Runescape has story lines that are expressed through quests and an exceptionally rich world. As others have pointed out there's constantly player interaction since each part of the world is useful at every level of this sport so its not just like starting out you'll be all on your own without a interaction.Calling the game"A little grindy" is so much of an understatement that I doubt you've your viewer's best interest in mind. It is not a little grindy. If you play OSRS gold, 99% of your time between level 20 and 99 is grinding. You have said in the past how the sport is, but in it's own video you pass it by.
The game is so mind-numbing, that it is all but impossible to play if you are not doing something different at precisely the exact same time. There's overpowered gear hidden behind drop prices. The market is largely broken, NPC stores are unworthy and inflation is an issue. The battle system is not deep, it is the shallowest battle system of any popular MMO. Even if these bugs were true attributes, the grid-based and ability-less nature of the combat system cuts out a number of the strategic components of other MMO combat systems.
There's no positioning. There is no build variant or counter play choices. You do need to learn how to utilize a rotation. You nearly always stand in 1 place, fight one man, and see who will click through a list menu quicker. You are also required to purchase or craft consumables inorder to stand a opportunity. There's no level scaling, so unless you're near maximum degree, whichever participant has grinded for longer will constantly win.OSRS is merely a skinnerbox, designed to suck as much time out of it's players as you can, so that they continue paying JAGEX their inflated subscription fees for much longer than they ought to. It is a psychological trap designed to pray on those who are easily hooked on it is drip-feed of dopamine.
It's not for everyone. It's the specific same manner which Stardew Valley is a phenomally magnificent game, but again, not for everyone. Stardew valley gets exactly the same"grind" pretty much, but that doesn't make it a bad game. It is the exact same in Oldschool Runescape, it's a grind, yes, but it's so relaxing just to chill out and grind something for a bit. Not everything is grinding either, you can perform a crapton of PvM or PK (or DMM), or do some minigames like castle wars. And"overpowered gear hidden behind arbitrarily low drop rates" What do you mean lol, a twisted bow is about 2Billion OSRS gp on rsgoldfast.com, which is approximately $1500(?) , that's extremely fcking expensive for something that seemingly has a"very low" drop rate.
