To be honest, I think your expectations of GameFAQs being a mature and respectful gaming board are too high. Maybe I'm too used to other boards, but these forums are definitely less mature than most, and have been for a long while.

That said, there are a substantially greater amount of rapscallions and hooligans around now. A bit annoying, to be sure.

Sounds like you never been on 4Chan or Reddit.
Compared to those, most of us look like 'old timers' then again over there -- much like any forum -- there are groups of respectable intellects (although Reddit isn't a "Forum" 4Chan has a forum rather -- same concept applies to the immaturity level).

People choose to be whatever they want on the internets, some choose to be a tough guy, some choose to be idiots, trolls even. Meanwhile some choose to be intellects and others choose to be respectful or themselves (be it may a genuinely respectable person or a ******bag in person).

Thus is the internets. Welcome to the Internet.

Eh. I won't deny 4chan is pretty bad, but Reddit at least is quite nice depending on the subreddits you visit. I suppose it's a matter of perspective. The sites I tend to frequent (Smogon, Teamliquid, 2+2, and the like) are much more tolerable to me... and I guess I'm too used to them to have anything nice to say about this site. I enjoy the content that this site offers, but I still stand by my (opinionated) assertion that GameFAQs is hardly the pinnacle of maturity, and to wish that it was is really nothing more than fantasy.

I just started playing BL2. Looks like I'm late to the party. What was this board like back then?


A lot better than it is now. People would trade for more than Slag Rubis. If you needed help you'd get it. You wanted a modded gun, there was someone nice enough to give you one. I stopped playing about a week after Captain Scarletts DLC. (Nothing left to do. :/ ) I come back after Hamerlocks and everything was okay. And now it's poop.

It sucks.

@NightmareNignt

Some people on here don't suck quite as much. I still help anyone that asks and am happy to do it. But your right, at one time there were a lot more helpful people on here and not as many dicks.
