A username can bring back a lot of memories

    When I first played Runescape I had been RuneScape gold
    a snivelling preteen with too much time on his hands. It was the only
    game of its own size and scale I had access to - all it took was a
    dial-up online connection and a browser window. As an added bonus, that
    meant I could play with it both at home and in school. Ten years on,
    despite cataclysmic changes and additions, its own distinctive brand of
    overall accessibility is still going strong at a world where free MMOs
    are commonplace, and you don't need to await your parents to get off the
    phone to log in.



    Related: talking of free MMOs, here are some to test out in case your
    Steam pocket is empty. I recently attempted to log into to a very old
    email accounts, which I can only do by hunting down an even older login
    for Runescape. A username can bring back a lot of memories as it occurs,
    especially one such as g0ds1ayer94. This saga got me thinking: what's
    ol' Runie like nowadays? Fuelled by nostalgia, I created a new account
    and started exploring the dream world of Gielinor once again.



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



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



    I logged off for ten years.In that time,wiki
    Jagex have canned their old tutorial island, included a totally new
    combat system, overhauled the entire game engine five times and filled
    the game universe with approximately 200 new quests. And those are only
    the largest changes: Runescape has also received around 650 other
    attribute updates in that time, not to mention countless patches and
    fixes that have also been deployed. The fact that Jagex eliminated the
    Wilderness for 3 decades still feels like an insult into some previous
    self - even though I was not playing at the moment.



    Returning after so much has changed is uncanny, since basically it is
    exactly how I remembered it in 2006. Ten years has done nothing to
    weather this beast.



    In spite of all of the upgrades reddit discuss, slipping back into the same old regime of milling resources and sprinting to the nearest bank to market them is seamless.
