Is it a bad thing that at the time of writing not one of the top 10 threads on the forum is actually about a particular game? I've only just stepped aboard the good ship AATG (how are we pronouncing the acronym by the way?) and was just trying to work out what the ethos of the new site was, especially given the site's name and parallels with certain other sites.

So what you're saying is that you'd be happy if the forum was purely about games, right?

How would that work then?

Oh no. I actually prefer the random shit, it just seems strange that on a games forum people seem so disinclined to talk about games.

Games are shit and it's clearly pronounced 'at-gg'.

Front page for games, dude. In fact, if you want a particular game talked about, write something thought provoking, submit it, admire your work, then ready yourself for arguing the toss about it.

It was much better in the old days. All we talked about was games. Then all these newcomers started showing up and it went to shit.

I'd be very surprised to see any games forum talk completely and utterly about games and nothing else.

As to the ethos of this site, the ethos is generally "Don't mod the fuck out of everyone because they don't like it and they don't need it" - which is why you'll find a lot more non-games topics and people generally being quite civil and having a laugh, than having your arse modded off by some numpty on something like the Edge Forums, capiche?

Sense be damned! Obscure code-words ftw! LOUD NOISES!



Plus it reminds me of Jenny Agutter.

Which would actually be a better shorthand for the forum - "I'm going down the Jen tonight".

Oh no! I was a 17ker in the old place and carried that stigma like some kind of bleeding wound. I thought I'd got in early enough to be one of the cool kids here. Oh well back to self loathing for me.

I wish. I bet she's still tidy down there.
