Even though a lot of people are under the impression that gamers are a bunch of geeks who lead hermit-like lifestyles, this is not true. If you are a gamer, you would agree that you too enjoy to socialise with fellow gamers while playing an online game.
There are a bunch of ways gamers interact with one another, but the one medium that’s stood the test of time is forums. In this post we take a look at some of the best gaming forums you could join.
This is probably one of the oldest gaming forums out there. It launched back in 1995 and serves millions of gamers to this day. The site offers different boards and forums for each game, ensuring that each gamer can easily join his or her community.
Originally one of Gaming-Age’s discussion forums, NeoGAF was launched in 1999. Due to some difficulties the forum was relaunched in 2004 as a separate entity. NeGAF is considered to be one of the most popular gaming forums in the world.
With more than 35 million users, GameSpot is one of the biggest gaming forums out there. It might not be in the same league us NeoGAF, but it boasts multiple forums and updated news on everything related to the world of video gaming.
IGN Boards boasts a wide array of lobbies and different types of forums. Their main focus is of course video gaming. The community here is great, which makes up for the site’s chaotic organisation of forums and lobbies. All-in-all a great forum to join!
Last but not least we have one of the internet’s largest online communities. Reddit’s gaming forum is chockfull of updates from other gamers, and loads of opportunities to socialise. For those hard-care gamers out there, join the subreddit /r/TrueGaming.
So, are you ready to get social and share your gaming experiences on some of these fantastic gaming forums? If you haven’t joined any of these before, it is worth a shot checking them out. And remember, interaction even via the web still is socialising!
