    WoW or OSRS?

    I've always played mostly pvp (i started wow in 2006) and even that side is a shadow of its former self. Most specs feel like they're missing big components or revolve around azerite armor which is just fluff to keep you grinding away for a certain piece.

    The whole system needs a shake up, maybe with lower rbg team comps like 6v6, solo queue or stuff knows what else.

    WoW or OSRS?

    OSRS for sure, WoW has became garbage over the years. I'm 25 years old and I don't think I'll ever outgrow RS. Join a active CC, hop on the forums and talk or find someone to play with. There's thousands of things to do in osrs although everyone could use a break? You should try that if the game isn't interesting to you anymore. Everyone always comes back to RS.

    WoW or OSRS?

    I've had well over 2 years of active playtime in RS, between my different accounts. This was spread over ~10 years from 2001 to 2011 - after that I did dabble but I can't imagine my playtime since would have added more than a few months.

    I'm 29 years old and just getting back into OSRS due to mobile coming out. It's great being able to take out my phone and do random shit in OSRS, where ever I am, even if it's only for a few minutes. Seeing the updates they've made really makes me regret stopping as I could be sitting on a really great account (side note: randomly got hacked while away from the game - other than draining the bank, they botted on the account and brought my defence up from 45 to 74[!!!!!!] so now my awesome Zerker is a shitty main).

    If there's nothing in the game that interests you, then obviously it's time for you to do something else. I look back on my times duo'ing/trio'ing Arma or other things that interested me and I feel great and miss those activities. If you think of doing things that you once enjoyed and just shudder, then yeah it's time for you to move on...but age isn't a factor.

    I wouldn't limit your weighing to just WoW vs OSRS...there are games like EVE, Guild Wars and lots of other options out there (even games of a different genre like Destiny, since Destiny 2 is on PC).

    WoW or OSRS?

    Most people I know still playing who aren't trying to squeeze out their 8/8M are playing PvP so I definitely agree with you. Unfortunately I'm not a fan of where my class / spec is at the moment and I really did burn myself out when BFA dropped so I had a hard time seriously getting into PvP, but I did have a blast getting to around 1650 or so before I quit. I would have had to invest a lot of time actually learning wtf I was doing and the nuances of PvP and I just didn't have the willpower to do so when I was having more fun in other games.

    That being said, I'm excited to watch the world first race again when the new raid drops, but I unfortunately don't see my self playing WoW again until this summer when vanilla drops. Shit feels bad to considering how much time I invested in this game at the launch of bfa compared to other expansions, but at this point the whole game just feels like a shell of its former self trying to lure people in with RNG and giant time sinks.

    WoW or OSRS?

    I've played both since adolescence into adult years and I prefer osrs. Idk why people even compare them tbh. They're totally different other than both being MMOs. I prefer osrs because I enjoy the simplicity and the availability of it. WoW tales a bit of dedication even to compete on a casual level. Osrs listens to their community more in my opinion as well which makes me enjoy subscribing to Jagex over Blizzard. As far as gameplay, obviously WoW is more advanced but I also enjoy osrs because I can multi-task. With WoW I have to be indulged in the game and I'm getting older and more preoccupied with my real life that I can't always set things aside for it anymore.
