When I first played Runescape I had been a snivelling preteen with too much time on his hands. It had been the only game of its scale and size 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 it both in your home and in college. Ten years on, despite cataclysmic adjustments RuneScape2018 and additions, its distinctive brand of total access is still going strong in a world where free MMOs are trivial, and also you don't need to wait for your parents to get off the phone to log in.

Connected: talking of free MMOs, here are a few to test out if your Steam wallet is empty. I recently tried to log in to a very old email account, which I can only do by hunting down an even older login for Runescape. A username may bring back a lot of memories as it happens, especially one such as g0ds1ayer94. This saga got me thinking: what is ol' Runie like these days? Fuelled by nostalgia, I created a new account and began 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 yearly festival, a card game twist off and enough content to produce 12-year-old me weak at the knees. If you can believe it, you need to really download the most recent version of the game.

It is a game that's maintained many of its players buy RS gold through continuous updates and unrivalled audience interaction; log for a month and you might have missed something that the community will likely be referencing for the upcoming few years.

And those are just the biggest changes: Runescape has also obtained around 650 other feature updates in that moment, and of course countless patches and fixes that have been deployed. The simple fact that Jagex removed the Wilderness for 3 decades still feels like an insult to some past self - even though I wasn't playing at that time.
