So, what's your favourite vidya forum apart from /v/ and why isn't it NeoGAF?
Can you recommend some good place?
>and a 16 page "Truly, Ellie, we are the Last of Us" thread
>giant Adam's apple
The last thing about that place that stands out in my mind is that Max finally stepped down as a mod. Think I saw him banned as well for finally being too reactionary. Was that a permanent thing?
it's sad that his points on pc gaming are kinda true
most recent game i played and had problems was sleeping dogs and i think most (if not all) games i had issues with, were either console ports or multiplat
Hearing that isn't such a big deal that it made my night, but I'll go crack open a bear over it. He was ridiculous as a mod with what he'd allow depending on whether or not it supported or challenged his political views, and insufferable once he no longer had moderation powers.
Damn that loli is cute as fuck.
Would hug and play girly games with her.
Imagine if those faggots saw the 'aroused' form of that card.
Thinking about how his mental state degraded once he stepped down and resorted to outright shitposting without reading (and stuttering out straw arguments with his circlejerk friends), I actually miss
Lankist, and remember how one of his threads was closed not outwardly because of its content, but because the posters who disagreed with him just shitposted and shitposted until they got the thread closed (like they kept suggesting pages earlier) As for SigmaLambda, I don't think much of him either. Just another of the shitpost brigade who was careful enough to not get banned for it. I'm glad the site is seeing backlash over that kind of attitude.
>japanese culture expert
i want to kick that faggot's ass so hard
he doesn't know fucking SHIT
I don't understand why but for some reason it legit attracts psychopaths/retards.
SigmaLambda is probably functionally disabled or something judging by his attitude, same goes for p.much everybody else who actually agree with him.
>milkandcooki starts talking about his fur-con experiences in random threads
>mfw people find all of his commissioned fat art and take the piss
I used to post on Giant Bomb regularly back in 2009. It was alright but holy shit has that whole community turned to shit. Thank god for the google doc so I don't have to spend anytime over there.
Bear in mind it's the home of Garry's Mod and Rust, which takes a lot of people in both columns. A lot of other people like that were sucked in for other reasons, but part of it might be that as the weirdo quotient build up they started opening up and forming their identity (keyword, this) there around it, attracting other people who felt the same way.
>Its really offensive to say you're not attracted to transgendered people.
Wow. You offended me.
Wow. You don't like dick? You're a bigot!
Wow. You don't want to fuck me because I have a penis? You're a massagernest.
I like both Nintendo and normal stuff. Disregarding one side completely is retarded.
I'm not a nintendrone in the sense that i don't play non-nintendo games, i'm a nintendrone in the sense that i agree with nintendo's philosophy about games and think gamers that care about maturity are giant retards
I don't think that makes you a Nintendodrone.
Tell that to the elitists on GAF.
Yeah Loli shit is retarded but I wouldn't call it "pathetic" or "disgusting."
why is the lgbt so toxic? I have a few trans friends and they aren't nearly this bad, they don't shove their shit down everyone's throats like these guys do.
I have a Neogaf account, but never used it because it took a year for them to activate the account, and in that time I learned what a terrible place it is
I kinda want to use it to fuck with them and get banned
Post really extreme SJW type posts and see how long you last. You'll probably blend right now.
Fuck no. The only praise I've seen about GAF here is about specific sub communities like the MGS and Smash ones.
hell no, gaf is a shithill filled with biased mods and shitty posts. I guess the guy is referring to who we "agree" with them during certain events, like the Xbone DRM scandal, but the whole gaming community agree on that, not just GAF and /v/.
Can I add you on Steam? I know the forum pretty well and would love to collaborate with you.
I only read Neogaf for the news, and not the opinions of its people.
And I'm a Sony fan too. The place is such a god damn hugbox hivemind where everyone is in fear of mods its hilarious.
Shit's like East Berlin over there.
I'll give it a look.
I use Neogaf because you'd be surprised how much Video Game "Journalism" Just uses Neogaf as a source for its news.
