Well then congratulations, I applaud you for formulating an opinion.

First of all thank you for proving my point, your just trying to be an asshole.

My "call for a ban" is simply because no one here really cares to think, or offer any kind of thought when they post random stories. They just "post" them without any sort of input. I'd say at a minimum, 45% of all the news posted on this site is rumor, false, or just stupid. And to me, by not posting any input, I immediately assume that you agree with it, which is why for some stories I post responses to the ridiculous topics and articles that are posted.
It’s funny because when you stay out of a topic or up until you jump into one of the topics the discussion seems to go pretty well. Much like this thread, doing well, you hop in and it goes to hell. YOU started the arguments in this thread all because YOU can’t handle all the bad Sony press. Removing you would end 90% of the bickering on this forum.

My suggestion to improve the games forum is to make it manditory for tha_con to clean the sand out of his vagina at least twice a week. Seriously though, your girlish babbling and drama is the only major downfall in the games forum. Its just sad when a thread turns into an argument when you enter the thread. I realize people have different opinions, but when someone shares one that isnt in line with yours you get all butt hurt. please just limit your ranting and raving and I think this will be a better forum.

Really? Here's threads where I was pretty civil, made no insults, and still ended up "defending" myself because people are fairly insecure when it comes to me disputing what they post, article story or opinion.

I can go on to find more and more and more, even this thread being an example. I simply presented my opinion, and was attacked because no one wants to have a forum where they can't spam out random stories to get their post count up.

So just because there aren't games available now you don't feel content with a PS3?

Yet you feel content re-buying old NES games on a $250 console? What happens when there's a summer drought for any one of these three consoles? Will you then feel less content becuase you won't have anything to play? IT's STUPID, to say the least, to say you don't feel content simply because you have to wait maybe a half a year.

That is exactly correct. You hit the nail on the head, congratulations! And how does that not make sense to you? I buy a video game system, ONE THAT COSTS $600 at that, and you think it is ridiculous that I expect standout games? Especially for that amount of money?? I'm glad you are content with a next gen DVD player and arcade games, but I bought my system for more than that, and I still have not got it yet... :rolleyes

At least when the next drought hits there will already be some big titles available, because at this point all I have is Resistance, and I'm contemplating Motorstorm but I'll probably just wait for it to price drop, because I don't think it's worth the full $59.99.

Call it stupid if you like, but if I pay $600 for a VIDEO GAME CONSOLE, mind you, I expect some games that make me say, "WOW, I don't care if this thing cost me $600, this game rocks!" I still do not have that feeling...

I also love how you make it seem the great games are going to start rolling out in July, and by that you surely mean Ninja Gaiden Sigma. I find this humorous coming from someone who always burns on what he deems, "re-hashes." You realize NGS is just Ninja Gaiden Black with a facelift and an additional playable character right? :hehe Looks like the real big hitters will start with Lair(August 7), and the Heavenly Sword(September 4), and so on and so forth...

I disagree, whether an NPD report or opinion, these news reports/stories keep everyone up to date with what is going on in the gaming world and brings life to the forum.

Why should I have to post input on a story? Sometimes I do, but sometimes I like to see if it receives any feedback first... And if you immediatly assume I agree with all the stories I post you are just plain dumb. I believe it was you who went on a rant a while back about it being stupid to make assumptions...eat your own words.

Wow, and you realize the sad thing is that these are the minority of your posts, because there are probably twice as many in which you resorted to insulting the intelligence of others because they have an opinion that differs from yours? Do you really want me to find a list of them?

Simply put, you make it sound as if you are the only "right" person here...you act "civil" and "defend" your opinion, and are "attacked" for it? :lol2 That is such a joke man. Do you realize you have built a reputation in which everone else views you as opinionated and arrogant because you immediatly flame anyone who does not agree with your biased opinion? This is no one else's fault, only yours. If you spent more time actualling DEBATING with others instead of attacking them and talking down to them in a condescending manner, I guarantee this would not be an issue.

This brings me to my point about that games forum, people should be allowed to express their opinion without being attacked by others. These days it seems like tha_con hunts around the forum, looking for any post that is critical of Sony or positive about the 360 or Wii in any way. It seems like more often than not, as soon as tha_con starts posting, no matter what the thread is about, it almost always goes off topic on some random tangeant about how the PS3 is superior. I'm not trying to personally single him out or attack him for this, but it is happened so many times in so many threads that is seems like it is much more than just coincidence at this point. Whether blatantly or subtely, he always seems to instigate a problem. Many in the forum are getting sick of it, and that's a fact.

