>pretty much dead with nothing but shitposting reactionary kids and activists derailing threads they don't like

I just want to talk video gamez
>>
https://www.reddit.com/r/games

Not telling you to "go back" there. I'm legitimately suggesting this place to you because it is a far superior place to talk about video games. Anonymous imageboards are fucking impossible.

>dudebros

How beta do you have to be, where /v/ posters are like jocks?
>>
tumblr.com/tagged/video+games

>>433619
I second this. I pretty only much browse /v/ for the atmosphere, r/games has great discussion.
>>
>>433619
>>433647
I regret asking
>>
>>433650
I'm not joking. If you want actual, serious discussion about games, r/games is the place to go.
>>
>>433653
I went on their and the first thing I found was someone saying Life is Strange is "hella better" than Telltale games.
>>
>>433658
...They're not wrong? Telltale's games advertise being about choices having consequence but the choices don't actually mean anything. In Life is Strange the choices are very impactful.

Listen, if you don't actually want to talk about video games, don't ask for a place to talk about video games.
>>
Well, this thread serves as good proof on why the fuck we need to nuke /qa/

Like, out of all the shit, I didn't expect literal Redditors to come out of the woodworks
>>
>>433658
As the other anon said, Life is Strange's choices actually changed things. And if you had an issue with the use of "hella", why? It's used in the game, and it used to be a common slang word.

Also, that redditor was obviously not referring to TT's old games, like Sam & Max, because the 2 are apples and oranges.

/v/'s problem is that everyone is fighting for dominance. They think that everything is a competition. The reason why /vg/, usually, has better discussion, is that everyone will like X, but they will have different opinions on the elements of X, and there's less of a desire to subjugate other anons.

With that said, /v/ can actually have some amazing discussion. But, like /vg/, the participants must all like the game. Without that commonality, there can be no further discussion.

As for myself, I don't discuss video-games outside of 4chan. I just pray and wait for a good, civil thread. Civil doesn't mean hug-box, by the way. However, some people are incapable of understanding this.
>>
>>433678
Are you seriously STILL doing this Reddit boogeyman shit? Do you not understand why the mods started banning for that?
>>
>>433628
Dudebros are cool and actually like their games. I gladly take them over a swarm of rp and shitposting /a/nime avatarfags.
>>
>>>>/vg/
or alternatively get some friends?
>>
No matter where you go, discussion video games on a general level (consolewars, series vs series shit, etc.) is pure cancer. There are just too many factions that are equally enthusiastic about flinging nonsensical shit at your point. Even if /v/ lacked the tumors you speak of, it'd still have it's inherent issues.

Instead, try sticking to very specific games. If you're playing through [name a game] then make a thread about it's mechanics or something so particular that shitters won't bother and you'll only get people who can relate with the topic. I;ve been participating on /v/ like this for a while now and it works.

I fucking hate this website.
>>
>>433653
You sound like those retards that say "Reddit is for serious discussions while 4chan is for funposting". People like you need to get off this site
>>
>>433736
And do you not see these shills trying to get people to go to their shitty subreddit?

You need to stop with the "us vs. them" mentality over a fucking website on the internet. It's quite pathetic.

>OP creates a thread to whine
>people give him good suggestions
>OP starts whining about "cancer"

There's an irony here. I hope you get fed up with the "cancer" and leave. We'll be better off without your bullshit.

Except Reddit is fucking terrible for discussion, since its based on a rating/name system. Fuck off with your advertising.

Nah, no one on 4chan will ever give into Redditors. Stay in your circlejerk

You certainly don't.

There's still >>>/vr/, but it's restricted to discussion of retro games and hardware. Although you can discuss modern remakes, and modern hardware in the context of playing retro games. (e.g. emulation on newer consoles)

/vr/ gets its fair share of shitposting, but it's not as ridiculous as /v/. The board's audience isn't nearly young enough to be obsessed with shit like GooberGate or the SJW boogeyman. It's mostly retarded franchise or sequel wars that get shitposted, like "Hey guiz, Castlevania IV is objectively the best in the series and anything you like sucks!! Now that that's out of the way, let's have a Castlevania thread!"

You must be new here.

Also, stop samefagging. It's painfully obvious which posts are yours.
>>
>>433611
I go to a small (german) fighting game board which is alright and outside of that I just talk to people I got on steam or skype.
I also still use IRC.

Most forums are bad.
/v/ CAN still work but most of the time its better to just evacuate from a thread when you notice that its full garbage, which is the norm currently.
>>
It's weird, I find /v/ to be a perfectly fine place to talk about... certain video games. Anything not ensconced in the zeitgeist of the board; Anything not FLAVOR OF THE MONTH or "weather threads," games that'll always be there and never go away, there is little chance to talk about it. Whatever it is.

Not even kidding, I have had great conversations on /v/. It's just a roulette wheel, if anyone will reply at all.
>>
/v/ is good for finding new games to play, and you can occasionally find niche genre or game threads that are worthwhile, rts or total war threads or something. Also flavour of the month games, although there have been few lat6ely, and of couse they quickly devolve into 'gb2reddit' and 'we never actually liked this game' spam when the game gets popular elsewhere
/vg/, the offical forums and/or the offical subreddit for specific games

>>433658
>the first thing I found was that someone had a differing opinion!
I hope you don't get PTSD
