So I download Runescape and upon opening the map see most of the zones are member only. This is pretty disappointing to a new player unsure of whether I want to buy a membership. Is the game worth paying for a membership? Thanks for your help

Worth every penny and it has been like this for a long time.

For me I just played f2p for the first years untill I felt there was not much to do. Now I have been paying a couple euros for couple months and have still have not done all the content there is. Just try to see the f2p as a free demo you can play, and the full game is subscription based

I've been playing f2p rsc/rs2 from '02 - '07 (was maxed pure), then made the switch to members afterwards. Worked on skilling till it got so boring.

I remember the game before there were "member areas." Even then, there was plenty to do, if I recall. Though, the game has changed a lot since I've seriously played. I remember spending days-upon-days playing and leveling up my skills. For the first year or so, the game was completely free-to-play. And when subscriptions came about, I still had things in the free servers that I was doing. It took a long time to get leveled and geared enough to take out the end-game monster (at the time), the Green Dragon.

Coming from a longtime player, I'd say it's worth it even if you don't buy a subscription. And if the game is anything like it used to be, you don't need to buy a subscription for at least the first few months.
