>/v/ has never been as popular as it is today
What games do you guys recommend all the newcomers to the site to play?
>Metal Gear Solid
>Zone of the Enders
>Silent Hill 1-4
>Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles
>Max Payne 1
>Lost Planet 2
Now fuck off
Divinity Original Sin blows most rpgs of the past 10 years out of the water.
Calm down. A majority of the people coming here are doing so because the celeb nude leaks, and that's pretty much all contained in /b/.
I doubt the people are coming here because of gamergate are spending time here. Most likely they'll read the gg threads and be too confused by all the in jokes to participate in anything else. Hell, the people visiting 4chan for gg probably are doing so to monitor the threads or shill because they hate us. No reason for them to stay here.
It's the gamergate shit. There's screencaps of people on reddit encouraging redditors to browse 4chan because there's less censorship.
So does this confirm that /v/ is actually overrun with the Tumblr and Reddit crowd? The few shit that I've seen about the Five Guys slut seemed to prove it. I've seen multiple posts about wanting equality, which isn't even remotely close to how /v/ used to think
>There's screencaps of people on reddit encouraging redditors to browse 4chan because there's less censorship.
what the fuck
As much as I hate /pol/ crossposting, their probably the site's best shield against new posters to the discussion boards. Most people feel really uncomfortable around anti-semitism.
Gamergate was literally the worst thing to happen to this board, and now we have the statistics to prove it.
Yes, there appears to be an anonymous hacker named 4chan, he might be a systems administrator and to protect yourself from him your password should be pa$$word so he can't hack you. Somewhat similar situation as the hackers on steroids thing from Fox.
iCloud got hacked and nudes of a handful of celebs were leaked. They were initially distributed on 4chan, meaning the mass media thinks it was a collective effort from the site. Celebs got pissed, and the story blew up.
And the nudes are pretty much all shit, not worth the effort.
Yes because of the fappening. CNN showed that even though computers have been used for 40+ years that they haven't used them. They actually said on live tv "WHO IS THIS '4CHAN'?"
jesus fuck where to can I migrate?
>want to find a new site to discuss video games and chinese cartoons
>can't ask on 4chan because nobody would willingly want to ruin the new site that's not overrun by normalfags
how the fuck did I even find 4chan? I'll never know. Now I'm stuck here with newfag /v/ermin who think every board is the same and shitposting is allowed everywhere
This is it.
It's finally been established that everywhere on the internet is worse off then us. Reddit? Neogaf? SomethingAwful? Good fucking luck.
We're this fucking awful and the rest of the internet is even worse.
>above-average number of female visitors
what the fuck is going on here, moot?
that won't matter, 4chan is becoming the new tumblr
Did they ever stream more than once? I have her on
La Mulana. It embodies /v/ very nicely, especially the parts where the game intentionally punches you with a proverbial fist and lets you fall down one to four floors.
They streamed a few times the next couple of weeks and the cousin did some streams but I don't know after that. I'm not familiar with facebook, do you see her posts then? Ever talk to her?
>tfw there are grills lurking in this thread right now
We're all little girls here silly. Are you implying you're not a little girl?
Here is a question.
You can completely fix the gamer gate issues brought up and all the corrupt. All SJW iCONS go away but all of /v/ culture is destroyed as tumblr, 9fag and reddit all start coming to this site regular.
Would you do it?
If you've never played this game, then you have never experienced the greatest 2.5D platformer ever to be created.
It's currently available on PSN if you don't want to fork over the ~$100 for the original
Nah I don't really use FB myself. But I do see her posts if I ever open it up and go to her profile.
Won't post more though, don't want to get banned.
>but all of /v/ culture is destroyed as tumblr, 9fag and reddit all start coming to this site regular.
They already do anon, and /v/ culture is just as cancerous as what those sites do.
aside from the gay bedtime threads we never seem to have anymore I miss reading some good greentext stories
Why do we hate Tumblr? Because of it's den of SJWs.
Why do we hate reddit? Because they're general normalfags who steal our shit.
If SJWs are destroyed then that would mean that dumblr infesting this place will make no difference, there's just more girls that aren't batshit-insane around now.
