This is a split board - You can return to the Split List for other boards.

I remember once upon a time when this board used to be worth a damn

To be fair though, if we could stop the Gold topics this place would be a whole lot better. And, conveniently, the last few years has seen a drastic increase in nonstop whining about the cost of gold. I'm shocked! You know it's the truth too because I'm sure you feel stupider now that I brought the topic up.

How could a topic, about the board, be off topic?


Because the board isn't one of the topics up for discussion? No really, it's for Xbox 360 games, I checked.

I wouldn't say the board has gotten worse. It just seems to be the boards are now in limbo.. So boredom and frustration is setting in. Once the new consoles are confirmed the new boards should be full of life.

Personally I think the term "troll" is used far to loosely on this board.... I think it's healthy people having their own opinion, and disagreeing. People resorting to personal insults are just waking up to the reality that not everyone will agree with them.

Indeed. Being a troll means you are intentionally provoking others. Aside from that it's just people with very strong opinions battling it out.

That or flame wars because people can't stand opposing opinions that come off too strong.

Bah, they aren't too strong, it's that the ****s the opinions are directed at are far too sensitive.

Well yeah, that's basically what I meant. Overall an opinion is an opinion no matter how assertive the one who gives it is but some people can't handle people with strong assertions regardless of whether it's a popular opinion or not.

Ill never forget this board, I remember E3 06, I remember the MTV 360 launch announcement. I remember the PS3 trolls flocking to this board with the Chad Warden aka Chad Daddy videos. I remember Wii60. Good times.

It's like a full moon for the gaming world, it makes everyone act a little crazy.

XD, I like that, may I sig it? Seems appropriate for the current situation. I think that's exactly it, it's that it's coming to the end of this gen, it's not just this board, it's the whole site. Things should settle down...eventually. Gonna get worse before it gets better, though.

Still, I confess, though I'm sick of the extreme console fanboyism and less creative trolls, I'm rather enjoying it otherwise. The atmosphere is exciting, and at least the discussions are lively. ^_^
