    What's your point? You want us all to join IGN?

    Or you love GR too much, IGN is not for you?

    Or you love little kids who choose games poorly, and will thus not be very bright in choosing the right stranger's car to get into (your car).

    ...but they're all IGNers. What good'l that do? It'll make us like them, buying whatever game we rate highest.

    That would be terrible, because every single one of our reviewers is sarcastic as hell. That one guy'd be playing Limbo of the Lost like "Man, what a game! No wonder De-Ting rated it so high!"

    I'm trying to steer people to a better website. One that isn't ruled by advertising and hype.

    ...We just have to ask ourselves, do we really want a lot of IGN00bz0rdouchebaggayfagtbagspamfragasslags joining our quaint GR community? Of course I'd like it if more people turned to GR for most of their game purchases, but that doesn't mean they'll also stop being complete dunderheads.

    You also have to ask yourself, could you put up with more crap if it meant a larger audience for your favorite site? Think about it. That's exactly what I was thinking of when I put a link here. I knew that the 'regs' wouldn't want more people.


    Of course, no one will come here anyway, so it's all meaningless. They look at you just like you look at them.

    Guys, I'm sure our process of auto-banning 8-year-olds and spamwhores can also involve Ign-fags as well!

    Well that's okay, as long as I know better.

    But it's not that we don't want more people here, it's that we don't want more garbage here.

    I don't give a damn if they read the reviews here. The reviews are still the best around, despite not being that great, and more people need to see them.

    But goddammit they're going to come to the forums. And if the LiveChat existed they'd go there too.

    Also, 19,000 posts? You need to find something better to do.

    In the beginning at-least, I mean, I came from the depths of hell and yet I eventually became a decent, somewhat, not really, poster.

    Well, unlike here, people there will actually respond within minutes instead of hours. How many posts have I made here in a year? Exactly.

    How many posts do you average per year?

    That doesn't excuse the fact that you've posted 19,000 times. On IGN.

    Yeah dude, if this topic was posted on the IGN boards, it'd already be on it's third page, and twenty six new topics would be above it.

    Which is why I'm trying to get people to come here. Simple, if you think about it.
