We all know that items inside runescape accounts are not permanent. In fact, it is not even our goods. We just borrowed it from Jagex; thus, it is Jagex’s goods. It is their things because in an instance when they decided to stop running the server, all our cyber goods are gone too.
However, why are people obsessed with cyber goods? Why aren’t they satisfied through just playing runescape? Some people even buy rs accounts for the sake of game advancement and achievement. It does not make any sense isn’t it?
Immersion is the reason why people value cyber goods. The dream of being able to live in the past or in a world where magic and dragons exist, these is why we value in-game items.
Runescape Accounts – Life Long Lessons
In runescape, we learned a lot. It is like playing life, a life simulator. We get to interact; we get to have enemies; we get to have friends; we get to learn how to negotiate; we get to feel rewards after hard work; we get to feel satisfaction through accomplishments; we learned how to deal with hopelessness. These are destined to happen in real life. When you go out there, you are not shocked when one of these happened to you, especially losing something important through getting scammed.
A Peek to Reality
Some kids or most kids nowadays are spoiled. They get to peek reality through playing MMORPG, It is world where not all people are nice; it is a world where we get to understand human nature, good and evil.
Kill stealing is one of the best lessons to understand empathy. Through hours of playing runescape, surely, we are going to kill steal or somebody will steal our mob. The sensation we feel when somebody steal a mob from us let us know how bad it feels. And when we understand this, we can now move forward toward world-peace.
