Question Time for an HL2 forum?

Seeing as how the doom3 forum is losing less interest every day, and pretty much all of us have beat the game... not to mention there is pretty much no multiplayer to speak of.... Is it time to kill that one and move on to an HL2 dedicated forum?

With the new reviews, the final preload, it looks like HL2 might finally be going gold soon. Just an idea for a dedicated forum. Nobody kill me or anything I've just been noticing the general games forum is quickly filling up with HL2 threads

Prolly not a bad idea... Since interest in this game is only going to increase you would expect.

How do you know that there will be no more preload segments?

Once the game does come out, I'm all about creating a separate forum for HL2 as a subset of our regular games one. Plus I think moving the Doom 3 forum there would be appropriate.

Sorry, I dont agree with this

I think HL2 is loosing everyone's interest tbh with all the crummy delays it is getting, and this is easily backed up by reading recent posts made by some of the members on this board. I think you will find the majority of us are more interested in CoD : UO.

To keep everything fair and square, how about making a poll what game should have the forum ?

So far there have been only 6 cod:uo threads on the entire nvnews board, search tells me
That's including the demo.

It didn't seem to hurth Doom 3. HL 2 will be a big hit.

Yes... I think as soon as the game goes gold, we should make the forum... w00t w00t! I like the idea of dedicated forums for big games... one of the many things I love about nvnews.net!
