Love It Or Hate It: RuneScape

Runescape (4)

Some free-to-play games are more polarizing than others, with some sides taking the stance of "great, totally non-exploitative implementation" and others thinking "total pay-to-win trash." We'd like to see on what side of the spectrum the gaming public -- and by that, we mean you guys -- think of certain F2P games, and so we've invented something new called Love It Or Hate It?

Every week, we'll present a new F2P game and give you the option of passing judgment on it. Then we'll look back at it the next week and see what people thought. There are no prizes, except for the satisfaction of knowing you clicked on a button and made something happen. Really, what else do you need?

There's not a whole lot of love out there for Ghost Recon Phantoms, which received about as even a split as you can have. 27% said "Love It" and another 27% said "Hate It." Technically, the score was 73-72 "Love," but that's hardly a rousing endorsement.

Let's go old school today... RuneScape's been in the news a lot lately, with its new mega-super-hardcore DarkScape game mode being recently introduced and being one of the most fascinating things to happen to the game in years. That makes this as good a time as any to get your thoughts on Jagex's old warhorse.

U retry every time they release a new version, but I always find the game to be slow-paced & aimless, no quest chains to tell you where to go next, & running speeds that feel more like tiptoeing. It reminds me that open world games work best when there's some linearity to balance it out.

I was gaming before this title existed. When I got into mmorpgs... I missed this title. Post wow is when I heard about it (the f2p boom). Was too horrid to sub. Too crap f2p kodel so I never bothered.

I like Runescape. It's got a nice nostalgia to it for me. That said, I must confess I haven't played for about a decade. It's the game that taught me that I'm a compulsive leveler. If there's level grinding to do, I'll be doing it. Which is part of the reason I stopped. I wasn't getting anything done irl.
