PointlesScape

What's the deal with RuneScape? It seems like a good game at first glance, nice graphics, attention to detail, etc. etc. etc. But it runs out of "funness" after a while. Why?

There is no point to the game. Get exp, earn levels, get items. Then what? Get more exp, earn more levels, get more items! It never ends. So when an update is made, what gets added? More quests, more skills, more items. Get more, get better! That's the only point!

The problem is exactly this: the game is unbeatable. No matter what you do, no matter how hard you try, you can never "win." You just have to keep playing. So what happens? People quit, and never play again.

True, there are people that love this type of gaming. There are fanatics that sit around and play RuneScape all friggen day. But what's the point? To keep playing! This is insane! RuneScape needs to add some way to win, to beat the game, to finish. Until then, I ain't playing and neither should you.

well yeah, it can get pretty cliche...they just keep adding...but, it is a nice way to hang out with friends from afar.

Exactly. It has become more of a chat room than a game.

the only way to truely beat the game as it is, is to get the most powerful members armour. Members: Dragon (sword, shield, etc) or to get the Members Wizardware...and to level up to max in EVERYTHING, and beat all the quests...but since they just keep adding quests, *flush*

Even then, some people see the goal as being the best player, not necessarily the richest player.
