Good luck peepo! Also ignore Gary Gilbert. He knows where Varok is. He is just lazy.


ArrgsVsZuk

This series is the first thing from Jimmy that has made me excited for his videos. Just captures something hilarious about the world of runescape that no other video is capturing. A bizzare social landscape that is very 2000s chat room and that most of us were unaware was even happening.


Mukea

There's very few YouTubers who's videos I get actually excited for, but I sure do for those ones. They're so much fun.


JmacTheGreat

I enjoyed By Release a good bit, but honestly my fav videos of his are his random rants, and breakdown videos


V_T_H

By Release was genuinely awesome to watch when it was tickling the nostalgia button and when his account was super restricted. Seeing him do quests I was doing in 2004 in a 2004 “setting” was fantastic, but now that he’s doing quests that came out recently and not really restricted anymore it lost a bit of its luster. The videos after the Barbarian Assault video is probably when it kinda wore down a bit for me, but I stopped playing RS2 in 2005 so it at least kept me interested for two years of content beyond that point. I think he knows that, and that’s why he puts such a huge amount of effort into editing and talking about the quest lore now (as opposed to early on when the videos were barely edited since the content spoke for itself with the nostalgia rush). And I think part of the charm is Framed and Settled shit talking him on Discord during it. It’s still a quality series and I watch it when it comes out, but I think he’s at his best now when he’s just fucking around with people (not just Gary Gilbert but also the videos where he was learning raids or “PKing” with 9Rain). It really lets his humor shine.


codeklutch

J1mmy is just good ole fashioned stick a thumb up your buddy's asshole fun. Not to mention he puts out some fucking bangers.


JmacTheGreat

Yeah, well said


AlmostAnonymousDylan

What series?


CannedOrMashed

https://youtu.be/paExDoWOM0Q I think this is the first of the series.


Archer10214

Damn dude I just watched that and was laughing so much. Just made my day tbh lol


FetusViolator

That was a very good followup to reading OP's comic. I don't play anymore but the amount of nostalgia I've recieved in the last 10 minutes is lovely


Armthehobos

I’m glad he started doing a girl version and I’m 100% sure he’s cut out super gross stuff that happens to girl gamers


Merry_Dankmas

Absolutely. Seeing the degeneracy of F2P right out the gate when he's playing as Gary rivals that of WT. The levels of scum and villainy that his female character experiences must be off the charts.


doctor_krieger_md

We know about f2p shenanigans, we just prefer to ignore them.


Toniqx

That’s just 3 time academy award winner Daniel Day-Lewis in method for his next role


fitmedcook

God I wish I were that happy


Splintrr

This level of happiness is pretty on-point for my 2004-2008 RS adventure, wish I could see that peak again


EurekaEleven

Sadly that level of happiness was related to discovering how big the world was when you realized everyone in the game did not go to your school. You attribute it to Runescape because that was your introduction to it all. It's the fatal flaw in the mmorpg genre. Every game developer is trying to recreate the feeling of discovery and every consumer is chasing a high that they can't ever chase again. You can only experience this through others. Have children is what I'd recommend.


TomaTozzz

Don't enjoy Runescape anymore? Make babies!


EurekaEleven

Time investment. You can teach them to alch your items and do other menial tasks.


Operator_Of_Plants

I somehow convinced my son that agility is fun.


EurekaEleven

"Every mark of grace you pick up, count it out loud. When you count 5 marks of grace, show me and count them out for me. I'll give you a cookie for each set of 5. Let's count as high as we can go!!! You got this, champ."


FixGMaul

I'm calling CPS


GimmeAGoodRTS

You are just jealous and want the cookies for yourself.


EurekaEleven

I swear officer, no child labour here! We are learning numbers!!! No please don't take my son, I need more crystals!!! No not that crystal. You don't understand. Without the crystals I run out of energy officer!!! No, why are you handcuffing me??? I just need crystals to make my special energy drink!!! I need a lawyer.


1sagas1

Every 5? That’s only like 20 minutes. Set the bar higher at 10


EurekaEleven

You might find 5 marks of grace in 20 minutes but a child does not have the ability to min-max clicks like you or I, nor the attention span.


Tomnnn

Tangent: it's also permitted to run multiple accounts. I didn't know this was in the terms of service, I wish I knew back when I played. I'm tempted to play again. Annoyed by the inefficiency of mining/wc/rc and banking? Use a second account to mule for you! Having fun in the varrock sewers and don't want to come up to restock on food and bank the loot? Have your second account cooking while you're fighting and then bring down supplies & mule your stuff to the bank! Something about that really appeals to me and I'll probably end up coming back to try it, even if only for a little while.


