I tried to register for Neogaf once but apparently my email address's aren't good enough for them so fuck it.

Oh also this thread is silly, of course a lot of the topics will be the same when you're talking about gaming news.

It really is. Neogaf still has real debate and discussion. SW has turned into trolls trolling trolls. WTF happened to this place.

Well yes. Neogaf is a site where a lot of people that work in the industry and around the industry post. It's also a web forum that enjoys probably 200x the traffic that GS forums get. As a function of the higher membership, higher traffic, and individuals closer to the industry, stories related to gaming more often than not get posted there or at Reddit sooner than they are here. And they're usually stories worth talking about, so they get cross-posted here. Hell, sometimes stories are created AT neogaf, then they make their way to websites like IGN and Gamespot. A lot of the controversial statements made by Albert Pinella (sp?) were made when he was posting at NeoGAF claiming that the Xbox One may in fact be more powerful than the PS4. That made its rounds around the internet and major gaming new sites.

That's how SW has always been and always will be. And every other website other than Reddit. Now it's not like SW doesn't have it's own unique and random topics and discussions...but big news and big threads tend to have stories that started somewhere else.

"turned into". LOL

as if System Wars was anything more than derp and trolling. It, by nature, tends to attract the intellectually dishonest and the insecure. I only post here because of good memories from years ago. I definitely don't post here for the high-quality conversation and worthwhile debate. But you could probably tell I'm not your typical System Warrior. I'm well past that kinda silliness.

I actually find Neogaf pretty bad as well from what I've read it's just a different kind of bad. One of the biggest annoyances I see there is how fucking negative people are CONSTANTLY, I swear to God 90% of the posts in threads are either mocking the console/game in question or complaining about it.

It's been like that for a VERY long time. I noticed it too when I registered over there in February

Nah. If this place was neogaf lite everyone would be posting nothing but stupid puns/moronic gifs and whining about every little thing.

I noticed this too, and many times they don't even bother crediting NeoGaf or adding they're own two cents in the original post. Just straight up copy & paste.

I don't have a GAF account, but I go back and forth and notice a lot of "borrowed" topics and posts.

Never been to NeoGaff, but since you guys say is pretty much the same in content as SW, might as well just stay here.

Wasn't always full of trolls and fake boys. That didn't start until midway through the 360/PS3 era.
