Since when we cannot post negative opinions in threads?

mod edit: there are plenty of negative and questioning posts regarding quality and assets in the thread which are genuine. There are also lots of drivebys and hot takes crafted only to provoke and antagonise others. If you want to get into exchanges that belong on twitter, take them there. The creators of those posts will be given a courtesy warning, reply ban or temporary site ban. Let's not forget other posts which deserved warnings like this as well. You have had chances, and we have had a sticky in the boards for months now. Increase the quality of your posts or their intent will be subject to review.






I couldn’t find a way to reply to whatever mod banned me from the Hellblade 2 thread so I am posting here.

I wrote that I think that it’s a downgrade and that the graphics are not great since Horizon 2 looks better while being cross gen.

Nothing else.

if you get offended by a simple opinion like this it’s your problem not mine.

I don’t care about console wars and Horizon 2 is not a game I am looking forward to play.

If we are back to this childish moderation, will neogaf have any chance to go back to what it was 10 years ago? EviLore EviLore


Get better mods, last time it cost you most of the userbase.
Ban people that get offended on nothing not people that posts opinions regardless of unpopular they are.

99% of the console war flames come from people that get offended because someone said something not great about their favourite console, this is the type of user you don’t want in your commmunity and the more they are the more console war flame you are going to have.
if the situation is getting worse is because the moderation is failing.
my 2 cents.

Place has slowly become an echo chamber.

Don't really blame the mods. They are banning very swiftly.

This thread is a perfect example of that. .... (52) Hellblade II: Senua's Saga - New Trailer | The Game Awards 2021 | NeoGAF
A echo chamber of what?

the only thing I have noticed is the amount of stupid opinions is very high, 10 years ago would have been a small minority and laughed at then corrected.
but I do ‘t get offended by them and I don’t want these people banned Because they said something stupid.

we went from an environment fostering growth for its user base to a decaying one where people devolve into fanboys and the smart knowledgeable people leave this mess Since they have better things to do.

While I think it’s a bit of a downgrade from the original showing, what was shown at TGA still looked incredible.

I was more impressed with Senua 2, than I was with Horizon Forbidden West even though the latter looks great as well. I own both the PS5 and XSX fwiw.

An echo chamber of confirmation bias.

People aren't trying to have discussions, they just want others to confirm what they believe.

It is what it is. Stupid opinions are the norm here now.

Because any opinion should be substantiated, if it would be up to me, even a positive discourse should have been scrutinized more. Because what does it brings into table go into thread and wrote

"Damn boi, X company is on another level"

Seems like an apples vs avacado’s comparison. Both have different graphic styles that bring different advantages, so it all depends on what you fixate on to say which is better. Saying that, I agree we should have room for debate on forums as long as it’s not outright trolling, which mods can generally acertain based on user post history.

"The cross-gen game I saw running on current gen hardware looks better!"

Your point wasn't a point at all, it was bait. Not to mention it was highly questionable anyway, I dunno if you watched it in 360p or something but that footage was bonkers, it just has a muted colour palette.

You came into a Hellblade 2 thread simply to bait & say Horizon looked better, it was "downgraded" & that you didn't like the first one.

You knew exactly what you were doing. Not surprised a mod removed you from the thread, did he suggest some glasses as well?

Better luck next time.
This exactly, then you make a thread to complain about why you got banned for fanboying. It's not about the negative opinion, it's about derailing the thread to try and praise PS in an Xbox thread.
 
You're not exactly wrong on that it does not look that good even tho you were clearly baiting but one game is made by a big triple A studio with huge experience while the other is an indie studio. It's stupid to compare them and you were righfully banned. Chill.

it's kinda funny because not having read thread you got kicked out of, when I see the two comments in the OP here out of their original context it looks like you're saying "this is unacceptable for Xbox and there is no hope that things will ever get better, but hey, it was cool for PlayStation. Just not for Xbox" Both comments read like total hyperbole.

You must have missed the GT7 trailer thread where that exact same thing happened. Repeatedly. The difference is, one group cries and reports posts and the other doesn’t. At least not nearly as much. So, when baby cries you hand them a rattle.

True, but maybe we should also have the common sense to realise that a first reaction post will often be short and concise, and yet still be valid.

I think I'd honestly rather drive by trolling than cry babies who cry foul/call it trolling any time someone bluntly states an opinion they don't like.

You should be able to enter, say, a Halo thread with a a simple one sentence criticism without suffering a four paragraph essay on why you're wrong and why you should be banned for trolling for example.

Did a mod not intervene in there? Pretty sure I remembered a mod post. Difference being, the "green rats" don't go crying about it & make a thread regarding their warnings or removal. It's been a pretty common occurrence lately to see some people on the "blue" side suicide their account by crying.

If it’s valid I haven’t seen anyone get warned. But there’s a difference in saying you don’t like an aspect of a game and saying “ Xbox still lame I see dur dur “

I wish there were less people who keep talking about things they don't own or care about.
