About average I guess. I've definitely seen worse.

Very good place. Lots of high class friendly users starting intelligent discussions.

It's pretty crappy. Better sites out there for sure. The users make the forum, so that explains a lot.

GameFAQ is much worse even before Gamepot separated from them. But this doesn't mean that System Wars is any good at all.

With the new recent changes, its gotten really bad. Old members that sparked any decent discussions on the forums. left and never looked back.

Mostly everyone has either moved to Gaf, became lurkers or simply grew out of it and moved on.

The golden days are long gone y'all.

I think I only come here out of habit. I have been lurking this board since 2004. I have since joined Giantbomb and Neogaf and much prefer those communities. All boards have trolls and sick in the head fanboys. But this place takes the cake. IGN boards are pretty bad too. But what do you expect from a site who's staff reports false information?

@PsychoLemons:

Yeah this forum is nothing like GameFAQ... Back when Red Faction was released I wrote a mini review in the game's forum and got modded for and banded for 7 days.

Safe to say, I never used Gamespot's links to game forums ever again.

This place is really tame. It's gotten really quite over the years.

Pre rules update? Yes, it was unique and people had to actually had to work around and think to troll

Post rules update? Nope, though still better than ign and gamefaqs

Impossibly worse than average. I'm just glad this place exists so most of the bad posts about games end up in one place.

There are good posters here but they're buried under the pile of fanboy shit.

better than gametrailers and IGN.

Worse than everywhere else. The users that take this place seriously however are very fun to piss off.

Since the beginning of time, this place has been very classy. I like it when they call people cows, or neck bearded hermits. Is it sheep that they call the xbox lackeys?

Its always fun to see people try to prove how a console is more powerful then a pc, i can't help but laugh at the crazy peoples logic when they get into debates about this.

I enjoy when people call me a cow yet I haven't played a Sony console since gta 5 released.

Absolutely amazing deductive skills there.

"Hermits," are pretty good at that, especially retired lemmings.
