Video Games Forum Rules:

 1 Fighteer, Tue, 11th Oct '11 1:01:45 PM from the Time Vortex Relationship Status: Dancing with Captain Jack Harkness
I will EXTERMINATE your unhappiness!
Welcome to the Video Games subforum. To keep things orderly, here are some basic rules to follow.


  • First, read The Rules. Everything there applies here.
  • One thread per game. Even if a thread hasn't been posted in for a while, it's preferable to necro it rather than start a new one. "Search forum titles" is your friend. Exception: if the old thread bogged down in a Flame War or wild tangents such that reviving it would do more harm than good.
  • All games in a series are usually discussed in the same thread, unless doing so would disrupt an existing conversation or a franchise splits into several distinct series.
  • Stay on-topic. It isn't On Topic Conversations, but by nature this forum works best if people stick to a thread's subject.

What belongs here

  • Discussion of specific games/series/franchises.
  • Discussion of topics about video games in general — music, genres, companies, conventions/shows, major news items, favorite games, etc.
  • Recommendations about video games have their dedicated thread.

What doesn't belong here

  • Complaint threads will be locked and deleted. This specifically includes threads to discuss what you liked about bad games, as well as "unpopular opinions" threads.
  • Political topics that are only peripherally related to gaming go in the On-Topic Conversations forum.
  • Discussion of piracy and warez. Related: Why [Company X] sucks and therefore you feel justified in pirating from them. See also the main forum rules regarding discussing illegal activities.

Banned Topics

  • Mass Effect 3's single player campaign. (Not multiplayer.)
  • Games cut by P5.
  • The 2014 Zoe Quinn controversy (aka "GamerGate").

Additional advice

  • If you're discussing a game/series/franchise, just make the title the name of that game. No need for modifiers ("X to be released soon", "Awesome new Y in game X", because the thread will inevitably become a general discussion anyway.
  • If you're discussing a news article about a specific game, check to see if it would fit better in the game's existing thread.

Thanks and have fun!

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
