OSRS is far more enjoyable nowadays, for me.

IMO, better economy, community, combat. No MTX, simplicity of the game, nostalgia, accomplishments feel worthwhile no matter how small - less competition, better PR, mobile.

OSRS

3 major reasons:

1. Skilling actually matters, because you have to actually play the game to train them, instead of being able to skip them with stars and lamps. It means that content locked behind skill level requirements are actually exclusive, rather than being paywalls.

2. The amount of dailyscape is so minimal (~20 minutes per day and there are no temporary events constantly, only the occasional holiday event) that you can actually play the content you want when you want, without feeling pressured to missing out on temporary rewards.

3. Consistency in performance; I stopped having occasional crashes, even though my PC was able to run NXT with max graphics at a high FPS, and the graphics don't glitch out anymore at certain places (e.g. character turning invisible for a moment at Hefin course, or some ground textures across the game spazzing out like they can't decide what to display).

RS3 is dead? Only "thousands" still play daily? Check the different Hiscore categories and try hundreds of thousands active players rather. :D:D:D

RS3 is on par to become a modern time living games with live and daily 10-15 minutes kind of events. Players of modern time living games only play like 30-60 minutes an hour. That's why you see "concurrent player" count seem to be lower than years ago. Being a modern time living game is one of the biggest reason why I am still playing RS3.

I love quests and lore a lot. IMO, without the quests and lore, a game can't be called RPG. Good thing RS3 is picking up with the quests and lore department. Although there aren't many quests and barely any lore updates in the form of Quest/Achievement system, MQC and lore based World Events in OSRS, they also occasionally have a different quest than RS3. And those once or twice in a year quests also get a little bit of my interests too.

I don't like pay to win games. That's why I like RS3 more than OSRS. Both games have highly pay-to-win MTX in form of Bond. That's right, players of both games can buy instant gp and items by just buying bonds with real money. However, with RS3, there are other forms of MTX that actually help the players who don't want to buy to win... like TH. TH keys come in free forms. That's the good thing.

The other point worth mentioning is earnable MTX currencies in RS3 also help modern time players by reducing grind time by a lot. This couples with faster xp gain and a whole lot more non-xp or non-grindy Hiscores achievements give "wining" a whole different meaning to different varieties of players.

I am already a 18+ year, almost primodial veteran. I like to see games that are "winable" or actually ENJOBALE is a much better word, to different players, including new and modern ones too. That's why I primary enjoy RS3 more now because I don't want to grind for years or even decades again. :D

I've spent too much time on this account. Have no intention to start all over again.

If you play only because you suffer from sunk cost fallacy, long term you're better off by either quitting or taking a break until/if you feel better about playing again. Otherwise, it's going to eat on you more and more, and making that change is going to hurt even more than if you had done it earlier. Not to mention how easy it is to take advantage of a person suffering from said fallacy. :P
