As this issue doesn't affect me at all, I'll be abstaining from voting.

I don't play video games but it is insane that there is a rule against starting a thread about specific video games.

Can we close this and move on? I want to talk about God of War in a God of War thread today, before it comes out tomorrow.

i don't know if a new sub-forum is required (though i wouldn't object to it), but it would definitely nice to be able to silo conversation on specific games or game series'. topics get lost too quickly in that master thread. i could see the need to keep a catch-all thread for smaller scale releases though.

We’re gonna need a thread where I pontificate on the best and worst late 90’s Playstation platformers.

I want a thread of the worst games of all time. Perhaps a poll.

Journey Escape for the 2600.

I got it for $7 at Radioshack in 1985.

You were supposed to lead the band members to an escape pod through frenzied fans and photographers.

There were also vaguely anti-semitic promoters and lawyers that you had to make your way around.

I've never cared so much about the outcome of a vote in my entire life.

yeah there's no solid "rule". Just like there isn't a rule that mjd can't start a thread for every concert ever.

Every time I made a thread about a video game, they were merged to the all inclusive thread. There are SO many interesting threads about video games that can be created and this injustice must end.

Given that there’s a fuckin’ Star Wars subforum I think a Video Games sub makes lots of sense.

I think the subforum makes the most sense. That way people who aren't interested can just ignore it.

Also easier to get caught up if you're not glued to RM all day.
