play for meeting people and being random (woot). Like, you can usually find me standing outside the Varrock bank saying "Selling rare action figures" :P
3. I don't go on 24/7. I go on every now and again. So... when I'm really bored.

I play RuneScape responsibly, and since I subscribed to members, there aren't that many bots and scammers (although I do go to free world to report them a bit)..

And it is enjoyable (at least to me) with all the member features. Also, I'm a moderator, and like to report all those rulebreakers that make the game bad..I don't mind people not liking it, but I'm just voicing my opinion.

And you have to admit, it's hard to find a Java game with more or better content..

I only log in on Runescape for the holiday events. It used to be fun three years ago, but only because I played it with 16 friends of mine, doing stuff together. The quests are kinda fun too. But I'm not paying for something that looks like that, and it bores soon when you're no member.

And granted, your avarage runescape player is as clever as the nail on my right foots big toe.

I actually get asked that question a lot in free worlds. It's one reason why I stay on member worlds.

And a lot of the people you're imitating come through Miniclip. If RuneScape wasn't on Miniclip, where most people who play games there act like that all the time, and most games are 6 months old at the most, a lot of players wouldn't act like that.

Plus, you can't question the wisdom in the self-explanatory "ignore list" feature..

But I'm not going to argue that RuneScape's players are the most mature. I'm arguing that it's hard to find a better free browser-based Java game..

Weekly updates anyone?
Yes, they're members-only, but considering the average person earns about $30000 a year, and membership costs about $60 a year. with those numbers, that's about 0.02% of the money you earn. Not that much if you think about it. 17 cents a day..

For the money, I definitely agree with you, ctg. I played free for about a year, and then switched to members for almost another, which was infinitely more enjoyable. The world was big enough that you could go somewhere to train that was relatively noob-free, and still have someone to talk to. Plus there are some good member communities, like tip.it.

And yeah, I saw mod friends get asked that a lot, the crown question.

Yeah, I guess you're right. But I'm still not switching to members. F2P!

I love this game! its and RPG i think... and a little strategy i think... lol

Interesting that I just found out about this game. Deathrow mentioned to me that it was a fun game, so I gave it a shot.

First impressions: It looked kinda like runescape or something...until I got into a battle

When you fight someone, it is like a 1st/2nd (maybe 3rd?) person view. You can walk around, or ride your horse into battle. The way you swing is determined by which direction you move the mouse while clicking.

It is only free till you get to level six, then you can either start over or buy the game. It is currently considered "beta", but it still is pretty cool.

For a small startup company, they did a fantastic job!

Here is another free game that I found. It is rated M, so it is quite bloody and gorey. It is called "Rune: Halls of Valhalla Gold". It is pretty much an old 2001 era hack and slash with multiplayer. http://runefiles.info/index.php?dlid=191

Lately I've been playing this game
Diver Down
It's a freeware game made by three people over 5 years.
The graphics are "okay"(think Zelda top-down RPG) but it could be worse considering it's only 256 colors
And the storyline .... :yes:
The story is good enough to make a movie out of.
I just finished it yesterday. It's very complete.
Try it.
