MMORPGs (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing games) are the most popular games on the web.However some of them can only be played if you pay a specific amount of money to the website.Some people (like me) don't prefer to pay for playing games online , so Runescape.com has introduced an MMORPG called runescape.The game is free to play but you have to pay an amount of money to get the full membership.(but you can still enjoy the game with the free version).
The game features your avatar , whose clothing , haircut , complexion etc is chosen by you at the beginning of the game.(But these can also be set during gameplay)The game is a multiplayer online one which means that you play it through the internet and the other people you see in the game are real characters of other players across the world.When starting the game (after customizing your character) you choose a server in which you will play.Please note that two types of servers exist , one for those who pay to play (these players are called members) and the others for free players.
You have to choose one which is for free players.The number of players , the ping , loot share and other elements are shown along with the server names (the server names are names of countries).If you want to get the best speed while playing you should choose the server with the least ping and the least number of players.Right when your player gets into the game , you have to defeat a dragon (don't worry it's not so hard as it seems like).When you've defeated the dragon and done some other things you climb up a ladder and walk out through the door of the house.You have to do a few tasks after that and then you are free to roam around or to do anything you like.There is a map at the top of the screen , but it only shows places around you.
For a bigger map you have to click on an icon which is on the top right.Along with that icon is another icon which is used when you have to log out of the game.There is a bar of additional icons at the bottom of the screen.You can view your statistics , combat style , inventory , quests , tasks , spellbook , what you are wearing and everything else on that bar.
Mainly in the game you train your skills such as : magic , strength , attack , defence , woodcutting , firemaking , smithing , archery and various others.However some skills are only for members.(those who pay to play)Your combat level increases by defeating enemies and monsters such as goblins , spiders , scorpions , hill giants.You can also fight against other online players and win their items.The most crowded place in the game is a place called "grand exchange" , here you can sell and buy items from other online players.There is also a bank at the same place where you can deposit and withdraw items and money.Money is very valuable in the game and can be used to buy armour and almost everything you need.
I think it's a great game and should be played by everyone who is interested in gaming , by the way if you have lots of friends it's going to be even more fun as you can play with them!
