Not really sure why everyone keeps insisting that Giantbomb is full of kids. This site has one of the older user bases I've seen on a game site.

@im_so_good_so_good: a few rude members don't make their boards bad;though I would have thought they would be nicer.

@im_so_good_so_good:  "u just jello"
 
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure a tasty treat is not an synonym for jealousy. At least I'm assuming that's what he meant by it.
 
I'm going to be honest here and say that this is the first time I have heard of NeoGAF. I ususally don't roam that many forums and I only found Giant Bomb by pure luck. So what exactly is NeoGAF about? Video games?

@adoggz: Something Awful is awesome, I paid back my right to look at posts about six times now.  I still can't post though, but I can look at them again!  :D 
 
But seriously, SA Forums are great, they got their own Hitman Squad for games...and are seen as the best trolls in gaming.

Big no-no.  How else will SA make their money?  Goon Squad needs their funding.

They can say whatever they want. I doubt those users speak for GAF as a whole. I continue to enjoy this site, GAF, and SA's forums. Yay. Everyone get along.

#72 Posted by Puffy_Scraggler (4 posts) -

Neogaf is awesome. 
Best game forums by far if you can get registered. 
 
Non free email accounts helps keep the banned from returning.

#73 Posted by hamchan (50 posts) -

Yes, we hate you guys so much we decided to join the community to tell you guys we hate you. Wait...does this mean I hate myself now?

#74 Posted by roofy (1005 posts) -

and this thread is why i spend the majority of my time on GAF

#75 Posted by GEP (38 posts) -

I like gaf but they really have a fucked up mod policy, random posts in huge threads that name a condition for bans, going through and posting peoples personal info and heck I remember in the 1up podcasts everybody said they've been banned from there at least once. I dont know why I decided to throw that tidbit in since I dont post much on gaf or giantbomb =/ I do stop by and check all the content daily love the whole giantbomb crew!  If i had to answer the op, id say its a pretty loyal elitist community so they'll stick with what they love,

I can't decide if this is the best video ever or the worst video ever.
#78 Posted by hamchan (50 posts) -

Ok I'll say I dislike a lot of the comments under the quick looks, so much stupid there. Then again there's a whole bunch of stupid everywhere, on NeoGAF quite a lot too. So I don't hate or dislike the giant bomb community because you're just as stupid as the GAF community. Some nice guys in both communities too.

#79 Posted by iAmJohn (6109 posts) -

He's lying.  This is the official GAF stance on Giant Bomb.  Please take notes: 
  

#80 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11477 posts) -

Alright. Sure. Whatever. Do I care about the blatant generalizations people make about these forums? Not really.

#81 Posted by animathias (1170 posts) -

Random hate on the Internet? I don't care what forum you browse, it can be in the best community ever assembled and you're still going to get a number of immature idiots. I've seen vulgar filth spill from this community at 200 mph in the chat rooms for the early Live shows, and I've seen hateful comments with absolutely no base in just about every piece of free content these guys post for us on a daily basis. Poor old Brad Nicholson gets raped over the fire every single time he posts a news article even though there's absolutely no reason for it, and people were calling for Kesslar to be burned at the stake for his Quick Looks (which were free content.)

That sounds mean, but sadly we have to bend over and accept it as truth. I stick with Giant Bomb at the moment for their content, and the portion of the community who aren't complete idiots seem to be some really cool people. I bet NeoGaf is the same way, with its share of terrible, terrible people sprinkled with some cool duders.

Maybe someday we can all learn to be civilized human beings to each other, and perhaps one day the world will split open and a geyser of delicious chocolate chip cookies will rain down on all of humanity for us all to enjoy. I'm looking forward to those cookies.

So how about that Fireplace quick look? 
EDIT- Oh wow this is the first time I've actually done anything other than watch videos and do a few quests here.

#83 Posted by AceBlack19 (111 posts) -
@fallaciousPsychologist:  Same here, never heard of 'em. I had no idea NeoGAF even existed until right now. Judging from the screen cap though, I'm not sure its the communities fault so much as it is a few users who needed to do some, "othering." In fact I followed the link to the GB threads on the site left earlier and it looked like most of them were having a perfectly rational conversation about quick looks back in 2009.
 
'Course that was back in 2009, and my work ethic kicked in before I started trolling the forums forward in time. Also I don't really care enough to go back and look. That came out meaner then it was supposed to... and trolling was bad word choice there. But you get the idea I'm goin' for here. As the Jackson 5 would say, "One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch" (Girl!).

I believe the term you're looking for is 'raked over the coals.' But I must say 'raped over the fire' has a nice ring to it, too.

I gave them five dollars once, and then it kind of kept happening. All I know is I get awesome videos every friday, and five bucks a month is easier for me than 50 upfront.
#88 Posted by Malakhii (1443 posts) -

 I have a dream that my four imaginary children will one day surf on an internet where they will not be judged by the forum of their choosing but by the content of their posting.      
 
Let freedom ring from the quick look filled halls of Giantbomb! 
 
Let freedom ring from the forums of Neogaf!

The amount of times I've seen the equivalent of "Giant Bomb is so much better than every other forum/community. if you're not part of GB, you're a jerk" posted, without any apparent sense of self-awareness or irony, leads me to believe that it's not the most difficult place to dislike if you were visiting from somewhere else. Just sayin'.

#91 Posted by jakob187 (21642 posts) -

'CAUSE THEY JELLY, DATS WHY!!! 

 
Sorry, I had to bust out with my "14-year-old jerking off to shoops of Jeff, Ryan, Brad, and Vinny voice". 
 
They also forgot to mention Snide in those shoops...and that's fucking sad.

@HDCase Oh wow, you're right. I don't know where I came up with "Raped over the fire." but it does sound unpleasant and rolls off the tounge.. In a terrifying, 'burning-sensation-down-there' kind of way.

Great. Now we're going to have to have a dance-off with Neogaf. 
 
Who are the 5 best dancers on GB again??

Oh dear God, it's like this thread was specifically engineered to produce hate comments. On the whole I like the Giant Bomb community, and I don't think I know enough about the NeoGAF community to have a proper opinion on them. Throwing insults and unfounded criticism, no matter who does it, and no matter who it's directed at is just immature and is only going to lead to bad things.
