    Yeah cause of HD right? Personally I actually like old graphics more... Those were the good times i remember the year 2006 when i joined :) 2008 is when Runescape really turned around for the worse.

    Even with the old the graphics it's cutting edge... how many browser based games have better graphics? Not many... of them few how many have a world as big as RuneScape... none.

    People keep forgetting this, comparing RuneScape's graphics to a client game is dumb. RuneScape's graphics are bad not because the Developers haven't put time into them but because it's pushing the limits of what it's running on. If your going to compare RuneScape's graphics compare it to something equal to it, like other browser games.

    For example compared to the games in our arcade here RuneScape has far superior graphics and it's running on the same base... your browser.

    So like I said RuneScape's graphics are cutting edge imo.

    To me the new graphics just have a weird feel for me in my opinion
    for some reason I'm attracted to the old Runescape graphics. I loved the old runescape emotes..

    The news ones seemed to drive people away even though they look nice... I think it's more the animations people don't like than the actual graphics.

    Yeah the Grand Exchange lets Jagex practically dictate the market... combined with trade limits RuneScape's economy isn't fun anymore. :(

    Same Here, I Never Ever spent 1 cent on any game
    nor have I ask and or taken any from my parents.

    I want to Earn my own money if im going to spend any on a game.

    Social Life, depends if you want it, but life is too short
    Enjoy yourself is a better choice.

    I think these games are addictive because it gives you immediate satisfaction that you can't get out of real life - High level you can reach within a half a year on these games. the xp, the gold, the quests... It's a miniature version of real life, or the life you would dream about... the fantasy... I can get lost in it - eventually you wished it was real life... LOL

    the social aspect mirrors real social life - you have to contend with real people and negotiate - some players will be better at it than in real life, because of anonymity... it's a place where you can be someone else for a while...
