I know what you mean, and the articles are only going to get worse the next few months with new consoles.

I think I posted in their today but regretted straight away. Everything in there is just negatives nowadays. I hate f2p, ea suck balls, Activision are the devil, and anyone who owns an apple product, FIFA, or CoD, are all sheep! :lol:

I've said this before, but if everyone was to leave then I'd go, but the small group who manage to keep the forums alive are a great bunch and I love reading some of the banter between them.

Is it because I spend more time in AC now Dodo?

Eurogamer is decent I reckon. People can be a little up themselves but it can be a really funny forum at times aswell. I don't post there often but I actually like just reading it.

Join the gametrailers forums for a bit if you want some real mouth breathers. This place is dead tame in comparison, theyve all been drinking lead paint over there.

Not at all Bambi, having you in AC makes them better, never knowing what you're gonna say next makes it fun.

@Reeg, Daedy

I know where'll I'll be going if I go, Eurogamer would probably be my #3 choice.

I love the Articles section. They help make the 8 hours in work that much more bearable, as long as you can laugh at 97% of them.

Its just games at the end of the day and some people want to invest too much of there life in what they feel is the best hardware to have, as crazy as that sounds.

Its been like that on here for years. Just like it is everywhere else.

I would love to agree with you there Stone.

Actually I do, to an extent.

Sure there's no getting away from fanboys and such on any gaming website, doesn't matter if it's IGN, CVG or some unknown blog. It's just, out of the four gaming sites I tend to read, only with CVG does the bad or meh outweigh the good, it has for a while and it doesn't look like changing anytime soon.

The best website for me, at least in terms of a mature community is Destructoid. I don't post there, but I really like reading it. It seems quite matey, so probably why I don't post there, but you don't get the back and forth you get on here, Eurogamer etc. Maybe they just mod all the bullshit away.

It's just like a massive version of when a big exclusive comes out now. Have a whine, you don't have to like everything, but it does get a bit old when it goes on and on. The best compliment I could probably pay about the community on Destructoid is that I most of the time I can't tell what platform the members really like, or rather, really hate. Even on EG you get the same old people banging on about the Wii U, Vita, PS4 etc in numerous articles.

CVG has improved somewhat in the last six months or so (although I still don't rate the reviews), but so much of it seems lowest common denominator stuff. That sounds really snobbish, but it's like reading Heat sometimes.

Surely you'll stick around in the forum section, Dodo? The Arseholes are in the article section. The forum section is quiet, no doubt, but it's full of quality posters like your good self.

I just stay out the AC comments, full stop. I know I'm supposed to be kind of responsible moderating them but tbh it's a lost cause. Especially with people like Daz who will kick up a fuss if you warn him for "doing nothing wrong".

I have already started migrating to another website, it's called Polygon. I kinda of like some of their reviews, they have constant news and the community is super friendly (admitidly too friendly, I was warned for saying butt hurt on one of my first posts and my post was removed!). Their forum layout is a mess too...The only reason I joined, apart from CVG being a Hell Hole, is because Polygon is only one of two gaming websites that actually work...at work. Edge is the other one but there is zero community, zero news and zero forums...terrible site.

As for Eurogamer, I have a lifetime ban on that site and I would NOT be welcomed. I even started getting death threats over PSN after I 'left' :shock:. The Forum members have a kinda Old Guard who don't really like new members and are absolute c**ts.

People really hated me for my 'List' phase, I was getting CONSTANT abuse. Not for one for just lying down and taking it, I gave as good as I got. But it was getting tedious telling people about themselves all the time. So one evening Eurogamer decide to implement a new forum software thingy which let's you embed pictures (you couldn't before). So I spanned all the forums for about an hour posting pics of a...homosexual nature. Explicit pics :lol:

I made too much noise over there (even before all the free porn I graciously gave them) and they didn't like it at all.

:lol: Ha Ha Slick you t**t that's awesome. I did notice there is a fella over there that even now has some kind of abuse about you in his sig.

You're all right about Eurogamer. I do like reading it cos it can be pretty funny what with there not really being any rules and such - people don't seem afraid to just properly rip the p**s which has sort of gone from here. It isn't a very friendly community though. They have never really whinged at me much.

I'll have a look at that polygon.

I actually think CVG is pretty good to be honest nowadays. I like the reviews and probably agree with them more than most other sites. I like the people who create the content and the new live streams and stuff, and also the youtube channel. The only thing I don't like, and I feel like I'm beating a dead horse here, is that when someone is acting like a c**t, I can't call them a c**t. Cos of that you get these arguments that go on and on with huge walls of one upsmanship rather than just turning round and saying 'shut up dickhead'. That's what I like about Eurogamer, you can get away with that.

The GamesTM forums are actually pretty good. They're quite quiet but if a few of us went over that'd change. MFNick used to post there.