And leddit would either have to conform or get out.
I'm sure we're all gonna make it.
You know, when the newfags trickle in the established virgins kind of set the bar for what they should act like.
Their old habits are forced out, they become like us.
But with this many new visitors I don't think that's gonna happen. It's been a losing fight for a long time now, but newfaggotry just launched an enormous offensive.
This is depressing.
i told you fuckers this shit would only bring in newgfags
i told you it would fucking backfire
but noooo we gotta fight da man like a buncha fucking idiots, and failed again at that
this is the worst shit to happen to this board in years
Anti-semitism isn't a real thing faggot.
Those stupid kikes don't get a special word dedicated to them for general racism.
Good job buying into their bullshit.
>Girls come here!
You're honestly surprised?
It's an anonymous board anyone can come and post.
Female lurkers have been here since day 1. They're even here now.
>B-b-but tits or gtfo
Context, it's a "anonymous" board showing your tits takes that away.
Are you fuckers HONESTLY surprised?
oh yeah like you were going to win against anita too right? any any other fucker who plays the victim card?
fuck no, you're working with reddit and /b/ and fighting on twitter.
nothing is going to be won here
>We haven't lost yet. We might actually win too.
You don't contribute to anything son, you are irrelevant and everyone is profiting off of this except for you, get a fucking job. You actually thinking you can change the world, it's cute.
Pro tip: donating to feminists who never made a game featuring some tumblr OC in whats to be a shitty pretentious indie game isn't saving anything.
/v/ bashes Kickstarter and then they go ahead and donate to feminist who played the pity card.
Wow fucking great job. I'm so proud you got yourself redpiled in believing you actually matter
>It's gamergate guys it really is
No fuck off. Gamergate is fucking tiny and insignificant to the amount of press and attention the celeb nude leaks brought. Not only that, gamergate brought mostly negative attention, even people who support it think we're bigots. On the other hand the mainstream media basically said, "Hey, you want to see some nude celebs, I hear you can find them all over on 4chan.org!"
I just don't have the heart for that man. I know we're supposed to be the epitome of angry...
But I just don't have it in me to hate people for being newfags. I can hate the corrupt journalist, the CEO's who hate video games, the shitposters, the pollacks.
But I can't just make myself be angry at people like them. They just want to talk about video games, more than half of us do. I see them talking about CoD or Halo or whatever, and they're fucking discussing things. Lore, maps, missions, favorite games and they're all getting along.
I regret their terrible tastes but I envy their uncorrupted love for games.
You forgot about Vivian
Normalfags keep bringing her up whenever they try and pull the 4chan boogeyman card.
Those fuckers aren't donating to charity, we are. She has helped at least that much with all of this.
I have been hiding threads after threads after threads of this garbage GG for the last 2 weeks.
You guys a pure fucking cancer and need to fuck off already.Good thing smash is in less than 5 days
no fuck em, if they want to discuss video games on /v/ they need to bring up games worth discussing. you don't make a naruto thread on /a/ and you dont make a call of duty thread on /v/
>That's like saying I can't go to a place without niggers just because they keep coming in here
>To turn your own example on you, what are you planning to do? Move to Africa?
There are exclusively white communities in africa.
>Those fuckers aren't donating to charity, we are. She has helped at least that much with all of this.
Holy fucking shit seek help
>worst version of smash
>only available for richfags or shillway users
>You forgot about Vivian
i'm actively trying to, because that was made by newfags for newfafs who think we need some kind of fucking mascot, and then they take her and spread her to other websites and they think "WOW 4CHAN LIKES CUTE GIRLS?" even though she's a deviantart tier original character that some idiots think they can use to represent this entire board
We might win? But at what cost? /v/ will be tossed down the shitter as newfags from all the sites we hate flock here after hearing of our "great" win against the matriarchy. They'll ruin this site and it'll all be the #gamergate and vivian faggots faults.
I just wanted to talk about video games.
few people from Tumblr got together and redpilled everyone trying to oppose them with words like
>we can make a difference
It's the kind of thing you see in big political campaigns too, literally brainwashing.
