Well, Sonic is the peak of autism, so I wouldn't be surprised.Bro is it just me or is Sonic Hedgehog the most popular topic on /v/? Every time I browse there is at least 1 new Sonic thread. I'm not criticizing, because I do like Sonic. I just wanted to know if you noticed this
Ironically between 2013 and 2018 it wasn't the case. As people would be banned for sneezing or not agreeing with the gaf hive mind, or the forced politics in every other thread, leaning one way.Agreed!
People are overly sensitive on the other sites.
Especially for matters that have absolutely nothing to do with gaming.
GAF will always be numero uno to me.
Shit on reddit, they look at the other subs you belong to and if you belong to a sub that they hate its instant ban... Seen it happen after I played Devils advocate on a topic and broke the hive mind. Rather then discuss I got ultra downvoted and called names. Then got "you post on x sub, your oppion is invalid", followed by a bunch of more name calling and later a ban message.It's too easy to get baited on Reddit, you take the "wrong side" on some thread that involves politics on an unrelated sub and it's guaranteed some moderator is going to ban you.
You could make a thread ?
Like chromhound said... You can create your own threads for things you want to talk about. "Be the change you want to see," and all thatI mostly like A or AA games, but most discussions is either about AAA games, sales, or console wars. It's not the site itself that is bad, but there aren't many members who discuss the things that I like.
I'd argue this is actually a good thing. GAF at its peak (around 2015-2016) just moved too damn fast; it was hard (almost overwhelming) to keep up with the conversation. Reasonable posts got quickly buried under one-sentence hot takes from people that were trying to hard to have a forum "personality."After the split, I feel like there isn't enough traffick.
I totally agree. After experiencing a lot of other forums in the past, I really enjoy here.I've been here more than a year and after going through a lot of gaming forums like Gamefaqs, Reddit, Reset era, gamespot forums I have to say NeoGaf is frankly the best, I love the format and the kind of gamers that commute around here, people feel truly genuine and passionate about gaming.
For example I don't like Reddit too much because while some gaming subs are good the site encourages a hive mind kind of thinking. That doesn't apply here because GAF lacks the upvote-downvote system and everyone expresses their opinions freely.
In conclusion I am happy to be a member here.