I mean to be fair, they were the first to leak Project Beasts.
allgamesbeta is 99% just reposted info off of breaking news from neogaf. Im sure agb sources siliconera and such but I mainly go there because they cut out the bullshit with a nice presentation for news
post your steam, then. Fellow gaffot here that just wants to fuck shit up and be subtle about it
Neogaf is almost the left-wing equivalent of /pol/ at this point. I've seen plenty of white guilt, "you're a terrible person if you wouldn't fuck a tranny", and double standard threads.
For fuck's sake, somebody made a thread explaining how he went to a store, and a few hours later one of the employees obtained his contact info from the store and tried hitting on him. If it was a guy doing that to a girl, everybody would be screaming "HOLY FUCK RAPIST DETECTED ARREST HIM", but since it was the other way around they went "lol yeah he shouldn't turn her down!!"
The Dax01 stuff is hilarious simply because I think trannies outnumber women on Neogaf at this point.
Neogaf is filled with the biggest crybabies out there, they can't hear the word "faggot", "nigger", or "tranny" anywhere online or off without blogging about how much it hurt their feelings and how everybody outside their little hugbox is one big bully.
>Thread for finding another place to talk about video games
>No other place is suggested and everyone just talks about how terrible other sites are
>NeoGAFShitposts twitter shut down because shitposting became so common even the mods were doing it
I remember stumbling on a Neofag thread once where it was 15 pages of people crying about how offended they were that the OP's roommate's dad used the word "oriental". I'm Asian and it was so cringeworthy seeing a bunch of white sub-urbanite millennials being offended on behalf of everyone.
nothing against dax being a transgender, but i hated how people were shitting on the indian that changed sex because dax was oh so much better and cool. And you know what? most likely if it was a white dude saying "eh, i've seen betters" he would be banned on the spot. Dax only wanted attention in that thread, i've never need to tell my gender to anyone on the internet to get my opinion heard, but saying that you are trans or woman makes you free of getting banned.
The worst thing was "oh you are terrible if you wouldn't fuck a transexual" because it's completely natural to not be attracted to someone after discovering this.
That shit goes to absurd degrees. Someone PMed a friend of mine and warned them that they were using offensive language because they said 'trap'. It wasn't even in the context of transgenders, it was just a normal usage of the word.
I'm a member of NeoGAF, and why I don't have a problem with most of the normal members, I do sort of get rubbed the wrong way by the Mods...it's not the "sjw!" stuff or anything, I mean they just always seem to want to impress people no matter what the topic. I never see most of the mods post normal replies, it always has to be them one-upping the "normal" members.
Although, honestly, every forum I've been on the normal members seemed way cooler than the mods. And likewise, when a member became a mod, they changed.
>i'm a member of both EvilLore's and the Pomf's forums fml
>that one thread about akiba strip ehere they thought "trap" was offensive
traps are the dudes who like to crossdress and are convincing
Trans are the dudes who think they're the opposite gender. Sometimes it's genuine but most of the time it's just losers on tumblr who think being a girl/guy will make them happier
Perfect example of this is the difference between Shouta and EmCee. Both were cool, chill posters before they became mods. Shouta remained that way and still just chilled out in the fighting game threads and acted like a normal person. EmCee barely posts anymore and when he does it's just threatening to ban people and close threads.
It's not surprising that the "gotta impress people" mentality is popular among mods when all Evilore does is try to get sick burns on people and shitpost.
I go on neogaf either for purely dev reasons (indie here) or just for pure game discussion when I just want to avoid constant confontation (not that I dislike it, but sometimes you're just ill or tired or something) but every other place has become a better alternative now because of the mods there.
There's always kind of a problem with forums who uses ID but neogaf it's just so damn apparent due to the restrictive nature of the account that the mods have a fucking hardon for power the moment you cross their path.
It's not even that good of a source for development meeting anymore since there are alternatives all over the place now. It's a giant circlejerk
The worst thing about evilore is that he just act smug as fuck even in the [email protected] e-mail, you can't send a complaint without the response being a sick burn attempt.
There's literally this guy that comes into every 3DS thread and mocks it while spouting about how much more amazing the Vita is. He's such an obvious viral marketer it's almost disgusting, yet he hasn't been banned ever.
It's really a shitpool over there.
