Runescape Has 200-Million Players, The United States of America Has 300-Million Players

Posted by | July 19, 2012

Just by way of comparison, to show you what those numbers mean. Runescape is a primitive, low-graphics MMORPG that has been quietly grinding away in the background behind the big names of the industry. This effort has been rewarded with 200-million players, which is rather a lot. The secret to Runescape’s success is twofold. First, it runs on anything with a screen, digital watches, fish tank pumps, anything. The second is Runescape is full of new ways to explore the game, either through character creation, to clearing the lands, to socializing with other people. Check out this article about Runescape’s milestone, complete with a great graphic on what 200-million people do in the game. GamesRadar has the story.
