I don't know if it is biased, but I do know that a lot of the time I feel out of place because I don't share the same love for the Wii and Nintendo as many on these forums do. I feel as if I'm looked down upon because I like Sony. Often that gets me angry as you may have seen in my posts. So I see as the site itself is unbiased, but the members mostly have a bias toward Nintendo.

Yep, I agree. A lot of this is cyclical.

If your team is winning, you tend to go out on forums, gloat about it, and generally be an e-thug. If your team is losing, you just... stay home.

Three years ago, forums like these would have all been in your favor, Nightstalker. Not because no one liked Nintendo, but because all the Nintendo fans didn't enjoy coming to sites and discussing how their team "lost." Now that Nintendo is doing well again, the Nintendo fans are coming out of the woodwork.

Of course, in an ideal world, there would be no "teams," no "winning," no "losing." But that's how these things tend to play out, unfortunately.

<3 to all the Sony fans on the site.

@Shane. The 'Reality favours the wii' thing holds true when you look at sales which is really what this site is about.



You guys don't notice or appreciate when I lock anti-sony threads and ban nintendo fanboy trolls either though. :P

I have an idea, An option to show which console you support, Can only be changed every 1st of a month, each console has their personal forum that can only be visited by a supporter. And this stupid failure rate thing is just stupid, Mine hasn't broken cause I keep it well ventialed, so far away from a wall or heat source, and I doubt it will ever break. So guys lay off it. And Blue-Ray is pretty cool

I think this idea is brilliant and is exactly what these forums need. That way people can talk in peace about their console of choice without the haters coming in and ruining things. In fact I'd go one step more and make the mods have to put their console of choice and they would be excluded from the other two forums like everyone else and it would help get rid of claims and feelings of bias.

 Really bad idea. Segregating everbody would remove the entire appeal of the site to me. I only enjoy this place because of all the discussion that goes on, if everyone was segregated it would end up being.

P1: 'Console name is the best'

P2: Yeah it kicks everyone elses butt

Without anybody to make an arguement back. You need two sides to have a debate.

That would be so boring though...nobody would ever have any discussions...it'd just be constant patting on the backs of fellow fans...dull.

Believe it or not, it IS possible for people to have a reasonable discussion, even if they disagree.



LEFT4DEAD411.COM
Bet with disolitude: Left4Dead will have a higher Metacritic rating than Project Origin, 3 months after the second game's release.  (hasn't been 3 months but it looks like I won :-p )



Ill admit I am a N-Boy, but I try to stick to facts when I speak. My problem is when someone goes and makes a thread about Lair or Heavenly sword and says that they are the best games ever based on 2 minutes of gameplay footage that really only showed off the graphics, and that they are gonna outsell Halo and put it to shame... If someone wants to show me a thread where a Nintendo fanboy made some irrational argument about their game then show me. But I think that it's more that the Sony fanboys are making irrational arguments which even the administrators of the site recognize as bad. If you wanna say, "Lair looks like it has a lot of potential, it looks like they have the graphics nailed down. The few problems that have been noted so far look like they shouldn't be too hard to fix. Should they fix them this could be one of the strongest games in the Sony line-up." If a Sony person were to post something like that, instead of "It's official Lair is gonna PWN everything on the other consoles. When this comes out all you Wii boys are gonna wish you had PS3's. This is gonna make Halo look like shit." See the difference. If I was to talk about a Wii game like that I would get just the same treatment as you do.



Oh I my as well add this, obviously because admins are posting a thread like this they feel they have something to prove. So in reality Sony people are probably getting away with a lot more than a Nintendo person could get away with. They are probably looking for a good Nintendo lamb to sacrifice at this point.