Everyone opposing was just bombed upon by 3 or 4 active users in the thread calling you a shill or posting irrelevant images while resorting to fallacies.
It's cute how big of a hivemind /v/ is, despite having a hipster attitude about it.
It honestly depends on how they're trying to talk about CoD.
Like, the original? Not a bad game at all, great breath of fresh air where you actually fought with a squad and it was really different than the Medal of Honor one man army stuff you did. Limited health, great gamemodes. Pretty good game.
But when they start talking about how Black Ops 2 was good or MW2 was anything but gutter garbage that's when they need to fuck off.
>Vivian looks generic and unoriginal in an artstyle clashing with the other tans
>other tans look unique and have a gimmick reflecting the console they represent with all the same artstyle
It's like that time 'we' send a card to Nintendo for making us watch advertisements instead of to the people who make the games.
It's just so funny.
>came to 4chan after some bullshit in 2008
>friend looked up the google trend a few years ago
>i came during the biggest spike
now its a tiny little nub compared to this shit. this generation is going to be straight fucked
yeah as bad as we think we have it, reddit's having a much much worse week. which is hilarious. because it turns out reddit's exactly the shithole we said it was, and everyone knows it now.
The /v/'s recommended games wikia is actually shit.

>Suddenly all sorts of shit happens and we are more popular than ever
I really need to find somewhere else to go.
summer is eternal here.
so is september on usenet.
So all we can glean from this is that girls are so much likelier to install worthless bloatware on their PCs that the infinitesimal number of them who visit 4chan nonetheless eclipses the number of boys with a shitty toolbar they don't want still installed
Do you remember the first reason you came? I came because le leguun needed to hack some site
In all seriousness I've been on and off coming to this site since I was like 12 years old? It's funny because that's probably what the average age of /b/ is
Turns out a large amount of people browse 4chan FROM SCHOOL.
Also we apparently have more women than most other sites.
Vivian wasn't that bad of an idea when it came out, but then it attracted all sorts of pieces of shit to /v/ who keep spamming her. I absolutely hate Vivian threads nowadays. I just want /v/ to be back to the way it was before GamerGate happened.
I don't know anon, I think usenet has been almost entirely forgotten by the masses. Well I guess google and a few others keep some newsgroups open, but it's not as if they are giving everyone free AoL disks and instructions on how to find more.
THIS JUST IN
4chan has and always will be cancerous.
no addition or loss of newfags will change that.
>summer is eternal
I'm positive summer is an actual thing, it's just that the traffic doesn't increase because certain people go on vacation or just leave during the summer because of the horrible people that get on it
Finding a proxy that isn't already banned is a waste of my time when I'll just get banned again for greentexting.
At least on 4chan I get banned when I actually break the rules, and even then it's only a 3 day ban as opposed to 7chan's month-long bans.
>A small mass of cancer cells is as bad as a giant tumor the size of a water melon just because they are both cancer
at that point i had known about 4chan for years but i was afraid to go because this was back when everyone thought it was full of hackers. i was 15 or 16 when i actually came on the site and mainly came because i was so fucking bored that summer
i guess thats the reason alot of people come here
>Thinking anything on the Internet had any significant impact on society before the dot com bubble
Gamergate and Vivian have made the world realize 4chan isn't actually as bad as the world thinks it is, and now Eternal Summer begins
I hope you fucking faggots are happy with yourselves. I just wanted to talk about god damn video games, but NOOOOOOOOOO. We have to talk about E-celebs, and journalism
>having to physically go to your router to restart it
been here since 2008 and a btard since I first turned on a PC
my friend just showed me all this funny stuff and gore and porn. It was awkward at first, but I was already chanted by happy tree friends so it didn't shock me that much.
There's /vg/. Still, some of them are /sp/, /b/, or /r9k/, except they're impenetrable because they've become chat rooms for tripfags. They can keep the facade of ontopic because the OP posts take up a lot of room.
>Implying that actually works at all unless you wait several hours without internet
So you never tried it? Works in like 5 seconds.
Not everyone is fat.
Get a different provider?
