    i'm guessing a lot of you out there love videogames, and sciforums.com. i do to but i hate that videogames are included in the "computer science and culture" section. any thread relating to them gets lost between all the other ones, and many people who would like to discuss this subject don't even know where to look for it. so that's why i'm making a poll to see how many of you are in a favor of giving videogames its own section.

    i think it would be pretty pointless, since no actual intelligence would be being created, itd just be a specilized cesspool.
    leave them where it is, cause methinks there dont seem to be that many threads bout it anyways.

    you are probably right. however i think the cause for not being many threads bout it is it doesn't seem to be a section that clearly contains videogaming. i know there are more profound issues to discuss, i usually priorize them too(heck, i'm a political science and international relations student), but distractions are also a part of life. not everything has to be always about "serious matters".

    Video game threads can go in Art and Culture. That, or Art and Culture can be balkanized into Movies, Music, Books, Video Games, and so on. Besides which, there are dozens, probably hundreds, maybe thousands of video game forums on the internet, so one more doesn't seem necessary.

    perhaps i missexplained myself. i didn't mean a whole forum just for videogaming. just an independent section within a forum. is there a way change the title?

    "there are dozens, probably hundreds, maybe thousands of video game forums on the internet, so one more doesn't seem necessary." This argument could be applied to almost any topic on which has forum on this webpage, so i'm very confident when i say its not a valid one.

    you are right to be very confident, for i agree with you.

    however, there arent as many forums about the topisc in here as there are for games, especially under one 'roof'.

    I do not think that a video games forum would be very productive.
    It would really be something like the cesspool. Or can you have really
    interesting discussions about games?

    I'm all for a videogaming section. I would love to know what games people here are playing and I can actually brag about my prowess and clan in Joint Operations without fear of a stoning

    I agree. Video gamers should not be segregated. Hence, I oppose segregating video game threads into a single forum.

    Touche!

    Well, let's approach this differently. A lot of people have had their needs accomodated for, it would only b fair if us gamers had a little area to ourselves.

    Someone here (I don't know who *whistles* ) could moderate it.

    What's wrong with using Culture, Free Thoughts, or SciFi, as appropriate?

    Because they don't fully accomodate video games. It is the only mainstream interactive medium you know

    im all for a games section, it would be pretty cool, and yes, you can have an intellectual discussion about computer games, depending on what games you play