All of Holy Baikal's posts are walls of text that start off being related to the topic and by the end it always comes back to "I wish I was a little girl.." it's fucking hilarious, he's never going to get banned unless he posts CP or something.
>i only play mature games for myself picture
holy shit. that's me .
I never even said that though.
i turned out to be a prerty cute boy though.
Judging from that GB stream he was on and that cringeworthy Euro trip he blogged about, he seemed like a giant autist that tries to act tough online but is a bigger beta than /v/ when it comes to any form of real life interaction. Neogaf is basically his entire life, it would be easier to feel sorry for him if he weren't such a huge cunt all the time.
The guy with the Deus Ex avatar (EmceeGamer I think his name is?) used to be one of the funniest, best posters on the sight. Hell he'd mock any extremist be it Sony or SJW or Nintendrone.
Then he became a mod and literally every single one of his posts now is some condescending smarter-than-thou reply to any given normal poster who has a different opinion from the masses.
Power corrupts, people.
smokeydave's one of the "too many people like him/find him funny to ban" guys like holybaikal, his entire gimmick is shitposting in 3DS threads and droning for the vita in media create threads. the vita community would feel like the mods hated them if they banned him
First time I've seen it and I've been here a while.
seems like it was posted on neogaf though.
do you have the original pic? I'f so I will post my face to show you it's me. will do the same expreession
He's banned right now at least, as of last week for more of his straw-n'-shitposting.
yeah, i think that neogaf has a lot of great things, but the way mods handle differing opinions create dull threads in regards to "controversial" threads, you know? if you have a thread about x thing, you need to have the "right" opinion, or otherwise people will fight with you just to have their good karma points on check.
I mean, yesterday there was a thread about "what would like neogaf to improve on?" and some of the suggestion were options and all, but one of the most requested was a better mod staff, so it shows that the userbase isn't happy with the moderation, most of them just learned to not post on controversial threads or use any kind of slur because you'll get banned
Piss and moan about NeoGAF all you want, but there's no better place to find all of the day's relevant gaming news congealed into one place. Yeah, most of the posters are industry-cock sucking sycophants, but it's always funny to see them lose their shit whenever someone dares to speak about one of their beloved publishers/devs in an unflattering manner.
/v/ is good as a counterbalance. If the average GAFer is overly sympathetic to the industry and averse to criticism, the average /v/irgin is just a miserable fuck that will always find the worst in any situation and only take pleasure in failure and sadness. I say that as a compliment, actually, because it's nice to be in a place that has a zero tolerance policy for bullshit.
It`s idiotic. Either you like sleeping around and find a woman who's the same or you want an exclusive sexual relationship with your guy/girl. Mixing these two means either being a giant cunt or letting your spouse emotionally abuse you.
>it's the equivalent to saying "I'm not attracted to asians"
which is perfectly reasonable...
>say you're attracted to asians
>FETISHIST! WE ARE NOT THE CURE FOR YOUR YELLOW FEVER!
>say you're not attracted to asians
>WHAT'S WRONG WITH ASIANS? RACIST!
guy on the left is a turbofeminist GAF mod
Man I remember hearing about that girl who auctioned her virginity off.
They made a documentary about it.
There was also an equally attractive guy who auctioned his virginity for the movie but only got a couple thousand dollars.
How is that a false equivalence?
Neogaf doesn't have any affiliation with anyone so stop acting like it's a grouping place for fanatics instead of just discerning individuals. Though I guess I wouldn't expect /v/irmin to understand what that entails.
I actually agree on a general standpoint.
I don't think Crash and Jak were "kiddy shit", but ND is a shell of its former self.
If they went back to their old IPs, it'd be horrifying
>but it's always funny to see them lose their shit whenever someone dares to speak about one of their beloved publishers/devs in an unflattering manner.
The people who don't suck off SJW niggers whenever possible get banned.
Eh nothing much. got a ps4 but was disasapointed in it. kust playing old games now like links awakening and resident evil 2
damn you really noticed ..
They suck Jason Schreier cock whenever he visits. They always have game devs and suck them off all the time. They also have rad fem idiots to piggyback their moral highhorse. There are way too many problems with that forum. Modabuse isn't even in their vocabulary because they deny it so vehemently.
