I didn't play Runescape particularly much, spent around 26 days total, but I recently got back into it, just for some laughs and to complete some of the questlines (which are more epic and fun than quests in most other MMO's).
I've spent a lot of time in MMO's, around 140 days total over around 8 years, but I've never felt like it has impacted my life negatively. My grades weren't affected, nor my social life - I simply played MMO's as my recreation, I didn't watch TV or play any other games.
I played Runescape the way I wanted to, zero grinding for the 99 skillcapes and crap like that, just focused on trading, making gold and doing quests. And I found it pretty fun, and still do! I think my strength was realising how pointless getting 99 skill levels was, so I didn't get that feeling of 'wasted youth' like you tools have
Though I've got into more competitive games now, especially LoL.

My account had 271 days played before i quit, about 60% of that was played by me :/
I quit in march 2011, seems much longer than a year ago... But anyway, my reason for quitting was, I fell into a day-dream whilst following somebody into the wilderness carrying my red partyhat, red h'ween mask and 60m worth of other stuff, stacking up to a nice hefty loss of 1.6 billion. At least it made me quit...

Ha, I can relate to every single thing you just said - apart from being banned from the forums lol. Castle Wars was epic - even though I rarely did very well on it, I probably spent about 10 days just playing that lol.
(Original post by internet tough guy)
That game was pretty much all I played during my early teens. Some notable memories:
- 6/6/6 durial massacre
- castle wars (****ing loved that game)
- hours spent just clicking on a piece of rock or a tree to level up my mining and treecutting
- Ape Atoll, anyone else remembers this quest?
- Clan wars in the old wildy
- ''Z0mg Abby whip for sale 2mil each!!!!!!!!!''
- getting banned from the forums
- house parties
- Having a **** fit in real life when I got PK'ed in the wildy and lost about 300k worth of stuff
ahh, those memories
edit: just remembered, 'ape atoll' was the name of an island, and not the actual name of the quest, but anyway I remember doing an epic quest in that place
I think the quest on Ape Atoll you mean is Monkey Madness? That was my favourite Runescape quest ever! I can remember it so well even though I did it over 5 years ago.
Even though I haven't properly played Runescape in several years, I still keep in touch with a couple of my friends from it.
I have so many good Runescape related memories, no way do I regret playing it. Crap, talking about it is making me wanna play it again now, even though I have A2 exams I should be revising for! Must resist!
