man i gotta go to bed, making no since up in here
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?
But seriously, SA Forums are great, they got their own Hitman Squad for games...and are seen as the best trolls in gaming.
" @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. "can't you just make another account? that seems weird to me
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,
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.
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.
'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!).
"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"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 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!
My gold account with like 16.9 posts will blow you away.
" @Lijik said:" 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. "You are a silver member with only one post. Don't know why I find that astounding "
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'.
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.

I'm pretty sure I hate the Giant Bomb forum community too...
Naaaaaaaahhhh.... That's not true. Mostly.

I'm pretty sure the word your looking for is raked.
