When I first played Runescape I was a snivelling preteen with too much time on his hands. It was the only game of its own scale and size I had access to - all it took was a dial-up online connection and a browser window. As an additional bonus, that meant I could play it both at home and in school. Ten buy RS gold  years on, despite cataclysmic changes and enhancements, its unique brand of overall accessibility is still going strong in a world where free MMOs are trivial, and also you don't have to wait for your parents to get off the telephone to log into.

Related: speaking of free MMOs, here are a few to check out if your Steam pocket is empty. I recently attempted to log into to a very old email accounts, which I could only do by searching down an even elderly login for Runescape. A username can bring back a lot of memories as it happens, especially one such as g0ds1ayer94. Fuelled by nostalgia, I made a new account and started exploring the fantasy world of Gielinor once again.

In the ten years I have been away, Runescape has gone from a fantasy-themed chatroom into a fully fledged MMO, complete with its own annual festival, a card game spin off and enough content to produce 12-year-old me weak at the knees. If you can think it, you need to really download the latest version of the game.

It's a game that's maintained many of its own players via constant updates and unrivalled audience interaction; log for a month and you might have missed something that the community will be referencing for the next few decades.

I logged off for ten years.In that time, Jagex have canned their outdated tutorial island, added an entirely new combat system, overhauled the whole game engine five occasions and stuffed the game universe with approximately 200 new quests. And those are only the biggest changes: Runescape has additionally received around 650 other feature updates in that time, and of course innumerable patches and fixes which have been deployed. The simple fact that Jagex eliminated the Wilderness for OSRS gold  3 decades still feels like an insult into a previous self - even if I wasn't playing at that time.

Returning after so much has changed is uncanny, since basically it is exactly the way I remembered it in 2006. Lumbridge remains there, with its pair of Mischievous Imps still wandering the castle grounds aboard a sea of players barking the same immortal question at each other:"Will u be my gf?" Ten years has done nothing to weather this beast.
