I am Fou-Lu over at Neogaf. I am honestly in shock over the potential loss of that site. It has been my main source of gaming news and discussion for 10 years. No matter its flaws the size of the community, quality of OTs, and level of discussion was/is second to none in video games. The loss of the Essential RPG, EZA OT, what JRPG are you playing, and various game OT threads are a huge blow for me. Plus the amount of love for lesser known gems was a beautiful thing. Say what you will about its 'far-left' leanings and heavy handed moderation, but it kept out the GamerGate crazies quite efficiently. I can't see anywhere replacing it effectively.
Yeah, lots of info is gone. I would always punch in "(name of game) NeoGaf" and I could read past threads about the game, or I could even bump it when it was a year old, and someone would ALWAYS come in and answer my question.
Reddit is cool, but it's not the same. Thats not really a forum.
