    • Nice vid, I started when RS2 just started, around 2004/2005 or so. RS2005 is still the best game in my opinion, but RS2006 was accepteble. I still don't like updates :). I was really happy when oldschool came out again, except for the fact that it still got so much updates, like the Grand Exchange for example.

  • I fell out of love with Runescape. I just couldn't handle how lonely it became. I don't know if that was my fault. Ironman makes it a single player game. Everyone switched to ironman and quit playing and talking with each other. I played Rs for 15 years. I hope you still love it as you always have.

  • Ive watched this probably 5x over the years. I started runescape in 2003 - 2004. My favorite times were around 2009 - 2012. I mean I enjoyed all the years between that but that was when ALL my friends played. 10+ irl friends on.. 25+ other close friends from around the world but once they released EoC..Some of them till this day ive never seen log back on once they tried EoC. I quit for along time. I had to beg one of my closest IRL friends to continue to play with me. He agreed, its been him & I ever sense. We have made alot more close friends since then and alot of amazing times since I started but them specific dates will always have so much meaning to me. Ill never stop playing runescape. I maxed on Rs3 and I plan to max on osrs. Thank you Jagex/The Gower brothers for creating something that would mean so much to me. I look forward to seeing you all for another 20+ years!!

  • when he says it was far more popular than we could have imagined the first thing in my mind is.. this was the best browser, the game with the most detail and content in a browser game many years ahead its time when it released. all this because it was a browser game.
