Apart from this wonderful forum which is clearly the best, obviously, where else do you like to discuss Games online?
(In other words, I post in quite a few places, but is there an amazing gaming forum that I'm currently unaware of?)

Why yes, Axis, I'll tell you some other places where you can discuss games so that you don't have to come here... WAAAAAAAAAIT A MINUTE. Evil or Very Mad 

In seriousness, I don't go anywhere else that I could honestly recommend. I'm still at CVG but the Nintendo community there is tiny, and I only go to ONM to comment on the articles.

I prefer this lovely place called Twitter. I heard it's Balladeer's most favourite, you know  Razz

Honestly, I don't like Twitter for discussions. It works for just venting a thought, but for discussions I much prefer here.

Asides from SGamer, I use Reddit a fair bit - their games subreddit though, as the gaming subreddit is a cesspool of "HEY GUISE, REMEMBER THIS GEM?" with a picture of Ocarina of Time or something attached. Also, the subreddits for each individual game series is pretty good, with Dark Souls and Fallout being highlights.

If this place is a civilised, occasionally inebriated, gaming discussion among friends, Twitter is shouting your gaming opinion out though a megaphone. At the entire world.

Yep, I asked because most gaming forums I know (even the places I post) are infested with trolls... Especially if you want to discuss Nintendo in a civil manner.

Also, any place you avoid like the plague? I avoid N4G. Its meant to be an all-format news aggregator, but the place is full of obnoxious Sony fanboys. So much so, they censor any news from sites painting Sony in a bad light. (My friend got banned for submitting news about their financial difficulties.) Also, they still don't have a 3DS section on the front page.

Apart from here (natch), I more or less avoid all forums. Retro Gamer can have it's good days and bad, but I can't be arsed with anywhere else. ScrewAttack was the worst. Americans everywhere.  Sick

Here with the odd side of the uni's videogames society facebook page. Does skype count too? Most of the stuff we talk about whilst playing games is gaming related!
Not a fan of much discussion on twitter for fears of people telling you off for spoilers.

Here and Twitter, I've got over 800 followers and all I really talk about is games. So must be doing something right.

Mostly a place called N-Europe.com (formerly Cube-Europe and N64-Europe). I've been there for over 11 years.

Only here and StarDot, but that's because the latter is the only place that acknowledges the BBC Micro's existence.

I know it exists, and of it's library of games such as Pac-Man Snapper, Jet Set Willy, Tempest.

But I don't know enough to really talk about it like other retro systems.

Thanks for the forum recommendations!

As expected, there's not many Nintendo-friendly forums out there. As for me, I mostly post here, twitter, NeoGAF and IRC (Internet Relay Chat).

I use IRC a lot. They don't want the whole internet to join though, so I can't actually point out the channel publicly.
