this, but i still think family guy is funny
Let's not kid ourselves here: the bulk of RS players nowadays are people who've been playing for at least 7-10 years and have trouble letting go of something they've sunk WAY too much time into. That pretty much means most of us were 12-year-olds who still thought Beavis and Butt-head and Family Guy were actually funny.
idk how old i was, started in 7th grade which was '04

Originally introduced to the game through a very close childhood neighbor back in 8th grade (mid-2009). We went to the same elementary school and middle school... even his parents got together with mine for holiday dinners and such. As of now, we haven't talked in years since attending different high schools and universities. We're not so close now I guess. I remember going over to his house every week in middle school. First thing we did after opening the door was bantering about whose levels were higher. Good times, we were both still F2P.
He quit the next year, but I still continued because it was a nice time sink. While he was exploring/buying all the games on PSN, I kept on training. I became immersed in the game and bought membership 1.5 years after joining. You should know I also had a PS3, but stopped playing on that for the sake of more RS. The downfall is that I never familiarized myself with all the new games in the industry, and that kinda limited some talk at the lunch table. Unlike my friends, I can't name all the Pokemon or the anime characters or the guns in CoD/Battlefield (sometimes I feel alone in that sense), simply because I spent that time in this game. It's a price, but I'll live. It's really okay... I was never the outgoing or talkative guy anyway.
Throughout my entire high school career, I've kept quiet in terms of playing RS. Honestly, I was embarrassed to let it out because everyone was either talking about sports or new games. I started to be less afraid of that when I started college a few months ago. My floor is filled with gamers (Leaguers + Minecrafters + retired Scapers) anyway. Do I regret talking to the people I met through Runescape? Not one bit. I take it as a fact that I played and I'm proud to accomplish the goals I set for myself.
I joined after the supposed 'glory period'. High graphics existed, the GE was a thing, and people killed each other on PvP worlds. I was 13 when I started, now 18... a freshman in college. Although I feel my time in the game is approaching an end, this is a part of my life I will never forget. Maybe my old friend will come across these posts some day, and he'll understand why I kept myself attached to this game.

Also in 2007 the player-base was young, that was when Miniclip and MTV were advertising the game heavily.

Now the playerbase mostly consists of veterans who grew up playing the game. All of the 11 year olds in 2006 are now 20. Most people who played Runescape in 2006 have since quit the game years ago.

I was 13 when I started in 2006. I knew about RS much earlier though, since most of my friends played it at some point.

“People are continually pointing out to me the wretchedness of white people in order to console me for the wretchedness of blacks. But an itemized account of the American failure does not console me and it should not console anyone else. That hundreds of thousands of white people are living, in effect, no better than the "African Americans" is not a fact to be regarded with complacency. The social and moral bankruptcy suggested by this fact is of the bitterest, most terrifying kind.”

Let's just say that I spent the best years of my life on RuneScape and RuneScape-related stuff. If I could go back and do it over again, I wouldn't change too much.
