yea this board is really bad which is why i do all my serious hardware talk on other sites. This board and the vita board are the reason when you mention gamefaqs message boards on other sites you get laughed at.

This place is [now] 75% trolls convincing one another that the Wii U is bad/going to fail/failing/not next gen/etc.. It's good for a laugh, but yeah, serious conversation is best reserved for other places. If you already own a Wii U, the Miiverse is a reasonable forum for smaller discussions or opinions.

These guys speak strictly about the topic on hand and tend to be quite nice, at least since I was last there.
Thanks, it doesn't seem as active as this place, but that's probably for the better. I'll definitely be using that as a breath of fresh air at the very least.
You just have to visit a pro-nintendo site. I have always enjoyed nintendolife.com, which is a UK site. You can get some good discussion over at neogaf, where trolling generally gets moderated and repeat offenders get banned from posting.
