It's not unfair to make parallels here at all, rage3d is the most obvious since it's also a graphics card forum. However, you can go anywhere you want, most people are so diehard to their own console that you'll see constant flamewars with any console discussion, whether it's rage3d, a console forum or usenet, it makes little difference. Putting it alongside a PC graphics card forum makes it even worse, as you'll get the PC diehards coming in and slating the console games.

Ok, so you're wondering why I don't want to draw parallels?

Stay here for A WHILE and you'll see the difference in "discussion progression" betwen here and other places. Excuse me, but nvnews is totally unique IMO... it's not just "the mods run a tight ship", but it's more like "this community holds itself together well"... I've been around PLENTY of console discussions around here... and, um, they don't go to crap. They benifit people.

that wasn't a rant, just my take... I do see where you're coming from, Johnmcl7 & B&R... I just feel that this community is in fact very unique... I wouldn't say it if I haven't been elsewhere...