Is that a Ken gif too?
Good fucking god. The most hilarious thing about the Sony fans on that sight is that they mirror their beloved company so much, stealing the Neogaf Nintendo fan's memes and driving them into the dirt.
Claiming there's a sony bias on the site is an immediate ban.
I usually like sony stuff (got a vita after all) but it's really not hard to see the fucking bias.
The easiest way is always to go on a thread about "The Order 1886". It's fucking hilarious seeing the fans trying to defend this game that looks more mediocre by the day.
I even played it at fucking gamescom, but to no avail. Despite being criticzed by almost every one, including those that played it at different event, they won't budge saying "WELL WHATEVER, I THINK IT WILL BE AWESOME, WHY DO YOU HAVE TO TROLL"
They also ban if the mod is in a bad mood. And they even say that outright. It's basically a hangout for mods with the other posters they let on for their amusement.
It really is one of the worst gaming forums, period.
fine then. i wont ask for your skype and meet you in sweden next time. rude..
why are you angry at me?calm down . yeah i do have sex 7 times a day on average on average but i give my loving to my partner
Forums are the places you're most likely looking for.
But in my opinion they're just massive circle jerk full of blind fanboys.
See: IGN and NeoGAF
You can still discuss your favorite game without getting shit on though.
Even worse is how hypocritcal the members are, they laugh their asses off when juniors get banned for the dumbest shit yet they always make excuses for Evilore.
>so what if he prints out pictures of the girlfriend of someone he doesn't like and jerks off on them and posts them online, that was 2 years ago, he's a completely different person now.
It's better in the sense that it seems there isn't as much blatant shitposting as /v/ and some mods there have some industry connections, but the people there seem to be even more smug and passive aggressive. There's some self righteousness too and the layout of the site just isn't as appealing to me as an actual imageboard. I would like it if people there spent less time posting and more time playing actual video games, but that's also a problem here, so whatever.
I think it still carries the stink of shitposting.
I don't mind criticism, and I've seen generals on /vg/ that aren't circlejerks.
Its just /v/ is the opposite of a circlejerk. Its just shitposting.
I lurk rpgcodex because they're not a bunch of left-wing politically correct niggers. You can even call the moderator a faggot nigger jew homosexual and they don't care. Never posted there though, because I have nothing to contribute.
GOG's general discussion forum also allows free speech.
I had a good screencap of when Sony announced exclusive content for Destiny and when MS announced time exclusive content for CoD
GAF was literally thanking Sony and saying they love their fans in the Destiny thread
In the CoD thread, moneyhatting accusations everywhere
pissed that I can't find it. anyone else have it?
>pls gimme atenshun!
This is the primary reason why I don't go to forums; there's always going to be that one asshole who needs to be validated by everyone else. This is why I browse 4chan
>Its just /v/ is the opposite of a circlejerk. Its just shitposting.
It's probably because of the insane amount of traffic, but then again /vg/ is the 3rd most active board and has video game discussions; /vr/ too has some great threads from time to time.
/v/ feels like a different flavor of /b/ sometimes. It's just so full of console war shitposting.
people dont hold back here though and shit posters get called out
this is what happens on GAF every fucking minute in some thread
>PS logo as avatar
>"PS fan" as tag
>"my only favorites are infamous, tlou, and uncharted. Halo is SOO bad. Why would you buy an xBONE for it? lol"
now if you call him a fanboy, you bet your ass you'll get banned, no matter how obvious it is
The mods are very loose with PS fanboys while Xbox fanboys are banned in a hot second. Im a PC fag and that still gets on my nerves. The mods have an agenda and it annoys me that its working
I more mean in the sense of information. Someone there got in trouble for being too obvious in teasing Lightning Returns.
That's what NeoGAF is good for really. Finding information on new shit early.
I don't understand why you do this. If you're gonna beg for attention, just give people your email so they can get whatever they want from you, don't start posting some shitty photos around
>people dont hold back here though and shit posters get called out
this is why I prefer /v/
You can secretly shit post on GAF and the person calling them out will get banned first
he still has a nice ass though. no homo
>people actually think that socialism is a good style of governance
>people actually think that communism would usher in a utopian society
All it does is make people equally poor.
