    Should BattleForums go beyond a Blizzard Entertainment Forum and have forums for other games? Maybe have a Grand Theft Auto Forum? I don't know. What do you think?

    No. Look at CS.

    After I thought about it for a while, there are so much other gaming forums competing that BattleForums, us, are getting ignored or left out. We created CounterStrike Forums when it was already out. What we should do is create forums for upcoming games rather than games that other gaming forums already have members for.

    RIght! But it has to be carefully selected, as all said. But gta is a very popular game. The whole forum should be about all three gtas if one is made of gta.

    I cannot think of many other games that would attract many more people to the forums.

    I voted for more forums.

    Although We are Blizzard exclusive, we should open the doors to different games. Skuzzy would spin in his grave if he were to see that, but I think we could try and do better than what happened to the CS forums.

    You won't find another FPS that's multiplayer is as large as CS. It was the only choice at the time. Oh and there are already very large forums for the Battlefield and Grand Theft Auto series of games.

    The only game I would think that could be chosen is Quake 4. It's coming out soon and will have a good number of players. It will also be very popular for online leagues and tournaments, and for lans.

    Anyway, these are just FPS's. I don't know what you would choose for the other game genres that would work.(We already have the best RTS's and RPG/MMORPG's)

    Quake 4
    - Popular
    - Not yet released
    - Going to have a large multiplayer base and a strong singleplayer.
    - Awsome multiplayer(Going to be very much along the lines of the earlier games in the quake series)
    - Awsome graphics(Doom III engine)
    - The LAN game
    - Will have online leagues and tournaments(without a doubt in my mind)
    - Come on it's Quake..

    Previews:
    http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/quake-iv/641379p1.html - Multiplayer
    http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/quake-iv/641311p1.html - Singleplayer

    Screenshots:

    If we were to choose a new game you know my pick.

    I belive it was c0rt that once said "We are battleforums not Blizzardforums" and he makes a good point. We should extend our bondries to increase active members... But once again game selection is the tough part... maybe we could put them on a trial basis... like say in 3 months if they dont generate users/traffic delete them or if the traffic is low do what we did to counter strike

    some game that can be discussed like gta. just make a gta section when the next one comes out.

    or one like metal gear solid or mmorpg games other than wow. i think mmorpg would be a big hit. go to ign or fileplanet and see which games are popular

    We already have a halo section. Zero need for a Halo 2.
