Good game forum?

Other than here of course! Are there any video game forums out there that aren't overpopulated with 14 year olds with crappy grammar and typing skills? I'm having a hard time finding one.

A bunch of people from this forum started 8 Bit Brigade, but I try not to pimp it on here. Front page is currently under construction, but forum is flawless. http://forum.8bitbrigade.com/index.php

We deal more with Xbox Live games, so if you want good Wii/PS3/NDS discussion, it's not the place for you. If you like a lot of threadjacking and tomfoolery, check it out.

Cheapassgamer is good, as is neogaf. I hardly post on either of them, but there's never a shortage of information about anything just out/in the pipeline.

Are you looking for news, upcoming game information, etc?

Or are you looking for a more community based site with some news, game posting, such as DVDTalk?

Honestly, this is one of the better ones.

I vote for CAG too - lots of traffic over there.

This is the best by far IMO. A bit slow traffic wise, bu the tight moderation makes it the only real readable forum for me.

CAG is ok, but still too much fanboy bickering, flame wars etc there. Just not as bad as Gamefaqs, ign, 1up.com etc.

CAG is ok. Some good discussion, but there's enough of the typical online message board type talk that it can get annoying.

Gamefaqs is actually really good if you're looking for discussion on a specific game, and are able to filter out the crap. Because there's a separate forum for every game, the trolls usually only go for the bigger hits... it you want to discuss something like, say, Super Robot Wars Taisen or an import game, it's a great place to go.

But not a/v geeks like avsforum's video game forum. All they do there is bitch about how the games look and sound. They spend more time obsessing about games looking and sounding perfect in the home theater and what stuff they support than actually playing them IMO

CAG was OK when I frequented it but it got blocked at work. No big loss, it tended to have lots of fanboys and flamers. But not as bad as Gamefaqs.

I only read about videogames here and in AVS. Yeah, I actually like the Xbox forum in AVS, and also the PC area.

Thanks for the suggestions... I'll check out lcvg.com and CAG, those sound like the two best for my purposes.

I'll step up and defend Gamefaqs as well. It sure does get a lot of immature posters, but the reliability for a response is incomparable. Especially for lesser known titles, since, like fujishig said, there is a separate board for each game (and each system as well). So if you wanted to ask a specific question about a particular unknown title (Super Robot Wars Taisen, imports, old-gen games, etc.) Gamefaqs is a great place to do that.

I digress, though, since bdshort's meaning of the topic was to find a video game forum specifically void of grammar-troubled juveniles... and many good suggestions were already made.

BTW I also read AVS's videogame forums and they're pretty good too.

I like CAG, but I've noticed something there. Threads come and go very quickly. It seems like nothing is ever discussed (in one thread) for more than a day.
