Runescape is a massively multiplayer online rpg that is entirely web based! Attack monsters, complete quests, the gameplay is dependant on the choices you make in the game.
This used to be a great game, but now it is full of cheating and swayed more to alluring PKers(People Killers) rather then those who actually evolve in their game play. It does make sense though, since this site is now driven by greed. It has a free area which you can get alot of play out of, but if you wish to participate in anything, even bug reporting or player help, you have to dish out the cash. So since PKers do nothing but prey on the weak and steal their items, mostly as groups and also seem to be the biggest scammers and item sellers (real cash offline for objects in the game) it does not appear that anything will change anytime soon.
seriously that aint true because pkers are supposed to be there to make the game exciting and there are no cheats in the games so...
anyway there was no point in writing all that
If you played the game since it came out, you'd know its very true. Runescape use to be a very good game, until RS2/Members came out. It's greatly dominated by offline money and its also true that to participate in anything good, you need to pay. Its full of 12 year olds calling people noobs and stuff as well so I dont recommend it.
