SO my question is: Which game do you think is better? Runescape or World of Warcraft? 
 
Explain why the other one sucks.

#2 Posted by Willy105 (4686 posts) -

Runescape.
 
Because you have to pay for World of Warcraft.
 
But granted, Runescape is boring.
 
ANARCHY ONLINE FTW!

#3 Posted by Breadfan (6586 posts) -

I'm not a big fan of MMOs, but World of Warcraft because it's a real game.

#4 Edited by Bubahula (2197 posts) -

 i would say WoW is better. it costs money but, if your just asking whats better than Wow
#5 Posted by TheMustacheHero (6654 posts) -

Is there even a choice?

#6 Edited by Scooper (7882 posts) -

World of Warcraft--as much as it is a massive timesink and I myself done almost nothing but play it for like 5 months and hope I never play another MMO to that extent again in my life--is a fantastically well-made game.
 
RuneScape, on the other hand is total garbage and I wouldn't play it if someone paid me.

I tried to go back to Runescape after playing World of Warcraft. Short answer: you cannot.

#8 Posted by Akeldama (4216 posts) -

#9 Posted by Lestater (394 posts) -

I played Runescape when I was 11, and now I'm 17.  That is all.

I like how none of you guys seem to understand that he want's us to start a flame war. 
"Explain why the other one sucks." 
Is pretty much asking for people to bash eachother 

#15 Posted by Absurd (2934 posts) -

World of Warcraft has more to do, but it does have a fee. I hate fees ;_;

#16 Posted by Babble (1270 posts) -

What? How is this even a question. Also the OP was asking which was better, not which has a better pay structure.

#17 Posted by Bucketdeth (7981 posts) -

Wow is a real game, runescape is a flash game.

#18 Posted by MB (11298 posts) -

I always thought Runescape was just a game for twelve year olds who couldn't convince their parents to pay for their monthly WoW subscription.

If I had to make a choice, WoW.  Even though I hated it when I tried it out, at least it's an actual game.  I played Runescape when I was like 10, and was a level 40 Miner.  How is that entertainment? 
 
Anyways, this was a failed attempt at starting a flame war, seeing as nobody in the right mind would defend Runescape.

Runescape is terrible. So bad.

world of warcraft, is there even a choice in this lol. runescape is a boring game for kids who want to play a MMO but don't have money to pay for an actual MMO. there is just so time u can put into World of warcraft. 
 
i played it 3 years straight about a year or two ago. i use to be addicted to it. i stopped playing because people stopped raiding because of wrath of the lichking was coming out.

Anyone who says Runescape has the IQ of a shoe.

#25 Posted by PerryVandell (2100 posts) -

Neither.

#26 Posted by pwnasaurus (1286 posts) -

Um yea I would say Runescape is better because with WoW you have to pay for great services, also Wow sucks because it is a real game and the graphics are better also you can make a character not a stick I like sticks. So yea I think Runescape is far better! (dude what the fuck WoW is better but people go to Aion now.)

Runescape has a monthy fee of five dollars should you choose to take it.
#32 Edited by Captain_Insano (1514 posts) -

both are equally lame (but Warcraft is actually better though I have never played it and never will)

#33 Posted by Black_Raven (1759 posts) -

If my life fails then I'll start playing WoW, and if I fail at WoW then I'll play Runescape.

Pretty much. To the people that say 15$ a month is too much. Most people put insane amount of hours into WoW compared to a 60$ retail game.

For one I’d suggest a more tactful approach to such a question if you want to avoid stirring up the fanboy nests (although im sure that was your intention, been alot of that around here of late).
 
I'll try and actually give you a constructive opinion unlike some others (you can pick your jaw up of the floor now), I’ve played some runescape and alot of World of Warcraft in the past, and I won't get drawn into which one sucks more as they both offer something to different people, my personal opinion is that I enjoyed World of Warcraft more, it just presented me with a much more compelling world to explore (and coming from previous warcraft games helped that) and again it is a more modern game with everything that entails.
 
People will always hate on Wow for whatever reason (I’m guessing they have nothing better to do) but it is a great game with alot to offer the player, it’s not for everyone and like any other game it has its fair share of community failings that others will use to attack it, but again that’s there failing.
 
I don't play anymore and when I did, I did so in moderation for the most part, but I don’t regret my time spent with the game at all, and for all those people who hate games such as WoW for trivial reasons, isn’t it about time you changed your tune as its getting abit old, your not being critised for not having played the game so maybe show the same respect to those that have.

There is ABSOLUTELY no contest here. Runescape is ONLY viable for kids who can't pay the monthly fee of WOW.

#38 Posted by eroticfishcake (7780 posts) -

They're both MMORPGs on a highly different scale. You can't really compare them on a fair and balanced approach.

#39 Posted by VWGTI (1919 posts) -

WoW is pretty much the only MMO worth playing if you ask me. The level of quality, the amount of content, the approachability -- it's all through the roof. Yes, WoW is a timesink, but it's also an addictive game that constantly rewards the player.

That is exactly what it is . Basically its there to play until you can afford to pay yourself

Anything with a 'Sole' has an IQ above 70. 
Word Play FTW! 
 
 
and Coming from a former WoW player, After a while, it means nothing because thy both are pretty boring. 
Once I hit 80 in WoW I raided for a few months and then got bored and quit.

This, or don't play MMOS and stay on the side of good, just kidding 
 
But seriously, those things are addicting.

Runescape is a good game, it's the community that ruins it.

wow dude bumping this nice thread.  
 
i played both and well, i guess i could go with WoW. there's really no contest here since runescape is a free browser based game. 
#46 Posted by Buscemi (1106 posts) -

Both games are pretty lame-o by now. Oh, and Runescape has always been bad. There you go, flame you bastards.

You know you can play MMOs and still have a life.
 
I love how the gaming community as a whole complains about people saying "people who play games have no lives" yet those same people who probably complain about people who say that say "You play MMOs so you have no life!"
