Regardless of what the nay sayers say. I still think a Gaming Forum divided into sub divisions is a good idea. Give it a chance is all I might hope for.

since I am "hoping" that most PC hardware enthusiasts use there cards for at least some gaming

Console Gaming is of interest to me. As is typical Gaming. and I think this forum would benefit from the addition.

As in. Generally give something that'll interest them more. That is IMO within the bounds of this forum. And they'll spend more time here. Drawing in more of a community

The Nvnews community has been growing as of late. Why Not grow with it?

What is this "game" you speak of? I only know of 4... But they're followed by "tests," so that's no good! I don't want to take a test!

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...

I have been here for a while, you can browse this forum without registering, even now I don't post much. And to be honest (nothing against this site) I see nothing unique here, there still seems to be plenty of flames when there's disagreement (just look back to the NV35 launch) just as there are on pretty much every other forum. Just recently there was all that nonsense between Digitalwanderer and shipping fees or something stupid that 'went to crap', so I have to just laugh about the difference in "discussion progression"

I agree with Sat here...there was a post almost exactly like this with a bunch of people begging for a console gaming forum; the console forum had quite a few posts for a short amount of time, then just kinda died off.

I have been a moderator for Rage3d for some time now. I only recently got assigning the Console forum as well in addition to other mods because the forum was simply out of hand. In the past week I have had to close multiple threads, edit posts, and send warnings like never before. This forum is like no other forum I have ever modded, it is tough.

I'm warning the Nvnews crew, if you bring back a Console forum be prepared for flamebait and thread crapping.

example:
Topic = The new Mario game for GameCube is cool.
Reply = GameCube sux, XBOX owns

etc

Listen to the mods, we've had several forums spring up in the past from suggestions like this that still die shortly after due to inactivity. If the demand grows we may give it a try again.

Rarely seems to be 'Xbox owns' posts there, it's mainly 'Xbox sucks' x500

Makes for a really worthwhile forum
