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?

22.

At this point, I highly doubt age matters anymore in videogames. Sure, some categories of videogames are still considered as childish, cannot deny that. But if you gave me a dollar for every adult that plays mobile games during their daily commute I'd be swimming in money.

Considering this game is also getting less and less interaction between players, I highly doubt you would ever need to announce your age anyway. If your responsibilities allow you to play a game, why not? Back when I was active on a Nintendo forum as a pre-teen, there was a mother who would play Animal Crossing together with her son, with both of them posting on the forums together. It's all about perception really. Want to play a game? Just do it.

23 RS is a game for older players because few new gamers will play such an outdated game.

My age is confidential

I don't view it as a "kids" game, just a game, albeit outdated. As long as you enjoy playing it, who cares?

22 and I'm sure there are plenty of people around or over the age of 30 that still play this game considering its outdated graphics and the fact that it is specifically geared to older players who have played RS during this era.

I'm 23 and as mentioned above there are plenty of older people playing the game. Nothing to worry about, at the end of the day the game has less interaction and you can play on your own more so people don't even have to know your age in the first place. Just enjoy the game.

Honestly Runescape was never designed as a kids game, it just sort of worked out that way with it being advertised on miniclip and other sites in 2006. When the game first started it was an interesting blend of earlier MMOs but simpler and with a strong economy and PVP. Most kids today would probably be put off by the grind, slow pace, and graphics but I have heard of a few kids picking up OSRS for the first time.

Oh and I'm 20 btw. It's actually kinda cool that the average person on RS is 17-26, makes for a much more interesting community.
