They are especially welcome, they have some insaders and people who have informations from Japan sales and Japan devs from first hand. I mean people like Chris 1964 would be very welcomed everywhere.

 

That was normal thinking when PS4 had worst 1st year ever in for any gaming hardware in Japan (it needed 49 weeks to hit first 1m), lotsa people (including me) thought that PS4 will not pass Vita LT with those terrible sales from first year, so that wasnt strange or "crazy" thinking. We also had here loads of people that said Switch will be fail, so what, people can be wrong.

 

I wouldn't call them Nintendo fanboys, but of course that Japan sales thread will have plenty of Nintendo fans when Nintendo was almost constantly dominating in Japan sales past 10 years.

They criticizing Japanese developers when they skipping Switch because it's obvious that Switch will be (it already is) huge in Japan.

Not just switch but when ps4 games skipped 3DS/Wii U too. This has been going on long before Switch was even revealed. 

And they were deluded fanboys regarding ps4 sales.  Did they really think ps4 sales would remain low when the inevitable awesome line up of software hit?  No they let their hopes cloud their judgement.  

I didn't pay attention before on those things for 3DS and Wii U, but hardly they were saying same things for 3DS and espacily Wii U that they are saying for Switch now, because it's obvious that Switch will be huge in Japan and Wii U didnt, and Switch has enough power and supports for all modern engines that 3DS and Wii U lacked, so now it has more sense for 3rd partys to do more ports for Switch compared to 3DS and Wii U.

When PS4 selling like crap for hole year and has worst 1st year ever in Japan, you are not "deluded fanboy" when you say that PS4 is selling like crap and that will have low LT sales. People mostly were saying that in PS4 1st year, later when PS4 start selling better nobady relly were saying that.

When NeoGAF sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing censorship, they’re bringing snowflakeism, their rapists [didn't even have to change this], and some, I assume, are good people.

Oh this made me laugh.



The pattern I'm seeing following the downfall of neogaf:

Staff of sites: welcome!!! Come and make yourself at home!! (and why wouldn't they, traffic means money)
Users of sites: oh god please don't come here now your bubble has burst, it was bad enough dealing with your bs when you were all in one place without that sh*t mudding our waters too"

It doesn't take much thought to ask yourself why communities across the net are saying no thanks to the influx, and come to the conclusion that people feel that way for a reason. 



Of course everyone's welcome - be they from GAF or wherever, so long as they follow the rules and leave their antagonism towards this site and its community behind.

You see that's the thing.  They actually were saying that pre Switch.  As crazy as that sounds.  Just shows you how bad the mentality is. 

 

Regarding ps4 it was obvious to evenn a blind man that when ps4 got suitable Japanese software releases it would then get better hardware sales.  

 

But even still when ps4 starting doing better they were in deniall. That's what happens when a bunch of ps4 haters on gaf let their anti ps4 bias cloud their judgement.  They look silly and end up with egg on their face. 



Used to be active here long before I joined GAF.
It was a site with a very large userbase and as such there were posters of all kinds and people of all types.

I enjoyed the site for the parts that spoke to me: the original art threads, the music appreciation threads, some of the news threads and personal threads in the OT where people would share about themselves honestly and in a supportive manner, the crazy E3 or Nintendo Direct Hype Trains, and more.

Personally I found more good than bad in the forum and tried to add my own meaningful contributions when I could, such as making the Get Well Iwata thread and poster - that will always be remembered as one of my high points on the site. It makes me sad to learn that a place that generally brought me happiness was a source of so much pain and frustration to others, and I was very angry to discover about the owner's behavior...

I'd rather not have them here, quite frankly.



I am currently sigless.

What have the majority of the individual posters done for you to make such a statement? Most of us were no different than the average poster on any other forum. That said, I’m seriously considering finding another site. No reason to be here if it’s going to cause animosity.

I really didn't mention that, I see that with Switch and I saw why people are saying that (from reasons I mentioned).

No it wasnt obvous at all and that why people are saying that PS4 will sell less than Vita LT, beacuse fact that PS4 had worst 1st year ever in Japan (even less than Wii U, Dreamcast and Vita) while on all other markets PS4 was making sales records.

Again, people mostly were saying that in PS4 1st year, later when PS4 start selling better nobady relly were saying that.
