    I knew someone would make such a remark, so I came up with this reply:
    "It's a thread about too many threads about a particular game (not about the game itself)."
    Does that work for you? [​IMG]

    Maybe we should have ***official review thread*** for each new game.

    I like the "official" thread idea. It seems to work well in the Home Theater Software area.

    What I'm tired of is seeing 'TMB' in topic headers. Is it too long to spell out what the letters stand for? I still have no clue what TMB is, and there's 3 threads on it going now!
    Enough with the abbreviations in topic headers. If saving space is your concern, don't worry, there's enough room.
    Imagine, if you can, someone that doesn't spend every waking day playing video games. They stumble into this forum out of curiosity or genuine interest, can you imagine what it must look like to them? I am semi-indoctrinated, but damn, all the acronyms are ridiculous. You've got to do some major sleuthing to figure what people are going on about. Just silly. At least put the title in the Topic header! How hard is that?
    'GBA sucks'
    'GBA rocks'
    'TMB is tha bomb'
    'SOL is not as good as TH:ROP'
    I mean, come on!

    Thanks Gary! After several unsuccessul attempts at figuring it out, I found myself in the fetal position shaking in the corner of my cubicle. I feel much better now.

    It's so true. The post launch dry spell is just starting to come to an end. I've been dying for a new game since Christmas but TM:B is the first one that got my interest and money.

    Can anybody start an ***official review*** thread or only and moderator?

    That's actually a good point. A newbie to the video game industry more than likely won't have a clue what TMB stands for... but then, if you're a newbie, spelling out Twisted Metal Black may not help much either. I mean, would you honestly know Twisted Metal Black is a game that recently came out for the PS2? oops... I mean, Playstation 2. [​IMG]

    As far as acronyms are concerned have a look around this site. Every area has acronyms and it doesn't seem to be a big deal. When I go to another area and don't know what an acronym stands for I do some research (or use some common sense).
