It is amazing to think that the gaming world is flourishing now thanks to the internet. I am not only saying this because of MMORPG’s. Single player games are transformed to multiplayer because the power of internet can do that now. Even LAN games are now playable through online. Heck, fighting games, yes, fighting games can be enjoyed by going up against someone from another country. That is how internet brings wonders to the gaming world. Just like in OSRS, if there is no internet, I won’t be able to enjoy the game and have fun farming so much OSRS Gold.
OSRS Gold: Big But
We are thankful that the internet connected the whole world but there is still one major road block when it comes to games. That road block is language barrier. We might be able to play with players all over the world but since the language we speak are different, the chance of interaction just plummets. Worst case is, people won’t play a game that they don’t understand the language of. Take this story from the OSRS subreddit about players wanting to play Old School Runescape but don’t because of language barrier:
Hi, I’ve been playing OSRS for about a year now. I’ve never played the game before because nobody around me knew of the game, I live in France and people here don’t know anything about Runescape. I stumbled upon this game on accident and fell in love with it when i saw videos of the PVM’ing.
I’ve been trying to get my friends to play the game but since they don’t really speak english like I do they don’t understand what to do in the game. This made me think of how many players we could get if Jagex implemented multi-language.
I’m not talking about different servers, i’m actually talking about making everything text-wise in the game being translated.
I know you guys are probably focusing on other things like Raids and DMM but think of it this way, most of the people that play are american/english or they just speak english and have been exposed to the game thanks to the internet but the people who don’t speak english have never even heard of it.
This could honestly bring the game so many more players and I really really do hope that Jagex implements something of this sort, I know it isn’t easy but it’s something that could be so helpful.
Thank you for reading and have a nice day
This is absolutely sad. It is not because OSRS is a bad game. It is because they cannot understand anything in the game mainly because they don’t speak good English. Hopefully Jagex has a solution to this or will solve this one. I would pay a big ton of Old School Runescape Gold for whoever comes up with a solution for this.
