Confirmed by Guiness: Runescape has the Most Music

Back in 2015 I asked Reddit and the OSV community which game has the most music? The very unscientific conclusion we landed on was Jagex’s 16-year-old MMO, Runescape. Today, we have relatively more scientific proof from the Guinness World Records organization to confirm that collective hunch.

Among the stats that Stephen Daultrey, editor of Guinness World of Records: Gamers’ Edition presented to Jagex was the award for Runescape’s official music count. Including expansions Runescape holds the record for ‘Most original pieces of music in a video game’ with 1,198 tracks. Unfortunately, they didn’t add that up by minutes and seconds so the debate over what counts as the most music can still rage on.

Outside of music, Runescape now holds several other illustrious and dubious new honors including:

  1. Most users of an MMO video game, which as of 25th July 2017 was 254,994,744
  2. Most prolifically updated MMORPG video game, at 1,014 updates.
  3. Most fish in a video game, with eight billion caught in 2012
  4. First MMO video game to release an ‘old school’ version

Most video game-related forum posts per day, which was set in June 2013 when 27,000 posts were submitted every day.
