runescape wildreness was pretty much just a glimpse into real life.
people pretend to be your friend and lead you out there to steal all your shit or just kill you. the wildreness is a place filled with dread and joy born from others dread. Kids today missed out on what it was truly like to meet people online and make lil friends… and what people do when they can do anything they want.
It must suck to be a kid now you can play games but everyone is part of some cult you have to buy into and in the old days of RS you were building something you were the mason not the stone but now it is the otherway around with the internet. Everything is already sketched out and you just have to fit into the right place and be a good little [whatever] and not try to forge too much of an individuality.
you really missed out if you never played RS as a kid. The grind is just like real life,would have been cool if runescape had the resources to evolve as time went by building into an all encompassing game. forget "games" you have a "game" and from that game comes everything else a simulacrum that is fun.. but instead we have all this stupid shit and games and machines to play games that you cant play on the machines that play all the games and there are two of these and they are always trying to get people to decide between themselves what way they will go and we have another game system that sits in a corner and watches while its fans jerk him off and more shit games get made and the zeitgeist gets expressed in the games for some fucking reason because the people who make the games figured it is smarter to appeal not to the people who play the games but everyone else and then you have a cultural war and in the end we just want to have fun and have an escape from life but everyones interests get in the way and it becomes a mess.
Gamers need to gatekeep their spaces because you dont want the cancer in them or that is just IT, it is already there but will get worse.
Everyone needs to be triggering normies when they game or the game will only be for normies and you will be banned for not paying for the LGBTQ@+ faggot proide flag DLC or something.
everything will fall down and rot it is inevitable though but we can at least try to keep the kids off the grass while it is still growing..
