It's kinda insane to wait and see what comes of all this. Neogaf seemed so central not only to my hobbies, but to my work.
I posted on these forums for a long time, and never stopped consuming GB content but eventually moved out to Neogaf for forum news (never bothered making an account) when Giant Bomb got too big and couldn't handle all the spam on these forums anymore. (I'm not even sure that's an issue that got fixed).
I've started working in the industry in data and analyst roles since then, and neogaf was surprisingly widespread with developers and publishers I've worked with. Idk why that was so surprising, I guess I always just thought they wouldn't care or would have better sources for this kind of stuff. So many people used it to gauge hardcore reactions to their games, or just as an easy way to follow competitor/market news. I don't know what takes over now, where everyone goes.
Personally, I'll miss the art book thread.
