Since the launch of Old School RuneScape, or OSRS, fans of the RuneScape games have been asking this question, which Rune Scape is better? If you are puzzled by the same question, you are in the right place. Here is our take on which RuneScape is better.
OSRS launched for one reason and one reason only. Players wanted a nostalgic feeling game that looked and felt like RuneScape as it was at launch. Fortunately, those players got what they asked for. OSRS looks and feels the same as how RuneScape looked and felt at launch, with all the basic graphics and combat mechanics.
On the other hand, RuneScape 3, or RS3, has tons of improvements in the graphics department and features. RS3 looks way better than OSRS and also feels a lot smoother. On top of that, RS3 also has tons of combat mechanics, which helps the PVM combat feel much more engaging. All you do in OSRS is click on the enemy, and that’s it.
RS3 also has tons of quality-of-life improvements. For example, if you want to go somewhere in OSRS, you can easily spend several hours because you need to wait about five minutes before your Run Energy gets restored. On the other hand, you practically don’t even have to worry about Run Energy in RS3. Other things, like the addition of the Tool Belt and Teleport, make the gameplay experience of RS3 much better.
While there are a ton of plus points for RS3, and it is clearly better in many ways, we can’t make a definitive conclusion on which RuneScape is better for you because it all boils down to personal preference. OSRS is for people that want a nostalgic feel, while RS3 is for people that want a modern RuneScape.