>tfw have GAF account
>even with member status and tag
>still prefer to post here
I used to like it there but fuck I hate all the Sony fanboys and obvious shilling. Then everybody just hops on mods dicks at every second along with this whole highschool tier treatment of junior members and regular members
>hur hurr shut it junior
I still post the communities and the smash bros threads but that's it
I don't even know why I like /v/ better when its just as shitty sometimes
>cultural marxism isn't marxism
>please believe me
>and a 16 page "Truly, Ellie, we are the Last of Us" thread
It's hilarious how much shit they take from /v/, and then try and pass off as how clever they are for thinking it up themselves. And then when other forums/blogs start talking about it, they claim they did it first.
But what does /v/ have to do with a tee vee meme?
Neogaf's attempts at humor is just awful and sterile, they try so hard to be politically correct that the only type of humor allowed are Tumblr gifs, jerking off mods and talking about how "awesome" Sony is
It castrates every form of thinking.
What is a /v/ alternative that isn't an imageboard?
fuck you faggots you are just mad that you are not the shaping the industry like we are
>Posting in an SJW thread
>Decide to deviate from the established opinion
>Self righteous cunts respond with "wow...", "Dude you're a fucking asshole"
I have nothing against GAF members going on /v/ but I just can't tell how you guys can deal with those elitist faggots.
It's not really their fault. The tranny loving mods could find ANYTHING offensive on that particular day and nuke your account.
Like that guy who posted he bought weeb loli games for the girls and got banned
yep. GAF being the sonyshill it is today isn't be coincidence
the mods find reasons to ban xbox fans. the PS fanboy comments that are overlooked are absurd
I dont even own a console and I notice this. The GAF mods have been trying to turn their site into this liberal PS loving haven and its working beautifully
Why are TRANS people so loved while "white cis-men" are hated on?
>Hating trans people is like saying I that you hate asians
>Hating "white cis-men" is ok since they are the scum of the earth.
People are stupid.
That thread was comedy gold. The average Neofag has such a bloated ego, they think they're running the industry because Sony blatantly exploits them with cheap shoutouts at their conferences. They thought that they fucking ran E3 while the only industry members Evilore is friends with are Michael Pachter and Denis fucking Dyack.
Oh no, who's going to photoshop Kaz's face onto movie clips now? ;(
Why are these faggots so mad anyways? It's not like they're the ones going even if Neofag was invited, and it wouldn't even make a difference since it's just a forum, they don't write articles or make videos.
their ego and self-righteousness was already large, but it grew to catastrophic levels when Famousmortimer staged the #PS4NoDRM thing. the forum literally believes they're singlehandedly responsible for saving this generation of gaming.
...but he doesn't fucking do anything?
he doesnt write articles, make videos, or anything like that
why would he be invited?
why would neogaf be mad that their moderators dont get a free vacation?
christ I hate gaf
Because they're constantly trying to prove how relevant and important they are to the industry, and when they get slighted they go berserk and act like they deserve to be at a private event. So many posts in that thread were like "fuck E3 it's not relevant anymore anyways".
Didn't he pass on the invitation by Major Nelson, but accepted, without telling anyone else, the invitation by a Sony employee? Then when the pictures came out he got called out?
Yeah. I really can't fault Sony's strategy with the site; all you need to do is spend literally one second namedropping the site at a few conferences, and you get a guaranteed legion of shills and fanboys on your side. They also got incredibly assravaged when they found out /v/ sent cards to Iwata and the Treehouse and they didn't.
They also like to get mad about all the 'sick harassment Treehouse women get' but ignore the fact that they had to shut down the first E3 Treehouse thread because it devolved into homos borderline-doxxing Eric because they wanted to fuck him badly.
Kind of feel bad for Major Nelson, even if he's a shill the guy's like 40-50 and he's basically paid to be forced to hang out with a bunch of Neofags complaining about trans-inclusiveness or whatever in video games.
They did the same thing in the thread about Sony wouldn't fund Sunset Overdrive if Sony didn't own the IP, which is why they went to Microsoft
that thread was too short. That's big news
