General Gaming forum

Due to the amount of Halo 4 threads in The Flood, would it be wise to create another forum dedicated to non-Bungie games? Off-topic threads would obviously remain in The Flood but discussions about non-Bungie games would be redirected to the aforementioned forum. So, thoughts?

    Dedicated forums don't always work. Look at the amount of Halo topics in the Underground. Like I mentioned OP, blops 2 will dominate flud's discussion next week. Gamers are fickle.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Recon Number 54 It may seem like a good idea to attempt to compartmentalize and segregate various discussions, but think about The Flood for just a moment. Do you really think that the populace would willingly and gleefully allow their discussions to be segmented out like that? Any and all gaming into a new forum and all off-topic (but non-gaming) discussion in The Flood? Sooner or later, the smaller you divide a population, you will end up losing the critical mass that drives and encourages people to participate, even in topics that they may have typically passed over. If we were to make gaming discussion not permitted in The Flood, lock/warn people to post in some new forum, it would (IMO) stifle the dynamic of The Flood.[/quote] Come to think of it...I think you're right. The Flood might lose its edge.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] EL Don't worry OP, by Tuesday Halo 4 threads will be gone.[/quote] Don't get me wrong, I'm planning to get Halo 4. But probably because I don't own the game, I can't really engage in discussions about the game.
