Aye I had the same problem during that second phase you described. If anyone asked I'd be adamant in saying I stopped playing years ago. (and sorry to read about what's happened IRL)

Too much words my eyes cant handle it

are you ok with telling people you still play RS now

 

that's like saying "im gay" so hell nah

Very interesting topic actually. I remember when I used to play my freshman/soph year in high school and I feared any of my friends ever found out that I played Runescape. I remember when football practice was close to being over and I was so excited to go home and scape lmao. Now being 21 years old I love talking about the game to my friends/family. I run a large clan so I tell a couple of my close friends and family all about it when im in the mood. I remember calling so loud one day during a fight and my dad opened the basement door and yelled "shut up" but he knew what I was yelling for and thought it was pretty cool actually.

Reminds me of when I talked to my mum about Zybez/RSC. First time was explaining I had entered the Suggestions Competition when she asked what I was doing (browsing the forums to keep tabs) on holiday in India, and more recently when explaining that I ran the Blogs & Comics Team. Again after she asked why I was spending so much time on my computer (proofreading/editing articles and etc). :lol:

“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.”

Nah, most of the people I work with now don't play PC games, and don't know about the game. I don't know a single person IRL right now that knows what RuneScape is for better or worse.

Nah, but just because it doesn't really come up. If anyone asked I'd probably say that I'm playing RS I guess, because I actually don't give a **** lol

Well, 12 years ago yeah I told people because i was a teenager and it was pretty hyped about in my school. Now the only people to find out I play is whoever is in my house on my PC and will see the clients. Then i'll openly admit to it but i never tell anyone out of the blue

If I meet someone and they're obviously gamers I'll bring it up. Not sure why people are ashamed to play RS more than any other video game.

I used to be quite secretive about it. I'm not afraid to discuss it now with roommates, friends, strangers... just not my supervisor.  :XD:

 

I find that people actually listen if you talk about your journey and how much time it took to get there. If they're avid gamers, they can profoundly relate to you.

 

Most people currently in their 20s-30s have heard of the game, some have played it, however I haven't met a single person (in-person) who still plays.  :-/

Fairly late to the discussion but honestly, I have a very select few friends who do play OSRS and those people I do not mind talking about in regards to the game. The girl that I am talking to right now irl, she also knows I play and when I suggested for her to give it a go - that was a no-no haha. Realistically though, I don't really care too much anymore with who knows what game I play. I've had previous High School friends who also played, so to me, it was a game that people played in the shadows but it truly didn't feel all that "secretive" to me. We all enjoy playing games and this one should not make any difference. But I have fallen off from playing this one in particular. My only interest is in warring and when I bring up RS to anyone, I often show them the large-scaled form of fights that I have participated in and they almost always are surprised at how many people were on the battlefield. The good 'ol days y'know?
