The Lead Designer at RuneScape's, Dave Osborne, alluded to this when I asked him about its continued success around its 20th anniversary. "There don't exist any courses to choose from There are no walled servers that divide players.
It's not a game that's blocked to a particular player kind," he told me in an earlier interview. "Everyone playing RuneScape is able to play anything in its universe. Everyone can appreciate your achievements since they're probably gunning for it , too."
Then, when your first time in Lumbridge there are a lot of top-level players could be playing with you in the future. It's intoxicating. "More than I've experienced in any game, the avatar is my own - it's an amalgamation of all my accomplishments in RuneScape and is incredibly important to the players."
A whole lot of games try to take over your life, however RuneScape is the most transparent about it. The attraction isn't in the stories and quests. When players discuss the win-state the focus is on getting the full range of stats they need to reach 99. It's not a common notion to consider getting all settlements in Fallout 4 to be the final goal. It's about the narrative and the journey. But here, the numbers are all it is. The numbers are all it needs to be.
RuneScape is whatever you wish it to be. It's been able to fit in my life exactly as it did when I was sevenyears old, but in a totally different way. If you're one of those who was hooked in the 2000s, I strongly recommend you checking out Old School and be prepared for lots of different emotions.
In the end, RuneScape The First 20 Years is the ideal holiday gift for that 2000s kid you have in your life. Filled with nostalgia, it's hard to flick through the pages and not want to start Old School RuneScape. However, as you continue reading it's a very poignant tale, since it was a lightning strike in a bottle that is unlikely to be seen ever again, certainly not in the same way.
