Can't agree with this enough. There are times during the week when half of Gaming's first page is made up of culture wars stuff, with people decrying some "woke" piece of news/anime censorship/etc, calling X/Y/Z "cucks", etc.

I personally find a lot of that to be reactionary garbage - for example: why the obsession with LGBTQ, especially trans folks - but I come here enough to understand that it's not representative of the site as a whole. A more casual observer might come to the wrong conclusion, as @Weavile wrote above.

I'm not a ResetEra user, never really considered jumping ship as I'm not here for the politics, but I do sometimes wish the Gaming section of the site was more... on-topic.
I'm pulling this out of my ass but I'm willing to bet a lot of people come here to talk about what they can't somewhere else.

And I agree that the "gaming" forum sometimes feels too focused on scandals.

People here love games and when they see actions by a small group repeatedly try to ruin that, to force it to be something it isn't, they get understandably upset. Either that or they laugh at the absurdity of it (like with the Borderlands 3 Fl4K situation). For every "scandal" thread on the front page, there are seven times as many normal gaming threads. 40 threads (not counting stickies), 4 of which are based (loosely or otherwise) on scandals.

I see this claim constantly by a handful of people, all of which make it out to be larger than it really is or ever has been. There is an ignore threads option for a reason (not to mention you can just not click on the thread thanks to free will).

Icemonk191 with the classic Ree ban baiting post there, there's so many Reetards that are as bigger cunts as the mods. Watch out for those "just asking what you really meant" questions.
Jooxed is done for now anyway since he posts here with the same name. The paranoid fucks will find a reason to discreetly ban him.

Some of you are putting a invisible glass ceiling on Gaf limiting how far this site will grow user wise.

Two to three weeks ago I went into a random Pokémon or Astral Chain (Pre launch) thread and the first comment was either a gender identity joke or some women’s right over reaction joke that was clearly a shot at Era made by a user who frequents this thread. I’ve seen similar shots in other threads.

I don’t care about the joke or the fact that the user made that joke because in context I knew the user was taking a shot at Era and it got a slight smile and dumbass remark out of me.

Not everyone who visits this site knows about Era and all the shit the happened a couple years ago. If some fresh blood is lurking the site looking for a new community to join and be part of and if they click on a gaming related thread and the first comment they see is a gender identity joke or some women’s right joke... Out of context that person is going to label this site Transphobic or Sexist.

Bringing Era up and taking shots at Era in unrelated threads is no better then what Era does in every single gaming Era thread they have and it actively undermines what Evilore and his team is doing by making this site more and more user friendly.

Other opinion

I see comments in here saying that Era is dying or is at the very least circling the drain.

I disagree..

That site has legitimacy.. like it or not it has industry support. Devs post there, leakers post there, and gaming “journalist” post there. They give that site credibility and in turn they attract more and more new users.

The site is bleeding old time users lets leak something and have our “journalists” friends cover it which creates more exposure for the site that will bring in new users. What? God of War is a game of the gen contender? Well it’s director posts here from time to time.. the appeal of talking to devs directly is appealing enough for new users to join up.

Resetera was built on more then just NeoGaf old user base. It also took a system of credibility and legitimacy that Evilore and his “old” team took years to create and foster before the community turned on him.

I personally think it’s fucked that other people are profiting of off what Evilore created. What can you do? 🤷🏽‍♂️ The only way Era would go down is if a actual scandal would hit their MOD team or the owner which I don’t think will happen or it’s sold off to a corporate company looking to expose the user base for a profit which I think would actually make that community more bearable since the corporate ownership would tighten down with stricter rules.

Only second post here and they both been in this thread. Patiently waiting for the new Pokémon games to release.
I would argue that people who would fret over sexist/transphobic jokes are people we don’t need here anyway. Court the fragile types at your peril.

That isn't really relevant though, while not as bad, it is bad:
NeoGAF is cancer and NeoGAF is full of SJW are clearly related to the public image of GAF thanks to our dearly departed ideologues. The rest are just curiosity about the status of the site or game names. It’s really quite different to the Ree screenshot.

You could use your argument about GAF as well, but from shunned users to right wingers.

The self importance in this thread is hilarious - the socialist, harmonious, brother hugging society mad that someone asked for a favour to photoshop an image for his buddies. Not only do they not just ignore the thread, they have to rage in and espouse true capitalist money driven insults (even though OP said they wouyld pay!). The (CCCP) party never stops!

No where did I say let’s roll out the red carpet for any group to openly join this site.

