Many new people won't know me, the "old" ones will most likely remember me as an unpleasant person to argue with.
I enjoyed my time here but this forum has gotten to a point where discussing isn't even fun anymore. The site is now even more favoring Sony than it always did, the selection of the mod team since the last months (and almost years) is a clear indication of that. But if your userbase is uneven, how can the moderation team not be? I don't blame personal favorites, though - no one can say he is objective when he clearly has a favorite "thing".
I have many good memories of this site and forum, I really liked arguing with ethomaz when he was not permabanned, as well as with other people, proving them wrong, showing them where their personal preference was stopping them for seeing what is wrong in their behavior and line of arguing, reasoning, whatever. One of my favorite threads was when ethomaz was arguing that Forza only sells because of bundles when GT5 was one of the most bundled games on PS3 ever - epic!
I will always grin when I see how people like GribbleGrunger try to pretend to be objective (on various sites, mind! neogaf (where he's juniored), n4g, here, just to name a few) but I also don't know if he now just admits that he is one of the biggest fanboys, perhaps besides Kerotan, on this forum. But guess what? That's completely fine! If they feel better when they believe they chose the "right" company to throw money at, so be it. It only gets unhealthy when we reach "The Order"-levels where Gribble was banned several times because people like me :) just presented facts about the game length and its shortcomings. I have to say that this was actually funny to observe The whole thing around "the game of forever" was also strange to see, to be honest.
Either way, I think in the end discussions were not really discussions here anymore, also thanks to the moderation. The current state of users show a clear Sony preference, is almost only about console wars and reaffirming what people think about companies anyway.
I wonder how the site has statistics about the forum usage and active members who log in every day but I feel it's only a fraction of what it used to be when i registered here.
I can almost hear a gasp of relief that I'm finally gone and believe me - the same applies to me.
So, farewell brothers and sisters of VGChartz. I wish you all the best, don't take gaming too serious and have fun with gaming! That's what we all should agree with, right? In the end it comes down to have fun playing games, that's why we invest our time and money to them - not to argue with other people
Yours,
        walsufnir

P.S: And yes, the strange sub-culture of Nintendo lives on here but they never really catched my attention anyway - they always did their own thing anyway (at least in my perception) - I still hope the Switch will do good, though!

You should become an Atari fanboy. Soon, when the wonderful Ataribox releaases, we will take over VGChartz.



People only think this is a site preferring Playstation when they ignore Nintendo ... which you kind of just admitted to.

The Nintendo vs Playstation arguments are a lot more interesting then whatever could be said about Microsoft.

Still, I actually did think this was a Playstation centric site when I joined. I remember thinking that CGI Mod was a playstation fanboy. Hehehe ... my views were certainly funny back then ...



Is cgi not a Sony gamer^?

Welcome back op!

01/22/17 21:34 CGI-Quality Ban Other ((Spamming and Trolling) This post needlessly takes things off topic and seems to be accompanied by an agenda. It's also spam to point out that the site is partial to PlayStation just due to the name. You have the capability of a good conversation, as I've seen, so when you return, let that be the method you choose when having discussions.) Banned 5 days 8262129
12/14/16 00:14 Carl2291 Ban Trolling (There's really no need for this one, despite what people may have said in the thread itself. If you see problems with how people are posting then you have many options infront of you; Reporting, ignoring, sending them PM's and actually replying to them in-thread without being antagonistic yourself. Due to VGC's bans being removed at a specific time, I'm giving you 3 days for this instead of 1 (Just like everyone else getting banned here). Any bans following this using the progression system should also be kept at 3 days.) Banned 3 days 8196773
10/14/16 15:21 CGI-Quality Warning Trolling (Between this: (http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8099432) and (http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8099432), you've stepped over the line. You can disagree with posters in there and not stoop to this sort of level. ) 8099442
05/29/15 13:40 starcraft Ban Flaming (Didnt actually hit ban last time...) Banned 1 days
05/29/15 12:54 starcraft Ban Flaming (Banned for a mixture of comments in this thread - this was the worst. I can see you have made a tangible effort to avoid crossing lines - but you should have bailed out before attacking the OP so much (you can report OPs like that and we can see about editing them)) Banned 1 days 7313904
04/10/15 15:51 Leadified Ban Flaming (It seems the intention of your post was to just to bait and mock ethomaz in a thread he does not participate in. This has already caused needless drama in the thread and it breaks Rule 13. "Disparaging, insulting, or baiting comments about users who are not participating in the thread.") Banned 5 days 7210757
01/06/15 14:56 Mr Khan Ban Flaming (This post was totally unneeded.) Banned 5 days 6969392
10/01/14 02:11 Mr Khan Ban Flaming (STAGE wasn't even in the thread, so i fail to see the point here.) Banned 3 days 6713326
09/24/14 16:11 Mr Khan Ban Flaming (You held out four months, so i'll hold the length constant. This is, however, the epitome of a flaming post.) Banned 1 days 6699534
09/01/14 17:00 Conegamer Warning Other (Don't make such comments on the wall of a banned user (tbone in this case). It's still against the rules after all, but on this occasion and only this occasion, a warning will suffice.)
05/14/14 15:02 Mr Khan Ban Flaming (Flaming Sony fans.) Banned 1 days 6306181
04/18/14 16:05 starcraft Warning Flaming (Come on, you know these sorts of comments are not acceptable, especially in a thread like that! I am *pretty* sure you were just kidding, so I decided no ban was necessary...) 6237044
04/03/14 13:18 Mummelmann Warning Other (Don't get drawn into this spiral, it doesn't serve any purpose and I know you know better. These "you always do this" posts are in no way improving upon the topic.) 6202178
12/20/13 21:34 yo_john117 Warning Other (Posts like these are really quite bad for thread discussion and really only ensure that the thread gets de-railed. Instead of saying you're going to report someone, skip the post and simply report them.) 5909178
08/01/13 11:22 Kantor Ban Flaming (That's a roundabout way of flaming, but it's still flaming.) Banned 1 days 5556922
07/24/13 04:56 yo_john117 Warning Sig Length (Please shorten your sig so it's less than 270 pixels tall.)
07/23/13 19:16 TruckOSaurus Warning Flaming (Derailing the thread by bringing up a user who isn't even participating in the discussion. Comment on the topic at hand or don't post at all.) 5534135
06/05/13 14:05 amp316 Warning Flaming (Please do not call other members simple-minded. It's extremely insulting.) 5400065
05/22/13 22:34 axumblade Warning Other (Your quote trees are entirely too long. I shortened them. Please try to keep them under 4 quotes or less.) 5365615
04/06/13 16:25 axumblade Warning Spamming (Please try to leave more than 1 word answers. There is no real openness to debate/discuss when you just type "no." and it's also considered spamming. ) 5262846
04/05/13 21:00 sega4life Warning Sig Length (Sig edited - Size - 9mbs is over the 1mb limit) 5260443

If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

I always thought you and the other Cartman were the same person.

But good for you that you apparently have never visited the million Nintendo threads or else you might've quit sooner. Sony fanboys are bad but try to cross them with Microsoft fanboys and add both victim complex and superiority complex and you have Nintendo fanboys. And they vastly outnumber the Sony fanboys on this site.

Well, have fun wherever you go.

There is another cartman? Blasphemy!

Edit: Oh, Rol is still rolling? I think if he leaves, he shuts the door of vgc behind him.



Hey, take care of yourself.
