Says the guy who can't get people to join his prediction league lul :P 

... I actually have no idea how successful it's meant to be, nor do I care since it's not necessarily something I'm interested in (Sorry lol, I know you put a lot of work into it), but the number of entries does seem to be dwindling :o 

Well, that was uncalled for.

(I feel like I just wrote this...)

Nah, just a bit of banter :P I actually respect the work Kirby has been putting into his Prediction League, despite having nothing to do with it myself, lol

You are an evil soul.

By the way, does anyone care about the prediction league?

Most people care more about the notifications from the PL then the PL itself

Well, hopefully the more ways we find to TAKE vg$ from people (VG$ Store, Thread Wagering, etc.) - the more they'll be inclined to find ways to EARN vg$. And beyond the Game Database, the PL is next best place to earn...

Yeah, I can relate. I was that guy, for the 5 minutes it took for me to realize I could just turn them off.



The main reason I don't post much anymore (on any gaming forum, not just here) is that I feel like I don't have much to say in regards to gaming. Most of the games I play have been out for quite some time so there is no active discussion (last two games I beat were Ninja Gaiden and Castlevania on my NES Classic), and I don't find most of the other conversation warrants more than a one sentence post. There isn't really very much this site could do about that other than releasing interesting analyses of games/game design which is a lot to ask.

I appreciate all the work you guys are putting into this place (seriously, from a functionality perspective this site is miles improved from the state it was in a few years ago), but what we need is more from the user/content end, not from the site/charts (imo).

Yeah, with this thread having been as active as it's been so far, I'm very much confident that all we need is better threads. As a user myself, I've never been one to make threads because I didn't feel the need to, it used to be fine just going into other people's threads to talk. But over the years most of the people who made interesting threads left, and we got this scenario where there just aren't good topics to discuss.

My experience with VGC in recent months could be mostly summarized as "open the site, skim through hot topics, "ehh", back to Discord". And I think now that's most people's experience here, actually. All we need is for the hot topics to look better.



Ye i dont even remember the last good rolstoppable thread

1. D21lewis ALWAYS has the best responses.

2. On the prediction league : Yeah, I think interest is dying because without reliable weekly charts, what's the fuckin' point? I really miss doing it, but given the state of things it feels like a waste of time. Having read through some of the sticky forums I totally understand where you guys are coming from and do not want to "bash" you guys at all but, I just fundamentally disagree with reporting shipment data. Lest ye forget E.T. (Atari) shipped over 1.5 Million copies. Would that be useful for chart/sales analysis or Game performance thread discussion?? No.

3. I love this site, and If there are "entry level" or whatever things you could use volunteers for I'd be happy to help if I can.
Oh! AAAnd Thank you very much for bieng the ONLY site dedicated to this. Knew it, and have thoroughly appreciated it. I also still get annoyed by people in RL who try to make up their own sales "facts" about games like "Metal Gear 2:Snakes Revenge sold MILLIONS on the NES". Love bringing those people to Jesus when pulling this site up to pwn them.
