In my opinion runescape has such bad graphics and gameplay it does not deserve the title "game" but rather the title "waste of time" this is especially true if your a member as if you are willing to pay a monthly fee you should play WoW or even guild wars as it does not even require a fee. One of the only good points of runescape is that it is free.

So, tic-tac-toe isn't a game because its graphics suck even in real life ? ^^ What about Tetris ? You can't define what deserves or not the title of game on a "graphics quality" basis, that's plain stupid. The primary goal of a game is to be entertaining. That doesn't require eyecandy, it's just a bonus.

Also, by saying such a thing, you are insulting both the developers of the game and these players who "pay a monthly fee", IMHO.

Perhaps you could clarify why you think the graphics and gameplay are bad in your opinion? That way other's can try to argue/debate with you. ;)

Well seeing its run on a Java script and it works on the internet with out any CD, doesn't take up disc space and the amount of fun you can have on it ill have to dissagree. Would you like to 10 gigs of hard drive wasted on WoW and also pay £8.99 for a month or Guild wars where again you need to take up disc space Runescape is for spare time - Wow for life.

I play WoW in my spare time and it shouldn't even appear in the same sentence as Runescape.

Runescape, simply put, does not come close to comparing.

Runescape is a MMORPG, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game. Technically, it is a game. But whether or not the game deserves such a title falls into the opinions of players. So the answer is yes: Runescape can be counted as a game. Though some may not.

It's a game. It's not a very high-quality game by any standards, but a game nonetheless.

Because Runescape is a game run through a browser, its capabilities are always going to be somewhat more limited than a game that runs by a CD, or just off your harddrive. Another opinion though is that most games - browser based or not - involve running around hitting things at some stage in the game, excluding RTS's and Simulators. But from what you've written, you don't seem to be too confident in in your statement.

In addition to that, people play it, so it must be a game. That's my opinion.