EurekaEleven

Hey man, whatever makes your game experience more enjoyable without negatively affecting that of others I would say go for it.


Tomnnn

I think modern me is too tired for gaming right now lol. I feel like I want to, but when I get the opportunity I don't


EurekaEleven

As children we think about all the fun things we are going to do when we don't have to listen to parental figures. As adults, we are too tired from being a wage slave/exhausting post-secondary education to have energy for much else. As parents, we do what we can to moderate what our children do to appropriate levels of time because we realize from our experiences that this is the best way to prepare their expectations and how they will react when they aren't met. I used to hate my parental figures for limiting my screentime, but now I see children who aren't limited and think poorly of their parents in response.


Tomnnn

It's complicated, but that's probably a safe default. I don't know what the rate of success is, but I got all the screen time I wanted - and I definitely wanted it in excess. I attribute that success to my screen time being driven by a desire to make and play games. I've been (eye)balls deep in screens since I was 4 and now I'm 30. I'm old and tired, but I've got a remote programming job I can do while half asleep - which I did last night because a meeting ran until 1am lol What a wonderful tangent on a subreddit dedicated to a snapshot of a game that was forked by popular demand. Truly a community of wonderful people who lived through a wonderful time. Hmm, I think the bad tuna I ate yesterday is giving me emotions. I have an almost euphoric appreciation for everything in my field of view right now.


1sagas1

Yeah but you’re paying twice as much for membership


9thZodiac

Start your own “bot farm” 😂


shmootz

You are partially right. Each game introduces a new world, but if that world is pretty similar to what you already know, then it doesn't trigger the childish exploration. Valheim was a great example, that game did a really good job with the sense of exploration and mystery. Seeing the giant leeches squirming in a swamp towards me was enough to put chills down my spine.


jakelikesreddit

Valheim was the first game to give me that sense of wonder since Minecraft was released and Minecraft was the only other one to do that for me besides osrs


Saigent

If you haven't played/seen Subnautica, dont look anything up. just yolo it. I found it gave me the same sense of wonder as RuneScape Minecraft, and Valheim. I would highly reccomend it.


jakelikesreddit

Fuck yeah, I’ve been on a real big osrs/ssbm grind recently but I’ll check it out! Thanks pal


SlipNSkip

Dunno what the pissfit is about, you’re absolutely right. Runescape was a second living breathing world at that age. We’ll never feel that initial rush of spawning into lumbridge surrounded by 40 people just as lost as you. It was an incredible feeling, but it was never sustainable.


sdn

Ooph. FFXI is my drug. :(


kurttheflirt

I still really enjoy this game. I do take long breaks when I get bored but I come back. If you aren’t enjoying its time to take a break for a long while

Previous-Answer3284

>Every game developer is trying to recreate the feeling of discovery and ever consumer is chasing a high that they can't ever chase again. That's true for games you've already played I guess, but plenty of developers nail that sense of exploration and discovery. I played through Outer Wilds a little over a year ago, and it was hands down one of the most amazing experiences I've ever had with a video game. Completely different type of game than an MMORPG, but I was just as amazed with the game world as kid me was with Runescape.


replies-lol-if-dumb

Every consumer? Speak for yourself weirdo.

robboelrobbo

I was with you until the last bit. You know the world is ending right?


jwillbrand

Agreed, It was a much better time to have kids in 1400


ClassicPart

By that logic everyone should just cut to the chase and stop living. This is sarcasm, because I feel like you'd read that and unironically go "yes, this is a marvellous plan."


knowyourboo

The world is always ending


GuggleBurgle

Yes yes, we're well aware that the last chance to stop the impending climate apocalypse was 70 years ago by forcefully reverting the working class to a pre-agricultural society Yes, we're aware that the only remaining hope for survival is for the working class to give up all their possessions to live in 10sqft rental pods subsisting on a diet of enriched-rice-and-cricket-slurry gumbo while nature reclaims the earth.


Solo_Hayden

You must be fun


EurekaEleven

My life motto is to control what I can and not stress about the stuff I can't. I don't use plastics where I can avoid them and I don't drive. Not much I can do otherwise in regards to the climate. The solution to the potential depopulation of the human race definitely isn't to not have children though. If you're referring to nuclear stuff then I live in Toronto so any nuclear attack will kill me and any potential family instantly anyways.


ariolitmax

Why is Toronto so high on the nuke list?


