4chan still exists?

#3 Posted by joshthebear (2700 posts) -

And we should care because?

#4 Posted by Soapy86 (2619 posts) -

Because they were surprisingly good last year.

#5 Posted by Flacracker (1582 posts) -

This is surprisingly well produced.

#6 Posted by BestUsernameEver (4825 posts) -

Haha, 4chan...

#7 Posted by Flacracker (1582 posts) -

I'm so glad they called out Anita Scamesian.

4chan's popularity has only ever been increasing.

I'm so glad they called out Anita Scamesian.

Same here!

And apparent thats the part 4chan hated the most

#14 Posted by Chibithor (574 posts) -

You know, I was expecting something pretty terrible but I ended up liking the list. A couple of weird choices really stand out but I guess that's 4chan for you. Nice to see Dustforce get some mentions though.

I like how they call their best trailer award the "Hyperbole Award" and proceed to get mad hyperbolic about the quality of games like Mass Effect, Diablo 3 and CoD. Also those skits were turrible.

It's just a few dudes, not there entire consensus opinion. I wouldn't take it too seriously.

#18 Posted by LackingSaint (1764 posts) -

Gotta say, overall I think I preferred last year. I appreciate how honest they were about the failings of the last /v/GAs, but again it seems like a matter of "if your show is obviously really flawed, you shouldn't bitch about how flawed all the other shows are".

#19 Edited by TheHT (10810 posts) -

These are alright. Genuinely funny moments.

#20 Posted by EuanDewar (4693 posts) -

nah fuck that

#21 Posted by chrissedoff (2075 posts) -

Blech, 4chan.

#22 Edited by Nux (2294 posts) -

So?

#23 Posted by jerseyscum (861 posts) -

I'll check them out. Then disinfect myself after.

#24 Edited by Mrsignerman44 (1100 posts) -

That was surprisingly well produced. Definitely cringe-worthy at times (They still haven't gotten over Mass Effect 3 or DmC it seems...) but genuinely funny as well.

A modest effort from /v/ despite the fact that they won't acknowledge that 2012 was a fantastic year for vidya in general.

#25 Posted by MeganeAgain (123 posts) -

To the Twitch archives I go! I very much enjoyed last year's show.

They don't host child porn. In fact 4Chan has been responsible for catching many pedophiles red handed looking for said material and turning their information over to authorities.

#28 Edited by jerseyscum (861 posts) -

They clearly put some work into this. I gotta give credit where credit's due.

I'm also happy /v/ liked Hotline Miami as much as I did. And I'm always down for some Tropes VS Women bashing.

Where did you get the idea that 4chan hosts child porn? It's against the rules there like it is everywhere else - it's just that it appears over there occasionally because of the fact that there are 10s of millions of people posting on the site every month.

Why even bother, he doesn't even understand what "host" mean in relation to the internet.

Someone could just as easily upload an illegal picture to any website, including Giantbomb. It's harder to catch on 4chan because of the sheer volume of people.

I understand some people don't like 4chan, and I don't think it's the best place in the world. But Jeff once said he saw value in it because when you just want the raw fucking essence of the internet regarding any big news matter or video game issue, it's there. And sometimes, that's what I want to see.

So you're going to be "that guy"?

@jace: Yeah, I dunno people have really dumb impressions of shit like reddit and 4chan. I don't use em' well... okay /r/gonewild is an okay subreddit but like c'mon who doesn't visit that one.... but its cool that shit like that exists.

This should be fun

#38 Posted by ThunderSlash (1514 posts) -

I enjoyed whatever they had put up last year. Question though: They poll the users of their message board right? It's not just a small group of people that decide the awards.

#39 Edited by audioBusting (1465 posts) -

@thunderslash: If you check out their detailed results page, you'll see that they've actually put a surprising amount of effort into their polling. =O

edit: Also the strangest part of the results is Reddit also voting for Reddit Influence for the worst part of the 2011 /v/GAs. I don't know what actually happened last year but that's kinda funny.

#41 Posted by Ravenlight (8040 posts) -

Surprising production values, dumb fun, calling out bullshit: even if I wasn't 100% onboard with every one of their picks, I enjoyed watching.

That's unfortunate.

Yep.

What's wrong with 4chan? GB and 4chan occupy a good portion of my internet time.

They think that 4chan = /b/

/b/ leaks into the other boards enough that I stay away from the whole thing.

/b/ and /v/ leak in the internet as a whole. There is no escape. There's quite a few /v/diots that post on Giant Bomb. They usually smell funny and typically have drool marks on their keyboards.

Is there some kind of stereotypical /v/ user that I don't know about? I mean I frequent the board all the time and I don't smell funny or drool at all.

Not on youtube yet...that's ok. I'll wait.

#46 Posted by KaosAngel (13765 posts) -

And we should care because?

Considering that /v/ is most of the time the first to post leaks, have been right about a lot of stuff, predicted the DMC fiasco, TORantic, and other big stuff that other sites said wouldn't happen...yeah, /v/ is still important. Only gets bigger by the day. New threads every second or so now.

#49 Edited by Tobiass (150 posts) -

At this point, this isn't 4chan. It's the REDDIT awards. 4chan is no longer what it used to be. It's filled with ''le epic maymays'' and other trash.
