Adults in Runescape. Why do we play?

Interesting article on written by a 34 years old player about some of the reasons adults play Runescape. There are more, of course.

But the main point I'd like to highlight is that adults do play Runescape - it is a common misconception that Runescape is just for children. It is not. And I agree with the author, Runescape's attractiveness for adult players is in its flexibility: everyone can choose a way to play the game which suites personal preferences for amount of skilling, socializing and PvP.

Finally, I'd like to point to this interesting lecture about play and its importance for adults and human race as a whole.

Our clan I think ranges from about 13-45 in age. Its interesting that the majority of players are younger. However its weird, once you see an adult, you then see them everywhere.

Just because we're older doesn't mean we can't share in the fun ;)