EurekaEleven

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_North_American_cities_by_population


ariolitmax

Sorry, I asked for the nuke list


EurekaEleven

Yeah let me just text Iran, Putin and Kim Jong Un and ask them for you real fast. Or we could just use rational thought and think about how large civilian populations would be natural targets for nuclear war??? Like Putin is already bombing civilians... [I wonder if there is any precedent???](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atomic_bombings_of_Hiroshima_and_Nagasaki) OR We could not go off on this weird tangent and you can use something other than hyperbole to make a point lol


ariolitmax

You should probably take a break from the internet if this is how you are lol. I don’t think there’s anything rational about assuming Toronto will be specifically targeted. It’s also weird for you to single out two leaders and then also an entire country as the perpetrators of this hypothetical war. But you’re clearly not up for a discussion so, have a day. Edit: re: your ninja edit, why didn’t they bomb Tokyo or Osaka, which had ~7mil and ~3mil at the time, whereas Hiroshima and Nagasaki had 300k or less? Could it possibly be that more than population alone factored into that decision?


robboelrobbo

Hmm, all I can do is feel sorry for your kids I guess


EurekaEleven

No one is asking for your feelings one way or the other, you can also just keep them to yourself!

i_hate_fanboys

Three months ago I died. I used to be an accountant, had a wife, a kid and a second kid on the way. I would certainly say I was a happy man, until my life was taken away in a freak accident. I did not feel any pain and don’t remember anything other than looking up. I was an atheist and did not believe in an afterlife. And yet, there I was. After what seemed to be several minutes, I opened my eyes and the sky was black. I knew this place… I was in Lumbridge. Why was I in Lumbridge? Was I dreaming? It took some time to process but I figured I was not dreaming. I had had false awakenings before during lucid dreams, but this was nothing like it. This was as real as the phone or monitor you’re reading this on. I started thinking about the possibilities… respawning as a Runescape player wasn’t the worst fate. I knew the game in and out, this could go well. I began to panic as I realised something. Runescape is started on tutorial island. Why am I in front of the castle and not on tutorial island? I look at my arms, my clothes, my legs… I am a level-3 man. I try to walk away but I can’t move further than a short distance. I try to walk every way I can but my body won’t move any further. Several days pass by. I am not hungry, I am not thirsty and no one has talked to me yet. Several more days go by. Several weeks at this point? I can’t keep track of time. There is no sky. I stand all day and night and yet my body does not tire. What have I done to deserve this? Dear God, please give me something to stimulate my existence! I need to feel anything, anything at all! Ocassionally, players come through. New players, bots, old players who used home teleport and had to do a walk of shame. I used to look at them hoping for them to come my way, but my mind has gone numb. Finally, a player comes my way! Is this real? Has God heard me? The player looks nice. He punches me. For the first time, in a long uninterrupted darkness, I feel something! Pure joy overcomes me as I punch him back. He punches me again. This time, it hurts. It actually hurts quite badly. He punches me again, no feeling this time. As I punch him, he punches me. Some of his punch hurt, they hurt terribly. I feel myself dying. It hurts so much. I intentionally try to hit him back as lightly as possible so he will win the fight and end my mysery. It hurts so much. Finally… I am dying. I close my eyes, screech and fall to the floor. I open my eyes. I am standing in lumbridge again. Several meters away from where I died. The guy who just killed me, now agressively beating up a woman. He killed the woman. He is running towards me. I am frozen in terror. He is going to kill me again? No, he runs past me. I assume he needed something… maybe coins to pass the Al-Karid gate. Wait, he just ran past me to kill another man. He’s coming for me now. It hurts so much. I am dying again. Two times I have been killed now. Three times. Four times. I lost count. Every time the pain intensifies. I know nothing but pain. I spawn, I witness my fellow men and women die. I die. An eternity has passed. I have forgotten everything. I cannot tell how long it has been, but I have been killed thousands of times. My mind is broken beyond repair. There is only one thing I know. One fact that ties me to the world. The players name: Limpwurt. Why did I deserve this? Why is it only me who is being tortured? What did I do to deserve this faith? Wait a second… all this time I have been assuming the others were NPCs… and if they’re not, what have I been doing all this time playing Runescape?

Ugh this gave me nostalgia. I can still remember aimlessly clicking around as a kid just having so much fun fighting goblins with a bronze scim that I made for hours. Was way too young to dedicate time Into one task - so one day some random kid was having a drop party outside Varrock big bank, and I didn’t get anything. 11 year old me tells him that, and he gifts me full addy gold trim. I wore that around just talking to people for months thinking I was the coolest guy in the game.