What I am saying is that there’s a group of people who doesn’t want to deal with the far left SJW bullshit that goes on in Era and that also doesn’t want to see or deal with users going into random gaming threads making dumb jokes meant to be shots at the bullshit on Era.

All that shit shows that while the ideology of Gaf is different from Era it’s still the same bullshit going on here.

About me...

I found out about Gaf the night of Sony revealing 8GB GDDR6 Rams during the February reveal reaction thread through GameFaqs. I joined later that year. I followed the Pokémon community over to Era when the split happened.

About a month ago I requested my account be erased at Era and asked EviLore EviLore ti help set up this account. Thanks for that help by the way! I got mentally drained from the nonstop “this person is a threat to my existence even though they’re not” bullshit. Every fucking gaming thread.

I had so many people on my ignore list that I was missing out on gaming OT’s on games I wanted to talk about because the OP was on my ignore list.

Those dumbass ass jokes in a unrelated gaming thread just so one of you can show Era is no different. I don’t give a fuck how you feel about Era and just as you’re not really a threat to whatever existence Era is feeling this week they aren’t such a threat that members here needs to go into unrelated threads to take a pop shot at them.

Sure is a lot of REEEfugees lately telling us how to converse.

No.
yeah, did someone set off a homing beacon this week so they could find this topic in a nested folder specifically to make all their first posts in? Who the fuck are those users who don't even post in this topic giving them the likes?

To be honest I said it couple of months ago. I said we need to drop the Era obsession and just concentrate on our family here. Nobody took it seriously which is totally understandable because the amount of clowns you see their posts here from over there is an absolute free circus. Who doesn’t want a free circus?

I kind of see that now.

I just want to put out there that I really don’t care about the shots at Era when it’s in the appropriate thread where it makes sense. You all want to make jokes on them? Ok... just be funny about it.. I like to have a good chuckle. Just don’t bring your need into unrelated threads.


If the fact that I was part of Gaf before the split and left with the split only to come back now some how.. I don’t know, you feel discredit my opinion on the matter.. get over it, that’s your problem.

I’m really not trying to be rude but new users are joining this site and like I said in one of my posts they may not know anything about Era or the split only to go into a random gaming thread to see some dumbass pop shot at Era out of context. It makes the community as a whole look bad.

I’m not against you, I’m 100% with it. Also on GAF discord I mentioned the shitposting in unrelated threads. Derailing a thread can be fun at times but not most of the time

I also don’t like reporting users here because it doesn’t feel right to me. Whoever is full of shit and a retard I just put on ignore because no value is lost

I need to get in on the Discord myself and see how everyone interacts there.

Most of that post wasn’t directed at you. Lol.. I’m not the best with putting my thoughts into text or written form so apologies for that.

But yeah, I’m thinking since I already put my opinion out there I’ll let off for now. I’m not trying to earn some dumb reputation or come of as over stepping my membership by trying to sound like a mod.

I’m hoping I won’t have to use the ignore list here honestly but it’s a bridge I’ll cross once the games I’m waiting for starts releasing and there’s idiots acting a fool.

Just want to know...are you the same guy with a Weavile avatar from Resetera?

Only "neogaf is cancer" and "neogaf is full of sjw" are value judgments, and both of those are presumably leftovers from before the split with Reset.
Was thinking that, but that was, what, two years ago? Shouldn't the algorithm update now one would think.

I’m not against you, I’m 100% with it.

First you agree to stop pointing out ResetEra’s stupidity and craziness because “it’s beneath us”.

Then you agree to stop making fat jokes because “it’s offensive.”

Then you stop admitting to being attracted to hot people because that’s “sexist”.

Then as you keep changing yourself to appease these strangers, more of them show up because you have emboldened them and given them power. They see you as weak now. They smell blood. They move in for the kill.

Then you wake up one day and realise your want to appear nice and normal to the rest of the internet has allowed this place to be infested with authoritarian hive-minded NPCs again.

Congratulations, you played yourself.

Be careful, brother and thank God we have Evilore. I know he won’t let that happen again.



TL/DR: Appeasement doesn’t work.

Look at the tough guys in the Shane Gillis thread, lol.

They’re so worried he’s going to end up on Joe Rogan, a guy they supposedly don’t listen to.

I’m sure that’s true. I just feel like reminding this place that agreeing to self-censorship leads us down a dark and twisted path. It’s never enough. You give an inch, they want a mile. It doesn’t work.

We don’t want that. We’re in a good place and very grateful for it

The point is too much of anything is not good. That’s it