You mean anytime I post anything about the ARTICLE (not to the author) and people immediately jump on me because I don't agree with it. If I call the AUTHOR of the article stupid, I'm jumped on simply because I don't agree that the PS3 is dead in the water, or that it sucks monkey balls right now.

Just for those two facts, people flip out and think I'm some unmovable fanboy. Point blank, I now own all 3 consoles, a DS and a PSP. I'm as far away as you can get from a "fanboy". But the fact that I see more bullshit about PS3 and decide to toss in my two cents labels me as such. here's a news flash: It's not popular to talk bad about the Wii or 360, so there isn't any stupid shit floating around about it.

my suggestion on improving the forum RIGHT NOW is to ban the three who can't get along :rolleyes

you guys seriously need to kiss and make up, it's getting ridiculous. every thread pretty much gets turned into an argument with the same three (or four) people arguing with each other and turning the conversation to the same thing. i'm not going to point fingers; i can read, and you're all guilty of it. grow the fuck up guys. look at what you turned this SUGGESTION THREAD into... seriously pathetic.

Well, I've noticed the arguing only happens if you don't have something negative to say about Sony, so maybe that's the cause.
Interesting, as I've noticed it only happens when you come into a thread and either:

A) Attack someone for their opinion

B) Say something completely biased or opinionated

or

C) Go completely off topic on a random tangeant about how Sony is the best and MS & Nintendo are inferior

I'm sorry for the arguments that you end up reading through, and I see your point, and for that I apologize.

However, I think it is stupid to let someone rant about their opinion(a very biased one at that), and tell it like it is fact, while attacking anyone that thinks differently. Why should I let his biased rants go uncontested? I hate to point fingers, but it is pretty clear who instigates the problem time and time again...

everyone has their own opinions biased or not, and it's their opinion. we are here to exchange ideas, make conversion, and talk about topics other than cars.

While I like the ideas and conversation that goes on, it's getting a bit ridiculous in this forum. you guys attack each other now for no reason other than reading too much into posts.

Con, you're very opinionated and some of your posts come off as antagonistic, but you know that already. People post stories and articles no matter how unfactual you may think they are, because *usually* they come from fairly reputable sources. many times it seems like you take things personally, when in fact, this is the internet and sarcasm is usually lost in translation.

blackdelsol and others, i've noticed recently you guys just jump on cons shit for no real apparent reason (as in this thread), and get pissed when he retaliates with sarcastic comments. this is the internet, and we will disagree. lets stop trying to change his mind, and let him voice his opinion. he doesn't always spout bullshit, but presents a different side than what most people hear.



HOWEVER, I'll be the first to admit that journalism has seriously declined recently in terms of fact-checking and source checking ("sources say..." what sources? where?). Sometimes you have to call BS from what you've read or heard that contradicts a story.

in short, stop being little boys and grow up; all of you. post your opinions, and if they differ, get over it. there's no reason to argue about everything, but if you think someone is wrong, post why they are wrong. simple. :)

Well, the thing is, if I see an article that I find to be inaccurate, or simply rumor, and I comment on it, in any way, negative or not, saying it's wrong, the retaliation is exponentially larger than my initial post.

"PS3 doesn't sell well in Europe"

me: "PS3 sold 600K in EU at launch, that's pretty good I'd think"

retaliation: "dude your opinion means dick, it's only because it's not supply constrained, 600K is trash, shut up"


I don't think I'd be such an asshole if I could possibly refute some bogus article that is easily proven wrong without people freaking out because I'm *not* shitting on the PS3 for whatever reason. I hold it to the same standard I held my 360 to last year. It had a lot of potential coming, not "Hey, this piece of shit isn't worth $400, fuck this machine".

But that's the view people here apparently have. Instant satisfaction (in a 4 year lifespan) or nothing at all.

the one thing that makes this forum interesting is the difference of opinion. It just when people start taking things personally, and arguments get started. . . now they're getting started constantly, and it really is destroying alot of threads. best thing to do is post up whatever facts we have or whatever, to refute OP's that are wrong.