Redditors really don't steal anything. There is no person who exists on 4chan just to take stuff and post it on reddit. There is some breed of people who go on both 4chan and reddit and crossposts a lot. Probably equal amounts of content from reddit ends up here due to this, and we simply don't realize it came from there. Reddit is hated for running 4chan shit into the ground, not that they "stole" it.
Yes I have, your ISP must do things different than my own because unless I force a MAC address clone with one character change, the IP doesn't disengage and I don't get a new one.
They made an anime about that. It's with cute guys in swimming trunks
It sums up my feelings about this gamergate debacle: Gay but I wish I had friends to do gay stuff with.
yeah nah. reddit stripmines the internet looking for material to convert to upvotes to keep their war economy running. just because you don't, doesn't mean that's not what the bulk of them are doing.
>this was back when everyone thought it was full of hackers
That really was a better time. That title was like a casual filter for the site, hell it made me stay away until I was 16 and even then I only made maybe 5 posts over the course of a year. Once people realized Anonymoose wasnt bad as long as you aren't a massive fucking retard then the floodgates opened.
I think the Jessi Slaughter shit brought in a lot of normalfags and /b/'s whole 'be nice to newfags since we were featured on Today' backfired horrifically. They start on /b/, realize its shit and go to other boards that share their interest. The worst fucking part is they never follow the golden rule of Lurk More so they just shit up everything with reckless abandon.
You can visit a site for an eternity and still never come across a specific topic anon
Then you don't have a static IP, not sure what you're trying to do but ever tried turning off the power?
Why do people always use "summer" as an argument? Do you really expect kids to only browse during the summer and not when they are off school or have nothing to do?
School is not 24/7 work.
But I do have a dynamic IP, it just sticks unless someone else takes it, and I am not assigned a new one, and since that doesn't happen often I can't just turn off the power for five seconds and get it to work. Yes I have tried turning off the power to the router and every other thing that the internet connects to, it doesn't do jack shit.
>4chan was finally fading back into obscurity
>all this shit over the past few weeks happens
You gamergate niggers had better burn Kotaku to the ground and get every faggot hipster indie dev thrown in prison. That might be an okay trade off.
how did you females come across 4chan? genuinely curious.
not even. most of them are happy where they are because they don't care. they don't express opinions, they don't post anything, they don't rock the boat, they just want to see funny cat pictures and talk about titanfall and be left alone.
The only stat on there I'd take seriously is Browsing Location.
They have no way of knowing whether or not you're male or female or what your education level is. They probably use some shitty algorithm that examines the way people type for those two. Between shitposters and faggots, I think those skews are easily explained.
moot should let us spam gore for a few weeks, just to "clean" this place.
containment does not work. Ever. Containment just attracts more of the type that is being contained who eventually spread to other boards.
The only thing that truly works in this format is a sort of uniform cultural predisposition towards not being complete shitheads.
Since nether the aforementioned nor competent moderation will never happen, all boards will be /b/ once they reach a certain size.
When he fuck is moot going to restart 4chan with only /a/, /v/, /new/, /b/ - anime/random and /co/?
>everything else is N/A and unknown
feels good being heavily paranoid for once. can't track me for shit, google. i don't even type out the captchas correctly
>wanting normal scum polluting the already shit threads
I knew this was going to happen.
Why didn't you listen?
I'm on a pretty nice chan that gets decent traffic and has fun threads, but I'm not posting it because this shithole is full of reddit tards that would infest it. Good luck guys, I hope you find your way there.
>because its a den of SJWs
>Because they're content stealers
These sound like generalizations.
Obviously there's some truth to it, but honestly its pretty stupid to hate a site just because some of the people on the sites are doing stupid stuff. Even Tumblr and Reddit have some good things about em'. Its not all black and white, and hating on random websites for these reasons is stupid.
the only boards that could possibly be majority female are /cgl/ (the only one i know 100% for a fact is mostly girls, but they're disgusting and fat and tumblr), /ck/, /an/, /fa/, /co/, /lgbt/ ("girls")... notice a trend? they're all tumblr's favorite things
You brought this onto yourelf. You wouldn't stop with that #GG bullshit.
