  • Because this is certainly not a phenomenon unique to Runescape, it's essential to talk about how other games --- and other forms of entertainment media --- do this as well, and to identify how, exactly, Runescape does things differently. – Kristian Wilson 7 years ago
  • While it might be helpful, I don't know if this is "essential." Runescape is an enduring game with many examples. There could be volumes of pages written about this phenomenon in other games, but I think it would be best to make it specific. – Cmandra 7 years ago
